Genesis 11: The Tower of Babel

Earnest Examination

This series is presented as an honest, sincere look into the study of the Bible with my own personal theories, opinions, comments and that of others’ insights and research into what the verses could mean. I cannot claim one way or another that everything that I am stating is fact and the true meaning of what is meant in these verses.

To lay it out in a way that I can manage, I have highlighted the texts of verses that I either don’t understand or have a comment or question about in yellow. And the comments I’ve left beneath it will be of a smaller font and using brown text.

I would love it if you’d join me in this journey and if you have any insights and/or knowledge of these chapters/verses etc., please feel free to share with me and the other readers. Any chance to get a clearer understanding of the Bible and Jesus Christ would be welcomed with open arms.

I have decided to ultimately use the NKJV version instead of the NIV (the translations from Genesis 1-10 that I used were all from NIV. Posts Genesis 11 and beyond will use NKJV).

Version used is from biblestudytools.com (NKJV) Genesis 11

1 Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.
2 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.

From these couple of verses, it makes it seem like the whole world is gathered in this one place. Did all of Noah’s descendants stay together and not branch out? Were there perhaps descendants that decided to travel outwards away from their extended family? Or did they truly all stick together this whole time?

I also want to bring up the strong parallels to the biblical story of the flood and the Tower of Babel account, to that of the Sumerian history. While doing research into the biblical flood and the history of mankind, including the Tower of Babel, the mention of the Sumerians came up several times. There can honestly be no doubt that there is something to this “myth” when it ties so closely to the Christianity beliefs. Some scholars believe that Christianity is actually a mesh of different religions, myths, pagan practices, etc. all mixed into one to appease the majority of people. Possibly as a result of the Roman Catholics/Constantine’s directive. Theoretically, perhaps because Jesus Christ was such a huge influence to people, the Romans felt as if they were in a losing battle to maintain their own tradition, thus adopted Christianity but still upheld their own rites and rituals.

I bring this up because I feel as if to really get a good understanding of the Bible, it’s necessary to address other sources that may lend credence and more information than what we are told. There are several “books” that have not been canonized, so may have been intentionally left out of the Bible; and in order to find out why, it’s prudent to study them as well.
3 Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.
4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”
And here we see “man’s” efforts to be like God and claim a place for themselves in the Heavens. If you’ve read my post on the theory of a dome/firmament, the efforts to go into the heavens, I believe, is now another way to say “into outer space” – as NASA and their partners are trying to conduct.

It is interesting to me that while the ancient civilizations had a direct line with God, there are still those who would defy Him. Why? Apparently they already know of His power and magnitude, yet there is still that arrogance and hubris to think that they can be like Him. (Could it be because the ancestors really did fall from Heaven (fallen angels) and now they want to reclaim their place in the sky? And these descendants (nephilim?, and/or prideful human beings) are hell heaven-bent on this mission to restore what they believe is their birth-right?)
5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
But then we see this verse, which states “sons of men”… so does this mean that these people were 100% of human origin? Or could they have been coerced by a nephilim (namely, Nimrod/Gilgamesh) into building this tower to reach the heavens? And as many scholars have theorized, the tower may been a ziggurat that was indeed built in Shinar/Babylon. – Understanding Genesis 11: The Tower of Babel…and yet One More Genealogy
6 And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
How accurate is this verse? Is it implying that human beings are capable of infiltrating to the heavens? And everything else their imagination can create? Or is this God merely stating it as a metaphor to meaning that human beings will construct items of various purposes that will have disastrous effects? If God is all-powerful and the creator of all, then the supposed point that humans can accomplish anything they set their mind to doesn’t make sense. If, however, it is more of a warning as to the state of the human condition, such as this deduction is proposing:

“A powerfully united humanity, inclined to do evil, could accomplish great wickedness. No matter how perverse, outrageous, or ridiculous something might seem, mankind can and will attempt it, given the opportunity. The following verse reveals that God has no plans to give humanity that kind of opening.”What does Genesis 11:6 mean?

then we can see where the danger lies to humanity itself. It is no secret that there are indeed some people who do seem to have wickedness in their heart all the time, and these are the very people that try and dictate control over the population. We can see it in many organizations, industries, businesses, etc. In today’s world, we can see that the vaccines are a heavily pushed, propagandized item onto the whole world. Is this a systematic way of trying to dominate and keep the population under control and at subservience? This is just a hypothetical suggestion, but seeing everything going on in the world, thoughts like these should be on everyone’s mind, instead of believing that multi-billionaire dollar companies have our best interest at heart.

