The new Tower of Babel

I heard once that the theory is, that the famed ancient city of babel was located in Iraq on the Euphrates.  It doesn’t really matter if that’s right at all though.  It doesn’t even matter if the Euphrates doesn’t go through Iraq.  Both of those are true, BTW, I don’t just make shit up and post it here.  Actually, I do just make shit up and post it here, but I at least don’t say that it’s truth when I do.  I don’t think.  Regardless, below is a picture of the Burj Dubai, the newest addition to the most expensive, decadent city in the world, Dubai.  Next to it is a rendition of the fabled Tower of Babel.   Before the images though, I’ll let you in on something.  Burj means tower.  The Tower of Babel was Burj Babel.  There’s a bit of a coincidence going on here.

What does this mean for Dubai?  Well, Babylon no longer exists.  I’ll leave you with that.
