Re: Denial Of The Evidence
Their progress they impeded. This wasnt a bible tablet, it was a babylonian one.
Which just shows where Israel stole the Babel story from, the Babylonians who were no more advanced in humanism & science than were the Israelites. Mythology is mythology no matter where the source is.

Re: Denial Of The Evidence
They didnt 'steal' anything. The isrealites were not the only nation involved when the languages were confused so its only natural that many different nations have the same story.
Israel was not a nation at the time of the alleged tower. It predates Abraham who was a Babylonian, born in Ur, which at the time was a Babylonian city. All of the "Nations" you talk about are derived from Babylon, who controlled all of Mesopotamia at the time.

Re: Denial Of The Evidence
The babylonians came from the decendents of Noahs son Ham.
The Babylonians were semetic and spoke the language from which Hebrew was later derived. Your descendant from Ham's son is folklore just as the Moabites & Ammonites as alleged descendants of Lot. These were hated peoples of Israel and were given antecedants to match.

Re: Denial Of The Evidence
the idea that the chinese character for ship is strangely similar to the noahs ark story seems too much for some of you to handle.
So where are the animals & the rain?

Re: Denial Of The Evidence
you can put it down to evolution if you want
But you do realise that linguists look for such similarities to determine if a language is related to another?
In this case its was said that the chinese were already an established nation far away from the mesopotamians and therefore their language was completely independent and not related....IOW it was established before the 'so called' confusion of languages incident.
So this similarity is either just a coincidence, or the chinese were not an established nation at the time and were a part of the people of mesopotamia who were dispersed after the tower of babel incident.
Yes similarities are used and it is the point that the similarities are which separate the Sino-Tibetan (ie Chinese), from the Hameto-Semetic(ie Arabic, Hebrew, Egyptian, Babylonian etc) or from the Indo-European (ie Romance, Germanic, Slavic, Hindi, Persian etc) or from the aboriginal Langauges (ie Austaloid, Ainu or Basque). It is not just similarities but how & when these similarities occured. The same with the other language families.

Re: Denial Of The Evidence
Phoenician is a Semetic not Hametic Language
Oxford University press writes:
Phoenician
■ noun
a member of an ancient Semitic people inhabiting Phoenicia in the eastern Mediterranean.
the Semitic language of the Phoenicians.
■ adjective relating to Phoenicia or its language.

They convert carbon dioxide gas and water into wood
In reality what is formed is glucose, 2 isomeric forms, a-D-Glucose and b-D-Glucose. Both are later condensed, through other reactions, to form Starch & Cellulose respectively. The basic reason we cannot form wood is that there are other substances besides cellulose that are contained in wood. Forming cellulose from water & Carbon Dioxide would be no problem whereas forming, say, maple wood, would.
