Because we were thinking about the concept that time is a social construct. We were laying down another discussion that Filipinos don't have a word for "time" because it doesn't exist anyway, and that the Spanish only brought the concept of time to us (their word "hora"). So if there were a word in any Philippine language whose word for "time" does not even resemble the word "hora", we would be happy to be disproven on that claim.
Edit: Our claim was that time does is a social construct that there was once a civilization that did not have a word for it. Not, time does not exist.
