Mecca, the center of the earth?!!!

Reader comment on item: Mecca Mean Time?

Center of the earth is in the bottomless pit of the earth, that is still roiling with molten lava. This agrees with Dr. Pipes' comment #3.

Mecca, the Center of the earth! -- All because the black meteorite that the Muslims worship in Kaabah fell from heaven to cause the continental drift milennia ago? It's no wonder that there are a number of fault lines below that region of the Middle East!!!