With that being said, I have a hard time believing that “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”Genesis 6:5

 Perhaps during that time it was more true than I’d like to think it is. And currently, I’m sure this verse does apply to some parts of the population. However, while I cannot attest to anybody else’s feelings or what goes on in their heart or thoughts, I can speak for myself. I can speak knowing that God knows what’s inside my heart, and I have no fear of Him knowing. While I am not perfect, and not trying to speak out of haughtiness or boasting, I would like to offer up that the intentions of my heart are NOT only evil continually. While it may indeed be true for some, I know that it cannot be all of us, since my heart is looking to Love and Forgiveness, God and Jesus Christ. And I have faith that other people are on the same path.

7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
Again, and throughout various verses of scripture, we can see that God addresses others, whether they are his assembly of angels or other heavenly hosts. And “Us”, at least in this translation of the Bible, is capitalized. Which means that they are most likely of divine origin.

Here we see God’s plan to deter humanity’s mission at that time to reach the Heavens. By way of confusing their language. It’s very interesting that there was a specific plan in place to deliberately separate/segregate people in order to put their wicked plan to a halt. It begs the question, if God was able to do that to all the peoples, then what has been done since then to uproot more wicked plans that immoral groups have concocted? Are there more hidden things going on behind the scenes that have helped the lighter side of humanity, but yet we just don’t see it or understand it?
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.
While this certainly seemed to have benefited Heaven and its hosts, it generated animosity and hostility to the people of Earth towards one another. Since no one could understand a different nation and each one built upon their own customs and ‘cult’ure, it most certainly upset the whole humanity dynamic. While they may have worked together at one point (even if the ultimate goal was of a selfish motive), now each nation was driven against each other. Was this God’s plan all along?
9 Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.
It would be interesting to know how God did this. Was it from natural disasters, perhaps? Was the land on Earth one huge continent, and due to the Lord separating them, he merely divided up the land into separate islands/continents? I see a lot of conjecture from others that after the Lord confounded their language, the people naturally gathered together depending on like-language and set off as a group on their own. But this verse states that “the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth”. Not that the people took it upon themselves to do as a natural response to finding others with the same language. I find it fascinating that I cannot find many theories or studies into exactly how God accomplishes this. I see a lot of “whys”, but not many “hows”, and if there are, then it’s mostly assumptions that people scattered on their own based on their language. Which doesn’t seem to be the case when taking the verse in context.
I also wonder if the United Nations is attempting to re-unify these segregated peoples into a “New World Order” in yet again another direct opposition to God’s will – and perhaps attempt more rebellious acts to uphold their tradition… This is just speculation, of course, but further research into these organizations and their cohorts does not look to be a promising endeavor for the rest of humanity, and instead more of a dominion over the world by tptsb (who are probably the same kind of beings trying to reach the Heavens to begin with).

10 This is the genealogy of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old, and begot Arphaxad two years after the flood.
From here on, I cannot give much of a commentary, since many of these names I have not yet studied in depth. With further research and information gathering, I will be able to better flesh out these texts, but in the meantime I can only use it as a basis for a general genealogy line.
11 After he begot Arphaxad, Shem lived five hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.
12 Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Salah.
13 After he begot Salah, Arphaxad lived four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters.
14 Salah lived thirty years, and begot Eber.
15 After he begot Eber, Salah lived four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters.
16 Eber lived thirty-four years, and begot Peleg.
17 After he begot Peleg, Eber lived four hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters.
18 Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu.
19 After he begot Reu, Peleg lived two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters.
20 Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Serug.
21 After he begot Serug, Reu lived two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters.
22 Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor.
23 After he begot Nahor, Serug lived two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.
24 Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and begot Terah.
25 After he begot Terah, Nahor lived one hundred and nineteen years, and begot sons and daughters.
26 Now Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
27 This is the genealogy of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran begot Lot.
28 And Haran died before his father Terah in his native land, in Ur of the Chaldeans.
29 Then Abram and Nahor took wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah.
30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
31 And Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s wife, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran and dwelt there.
The next chapter deals with this account more in detail, so I will wait before I comment anything further on this particular story.
32 So the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran.

Once I research more and get a better feel of the biblical names and the genealogy of those listed in this chapter, I will have to come back to edit and fill in the spaces. As it is now, there was very limited information I could offer as to the lineage of Shem since I am unfamiliar with most of their names. With further bible study it will help to fill in those missing pieces.

As usual, I want to reiterate that some of my thoughts and theories may be way off base, and I also research some other things on the side as well to try and get a broader understanding of what I’m reading, so please bear with me, or, even better, if you have insights that bring more light to these verses, please let me know.

I enjoy bouncing off theories and theology off of each other and love to hear other people’s perspectives on things. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Are You Racist? If You’re White, You’re Going to be Told You Are.

