There are about 3000 languages world-wide and many of them are dying out.
Pardon this atheist's question, but isn't it odd that wisdom could be ungodly? All hail Jehovah, the god of ignorance.

David D.G.

This poster is claiming that Satan confused our languages at the Tower of Babel? That directly contradicts the Bible (which describes God doing it), which he doubtless would claim is inerrant and not to be argued with. I'd love to see him try to push this point further -- highly comedic!

Witty Name Here

The Bible says that Satan is God's flunky.

I think if you're trying to get people to fear Satan, referring to him as a "lil dude" is probably not the best way to go about it.

Yeah, if we'd just kept good an' ignorant like God wanted, things wouldn't be the mess they are today. Stupid intelligence!

Also, there's more like 2-3 thousand, there is no way there are MILLIONS of languages. It'd be nearly impossible for people to communicate with eachother.

Let me get this straight. What you are trying to say is this (paraphrasing): "If someone believes in God, his wisdom comes from him. If someone doesn't believe in God, his wisdom comes from Satan (or somewhere else)."

Never mind that God made Satam according to you. Never mind that even in the Bible there were wiseguys that didn't believe in your specific god. But, what is important, since you claim that your God is all-present eternal source of everything is this: How to fuck you can get anything without messing with (or reaching into) that being one way or another? I mean, it's your philosophy. And includes both good(wisdom) and bad things (misery, pain etc).

P. S. What to fuck all of that has with tower of babel story? Those guys believed in god and wanted to pay him a visit. Old guy got afraid that people will see him while he's in the bathroom so he messed them up. Next thing you know, there are far more people and frickin' jumbo jets are flying through his living room.

Never mind the languages. I want to know how low Heaven was in the sky, that humans could have built a (stone) tower to reach it. And Genesis also is a bit contradictory. It indicates in some passages men had already developed separate languages. But the Babel story pivots on mankind sharing a common language until God intervenes. Can you spel M...Y...T...H ?

Actually, there are appoximatley 7000 languages.
Also, you know the Burj Dubai? 800 metres tall. So why isn't God going berzerk like he did with the Tower Of Babel?
And you can't reach Heaven by building a tower, because there is no Heaven in the sky. It's just air. So why was God so pissed off.
Also, why did God bother with the languages? Why not just destroy the tower?

Poe? Or proud to be ignorant

Now, as a Satanist, it would be very nice if Satan gave us cool abilities but the thing is, he's a deity, not Professor Xavier. Also, there aren't millions of languages in existence. There are somewhere between three and seven thousand, depending on whether you count dialects or not.
