We appear to have started the new year and decade with aÂ historicallyÂ significant and symbolic event , representing the completion of a tall feat.
The official grand opening of the Burj Dubai, took place today, which is the first official business day of 2010 in the city of Dubai, Â a world renoun resort destination located in the United Arab Emerites.
It (Burj Dubai) is currently the tallest building on Planet Earth, stretching approximatelyÂ one half mile into the sky.
As a matter of historical record, an interestingly similar occurance is recorded in The Book Of Genisis.
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.Â 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.Â 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.Â 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.Â 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children built.Â 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.Â 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.Â 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.Â 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
What does it all mean?
You’ll have to make up your own mind, as I am simply doing my duty by reporting the news.
As a side note, consider theÂ coincidentalÂ factÂ Â that
The United Arab Emirates is also located in the southern portion of the ArabianÂ PeninsulaÂ which is where Yemen, currently in the news regarding the fight against terrorism and radical Islamic extremists is located.
