Mecca Time

#2
If they want Mecca time, they can fcuk off to Mecca. Simple really.

We didn't own 3/4 of the planet just to let some flip flop wearing bedwetter try and change GMT now did we.

"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."

Yep ! So when the muslims own 3/4 of the planet, then we can perhaps have a rethink. Until then, ooops not the NAAFI Bar. Until then, errrr NO.

And apparently they have proved it scientifically. :roll:

Now all they have to do is prove scientifically that there is a big fairy who lives in the sky and who rewards you when you're good. Like Santa but for grown-ups.

If they do, do you think they'll spill that the 72 virgins you get for blowing yourself up are all 4 year old window lickers in leg irons?

PMSL, don't thing it will catch on, wonder if MC hammer will sue for copyright :D

Scientists who base their findings on a religeous belief. :roll:

Not much of a conflict of interests there then.


It is called "Ijaz al-Koran", which roughly translates as the "miraculous nature of the holy text".
Or

"We can make the koran say anything we want to ensure the populous is kept in its place"

In Western society, we call it bollox or David Ike.


I'm hoping the oil dries up soon so the sheep herders can go back to eating sand flies and the rest of the flip flops poke off back to the dark ages without the West having to take them semi-seriously.

A geologist - a scientific man one would hope - argued that since Mecca is aligned with magnetic north that Mecca is the obvious choice.

Have they not realised that magnetic north changes with time?

The paucity of rational argument beggars belief.

However, it is a very interesting reflection of how the religious ideology of Islam perceives its place in the world - as its very centre.

If he does, I'll use the Big 'C' defence - dyslexia - and say I meant 'Hamer, Norway'........ :roll:

I blame the jews for all this! Let me explain..... If Moses had turned right instead of left after crossing the Red Sea, the jews would have the oil and the arabs would have all those fcuking oranges!

At the risk of sounding stupid, what's magnetic north got to do with time? :?

Edited to add: I doubt the centre of the world has very many mosques (or any other building for that matter).

Presumably, everywhere lies on a line between the two poles!! I vote that we should go for somewhere different like Lagos.... Bugger, that's GMT too!

I have just balanced a compass on my John Thomas and it too is in perfact alignment to "Magnectic North". I would now like Greenwich Mean Time to be changed to "Von Harley Ccok Time". Ladies, be warned this change is coming :D

Even if magnetic north was fixed - Mecca isn't currently lined up with it anyway! Mecca has a current magnetic variation of a couple of degrees, surprisingly similar but in the opposite direction to the variation in London :wink:

I am impressed that a R*gh**d actually got off his backside and did some work, or did they pay someone as usual (filipino under threat of deportation) to come up with this twaddle.

So what exactly is lined up with magnetic north, which changes, the route from the mosque to the bogs or the north south wall. This is what happens when you let minority groups think they actually mean anything to us here, bloody PC brigade, look what they've done. At least this lot will sink back into obscurity when the oil runs out.

Just stick a compass on any thing and BOSH! It's lined up with magnetic North.
However GMT was invented to aid navigation at sea, and enabled us to rule the waves. Since London was a major trade city it was logical to have 0 degrees running through it.
