Babel yesterday and today.

This is first of many posts i will post in the coming future. 🙂

I believe that it is possible that our ancestors mis interpreted aliens as gods. I also believe that what is written in our holy books are sometimes mis-interpreted.  I have seen several examples that point to this. I wanted to share one thing that came to my mind recently. We all know the story of babel from bible. I always used to wonder, why did god want man to spread out ? Dont we all know that when we humans are united we will accomplish more ? Here is my “theory”.

Bible Verse : “And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.”

1) Shinar is believed to be modern mesopotamia. So now our archaeological evidence and the writings match. Mankind spread to different parts of the world from Mesopotamia.

Bible Verse : “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven;”

Note to self :  See if there are references to “heaven” before this.

2) What we have to understand is that by “heaven” they basically mean sky. I believe they might have seen aliens descending from the sky and they wanted to build a building that would take them to the sky, where the “gods” lived.

Bible Verse : “And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower,”

“Go to, let us go down,”

3)Why does bible and other book keep stressing the word “came down” or descended . Reasonable explanation is descent of a spaceship.

Bible Verse : “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. ”

4)The “lord” seems to think that because all mankind is united they can do what ever they imagined to do. And or some reason he dosent like it. I really cant understand why a loving god will try to split up his own people. Only explanation that makes sense to me is that another species does not want us to grow to an extent that we will challenge them.

Bible Verse : “Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”

5)And he confuses people and makes the scatter all over the world. Which is inline with what modern archaeologists believe. Man migrated out of the fertile crescent.

Here is the main part, i did not start off this thing from babel.   I was wondering why people were constructing tall structures which had to do with gods and reaching the sky. From pyramids in egypt to ones in south america to the temples we have in india. Why do people from different places want to do the same things. My theory is that our ancestors knew of the babel and went to different parts of world, and they tried to build their own version of babel over and over again.

Another interesting thing that i have to reason out is, how did the “gods” or aliens manage to create so many different languages ? If it was all part of an intelligent design, i would want to know how different languages would serve any purpose but to slow down our advancement. Will the aliens destroy us like previous generations cos of our rapid growth. Interesting this is that this rapid growth coincides with 2 languages (english , mandrin) being spoken by more than half of world’s population.

This is for people who want to know how one language will improve tech growth of a species.

By having one language people from different places can share ideas and will be able to learn from ideas left by people from other places. There by increasing the number of inventions/advancements he can make. And cos of rapid growth of information sharing these times, an average person now has more knowledge than the person few hundred years ago. Lot of unanswered questions 🙂