No matter how you really feel.

I’m not sure where this ever pervasive assumption that all white people are racist, even if you know you’re not, developed from, but to say that it’s not an issue in today’s society is undermining the root cause of division and hostility we see all around us. (Or at least, it seems as if they’re TRYING to cause division and hostility in us.)

I think many of us know by now about the unbelievable and, quite frankly, ridiculous, on-line seminar that coca-cola made available for its workers. With such lovely sentiments as this:

Wow. If this isn’t the definition of racism, I don’t know what is.

The author of this seminar, Robin DiAngelo (although she is now contesting that she has written this – but you can check out the video where she calls white people “difficult” and “a-holes” here (starting @ 2:09) as well as some of her other biased assumptions – so take that for what it’s worth), claims that to be white is to be:

– oppressive
– arrogant
– certain
– defensive
– ignorant
– less humble than everyone else
– white people don’t listen
– white people don’t believe (believe what?)
– apathetic
– participate in white solidarity

And then she has the audacity to accuse white people of being socialized to believe that being white is superior to, literally, anyone else. If children are being raised into thinking that they’re “superior” than other races, than that is the matter of parenting, social conditioning, and the education system. There are certainly occurrences of upbringing that exposes children to separation and division, which most definitely should be addressed, but to incriminate EVERYONE as a whole based on these cases is participating in stereotyping and biased (false) assumptions.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly wasn’t conditioned to think one way or another about matters of skin color. I can’t speak for others, of course, but in my life, I was raised to not judge people based on race, looks, skin color, etc. Even outside of home, in schools and stores, etc. I didn’t even think about making judgements between one group of people and the next. We are all people, and all deserve love and respect.

To say that I come from very diverse ethnic groups is putting it mildly. My direct and extended family and friends are composed of Asians, blacks, Mexicans, whites, mixed-races, etc. I don’t make it a point to know everyone’s genealogy or ethnic/cultural background because it’s who they are as a person, as an individual, their personality that matters to me.

My childhood friends consisted of an eclectic group, running the gamut of: blonde cheerleader, Mexican goth girl, smart black guy, emo boy, prankster red-headed kid, myself as the shy girl – did I care about anyone’s ethnic background or skin color? lol No. I adored them all the same. Did I ever think I was better than them because of the difference of skin color? Again, no.

“A concerned NYC parent summed up this orchestrated descent into de facto apartheid. “I grew up partly in New York on the Upper West Side and when I was young, you’d see all these kids playing in the yard at recess — black, white, Hispanic, Asian, whatever — and they all got along great,” he writes. “Now you have the schools teaching white kids they should feel guilty and that black kids should resent them.”

Racists Masquerading as Educators

Growing up, my media crushes included some of the following (just to show the diverse range of who I was attracted to – most of them due to their character’s personality)

He makes me laugh. What can I say? I love some good (and sometimes awful) puns.

(Lee Ki-woo)
His character was a bit arrogant, but by no means a bad person; and still sympathetic.
(Mario Casas as anyone)
He’s a great actor and I enjoy watching him no matter what character he plays.
(Alfred Molina as Doc Ock)
I appreciate a bad (misunderstood?) guy turned good.

Who wouldn’t adore a man who gets amused with pictures of poodles on checks?

(Tom Hiddleston as Loki)
White (and sometimes blue) / Bad (and sometimes good) – tricky trickster is compelling.

Hisham Tawfiq

(Hisham Tawfiq as Dembe)
I love his stoic yet touching portrayal of a dedicated, loyal bodyguard and devoted friend.

Hm… I see skinny (skeletal, actually…), Asian, Spanish, American, English, (headless?), white, blue, black… it’s almost as if race and skin color don’t matter to me. Imagine that.

I’ve dated blacks, Mexicans, whites, short, tall, skinny, stout… I also teach my son not to judge based on skin color. And not to judge on looks at all.

How?

By example. I treat everyone equally. I don’t make it a point to mention skin color, nationality, etc. And he doesn’t either. His favorite teacher is a black lady; he has friends that are of many different races and colors.

Of course you don’t have to believe me since this is all anecdotal, but seeing as how I’ve been actively exposing corrupt agencies for aiming at black people with their suspected depopulation agenda (looking at you Margaret Sanger/Planned Parenthood/Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, “(untested) covid vaccines should go to black people first and many other people of color”/Tuskegee Syphilis experiment, etc. – unironically all of which are white people who have initiated these agendas) then I don’t really feel the need to keep defending myself.

