The building of the Tower of Babel and the Confusion of Tongues(languages) in ancient Babylon is mentioned rather briefly inGenesis Chapters 10 and 11. Genesis 10 is the so-called "--a list of 70 namesof Noah's descendants through Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The listis probably not complete, but we are given a good picture of thedivision of our race into three branches each having been giftedspecial giftedness and unique qualities by God, highlighting thespiritual, intellectual and physical sides of man as he was createdin the image of God. Genesis 10:6-12 includes a parentheticalsection on one of the sons of grandsons Ham, Nimrod the son ofCush.

No one yet adequately understands the brain and its controlof human speech. Therefore, no one understands what manner ofphysiologic changes in the brain and central nervous system wouldbe necessary to cause different groups of people to associatedifferent sounds with any given concept. Perhaps future researchwill throw light on this phenomenon but, in the meantime, thereis no better explanation than that it was God who did "thereconfound their language, that they may not understand one another'sspeech" (Gen. 11:7).--Henry M.

Essay: Does God Exist? by Tawa Anderson - …
Geologists have recently found evidence that something very strange happened to the earth right at the Pre-Cambrian boundary. Discoveries like this make science exciting! It appears that a global freeze suddenly gave way to a very hot period. This abrupt change must have had something to do with the sudden explosion of life forms, but what? The researchers suppose that isolation and selection pressure during that event produced an "evolution engine" capable of great leaps in a short space of time. But the details, the mechanism, and the verification are still anybody's guess.
by Tawa Anderson Is there a God
This brings us to a major conclusion. Verses 5 and 6 present Enoch as an example of an ancient who gained approval through faith. What was special about Enoch? The most obvious answer is that God took him directly without death -- "Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him." Genesis 5:24. However, Hebrews 11:5 doesn't focus on the miracle, it focuses on how he "walked with God." (Recall that walking is what God wanted to do with Adam and Eve. Genesis 3:8.) What does it say about Enoch's walk with God? Only that "before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." Hebrews 11:5 (KJV). Note that this language is ambiguous, having three possible interpretations, either: 1) before Enoch's translation, God gave testimony that Enoch pleased Him (this is the option favored by the modern translations); or 2) before Enoch's translation, Enoch himself testified to others that "I please God;" or 3) before Enoch's translation, other people spoke of him as one who pleased God. This same ambiguity is found in the Greek text. Enoch is the subject, God is the dative object without a preposition (leaving open the question whether it's an indirect object or an instrumental dative). The verb is a single compound verb consisting of a perfect passive ("had been borne witness," with no answer to the question "by whom?") followed by a perfect infinitive ("to have pleased") followed by "God" in the dative.
1 How can you be sure that God exists
B. We don't have to compromise on God's command not to bear false witness. This is either the Eighth or the Ninth Commandment, depending on how you number them (see Exodus 20:16 and Deuteronomy 5:20). I believe Jesus calls us to a high standard of truth. We don't have to shoehorn every new scientific discovery into the young-earth creationist interpretation of Genesis; instead, we are free to discover how God reveals Himself to us in the ways of His creation.
