A prominent cleric, Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawy, said modern science had at last provided evidence that Mecca was the true center of the Earth.
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.
One geologist argued that unlike other longitudes, Mecca’s was in perfect alignment to magnetic north.
The meeting in Qatar is part of a popular trend in some Muslim societies of seeking to find Koranic precedents for modern science.
It is called “Ijaz al-Koran”, which roughly translates as the “miraculous nature of the holy text”.
Well. Iâ€™m glad thatâ€™s settled. I guess weâ€™ll have to be good little dhimmis and change all those schoolbook texts in the unclean infidel classrooms because the clerics say so.
In other news, the meeting also reviewed what has been described as a Mecca watch, the brainchild of a French Muslim. The watch is said to rotate anti-clockwise and is supposed to help Muslims determine the direction of Mecca from any point on Earth.
Anti-clockwise? Sure. Islam is always the direct opposite of a civilized society. What else is new?
