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...
This is, of course, another attempt at Islamification of the World... one more feable attempt to rewrite history in order to legitimize their religion... or in this case, attempt to use fuzzy science to legitimize their point.
The report states that a scientist/geologist at the conference made claims that Mecca was in perfect alignment with the Magnetic North Pole, thus is the true center of the earth. As can be seen from the map, and is common knowledge to ANY educated individual: THE MAGNETIC POLES ARE NOT CONSTANT. The magnetic poles are always moving, and even change polarity every so often (on the order of tens - hundreds of thousands of years). The attempt to falsify science to advance your cause is the lowest of the low (Al Gore, take note here). Notice on the map that the Magnetic North Pole is actually in Canada, on the opposite side of the earth. To further debunk this wild claim, I can claim that any two single points are directly and perfectly in line... because they are two points... My conclusion: this guy is an idiot.
Look... I am not trying to beat up on Islam every day here. What I am doing is noticing a ridiculous trend of radical claims or radical actions that are further pushing Islamification on the world. In Britain, in Canada, in France... Islam is becoming a social changing force. There comes a point when the Xenophobic nature of humanity is going to have to say "enough is enough". Not to be coarse here, speaking strictly from an historical perspective, but if the Germans thought the Jews were bad, wait until they see Islam! I am not advocating a holocaust against Muslims, but an end to expansion of this very dangerous ideology.
I have seen NO evidence that Islam is a Religion of Peace.
I have seen NO evidence that Muslims just want to live in harmony with others.
I have only seen evidence that the intent of Islam is world domination, world control, and world rule under Sharia law.
Where do those values relate to freedom, peace, and liberty?
