Evidence of the Actual Tower of Babel

It would seem that about every month archaeologists uncover some evidence that proves what the Bible has been saying all along.

Today we read an article about the Tower of Babel.

Genesis 11:4
“And they said: ‘Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’”

An ancient tablet believed to depict the Biblical Tower of Babel has been deciphered 100 years after its discovery and may represent the first-ever image of the real Tower when it stood in Babylon during Biblical times.

The amazing tale of the tablet is told in a series produced by the Smithsonian. For scholars, the tablet offers proof that the Tower of Babel wasn’t just a work of fiction, the series argues, but “an actual building from antiquity.”

The sixth-century BCE tablet, found a century ago but, as part of a private collection, never studied or exhibited until now, depicts a Babylonian tower known as a ziggurat. After deciphering the tablet, Dr. Andrew George, an expert on ancient Babylon, became convinced it shows the true source of the famed Biblical story.

The amazing tale of the tablet is told in a series produced by the Smithsonian. For scholars, the tablet offers proof that the Tower of Babel wasn’t just a work of fiction, the series argues, but “an actual building from antiquity.”

In the first installment of the series, Dr. George, a professor of Babylonian at the University of London, examines the tablet, showing an image of the ziggurat, a massive stepped structure, and a figure holding a staff. The professor translates the inscription, which identifies the structure as the “Tower of Temple of Babylon”.

The inscription confirms the building was a Mesopotamian-style tower and illustrates the seven tiers of the ancient megastructure. Significantly, it also identifies the man behind it, depicted next to the tower – Mesopotamia’s most famous ruler, King Nebuchadnezzar II. Dr. George’s translation of the tablet reveals a detailed account of the tower’s construction by the Babylonian king.

“The myth about the multitude of tongues comes from the context described in the stele about the multitude of peoples enlisted in the construction of the tower,” Professor George told Breaking Israel News in an interview. “There were many languages spoken on the construction site. From that it may be that the Bible got the idea of the confusion of tongues.”

“As an Assyriologist, I don’t deal in the Bible, and I am not a religious person, but in this case, I can say there is an actual building which does seem to be the inspiration for the Biblical narrative,” Dr. George acknowledged to Breaking Israel News.

More and more, archaeologists are finding proof that Biblical stories relate to historical events. Dr. George sees no contradiction between science and the Bible. The professor described how this schism between science and religion is gradually being reconciled in his field.

“After Darwin cast a doubt on the story of a six-day creation, people began to ask what else in the Bible might not be true,” Dr. George said. “In the 19th century there was a discovery that the Assyrian kings described in the Bible were real and corroborated by archaeological evidence, making us ask now, how much more in the Bible is true?”

Awesome!!  How many people believe the Bible is just a bunch of old myths?...but now even the secularists are having to admit that Solomon DID have a Temple on the Temple Mount, and Noah DID build a huge boat to survive a global flood, and ancient men actually DID attempt to build a huge tower to reach up into the heavens where maybe they hoped to access WHERE the angels dwell?

Here is another interesting point to consider in this story of Babel....

After the flood, all the people on earth (starting with Noah and 7 others) had a common language and they would have started populating the area.  But folks have always been stumped by HOW people got spread across the face of the earth?  How did they get to Australia?  How did they get to North America to become our Native American Indians?

And guess what?  The Bible actually answers that too!!  And he says it TWICE just in case you weren't paying attention the first time!!

Genesis 11
8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 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.

According to God's own word, HE physically scattered people all over the world!  He dropped some in North America, some in Australia, some in China!!

This would also explain WHY anthropologists go anywhere in the world and ask the people there what their history is and over 200 stories start with the story of a huge flood!...because THERE WAS A HUGE FLOOD!!
