    Thanks for displaying your complete ignorance of the motion of planets, not to mention simple geometry. It gives me a chance to play Alate teacher again.

    The rotational axis did change, but such shifts do not affect the length of an hour, or a day.

    A rotational axis is the imaginary line between the North and South poles, ie, the line on which the rotation acts. Put two fingers on opposite sides of an object and roll it — the line between your fingers is the rotational axis. It should be clear that, as long as the speed at which the object is spinning remains constant, where you place your fingers has no effect on how long it takes one point on the surface to make one revolution.

    Now, did you have something sensible to add?
    Where is the evidence for a global flood?

      Telling that you felt the need to bring Alate into this...

      So tell me "teacher", just what does affect the length of an hour?
      Well this is fun isn't it?

          No, so when does an hour extend beyond sixty minutes exactly and what accurate measurements are/were in place to record this linear scale of events?

            How are hours and minutes defined?

            Ever hear of leap years or leap seconds?

                There are always 24 hours in a day, as an hour is popularly defined as 1/24th of the time of about one rotation of the Earth.

                When the Earth was rotating slower, hours were slightly longer.
                we let go of the 360 day year because it no longer worked
                but held on to 7 day week 24 hour day 60 min 60 sec
