Time Cube is the controversial and unattractively-written model of reality proposed by Dr. Gene Ray. The way it works is that the fabric of the local universe is based upon four dimensions occurring at the same time, like the four sides of the cube (when in reality a cube has six sides). From this idea, he discovered that the four corners of the Earth turn at the same rate of speed and that the four sides (Midday, Midnight, Sunup, and Sundown) switch in direction countering the Earth's rotation, thus "creating" 24-hours in a day, the concept of Ante-Meridian and Post-Meridian time calculation, and the existence of time zones.
The reason Gene Ray's idea is usually panned as quote "proving human stupidity," is because not only does it attempt to throw all previous notions of fact-based modern and classical physics out the door and state that the Earth has four corners, it proves absolutely nothing about the world that hasn't already been thought of and put on paper... only now with bad grammar. Another reason that can be attributed to this unanimous judgement is also because Ray obviously uses the website as his own political soapbox, describing in great detail outweighing the amount of information about the Time Cube itself on how racial integration is destroying all of the master races and how school systems and religions are universally evil.
Since Gene Ray has continuously stated that he will reward $10,000 to the person that can actually disprove his theories (which since those theories prove nothing, there is nothing to disprove so it in effect disproves itself), can we users here at Oh Internet! have that money now?
