Did you see the same sign in New Zealand in the last few years? Because their damage was much worse. I dont understand why in the midst of destruction and death people keep making comments about the Philippines construction - as tho it never happens in first world countries .  Maybe google San Francisco earthquake

actually my comment was more about the irony of the sign on a building that collapsed.  it's interesting that much of the damage shown in the pictures is primarily related to facades rather than the main structures.  that actually speaks well for much of the construction.  except for the spanish.

of course, this building was in cebu, a good distance away from the main force of the epicenter, and so the force was substantially weaker (not because of magnitude but because of depth) than the are of christchurch that suffered so much damage from the second of 2 major earthquakes in a 6 month span.

to be fair others made similar comments- yours was just the latest one that I read !!  I accept that there is some truth in it, its just not the appropriate time to bring up such things imho 

 

 

and the Spanish construction - mostly churches- has actually lasted quite awhile - [ until now]

 

Similarly the comment that the good side is that local workers will have more work to do -   thats like saying a plane crash is good because  more work is created for all the medics etc

Collapsed Bohol churches had stood for over 300 years before quake

Officials of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) are distraught by the extent of damage to the centuries-old churches in Bohol in the aftermath of the 7.2 magnitude quake that struck the island on Tuesday, October 15.

The agency is calling on the public to stay away from the damaged churches to keep safe as well as to avoid further damage to the structures.
 
“Naiiyak nga ako ngayon,” said Atty. Trixie Angeles, NCCA Legal Consultant and Vice Chairman of the National Committee on Monuments and Sites. All airports and seaports are damaged by the earthquake, leaving heritage officials unable to go to Bohol.
 
“These are declared National Cultural Treasures which is the highest recognition a country can bestow on cultural properties.”

Further engineering assessment has yet to be done in order to know the extent of the damage, saidAngeles.
 
Among the damaged churches are the Church of San Pedro in Loboc and Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Baclayon, both being conserved by the National Museum with the funding of NCCA.
 
Maribojoc Church and Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Dauis were also reported to have suffered damage.

The Loboc Church is the second oldest church in Bohol, while the Baclayon Church is one of the best preserved Jesuit-built churches in the region, according to an article in Bohol.ph.
 
The Maribojoc Church was founded in 1768. Its construction started in 1798 and lasted 18 years.

Last major quake was in 1700
 
The Dauis church's style was influenced by both Byzantine and Romanesque architecture. On its ceiling were frescoes painted by church artist Ray Francia in 1916, the same article said.
 
The last major earthquake to hit the area was in 1700. Many churches were also destroyed during that time, said Angeles.

Previous conservation efforts
 
All conservation efforts were done to reverse inappropriate human intervention and vegetation.
 
Also part of the rubble are other cultural properties, including repablos, containers of figures of saints with elaborate carvings done in the Philippine Baroque Period (1600 to early 1900).
 
Any chance of restoration or revival after the damage has yet to be assessed. “It depends. Wala pang engineering assessment. We don't know if it's recoverable.”
 
The main concern at present is to prevent further injuries.

“Right now wala pa kaming assessment. All we know of the damages is based on the pictures lang. We can't say with finality the extent of that damage,” Angeles said.

Heritage Task Force to be deployed Thursday
 
A team of experts will inspect the damage of the heritage sites starting Thursday, October 17, according to the Official Statement of the Board of Commissioners of the NCCA, the contents of which were dictated by Angeles through a phone call with GMA News Online.

I am very interested in old buildings, but at the present time, I feel that it should be the last thing on peoples minds.

 

Saving lives and taking care of the injured plus rehousing those who are now homeless should take priority.

Yes, it is silly to pay for a hobby when the effort could be better spent on the living who are in need.

I never have understood these historical ( hysterical) societies when it comes to putting the past dead ahead of the present living.

you can not have pride in who you are unless you have pride in your roots !!

 

 

i am not religious and I am not a church goer, but I certainly appreciate the importance of churches that a persons family has worshipped their God in for the last 2 or 3 hundred years.   To a great many people their spiritual well being is just as important as their other basic needs

It would be interesting to know if any efforts had been made to preserve these historical structures. Had any money been spent on maintaining and strengthening them or just hot air expelled by the hand wringers.

I am a Christian and I am a church goer, and I think the way to honor God is to take care of the poor as per His instructions to us. God says in The Bible the futility of building structures to honor Him, when He doesn't need us to build Him a house to live in. I think it takes care of people's spiritual needs a lot better when they are in crisis to address their physical needs rather than show them by our actions that we think God would like us to do up an old building rather than help them.

 

Still, the buildings are nice, it's just a matter of other matters being urgent priorities just now.
