Which way would you bow towards Mecca?
And Christians and Jews would have another problem there, which they would share
with Muslims: which day is Friday, Saturday, or Sunday?
Muslims and Jews have had to deal with this for a long time, in regards to
living above the arctic and antarctic circles. The funner thing will be how
to deal with calendars when the days and the clock no longer correspond
Controversial important religious questions -
which direction to face when you pray, and how
to do it.
The answer is obvious: people will disagree,
divide, and fight to the death over it, while
declaring each other to be not true believers
I think it is necessary to say that this is
not just Muslims and isn't even just now
/mainly/ Muslims; clearly it isn't /not/
Muslims (obviously I'm counting "Those
Disgusting Heretics" as Muslims, sorryNOTSORRY)
but can you show me a religion that can't or
doesn't do this over either trivia (are beavers
fish?) or questions that only God can answer
and s/he hasn't (where did s/he used to live
before s/he moved into heaven)? Anyway, Muslims
havē often lived peacefully with different ideas
amongst them, although this might be achieved
by not counting "Those Disgusting Heretics"
as Muslims, which is what I was talking about
at the start of this paragraph.

I don't want to think about calculating the
date of Easter on Mars.
Big fight about that one already on Earth.
I think they only agreed on not having it
when Jews did despite it being specifically
the same holiday. I might be overstating
the importance of making it different from
Passover, or, confusing it with "when is
the Sabbath" (different for Jews, Christians,
Seventh-Day Christians, Muslims, who else?)
