According to the Bible, this is what happened after the Great Flood:
” And the whole earth spoke one language, and used the same words.
And it came to pass, as they migrated from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Sh’-nar
[Babylonia: a region in Mesopotamia] and settled
And they said, Come on, let us build ourselves a city and a tower, whose top will reach the skies; and let us make a name for ourselves, otherwise we will be scattered all over the face of the earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the men were building.
And the Lord said, Look, the people are united, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will stop them from doing what they take in their minds to do.
Come on, let us go down, and there confuse their language so that they cannot understand one another’s speech.
So the Lord scattered them abroad from there all over the face of the earth: and they stopped building the city.
Therefore the name of it is called Babel: because the Lord did there confuse the language of the entire earth: and from there did the Lord scatter them abroad over
the face of the whole Earth. “
Early humans were reported to be a
constant headache to their Custodial masters. The slave creatures not only disobeyed their rulers, they often banded
together and rebelled.
This made human unity undesirable to Earth’s Custodial rulers—it was better that humans be disunited. One of the ways in which the problem of human unity was solved is described in the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel—a tale which also has its roots in early
In The Twelfth Planet, Mr. Sitchin offers an intriguing analysis of the Tower of Babel story.
If Mr. Sitchin’s provocative analysis is accurate, we would better understand why the Custodial entities became so alarmed by the Tower of Babel and felt such a compelling need to thoroughly disunite the human race.
Ancient stories and legends from other parts of the world indirectly support the Tower of Babel story. The Japanese
people, Alaskan Eskimos, South Americans, and Egyptians all have traditions stating that their earliest forefathers had
either been transported by humanlike “gods” to where the modern descendants live today, or that those “gods” had been the source of the local languages or writing.
It may be difficult to accept Mesopotamian and Biblical statements that ancient human society had been split apart thousands of years ago in a “divide and conquer” effort by flying extraterrestrials, even though the “divide and conquer” technique is frequently used by military and political leaders on Earth during wartime.
Interestingly, using the technique was advocated a number of years ago by a distinguished Yale professor if Earth should ever colonize other planets. The good professor suggested that Earth could
control another inhabited planet by pitting one native group against another.
If we compare ancient and modern ideas about how mankind came into existence, we find two very different versions. The ancient version is that an extraterrestrial society had come to possess Earth and sought to exploit the planet’s resources. To make the exploitation easier, a work
race was created: Homo sapiens.
Humans were treated as livestock and were frequently butchered when they became too numerous or troublesome.
To preserve Homo sapiens as a slave race and to prevent future rebellion, spiritual
knowledge was repressed, human beings were scattered geographically into different linguistic groups, and conditions were created to make physical survival on Earth an all-consuming chore from birth until death.
This arrangement was to be maintained indefinitely for as long as the
Custodial society possessed Earth.
In contrast, the modern
view is that human beings had evolved accidentally from “star stuff” into slime, into fishes, into monkeys, and finally
into people. The modern view actually seems more fanciful than the ancient one.
