They say that Mecca is 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.

Mecca is the direction all Muslims face when they perform their daily prayers.

The call was issued at a conference held in the Gulf state of Qatar under the title: Mecca, the Centre of the Earth, Theory and Practice.

One geologist argued that unlike other longitudes, Mecca’s was in perfect alignment to magnetic north.

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.

  • All your longitudes are belong to us!

    I heard the European plan to get the Magnetic Fusion reactor in Cadarache France working is all a ruse, a conspiracy to prevent the magnetic pole drifting into American territorial waters, off the coast of Alaska. Prince Charles recently let slip “We must keep the magnetic pole in international waters, we cannot allow the Magnetic Pole be commercialised or all the Equatorial forests will stop talking to me”

    I also heard that because the Magnetic Pole is drifting westwards the Muslim world are planning to move Mecca to Rome so that it can be kept in perfect alignment with the magnetic pole.

    Since the late 19th century, the Prime Meridian at Greenwich has served as the co-ordinate base for the calculation of Greenwich Mean Time. Before this, almost every town in the world kept its own local time. There were no national or international conventions to set how time should be measured, or when the day would begin and end, or what the length of an hour might be. The worldwide need for an international time standard became imperative.

    The Greenwich Meridian was chosen to be the Prime Meridian of the World in 1884. Forty-one delegates from 25 nations met in for the International Meridian Conference. By the end of the conference, Greenwich had won the prize of Longitude 0º by a vote of 22 in favour to 1 against (San Domingo), with two abstentions (France and Brazil).
