They are completely different books that spawned quite different religions...so, yes, it does.
are you referring to the Babylonian ziggurats? this prophecy refers to those who were once poor sheperds and bedouins.. Who would be COMPETING to build tall buildings. Those people are today the arab elite, who through oil money build towers for the sake of showing off.

As a side - is it not somewhere in one of the Middle Eastern and muslim countries where those really old 'skyscrapers' exisit? v- a city of really tall for their time buildings.
the cellphone prophecy isnt vague. He gave the example of a man keeping a cellphone in his front pocket who gets to know whats going on at home. His point was that communication tech would have been so developed that a man could know what was going on at a given place without actually being there. And the skyscraper prophecy was written at a time when Mohammad was alive.

I see the intelligence in what you are saying about where we keep our cell phones but again it seems so very vague and in one's keenness to keep faith is it not possible that clutching at straws on interpretation is also a possibility? I do go back to the point that what Mohammad said was not written down at the time it was said.
