Time.now is set to wrong date

Hi guys, I was using Time.now method and when I look what value is stored in database, it is as follows which is not correct:

2000-01-01 06:17:01 UTC

Any idea where to make a correction? Thanks, Miroslav

Time.now pulls from the computer/hosting your code is running on. Is this being down on your machine or a remote server?
