Muslim call to replace GMT with ‘Mecca time’
It transpires that ‘Muslim scientists and clerics’ are demanding that the UK adopt ‘Mecca time’ because ‘the Saudi city is the true centre of the Earth’.
The clerics can freely fabricate whatever beliefs they wish on the matter, as they do on so much else, and Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawy does precisely that when he asserts that ‘modern science has at last provided evidence that Mecca is the true centre of the Earth; proof of the greatness of the Muslim "qibla".’
But quite how these eminent scientists have deduced that Mecca is the ‘true centre of the Earth’ is something of a mystery.
However, they organised a conference and called it ‘Mecca, the Centre of the Earth, Theory and Practice’, so it must be so, in theory and practice. There is an assertion that scientific truths were revealed in the Qur’an, and it is simply the work of clerics to unearth and publicise the textual evidence. According to a Muslim geologist, ‘unlike other longitudes, Mecca's is in perfect alignment to magnetic north’.
Mind-blowing stuff, eh?
And then we hear that ‘the English imposed GMT on the rest of the world by force when Britain was a big colonial power’, and it is ‘about time that changed’.
So, why not change it to Mecca time as a symbol of the Islamist agenda to wage jihad until the whole world is taken by force? And who then will be righteously justified in challenging the existence of ‘Mecca time'?
