Meccan Mean Time?
Sometimes I get the feeling that many of my Christian friends think that I 'pick on' Christianity too much and I am not leveling my wit and sarcasm at other religions that might actually be engaging in activities that might be light-years more ludicrous. To a point they are right and I tend to focus my energies in mocking some of the more asinine practices of my Christian brethren.
In my defense I focus on the followers of Christianity because two reasons:
1. Generally that's who I'm surrounded by.
And more importantly...
2. Because most other religons are so ridiculous and ludicrous that it feels like I'd be going after so much 'low hanging fruit'.
But you know what? That ends now. I will start going after the whack-o's of Islam. To that end...
A group of Muslim scientists (the irony is not lost on me) and clerics have come to a conclusion recently. This esteemed group has "called for the adoption of Mecca time to replace GMT, arguing that the Saudi city is the true center of the Earth".
Is this truly the biggest problem Muslims have to deal with today?
OK! I'll tell you what Mohammed you get your kids to stop strapping high explosives to their bodies and setting them off amongst other people you deem infidels, and we'll gladly make Mecca the new GMT. If that's all it would take I think we could get the rest of the civilized world on-board.
Though somehow, I think that would be just the first of the demands to come out of the Caliphate!
Lighten up Mohammed, you lost...deal with it!
