DUBAI, United Arab Emirates â With its world's tallest building nearing completion, Dubai said Sunday it is embarking on an even more ambitious skyscraper: one that will soar more than 10 American football fields.
That's about two-thirds of a mile or the height of more than three of New York's Chrysler Buildings stacked end-to-end.
Babel had nothing on this place.
"This is unbelievably groundbreaking design," Chief Executive Chris O'Donnell said during a briefing at the company's sales center, not far from the proposed site. "This still takes my breath away."
It is certaianly a monument and statement of pride that's for sure.
However, I think that the Tower of Babel was more about that pride being a coming together of ALL peoples in a common cause against God's authority on earth.
I think the building of the European Union, which involves the coming together of more nations than ever before to build a society 'Not' based on the acceptance of God's laws and teachings, infact a deliberate attempt to reject them, and 'Making things difficult' for those who want to hold fast to Gods laws' is so very much a 'new Babel'!!! Mystery Babelon, the spirit of rebellion at it's fullest is coming and I'm sure eventually the EU's boundries will spead global as it asserts it's authority once built.
The difference between a european empire and a US empire, is that Europe has proved in the past and again now, that it is built on a history of dictatorships, facistism and communism at its core, and that stands today, which is why the UK has found it hard to become a full member and held back. However, they will! Because; 'they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?'
