The Tower Of Babel Under Construction

Dubai, UAE -- An ancient legend is coming to life in this tiny emirate. The Tower Of Babel is under construction on the shores of the Persian Gulf. The Tower will be 5433 cubits and 2 palms high (about 1.5 miles) when completed. The Tower of Babel will be the most magnificent building ever made by mankind when it is completed on December 21, 2012.

Adam Nimrod is the chief engineer for th multi-billion dollar project. Mr. Nimrod has consulted with Bible scholars from around the world for decades about his pet project. He has studied ancient texts and legends for its design. The Tower of Babel will be a gigantic ziggurat reaching up to Heaven itself. A red heifer was ceremoniously sacrificed to Yahweh before construction began.

It's hoped the Babel Project will bring the human race together once and for all. He has carefully chosen artisans from every part of the world. Every one of mankind's 2,509 languages and dialects will be spoken on the job. Mr. Nimrod has hired an army of interpreters to help build the Tower. Every race, nation, tribe, and clan on Earth is represented.

Mr. Nimrod expects the Tower of Babel to reunite mankind in a New World Order. The chief engineer is a very religious man. He believes the first Tower of Babel angered God. Mr. Nimrod believes God will like the new Tower that he is building. He hopes mankind will speak only one language after the building is completed in 2012.
