    Time Cube!

    Alright, here is the site. Now my question is this: Is the man who maintains this thing insane? Or is it just a joke? Or is it like other big discoveries in the past that were pooh poohed?

    Personally I cannot see it being just a joke. I mean, come on, that is a lot of work putting that up on the web for a joke. And the dude has lectured at MIT if I remember correctly. So not a joke maybe. I wonder about him actually having something there, but then I think of his presentation where he makes comments like 'You have been educated stupid.' That does not really help his case.

    Anyway, its always good for a laugh...lol

    That guy is completely off his rocker. And that website does not help his cause. If he wants to be taken seriously, he ought to have a more professional website.

    Greenwich Time is a Lie

    Your midday is someone else's midnight, someone else's sundown and even someone else's sunup. Do you know that time is a simultaneous 4 corner square that rotates to a 4 day time cube within 1 - 24 hour rotation of Earth? You are educated stupid and unable to know Nature's 4-Day Time Cube Creation.
    And next week, the crayfish are invading time your make. Get away. We're inferior to crayfish their pinchers prove it. You are educated stupid if you not believe.

    Oh, and this doesn't do much for him either.
    Away.

    Your father was a fish. You evolved
    from an egg laid in water, fertilized by
    a sperm fish swimming upstream -
    just as salmon swim up stream to
    fertilize female egg laid in the water.
    Maybe, you should worship a fish god.

    Huh
    Such is life.

    I have offered $10,000.00 to the evil
    bastards if they disprove Time Cube.
    They can't disprove it, so they hide
    like yellow-belly bastards they are.

    I am the wisest human and offer $1,000.00
    to the 1st to disprove my wisdom claim
    above the educated stupid.

    I will wager $10,000.00 that

    I will give $1,000.00 to any person who can
    disprove 4 days in each earth rotation

    I will give $10,000.00 to 1st education
    institution or to the 1st professor who can
    disprove 4-Day Time Cube. Evil professors
    ignore this as a challenge would indict them.

    $1,000.00 to 1st person to disprove Time Cube.

    Can't lose the $10,000.00, they cowardly
    ignore me.
    This guy can't make up his mind!

    I think I might email the dude today, and see if the $1000 / $10000 offer still stands. Then I will say that I want to disprove his theory. Then wait and see what he sends back.

    Alright, so this is what I sent the guy

    Dear Mr. Ray,

    On your site, http://www.timecube.com you seem to offer $10,000 for anyone who can disprove the time cube theory that you propose. Is this offer still in effect? I would like to prove your theory is incorrect.
    Now we wait and see...

    I sent this
    I find your interesting theories. I can't wait to hear from you, or have I already heard from you and I am waiting for my response?

    I look forward to hearing my response to your response. Or have I already responded? Please let me know.

    So from Gene Ray's website I got this:

    24 hours in midnight to midnight.
    24 hours in sunup to sunup...........
    24 hours in midday to midday.....
    24 hours in sundown to sundown.
    4 days in only 1 Earth rotation...
    4 simultaneous years of the seasons.
    Following that reason, I have calculated that there are actually 86,400 seconds in only one earth rotation. Allow me to explain.

    60 seconds * 60 minutes * 24 hours = 86,400 seconds every day! So then, if we wanted to number the seconds of each day, we could go from 1 to 86,400 (or maybe 0 to 86,399? ) and then there would be a 24 hour period

    between second number one of one day and second number two of the next day. You see? So that really makes 86,400 days. Hmmm...what happens if you think in terms of 48 hour periods?
