Blessed, God filled Season! El Shaddaidirected, Glory FILLED, God glorified in you and through you, we pray in The Name of He Who brought and bought our salvation – Jesus, Amen
One specific thing is that there is a difference between the initial “family” family of God and ‘the rest’.
Yes! The generations have produced a “google”- seven quintillion, five hundred quadrillion descendants of Adam and Eve
Where is this said?
God shared “I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your offspring as the stars of Heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of his enemies.”
Hold up! Stars in the ‘heavens’? On ‘clear days’ what do we see?
They said, if you assume a grain of sand has an average size and you calculate how many grains are in a teaspoon and then multiply by all the beaches and deserts in the world, the Earth has roughly (and we’re speaking very roughly here) 7.5 x 1018 grains of sand, or seven quintillion, five hundred quadrillion grains.
These keep on going! Stars in the sky?
We can Palm 139 it! Amen
The Milky Way is the galaxy in which the Earth resides. Part of it is visible on a clear night from Earth, as a thick band of stars stretching across the sky. We can see thousands of these stars with the naked eye, and many more in a telescope. But how many stars are in the Milky Way?
Thoughts! It leads to SO many! BUT, we are led to know that on Earth – MAN was created in The image of God! So very many ways to go with this! First and foremost there was the unseen. Something happened and there came the “seem”. There is no way to even imagine what is out there!
Even with ‘differences’ in language, gifts, understanding; we have just started to ‘explore’ the Universe or more correctly I should say The Multiverse!
We, having read or heard of it, have read that differences were introduced because of what Man would do! As ONE body, the advances would be tremendous! I am chanced to say “What does it sound like when a ‘child’ attempts to ‘speak’? Or as we describe the fluent speaker of a foreign tongue? Babble!”
verb (used without object), bab·bled, bab·bling.

verb (used with object), bab·bled, bab·bling.

The use of balal ‘to confuse’ in the original Hebrew version of the passage is understood by modern Biblical scholars to be “a satirical word play in the story,” as Pitard told the AP, taking advantage of the Hebrew verb’s phonetic similarity to the Akkadian place names Babel and Babylon, which actually derive from bab.
As I said this is a topic that lends to MUCH discourse for SO many reasons.
The use/origin of words IS a school!
The original derivation of the name Babel (also the Hebrew name for Babylon) is uncertain. The native, Akkadian name of the city was Bāb-ilim, meaning “gate of God”.
