Muslim Innovations In Anti-Gravity
In this Telegraph article about the Islamic supremacist inititiative to replace Greenwich Mean Time with Mecca Time (which includes the construction of a triumphant "mega-clock" in Saudi Arabia that dwarfs Big Ben), we are treated to some of that world-renowned Islamic science we're always being told about (you've heard the story, we learned everything we know from them).
We're told by Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi that Mecca is in line with the Magnetic North Pole, while Abdel-Baset al-Sayyed of the Egyptian National Research Centre insists that people in Mecca are "less affected by the earth's gravity".
Anti-gravity in the heart of the Muslim world? It appears that we still have so much to learn from these enlightened folks.
