B4B readers may wish to buckle their seat belts before reading further, because this story made me fall out of my chair.
Muslim scientists and clerics have called for the adoption of Mecca time to replace GMT, arguing that the Saudi city is the true centre of the Earth.
Hahahahahaha! I know Saudi Arabia is hot, but the “centre of the Earth!?!” Now that’s really hot! Do you have to take an elevator to get down there?
But upon sober reflection, we all know what’s at the center of the Earth: hell. Perhaps this is the truth of the Muslim religion hidden in plain sight for all to see — that the “religion of peace” is “centered” on Satan rather than God. It sure would explain a lot, wouldn’t it?
Mecca is the direction all Muslims face when they perform their daily prayers.
I don’t know about you, but when I pray, I don’t pray to a stone owl or some other terrestrial monument. I direct my prayers upwards to God. False idols are forbidden. Jesus will hear my words even if I don’t have a compass.
One geologist argued that unlike other longitudes, Mecca’s was in perfect alignment to magnetic north.
Unfortunately for him, the rest of the geologists laugh at him. What does “perfect alignment” have to do with anything? If Mecca was so important, then why isn’t it situated at magnetic north, hmmmm? Think about that.
He said the English had imposed GMT on the rest of the world by force when Britain was a big colonial power, and it was about time that changed.
This is a thinly veiled threat. Islam commands its adherents to convert or kill the infidel. The Arab world wants to become the next big colonial power. It’s all about conquest. We must resist.
And get this: there’s even a Mecca watch. How’s this for symbolism?
The watch is said to rotate anti-clockwise and is supposed to help Muslims determine the direction of Mecca from any point on Earth.
Yes, a watch that runs backwards! These crazy people want to turn back the clock, to make time run backwards, contrary to the laws set up by God Himself. Clearly putting the power to control global time in the hands of Muslim fundamentalists is the first step in allowing them to control the flow of time itself. This would stop progress in its tracks. The correct answer is “no.”
Look guys, you can make watches that run backwards and use funny scribbles in place of numbers in your own country, but don’t force it on the rest of us. We believe in freedom. Freedom of religion, and freedom from yours. If you want to believe you live at the “centre” of the Earth, fine. Stay there. Stay warm. And let the rest of us continue to live in the 21st century. Thanks.
Apologies in advance to Muslims who disagree with those who speak loudly and foolishly in their name, and especially to those who do not support terrorism and world conquest. I have no quarrel with you.
