BAAL – The arches from the temple of BAAL are to be recreated in London’s Trafalgar Square and New Yorks Time Square. The temple of Baal (also known as BEL) was “supposedly” destroyed by ISIS, but the main Arch was left untouched and is to be recreated using the worlds largest 3D printer in April 2016. But the question remains – WHY?
It is said that BAAL (meaning LORD or GOD) was worshipped as the god of weather and agriculture. Children were given as human sacrifices and burnt in BAAL’s honour.
Now, why would NYC and London feel it “appropriate” to honour this kind of god by erecting its arch that stands at the temples entrance – in two of main financial cities in the world? Does anyone else think its weird and disgusting? Why would you even recognise such a God? Makes our stomachs churn!
The BBC wrote an article in December stating:
Alexy Karenowska, from the Institute of Digital Archaeology, which is behind the project, said she hoped it would help people understand how important it was to preserve cultural sites in war-torn countries such as Syria.
What is wrong with these people? Why not rebuild something that would promote (much needed) unity and peace. Im sure you guys could come up with something better than this.
What are your thoughts on this? Anyone else think that this feels wrong?
