Babylon Rising, Chapter 25
Were you wondering what Talon was doing in his guise of window washer at the U.N.?
WERE YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT???
Well, the wait is over:
…painted on half the windows from floor five up to floor twelve of the United Nations Secretariat Building, in a bright red that took on an otherworldy glow in the night lighting, all the world was now reading:
J 3 16
Here’s a picture of the Secretariat Building at night, to help you get a mental picture:
Okay, I’m torn. On one hand, it’s not a horrible plan, and rather well-calculated to achieve the desired result (easy to pin it on evangelicals). On the other hand…HOW IN THE HELL DID NO ONE NOTICE THIS UNTIL SIX P.M.???
We are told this is special paint that “goes on clear and takes on color only when really bright light zaps it, some kind of glow-in-the-light chemical.”
Um, okay, but then why does it not show up in sunlight? And why didn’t anyone working in the building notice paint, even “goes on clear” paint, when it’s being applied in a very specific pattern by a window washer on seven different floors?
Still, not a bad scheme. Man, so torn.
Anyway, the FBI and New York police and U.N. security are all trying to figure it out, and of course it takes them about five seconds to crack open a Bible to John 3:16 and then, as you would expect, they call Michael Murphy.
Because the very first person you’re going to want to call regarding vandalism at the United Nations is an archeology professor in North Carolina.
