You think it was a brick tower or something like that. It wasnt. It was a psychic matrix to attempt to transcend to a neighboring level

you cant just say crazy stuff without links or elaborate explanations bana
Take it easy on hard drugs.
Those guy’s objective was to go where the Gods are. The sell out line is where the Gods Themselves say, " …and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and nothing that they propose to do will be impossible for them."
Our physical universe seems to account for only 4% of existence. 96% seems to be made of stuff we cannot see or detect or comprehend. “Heaven” could be right “here”, but on a plane we cannot transcend to.
How many years are you in class one?
Even if it was an actual tower, it is still folly, because it would have been born of a mistaken belief that God could be reached that way, by building up to his imagined palace in the sky–instead of reaching him through the prophets. God is spirit, He cannot be reached by looking around to see him. Building a tower to reach him is in fact idolatry–worshipping God through the physical, instead of the spiritual (faith).
They would have built it all their lives, and the lives of all their unborn descendants, and they’d have achieved nothing. It was a plan conceived in confusion-babel. Therefore, it could not stand. I imagine that it’s the frustration created by that lack of vision that caused the miscommunication, and the resultant fall.
So ni ukweli the forbidden fruit was just nyaus at play?
I doubt the thing people were doing was physical. It was something so serious that the Gods were bothered enough to disrupt
I don’t know either, but I usually interpret it this way:
It could have been both a tower (like the “high places” that the canaanites built as alters to their gods, or like the statue King Darius built on the plain for all to bow down to), and it could also have been symbolic–elevating themselves to the level of “gods” thus insulting their Creator. Remember, Nebuchadnezzer was also made to eat grass like an ox for elevating himself, by simply looking at the magnificence of the city and palace he had built, then, rather than thank God for the achievement, his heart swelled with pride and wonder at what he had built (elevating himself, just like building a tower). So God drove him mad for a season, so that he could be lowered to the status of an animal and understand that without God (the divine spirit that enabled him to reason as a human being) he was nothing, and he could build nothing. I think the lesson we can learn is that without God’s will, (which encompasses the intellect–the power to evaluate, critique, design, and reason) we are no better than animals.
[COLOR=rgb(40, 50, 78)]I don’t know, there’s something about that tower and the Egyptian pyramid that nags me.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”
Remember God has instructed Noah and his descendants to multiply and replenish the earth.
It was never a physical tower. It must have been a platform where man must have been seeking knowledge on how to elevate himself to be at the same level with the gods. And this has a striking similarity with man eating the forbidden fruit in Eden. But God struck him down to the level he should be. Maybe the tower was just a mere altar or residence.
what if the Bible is just a collection of African History?
what if the tower was the Africans uniting to build a stronger and greater African Continent and the whites realized they were a threat and decided to destroy or put them down. (using their tribes to make them distrust each other)
:D:D:D:D. Religionists will be here with all manner of justifications. That book only describes the Jewish way of life.
Ancient people had had a discovery of something we do not know; that is the reason they were never interested in the path of this technology we have taken. When you look at ancient ruins such as pyramids and the size of thise building blocks it indicates they had no problem in lifting and transporting 10k ton stone block. This explains why they never bothered to invent trucks, trains and cranes. They were operating in a different capacity, they knew something we missed. Could we in future will discover this and all our technology advancement become useless.
I saw a documentary that had proof that the founder off that city was actually Enoch, the man who transpired
The christians on this thread show why no one should take the bible seriously. They don’t take it seriously themselves. Inconvenient passages can always be explained away as metaphors. The funny thing is that they can’t tell you which method they use to determine which passages are literal and which ones are metaphors.
