People tried to build a tower up to heaven.
God (worried they would succeed?) destroyed the tower.
This must have been back when heaven was actually located on the clouds, before it relocated to space where we know it is today.
God didn't stop there. He also made everyone speak different languages, so they wouldn't be able to reconnect and restart the Babel project.*
Which is why it seems strange when people are strongly patriotic, strongly xenophobic, AND strongly religious.
e.g. "Don't come to America, land of Jesus, until you speak English like God intended."
Because God was the one who made everyone speak different, remember?**
(Which means he was also the one who made everyone THINK different as well.
Which led to the famous Apple slogan that the snake used on Eve.
Which means that Steve Jobs is the devil?***
* And it worked. They didn't even end up making the MOVIE "Babel" for thousands of years, let alone attempt an actual tower again.
** I just said it. You got it.
*** And Ipods are his evil tools.
