Response to AtheistCrusader (Reply #10)

16. Odd thing to say. Did I give you the impression that I believe the tower's invulnerable? I mean...

very little in this universe, no matter how big or strongly constructed is proof against destruction (theoretically). Planets, stars, galaxies. This, I think, is a given and need not be said.

However, if you feel I was unclear, I'll reiterate with more precision: I don't believe this tower is magically invulnerable to any and all possibility of destruction, and what I said was not intended to be taken that way. My point was that if, heaven forfend, this tower gets hit by a plane or a bomb goes off inside or whatever, there are measures in place get people out of it and rescue crews in, rather than leaving them trapped. Thus, not only will it withstand more damage, but it is also constructed to help people escape if damage or destruction occurs.

And THAT is the message that this building has on its inside which, IMHO, is far more important than the message on its outside could ever be.

Does that clear things up?
