Re: Mecca May Be In The Wrong Place! "A detail. A mere bag a' shells..."
I first ran across this possibility in a BBC documentary making the exact same case.
The guy made it very well, as did the guy in the OP vid.
A detqil like this is like discovering that Jesus had three wives under three different names in three diffenent towns in ancient Isreal. It would have great impact, because one of the claims of Islam is that one cannot challenge or criticize the textual base of islam (Koran, Hadith and Sira).
It has that stutus due to being the word of Allah, directly given to old Mo. "All is as it is 'cause it has always been this way since Mo."
Take a big chunk out of the edifice of "unquestionality," and the edifice cracks. This would be a big, honking crack.
A much needed good thing to crack that aspect of this faith. "Unquestionality" undergirds the old, old aspect of this current, roughly 1500 year old religion. It's what has made it so unchanging in most aspects.
