Well, I'm sure there are many faceted proofs that for the most part, the Bible is BS. But this Element in the Bible takes the Cake by far

"Tower of Babel" I mean, Come on. All peoples of the Earth are living in the same location? and happen to build a Tower to the heavens and pisses God off, so he changes everyone nationality and language


Hell he doesn't even change their location...They all seem to find their way...Its Amazing

It takes 3000 plus years and google translate and we're back where we started


Wonder how God will feel if we start building that Tower again?

In all fairness, the original story probably was written by those who did not believe that humans existed beyond discovered perimeters. Much less knew that the world extended beyond them.

But most likely this story was written in hindsight to explain the divergence of people that were physically different and whose language was different from their own.

I think the funniest part is that I guess we are to believe that none of them were friends so when they were made to speak a different language they just gave up on each other and moved to a different land, oh and some became chinese and looked different, some became black and looked different, some became white and looked different, some became indian and looked different, etc etc etc....

What a stupid story.

God MUST have been racist....you know the old comment....we all looked the same....so he did something about it.

Oh come on theres worse then that...

How about a huge ship built by a senior citizen and his family... all the animals came by twos to join the boat ride...

World wide flood which lasted 40 days and nights, or 120 depending on which part you read... animals just chilled on the boat... they didn't need to eat apparently... dinosaurs managed to get on there as well with some Christians...

in the end, the flood waters reside... and the animals somehow manage to make it from that docking point all over the world...

yeah... sure...

So we were unified working towards great human achievements and then god divided us from each other.. and now we hate each other.

so is god saying he would rather us kill each other/suicide rather then have us closer to heaven?

soo what im seeing from that tower your talking about is that god wants us to forget about him and just stop trying to get to him, i thought christens are supposed to get close to god so im confused. why all the mixed signals. i mean unless im missing a lot (which i sure i am but i dont really care that much(so much that i didnt even watch the video i posted))




or was there a real reason? like bad motives or something? or were they like i want to hug god! then he makes them retarded

Considering the threads on ATS today ...



This is oddly appropriate. It even references religion.

I present Star Wars translated to Chinese and then back to English. Thank Google Translate indeed. We can see how the Tower of Babel might have been quite effective.


Also: STRONG LANGUAGE in print. You have been warned.

Haven't you people ever heard of metaphor?

How about allegory?

Parable? Surely you've heard that one.

Or are you just giving a straw man the business? You construct an argument against a false representation of what you want others to think all Bible-believers are--literalists.

Senior is an understatement...wasn't he said to be 600 years old or something when the flood happened? Then he had to live through the Tower of Babel too.....he was 940 at that point. That is 1/6th the age of the Earth according to young earthers....I guess god decided to drop our life expectancy after the flood (all except for Noah....he lived another 350 years)....how cruel is that? First he kills us all off, then he drops our life expectancy then he makes us all not understand each other....geez....talk about screwing up your creation right? No wonder we all have issues.

Oh ya the whole story is nonsense...

I just can't believe some people actually still believe it happened...

then again, there are people that think the world is flat still...

IF its in the book, it must be true... starting to think that mentality is from slight brain damage

But creation is real right?

So, which stories are real and which are metaphor again? Surely the Bible makes it clear right?

I love it when christians say one story is metaphor but another is real....all in the same book....those tricky bible writers...always keeping people guessing.

You know it isn't one "book", right? That it's an anthology of historical prose and poetry (among other styles) written at various times by various authors over the span of hundreds and hundreds of years?

9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

What's the difference between exegesis and eisegesis?


Exegesis and eisegesis are two conflicting approaches in Bible study. Exegesis is the exposition or explanation of a text based on a careful, objective analysis. The word exegesis literally means “to lead out of.” That means that the interpreter is led to his conclusions by following the text.

The opposite approach to Scripture is eisegesis, which is the interpretation of a passage based on a subjective, non-analytical reading. The word eisegesis literally means “to lead into,” which means the interpreter injects his own ideas into the text, making it mean whatever he wants.

Obviously, only exegesis does justice to the text. Eisegesis is a mishandling of the text and often leads to a misinterpretation. Exegesis is concerned with discovering the true meaning of the text, respecting its grammar, syntax, and setting. Eisegesis is concerned only with making a point, even at the expense of the meaning of words.
