More than 100 million people chose to name The Great Wall of China, Rome's Colosseum and India's Taj Mahal among the seven new wonders of the world.
But are the wonders of our modern World really made of stones?
It is understandable that the ancient Greek observers who did the first Wonder’s list in the few centuries BC named buildings like The Great Pyramids of Giza as one of them. But twenty centuries later, the collective human genius has produced much more than these buildings but the public is more trained to admire the beauties of the past than the wonders of today.
Rael has asked Raelians to organize a new survey asking people to vote about the current 7 wonders of the world which should be about science and technology.
“The real 7 wonders of today's world are not at all old stones and ruins from disappeared civilizations... People need to wake up, we are in 2007 !
The real wonders of the world should be selected for example amongst things like the Space Station, the Petronas Tower, the residential artificial islands of Dubai, the Nile river or Three Gorges dam providing electricity to million of peoples, particle accelerators, etc...” declared Rael after reading the results of the vote.
