Dave: The Bible records an amazing event in Human history – it’s called the Tower of Babel!
Jeff: All the people of the world were gathered together to build a giant tower, but God threw it down and confused their language.
Dave: That’s amazing! But is there any archaeological evidence?
Jeff: Well, as a matter of fact… YES, Dave, there is!
Dave: Oh, really? Hit me with it.
Jeff: We have historical records that the King of Ur, who was King about 2000 BC, received orders to build a HUGE tower – and guess what happened.
Dave: It’s not just like…
Jeff: Yeah – archaeologists found a tablet that says the tower project by the King of Ur, who wasn’t a Christian or a Jew, offended the gods so they threw it down and the speech of the people became strange.
Dave: The similarity between that and the Bible story are kind of eerie!
Jeff: Yes, and close enough that we should give a second look at the historicity of the Tower of Babel.
