Tower of Babel
Leaving aside literalism, which I fully respect exists, what do people make of this story?
I reflect it is written by a culture that had left Egypt with a hierarchical society based with a peak of a man God. Egyptian socieity was in this way an example of human spirtual hubris, the the peak being God rather than a servant of God.
The foolishness of such things would be writ large by the different societies holding different moralities and different moral hierarchies.
But, I struggle with it.
