We read in Genesis 11:1-9, "Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. 3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” 5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language, they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language, so they will not understand each other.” 8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth." After God scattered the people gathered in Babel, we see they went to all parts of the world [I assume, both known as well as unknown parts]. From that point on, due to the language barriers, the people, once joined by common language, had to huddle together and develop cultures unigue to the areas in which they settled. Even though it is apparent these people were knowledgeable about Jehovah God, because they made a united effort to build a tower high enough to reach God and "Make a name for themselves!" Remember, these people were scattered, and until the Law or later in history, the Gospel made its way to their new lands/cultures, they hand no knowledge of the God of creation per the Jewish Laws they were familiar with when they built the tower to reach God! So, other than what their ancestors may have remembered while living in Babel, because they were scattered everywhere, they were back at the beginning with religion, and many of our world religions seemed to have roots and came out of this mass scattering. So .... by what standard did God judge them upon their death? Or were all of them destined for hell?