But here is this lady, DiAngelo, presuming to know how every single white person was socialized and raised. Here is a snippet from her very own site on what she’s all about:

From incisive and wide-ranging critiques of how white folks deflect, deny, and evade the topic of racism, and the implications of our own racial identity and position, to an absolutely on-point interrogation of how racism and whiteness influence the larger educational process,

Huh. It sounds like a “her” problem and not everyone else’s. Maybe SHE was raised with these beliefs and she’s trying to break out of it, but to imply that every single white person is arrogant, ignorant, etc., etc. is JUDGING PEOPLE BASED ON THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN. 

Unlike what certain groups believe, the need for some to particularly point out how racist white people are and that they just don’t know it, is quite possibly the most inane concept I’ve ever heard. And to expect people of any nationality or race to be ashamed of who they are based solely on their skin color is deliberately steering people towards EXCLUSION instead of INCLUSION, like they’re trying to make people believe.

Am I saying that some people weren’t born with the same ideology as DiAngelo? Certainly not. Am I saying that racism and stereotyping doesn’t exist? Again, certainly not. But what I am saying is that pressuring people to think that they should feel one way just because someone says so and assumes so just because of the color of their skin, seems to me the very definition of racism and deliberately aimed at creating more division and more chaos.

And I am saying that the approach that some people and industries are implementing, such as:

“I know! The best way to end racism is to mention it at every single turn! No matter we go, let’s mention black, white, supremacy, privilege, etc., etc., etc.! Let’s mention it in our schools. Let’s mention it in our jobs. Let’s mention it all over social media. Let’s even tell black people that they’re not black enough if they don’t think or act a particular way! And if they’re white, let’s make them state just how white they are, so we can judge them based on their own perception of whiteness. It’s perfect!”

is not working out as much as they’d hope.

This is sad. It’s sad that this is what’s allowed to be taught in schools. How about instead of teaching children that we should rate our whiteness or blackness, or asianness, or anything like that, that we just treat each other with kindness and respect? Why are we specifically highlighting our skin color and teaching children to notice this instead of just including everyone no matter who they are or what they look like? This is highly disturbing to me and it’s a belief system that can only inflict more doubt and damage rather than getting everyone together on the same page. As a matter of fact, all of these accusations of racism and indoctrination in schools are doing the complete opposite of what they’re “allegedly” trying to achieve.

It’s unbelievable that huge corporations like coca-cola will pay for this type of segregation seminar.

And it must come as a shock to Robin DiAngelo when you have a black lady who understands the repercussions that this type of harmful doctrine imposes on others:

“If a corporate company sent around a training kit instructing black people how to “be less black”, the world would implode and lawsuits would follow.

I genuinely hope these employees sue @CocaCola
for blatant racism and discrimination.”

@RealCandaceO

But apparently according to DiAngelo, Candace Owens just needs to accept that all whites are racist and experience white privilege, and Candace should play the victim card like every black person and accuse whites of denying their inherent racism and privilege.

And whatever happened to these very wise words from this well-respected black man?:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.


one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.


And when this happens, and when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last. Free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.

When we suffer from oppression, even an illusion of oppression, these immortalized words can’t be realized. When we keep having segregation issues thrust upon us and our children, instead of understanding each other and respecting each other for who we are and our differences, when we keep regressing back to the past instead of making a change for the future – then we will be stuck with an ever-present perpetual division and animosity of others simply due to the color of our skin.

No matter what Robin DiAngelo or anyone else tries to make it seem, not every white person is born with the belief that they are better than any other race. And anyone who surmises that we’re mistaken and that we just haven’t owned up to our white supremacy is severely misled and/or delusional.

With all of this being said, please don’t let a person of any race try to psychologically manipulate you into making you believe that you’re the bad guy. If you do realize that you may be participating in discrimination or prejudice, then by all means, please look within and learn to practice appreciation and love and patience with those that are different than you. If, however, you know that this doesn’t apply to you, then do not cave into societal pressure and apologize for your skin color. We will ultimately not be judged by our looks, but by what’s in our hearts.

If you have suffered at the hands of discrimination, inequality, prejudice, racism or anything of the like, then I truly am sorry and hope with every fiber of my being that we as a collective whole can move past this and look beyond what we are naturally born into. I find every race, ethnicity, culture, skin color etc. worthy of life, love and freedom and wish for a united, benevolent society.

And if Robin DiAngelo and others like her are legitimately suffering from a shameful background of white privilege and racism, then I feel for her and hope she is able to address it and forgive herself and others for perpetrating it. And hope that she learns to rise above it and grow to be more inclusive and compassionate. But to impose her ideologies unnecessarily on others due to her own upbringing and/or guilt is a fruitless and harmful endeavor. (And that’s, of course, if this isn’t an intentional agenda to begin with.)

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either.
