uname giving wrong info

Hi guys/gals, I tried finding the answers to this prior to posting but didn't have any luck. this is the outputs from unname -a

Linux mouser #1 Fri Sep 1 01:48:52 CDT 2006 i686 athlon-4 i386 GNU/Linux
The time/timezone and date are way off. The date and date -u commands are accurate:

Thu Jun 14 21:49:35 EDT 2007
Everything looks good with the hardware clock and I have /etc/localtime linked correctly.

Any ideas how I can fix my uname problem?

the date in the uname command is the time & date that the kernel was compiled...

mine is:

bash-3.2$ uname -a
