The World is sinking

The world, which was constructed in Dubai as an archipelago of islands shaped like the countries of our planet, is sinking due to many mistakes made during its 'birth'. The sands are eroding and the channels between them are slitting up, said Richard Wilmot-Smith who is a British lawyer representing Penguin Marine, the company that has bought the rights to transport travellers to the World islands. The company is trying to forfeit the contract, stating that there is no work for them, especially since the global credit crunch.

This was a project to emphasise the modernity and the constructive miracles which have been built in Dubai the past two decades. The other 'wonder' is the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. The ironic factor is that, except for two islands, all the other parts of the world are uninhabited.
But there is a debate on this matter, since the company that constructed these islands, Nakheel, stated that the islands are not sinking, "our periodical monitoring survey over the past three years didn't observe any substantial erosion that requires sand nourishment", a statement said.
This probably emphasises how man finds it hard, if not impossible, to create land, which according to Christianity came into being after God spoke... Maybe this will sophisticate man to do better next time or make him understand his limits..!
