Proof Of The Existence Of Tower Of Babel Found On Ancient Stone Tablet
Researchers believe that they have found ‘proof’ that the tower of babel existed after the discovery of a stone tablet. “Biblical scholars have long debated whether the Tower of Babel really existed. Now, a remarkable stone tablet never before shown on film appears to settle that question,” the Smithsonian magazine says.
The tablet, which dates to about 600 B.C., owned by Norwegian businessman Martin Schøyen. It depicts the clearest image ever found of the Great Ziggurat of Babylon, according to Andrew George, professor of Babylonian history at the University of London.
Genesis 11:4 reads, “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.”
“But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other. So the Lord scattered them from there over all the Earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel — because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole Earth.”
