Did Babel Really Happen?


Part 8



This is Ken Ham, and our popular life-size Noah’s Ark is open in Northern Kentucky.


In Genesis, we read about what happened after the flood. Noah and his family were told to fill the earth. But his descendants didn’t obey—and they stayed together and built a city … and tower. So God confused their languages, forcing them to spread out.

But did this event really happen?

Absolutely! The Bible is real history. We see it confirmed over and over again. For example, around the world, we find the remains of ancient tower structures called ziggurats. Now, how did cultures all over the world come up with the exact same design? Well, because the whole world population was together at one point . . . and they built a tower together!
