I thought the tower of babel was the myth that the bible uses to show how Yeshua hates
skyscrapers human insolence and as a result made people’s languages different.
If god hates
skyscrapers insolence and people trying to get high enough to see him, how come he didn’t strike us down when we ascended into heaven with our space rockets and our modern-day sky scrapers?
The same yesterday, today and forever, my foot.
Read the tower of babel story as it appears in the bible here or below.
3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”
5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
Note the use of “us” in verse 7. Many Christians use that verse to support the trinity. In context, many biblical scholars say that it refers to a god of the old testament who was talking to his wife Asherah. See this book for more details.
I don’t believe in god, but I believe in his wife. 🙂
