The question I have for the BB concerns the principle of disavowing what God has done. For instance, we would probably all agree that God has made certain divisions: man/woman, species of birds and fish, light and dark, ... It is also true that God uses the aspects of separation to distinguishing purposes: separating the spotted/unspotted, Jews/gentiles, ... In both the examples above it is self evident that God considers removal of the separations problematic. Example: blending an eagle with a humming bird, or shark with a goldfish... It is also noted that the Scriptures place certain restrictions as to health, dietary, social, worship, ... that marked out His people as different and unique. Having established that God divides and humankind is regarded as going against God's way by disavowing and making changes to that established way, I thought the BB might consider the following: God looked down and saw the folks construction work and knowing that it was dangerous, separated the folks by placing certain language barriers to prevent cooperation. Does then humankind actually work in some manner against the way of God by tearing down the barrier and acquiring a non-native language? Is it actually wrong to learn another language? Perhaps some may consider such a notion as absurd, but I remind the folks that it was God who divided the humankind by languages, as he divided many other items of nature. Also, humankind blends species to "strengthen the breed" or genetically engineer to ward off disease. Is this actually a work against the desire of God? I would like to keep the thread limited to languages, but frankly the principle would apply to a vast number of areas the BB folks may want to trek.
