Quantcast

Tower of Babel Myth is NOT the origins of the languages of the planet.

"A carving of the Tower of Babel has been found on a stone tablet dating back over 2,500 years.

It comes from the newly published book Cuneiform Royal Inscriptions And Related Texts In The Schøyen Collection.

The collection is owned by Norwegian businessman Martin Schøyen, who has amassed over 13,000 ancient manuscripts and tablets


Professor Andrew George writes that this drawing is one of ‘the stars in the firmament of the book’.

The depiction of Nebuchadnezzar is one of only four in the world.

Professor George says: ‘The others are
carved on cliff-faces in Lebanon at Wadi Brisa (which has two reliefs)
and at Shir es-Sanam."
‘All
these outdoor monuments are in very poor condition and their depictions
of the king are much less impressive than that on the stele [stone
tablet].’

Elsewhere in the book is an interesting translation of a 3,000-year-old copy of the law code of Mesopotamian king Ur-Nammu.

Within this scholars discovered an ‘eye for an eye’ rule, predating Hammurabi’s famous 1780BC code by hundreds of years.

However, Ur-Nammu’s version was less cruel and stated that blinding someone should result in a fine, not the losing of an eye.

Bar
tabs were also enshrined in law. If, for example, you told a ‘female
tavern-keeper’ to put a beer on a tab in the summer, she could order you
to pay a tax in the winter – though it doesn’t specify how much.






Westminster Theological Journal states:


"When we employ these five facts to date the building of the tower of Babel, we discover from archaeological data that the event occurs too late in history to be
the origin of all languages on earth."

This is yet proof that the bible is full of parables and myths that have no basis in fact.

    Bable actually is fable, a story using animal charactures. The fable of course is astrology, aries the ram etcetera. Before the written word was the tarot cards wherein you find all the symbols of astrology hidden in the face cards, like the symbol of a cherub etched in a bottom etc.

    That seem to be where most of the bible comes from

    My favorite story is the one about elidja and elisha, how they came here in a chariot of fire, but only one left in said chariot of fire. Is this why they pray to their father 'which art in heaven?'

    There were differences in language long before the story of the tower of babel and long before the time that creationists claim the universe began at. Anyone who believes the tower of babel story is either ignorant or lying.

    Just because it is carved in rock doesn't make it true.

    Something in the Bible isn't literally true?

    And the bear did WHAT in the woods? No!

    i find it funny when people say "well *insert place on earth here* is talked about in the bible so the bible must be true". OK, by that logic spider man exists because we have documented (comic) evidence that he lives in new york. new york exists so spider man must be real.

    I guess you have no education and have no ambition to do any research on your own. There is abundant evidence that there were numerous languages centuries befor the tower of Babel. Anyone with a brain can figure that out for themselves.

    That'd be a totally lousy "guess" on your part.

    The fact that you are christian and are not wiling to see the facts of the language issue is not a guess.

    Aristotle Onassis started a shipping business when the "facts" (alleged expert opinions) strongly suggested he shouldn't. What many consider to be "facts" are nothing more than allegedly well-informed folk spouting their perspective. There is the possibility that folk can study lies/deceit as "fact". I'll stick with Yahweh-God.

    Stick with fantasy, superstitions and fairy tales. Reality is very hard for some people to deal with on a daily basis.

    Do you actually know the name of god or have you ever looked it up?

    Yahweh, Elohim, El-Shaddai, Jehovah (English slurring of the first), Yeshua.
    Being fully aware that we are not in any kind of agreement, I surmise that this dialog may be a waste for both of us. I do pray that your Creator gets your attention before you breathe your last. No reply needed.

    You are not even remotely close. Apparently you have never studied Hebrew or much of the bible either.


    What is God's "Real" Name?
    There's a lot of controversy about God's Real Name and what it means. Over the years this is one of the top questions emailed:
    "How do you really know God's Name means "I Will Be" instead of "I Am"?
    The simple answer is: This is a fact of the Hebrew language.

    You need a LOT of education.

    I trust The Holy Spirit to handle that. It appears you don't.
  • bricklyn Gregaj7 2012/08/10 03:53:45

    The holy spirit certainly has not imparted you with much knowledge so far. That is why the church has always denied knowledge from its very inception.

    As well as other religions. Is there a specific reason you're singling out Christianity???
