Babylon a city of lost languages....or confusion of languages.
The Greek form Babylon (Βαβυλών) is an adaptation of Akkadian Babili. The Babylonian name as it stood in the 1st millennium BC had been
changed from an earlier Babilli in early 2nd millennium BC, meaning "Gate of God" or "Gateway of the God" (bāb-ili) by popular etymology. The
earlier name Babilla appears to be an adaptation of a non-Semitic source of unknown origin or meaning.  In the Hebrew Bible, the name appears as
בָּבֶל (Babel; Tiberian בָּבֶל Bāvel; Syriac ܒܒܠ Bāwēl), interpreted in the Book of Genesis (11:9) to mean "confusion" (viz. of
languages), from the verb בלבל bilbél, "to confuse". History
The narrative of the city of Babel is recorded in Genesis 11:1-9. Everyone on earth spoke the same language. As people migrated toward the east,
they settled in the land of Shinar. People there sought to make bricks and build a city and a tower with its top in the sky, to make a name for
themselves, so that they not be scattered over the world. God came down to look at the city and tower, and remarked that as one people with one
language, nothing that they sought would be out of their reach. God went down and confounded their speech, so that they could not understand each
other, and scattered them over the face of the earth, and they stopped building the city. Thus the city was called Babel. The phrase "Tower of
Babel" does not actually appear in the Bible; it is always, "the city and its tower" (אֶת-הָעִיר וְאֶת-הַמִּגְדָּל) or
just "the city" (הָעִיר). According to the biblical etymology, the city received the name "Babel" from the Hebrew word balal, meaning to
jumble. (The Hebrew verb לבלבל (Lebalbel) means "to confuse".
Genisis 11;8 ... And so the Lord scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build the city.
says here that they ceased building the city.
so yes, they are still building the tower.
my interpretation of this 'tower' may be broader than yours, and i am still researching into that.
good op, but it looks like everybody is more intrested in the latest attack, which, i guess , would be more power for this tower.
