Rage over Babylon by ZivCG Rage over Babylon by ZivCG
story
It was just another silent, peaceful day in Babylon, the center of all cultures, 5,500 years ago when all of a sudden,
clouds strangely started to gather over the Tower of Babel. Most people kept at their daily business,
not even realizing that the very existence of the tower had angered God. The first to realize what was happening were the animals.
They sensed something was wrong and begun panicking slightly before there were even signs of the chaos that was about to hit the tower.
After a short while the sky started to shape in an unnatural way, being very bright on one side and dark on the other.
This was in fact a revelation of God himself. At this point most people still didn't know what was going on and while some stood shocked and terrified,
others were fascinated by the spectacular view. Some people still kept at their daily occupations ignoring all the signs.
Moments later, the ground which the tower was built upon started trembling, increasingly shaking the very foundations of the tower.
Thats the point when this image takes place - just about the last second the Tower of Babylon stood tall, when it just started cracking up
(the lower stories beared the highest pressure) and a few moments before it collapsed and changed the face of human history forever.
While watching helplessly as mankinds' greatest creation began crumbling into nothing more than bricks and dust the confusion just got much greater
as God started to spread different languages among the cultures resulting in anger and forever separating mankind into many groups.

The tower didn't piss God off, man's intentions did.

God raged because the tower of babylon was clearly bigger than his wang. So it had to be destroyed!  Such jealousy!

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

Whoa! That's a good view of the tower of Babel. To think, there would be no French and Spanish to learn, if they hadn't built it.

AH YES, THE TOWER OF BABEL!!! I BELIEVE THIS IS IN IRAN. THE IRANIAN SNOTWADS WON'T LET US IN, CAUSE IT WOULD BE A VICTORY FOR CHRISTIANITY!! BUT THE BIBLE TELL ME THAT IT EXISTED,;SO THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!!! JESUS NEVER LIES AND NEVER WILL!!!

I thought that the tower of Babel was built in modern Iraq, "in the land of Shinar" (Genesis 11:2) between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers (Daniel chapter 1).
