in short, the laws of economics is paralleled to the laws of heaven. Nimrod being a "hunter" of men, was a politician that persuaded Bable to make thing equal, that they would now build with "brick" (make everyone equal) and use "mortar" (a monetary system) in place of "rocks" (individualism) , which became the social economic language, giving them the power to do whatever they "could imagine"... Just like the USSR imagining of going to the moon and using the social economic strength to do so. But because heaven rewards individualism and independence, a social program such as Bable was doomed to the laws of heaven and economics and had to suffer a confounding of language ( a collapsed social economic system), where the money no longer could talk, trade, or persuade... which also validates the adage that "money talks".
If you look up "confounded" in the 1828 Webster's dictionary you see this: "1. Mixed or blended in disorder; perplexed; abashed; dismayed; put to shame and silence; astonished."Sounds just like what God needed done, after he had said "this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."
They needed to be put to shame and silence, and to be astonished at his power.

Hi, Rex. Thanks for your comment. I enjoyed reading your summary of the "confounding" of languages in South Africa.
The tentative (and still controversial) linkage of Sumerian with the Austric (including Austronesian) language superfamily by Paul Manansala, (Manansala, Paul Kekai, 1996. The Austric origins of the Sumerian language. Language Form, 22 (1-2)).and the very wide southeast Asian distribution of flood and "the two brothers" legends as discussed by Stephen Oppenheimer in his
Thanks for an interesting article.
One observes how the languages in South Africa are gradually merging due nto the influx of people of different languages, cultures and backgrounds now having to come to an understanding of one another by language communication. The old "English" English is gradually being superseded by a South African English which is a mixture of English, Afrikaans(an African version of Dutch), Xulu, Xhosa, and some of the nine Black languages spoken by people who live south of the Limpopo. Inntermingling with these are the languages of immigrants from Zimbabwe, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Central African Rep, Ghanian who see South Africa as their economic salvation. In a hundred years we will have a conglomeration of languages that onlty people who live in South Africa will understand.
