Question about the Kabbah and the center of the earth

In the following video it is claimed that Kabbah is the center of the earth. What is the scientific proof of this claim. Furthermore what is the proof behind the mathematical number 1.618 that appears in the video. Is it true that the frecuency of the appearance of this number can´t be deemed to coincidence?

Thanks for your answers. Please give enough scientifical references to your answers.

Kabbah the center of the earth

Nota Bene: It is the Surface Center not the planetary center of the earth. That means that it into account the poles as being the most southwest and northern points.

    Since the earth is a sphere, isn't it's center not on its surface?

    What's the geometric definition of the surface center of an arbitrary sphere?

    This video just assumes that the Golden Ratio is somehow special, then tries to prove that Mecca lies on the "Golden Ratio" point of the earth's surface. The latitude may be correct, but there are two such latitudes which meet that requirement. The supposed proof that Mecca is on the golden longitude is ridiculous, in that it relies on a flattened projection of the earth whose end longitude and latitude are arbitrary and based on European dominance at the time that the standard was made. And finally, finding patterns is easy when you assume the patterns are there. (pareidolia or apophenia) Oct 24, 2011 at 19:19

    There is no widely-accepted definition for something like a surface center of a sphere, the center of a sphere is not on the surface of it. This question is therefore not answerable.

    To Joze: The goal of closing (not deleting) the question is to get you to edit it into a better question, not to open another question just as bad. Closing the question is just part of the "ask" process, when the problem is serious.
