|The Tower of Babel story (Genesis 11) is one of the dumbest
stories in the bible. After the great flood, humans had
developed one language and were intent on building a tower that
would reach the heavens. God became angry and scattered the
tower developers all over the planet and changed their language
so that they could not communicate effectively.
Apparently, it was made from bricks and tar. I am not a structural engineer, but I suspect that it would be awfully difficult to build more than four to five story buildings from bricks only.
The story explains to morons how so many languages came to be on this planet. It's amazing that the vast majority of idiots buy into a story like this.
It's another story of a petty vindictive mean, malicious, malevolent, and genocidal maniac god who does not want his minions to thrive and grow, a petty god who wants to retard mankind.
Any building in New York city over 10 stories is taller than anything they could have built back then.
Now, we have the International Space Station (ISS) in orbit at 230 miles and we still do not see Heaven. We have been to the moon, Mars and other planets and still don't see Heaven. We do observe hellish conditions in space.
The only thing we get from this story are a bunch of BABELing religious idiots.
At least, I now truly understand the name babelfish in Doug Adams book, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.
A vengeful angry god makes it difficult for his various ant colonies to understand each other, and this is why the revelations of the New Testament was not spread.
God just had to create new languages to keep people from uniting against him.
Imagine this allegedly omnipotent snowflake (candy) ass creature that is terrified of his little creations.
We have a little wussy god who is terrified of his ant colony.
Now in 2018, we have applications on our phones that do instant translations of documents and human speech. In essence, we are once again thumbing our noses at our silly little god and saying Fuck you! God
We are on the verge of building half-mile tall buildings.
We do not see your stinking god coming down from his invisible perch.
