"Anon-E-Moose, your arguments are wearing thin now"
And yours aren't? Like I say, any fundie bullshit you can possibly spew we've heard a trillion times before. And as we haven't been impressed then, what makes you think we'll take on board any of your verbal diarrhoea now?
Except for the only relevant one (Certainly in our case): proving the existence of your so-called 'God' to the satisfaction of we Atheists.
If you can, then we'll talk. If you can't, then why are you here? What possible practical purpose would anything you say serve to the likes of us here at FSTDT? Other than be true to your real screename: Troll4Life. Like I say:
We're doing it for the lulz. What's your excuse, 'dearie'?
Ah, so 'pride' is no longer a deadly sin, eh? The architects, planners, builders & owners of the tall structures (especially the current highest, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai) are proud of what they did: creating a structure far higher than the Tower of Babel (funny that the Bible doesn't give exact, precise info on it's size, or when, where or which structure said 'tower' was; mayhaps the Ziggurat at Ur in Babylon, now modern-day Iraq, said remains are of?).
To say nothing of the pride of NASA, Roscosmos, ESA & JAXA, that is the International Space Station, infinitely higher than even the Burj Khalifa, never mind the Tower of Babel.
Since 1957 when the model of the universe described in the Bible was destroyed by Sputnik 1 & Laika, by the pride of Soviet space science. And how proud Yuri Gagarin was to be the first man in space; further destroying the Bible.
The culmination of modern man's pride in destroying the insane superstitious bullshit that was the 'Word of God' that is the Bible.
Seems the advancement of humanity - technologically - has made your 'God' powerless, nay, impotent, to act against us (if a 'God' exists in the first place to actually act, that is. Which is where the likes of you come in, Troll4Life: Prove a 'God exists, to our satisfaction.) Certainly our ability to build taller & taller structures - and those who went even higher. Those who have done so have made a name for themselves.
Like I say: Yuri Gagarin (first man in space). Valentina Tereshkova (first woman in space). Alexey Leonov (first EVA - or 'spacewalk'). Neil Armstrong (first man on the Moon).
And yet, nothing happened to them, to punish them for their sins of 'pride'.
Or mayhaps 'Pride' has an entirely different meaning these days, eh dearie? But then 'pride' being a 'sin' isn't. Because 'sin' is merely - like all those structures - a man-made concept.
Rather like your 'God'.
No 'God', no sin. But then...:
"but because they were haughty and were building it WITH THE INTENT OF RISING UP AGAINST GOD. IT WAS LIKE LUCIFER/SATAN ALL OVER AGAIN! That is a BIG difference"
Building a tower to get as high as possible. Because they can. Then, and now with the Burj Khalifa. Sputnik 1 in 1957, the ISS in recent years, and the Large Hadron Collider now. Science rising up against religion, via scientific facts. As it was centuries ago, with the first lightning conductor (and the LHC will, to confirm the scientific model by cosmologists & theoretical physicists). Filling gaps. Proving the Bible wrong. Mysteries explained (whereas the Bible never does). Isn't that man being haughty again? The intent is still the same. And where is your so-called 'God' to slap down such men, confusing them further, to put man back in his place? Said tall structures, the ISS and the LHC are still intact. Still man-made. Still existing.
Unlike your so-called 'God'.
And that's the ultimate difference.
...oh, and one more thing: if it was your so-called 'God' who gave humanity all those different languages then (the Tower of Babel)...
...how do you account for the likes of Esperanto, and Klingon? Care to explain Marc Okrand's creation of the latter, seeing as we mere mortals couldn't possibly come up with any forms of linguistic communication by ourselves!. If you can, that is (your 'Bible' certainly can't).
"Apropos of the Tower of Babel story, I'm curious as to why language KEEPS getting confounded, from the English of Chaucer through to today's versions."
As languages - especially sub-tongues & dialects - have evolved (Why no mention in the Bible of English dialects: 'Received Pronunciation'/Estuary, Cockney, Scouse, Manc, Brummie, Geordie & Mackem, Yorkshire ('Tyke') etc?). As we're seeing these days, with the new argot spoken by youth today (known as 'Chavs'): Fuckwit.
