Or has it already began down there?
This entire thing is just plain ole stupid to me. Bah.
you've beat me to it. It's nearly 17:00 here in the UK, it's well into sunday in places like the far east. This is where the bible is starting to show it's age in my opinion; i doubt they had very much knowlege of things like time zones, after all very few people travelled around very far and if they did then it would take them such a long time that they probably wouldn't notice any difference in time, and of course portable clockwork timepieces didn't exist back then so it's not as if you would have noticed a difference in local time. What exact time zone is "god" supposed to have selected for this so-called end of the world? My guess is that it's going to be eastern seaboard time, since that just so happens to be where this "theory" started...
