Wow

This is cool. Click here, go visit the Sistine Chapel. Zoom in and out, rotate, you might want to take a Gravol first. Seriously. Go slow. But it is really, really neat.

Thanks, Sarah.

Yeah, if you get carsick, don't click. Sorry Blue Roz.

Blue Roz. Snicker.

I've seen it for real and it is remarkable in intensity, depth and waste of money. I couldn't help but wonder how much better it would be for the church's followers if the wealth poured into these buildings was liberated and used for education, health, village improvement projects etc. Such a waste.

I was fortunate enough to travel to Italy for my honeymoon last year and see this in person. It's kept much darker than it appears in the link as the Vatican tries to avoid sun damage. Full of people, all are asked to be very quiet although many aren't and you hear the guards constantly shushing people. I agree with Buzzwhack though, lots of gold in the Vatican that could be used to help others. Isn't that what the church is supposed to be doing?

As we all know, there are many things churches/religions are 'supposed' to do for their communities.

Let's not go down that dark path...

That is very cool and you can probably see some of the things much better here than you could in person. Obviously in real life it would be incredible though. Some day I may get there....

I am grateful that the church was a patron of the arts...
