Compelling new evidence may prove the Tower of Babel really existed
A stone tablet is inscribed with an illustration of the great ziggurat, plus illuminating inscriptions.
The account of the Tower of Babel in the Old Testament tells a tale of the ultimate chutzpah: a people decided to build a tower that could reach heaven:
“Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky,and so make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered all over the earth.” (Genesis 11:4)
Not pleased, the Bible tells us, the Lord put a stop to this presumptuousness, and made them speak in different languages so they couldn’t understand each other, thus “scattering them over all the earth.”
Now compelling evidence has emerged that the Tower of Babel actually existed, and that the story is more than just a symbolic tale of man’s hubris.
A stone tablet from the private collection of a Norwegian businessman Martin Schøyen includes the clearest image ever found of the Great Ziggurat of Babylon, according to Andrew George, Professor of Babylonian history at the University of London.
The tablet, which has been captured on film for the first time by Smithsonian Magazine, shows an illustration of a pyramid-like structure, with a depiction of King Nebuchadnezzar II, who ruled Babylon from 605-562 BC, standing next to it.
First built around the time of Hammurabi (1792-1750 BC), the ziggurat in Babylon was in a serious state of disrepair by the time Alexander I the Great came along, and was taken down in 331 BC.
With no evidence to tell us what it actually looked like, until now we have only had, in the words of the Schøyen Collection’s catalog, “a long series of fanciful paintings to rely on.”
This tablet, for the first time, gives us a contemporary illustration of the tower; along with an inscription giving us an account of Nebuchadnezzar II’s building plans and the restoration process....
Germany's loss of World War II allowed for the return to Babel. The "multi-culture" society we live in is an attempt to return to Babel to "thumb our nose" at God as the ancients did.
Sounds crazy, right?
Consider the that European Union Parliament building is modeled after the Tower of Babel! Also consider their slogan
The above is an actual poster promoting the European Union!
I think as a Catholic, it is not necessary to know all the details of such things...
BUT, if a Catholic is going to purport to be informing Catholics of world events and the situation in the world and they completely ignore the reality of this return to Babel, of the incredible significance of WWII on the world we live in, and the fact that, like it or not, the United States is completely controlled by Israel - such a person is a deceiver and should be avoided!
