    Well, apparently the Almighty was worried about the power of the unity of mankind in speaking a common language, which they were following the Great Flood and the subsequent construction of the tower, and he therefore said, "Come, let us go down and confound their speech."

    He did - and we've been at each others' throats ever since :rolleyes:

    That Old Testament God did some strange stuff.

    So IMO the 'Babel' title is spot on - it helps if we all understand what others are saying.

    Although some people won't get the reference - the first thing I thought was the Babel Fish from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

    (Douglas Adams was an absolute genius!)

    It's a hilarious book - I actually quite liked the movie too, although they couldn't put ALL the funny stuff from the book in it.

    About a hundred years ago someone game me a HGTG Commodore 64 game, I tried to play it but didn't have a clue what I was supposed to do. :oops:
