Yes, the Tower of Babel is the Probable Origin of All Human Languages

 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there. They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole 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[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

Genesis chapter 11

Christian pastor, on the origin of human languages: Sure… because modern “linguistic experts” give such compelling research. Have you read any of their research? I don’t think there is anything more befuddled. Their so-called “theories” make the the Tower of Babel explanation seem reasonable.

Gary: I have come to the conclusion that people who distrust expert opinion either: never graduated from college, or if they did, their college very likely had “Bible” located somewhere in it’s title.

This is why I propose that the United States offer a free public university education to every citizen who wants it. Ignorance and stupidity are serious detriments to an advanced industrialized society.

  1. Makes me think of the character Kenneth Parcell on the 30 rock show who was a naive religious simpleton. One time he said something like he learned about science during Bible class.

  2. Hello Gary. Public education at all levels has been shown to be a huge benefit to the communities and society at large. As the population is more educated, they make better choices. It more than pays for itself. The US could learn from other countries that do that for their population. Hugs
