It's Mecca Time Somewhere

A group of Muslim clerics and scientists are calling for Muslims to stop using the western GMT and begin using a new Mecca Time.
A prominent cleric, Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawy, said modern science had at last provided evidence that Mecca was the true centre of the Earth; proof, he said, of the greatness of the Muslim "qibla" - the Arabic word for the direction Muslims turn to when they pray.

It's unclear how the Flat Earth Society will respond to this new center of the Earth theory.
