1 in 131 billion: the movie
Set to another Ennio Morricone masterpiece.
Architect Paul Murdoch split his giant Crescent of Embrace memorial to Flight 93 into two separate arcs at the top, in effect creating two separate crescents:
Detail view shows the pair of thousand foot long, fifty foot tall, Entry Portal walls. Both walls roughly follow the line of the circle that is symbolically broken by the flight path (seen coming down from the NNE).
The crescent defined by the end of the inner Entry Portal Wall points 1.8° north of Mecca, ± a tenth of a degree. The crescent defined by the end of the outer Entry Portal Wall points exactly at Mecca (± 0.1°):
The hidden exact Mecca orientation of the giant crescent is only one of the ways that Murdoch proves he pointed the crescent towards Mecca on purpose (making it a mihrab, the Mecca direction indicator around which every mosque is built). He also proves intent by exactly repeating both of the Mecca orientations of his giant central crescent in the crescents of trees that surround the Tower of Voices part of the memorial.
That two different crescent structures would by chance turn out to have this exact same multi-Mecca oriented geometry is 1 in 131 billion. Just run the numbers (with some help from Mr. Morricone):
The repeated multi-Mecca-oriented geometry is just one of the many repeated Islamic and terrorist memorializing features in Murdoch's design, yet by itself it is plenty sufficient to secure Murdoch's goal of proving intent. For comparison, the latest DNA fingerprinting technique, admissible in courts of law for finding people guilty of murder, has a chance of misidentification of "one in several billion."
If Murdoch's crescent design gets built, history will not be able to deny his achievement: that he succeeded in planting a terrorist memorial mosque on the Flight 93 crash site, claiming that sacred ground for the murder-cult Islam of Osama bin Laden, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Hamas and Europe. Who would want to do such a thing? A substantial portion of Saudi Arabians, Pakistanis, Iranians, Palestinians and Europeans, for starters.
