The Tower of Babel

Part 2



This is Ken Ham, inviting you to come to Northern Kentucky to see the Ark Encounter.


Did you know that the Bible explains the origin of languages around the world?

You see, after the Flood, Noah’s descendants disobeyed God and refused to spread around the world. So God confused their language, forcing them to fill the earth.

Now, we can look at the genealogies recorded in Genesis and see that, from the original language, God created less than one hundred new ones. Well, language analysts have determined that all 7,000 languages spoken around the world today came from just 94 original ones. Over time, these language families have changed into new languages.

Like always, science confirms God’s Word from the beginning.
