Rick Coombs states in
AMERICA THE BABYLON that he has enough
evidence to show that America is actually the Babylon that is spoken of
in the Bible that will fall in the last days. We agree with him on this
point. He further states that New York will be the first to be attacked
by this force from the "heavens". Again, we agree that the evidence is
truly compelling. We found it extremely interesting that this symbolic
event recently occurred in where else but NEW YORK CITY. Read on!
century statue to be repaired
Wednesday, October 9, 2002
NEW YORK (AP)--Conservationists should be able to restore a
15th-century marble statue of Adam at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
that toppled over and broke into dozens of pieces, the museum's
The life-size nude by Venetian sculptor Tullio Lombardo fell
after its pedestal gave way, Phillippe de Montebello said
"When your mission is to maintain great works of art, an accident
like this is a deep emotional loss," he said.
The fallen statue was discovered at the Manhattan museum's Velez
Blanco Patio around 9 p.m. Sunday, more than three hours after
closing time, by a security guard who heard a crash. Conservators
were immediately called in to survey the damage.
"The piece is enormously valuable. You could say priceless in that
it is a unique piece," de Montebello said. "But the monetary value
is irrelevant. Historically it is compromised."
Conservationists should be able to restore the statue so that only
those with trained eyes would be able to spot the damage, but the
work could take as long as two years, de Montebello said.
The statue, dated 1490-95, came to the museum in 1936 and is part of
its permanent collection, according to the museum's Web site.
The statue of Adam holding an apple was noted for the purity
of its marble and its smooth, elegant carving. A serpent and a
grapevine on a tree trunk alluded to the fall and redemption of man.
Do you believe in signs? Is
this simply a coincidence? Maybe...
How does a statue of very pure marble, that has been standing there for
over 150 years, just up and fall over one day? Look around folks -
someone is trying to let you in on something. Just listen!
