Towers of Babel

This is the architect's rendering of the Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, near the Red Sea, which is expected to reach a height of over 1,000 meters (3,280 feet). When it is completed it will be the tallest structure on planet earth.

I wondered when I saw the image today if all of the skyscrapers around the world are modern man's attempts at rebuilding the Tower of Babel?

What do you think? Why do we continue to build these skyscrapers when smaller ones might do?


  1. The old Tower of Babel was a vain attempt to reach God. Maybe the new ones are built by men who vainly think they are gods.

  2. ...and I just posted on God dispersing them by languages and confusing them :)
