The Tower of Babel is an ancient biblical tale of the Book of Genesis said to explain life after Noah’s Great Flood. According to the story, which many believe to be a myth, God erected a huge structure from the heavens to Earth to unite all humans, before scattering them across the globe. However, a discovery made in the Babylon Province of Iraq could provide evidence this mega-complex actually existed.
An extract from Genesis 11 reads: “Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.
“As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Western Asia and settled there. They said to each other, ‘Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.’
“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.‘”
According to Amazon Prime’s “Bible Conspiracies”, a find made in Borshippa archaeological site matches that of the ancient tale.
The 2017 documentary revealed: “The Tower of Babel was said to be a myth by many scholars.
“However, a series of cylinders were found in Borshippa which pieced together a huge tower.
“These may be part of the Tower of Babel due to their sheer size and evidence of burned stonework.
”The investigation goes on to explain how the Bible says the structure would later be destroyed by angels under God’s orders.”
The series continued: “Many believe the tower was destroyed by God, but the text actually tells us it was a strange race, referred to as the Anunnaki.
“These Anunnaki were described as coming from the heavens, sent to guide humans.
“In times gone by they were called angels, but today we might call them aliens.
“In Genesis 6:4 we get a rather peculiar description of them.
”The passage does describe how a group of giants were sent down by God to rule the Earth, however, does not reveal their involvement with the Tower of Babel.”
It reads: “There were giants in the earth in those days and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them.
“The same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”
