And The Clock Rolls Back to... 800?

Muslim clerics and... um... "scientists"... want to get rid of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in favor of Mecca Time.
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.

...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.
I wasn't aware that there were Muslim scientists. I mean, if Allah is a capricious god not held to rules, then science is meaningless to Muslims.

But wait! There's more.
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.

It goes backwards, does it? Maybe Mark Steyn is right.
