3184 BC, August 24, Wednesday —Sumer:
Plans have been laid for the Tower of Babel and construction has already begun in Nimrod’s kingdom, otherwise known as Sumer.
The purpose of the tower and surrounding city is threefold.
1. Survive global climate change. The world is growing colder and wetter. Save humanity from a second global deluge.
2. Prevent brain-drain to neighboring lands. If humanity remains united, more than eight will survive God’s next outburst.
3. Finger in your eye, God.
The tower will be constructed in Nimrod’s kingdom, the first kingdom on earth. There is little evidence he planned the Tower of Babel, but he did not oppose it.
