This is the Dumbest Beck Conspiracy Theory Yet.

I guess Beck is starting to run out of Soros-related material.

Putting aside the fact that the "Tower of Babel" probably never existed, putting aside the fact that if it did exist, there is certainly no record of what it might have looked like, what would be the point of replicating the Tower of Babel? How would this benefit the nefarious villains of the EU? If you're going to posit a wild conspiracy theory, you at least have to put in a little effort into coming up with a goal for the conspirators. How would building a replica of the Biblical tower of Babel help them take over the world or amass large sums of money, or whatever their ends are? Geezus, Beck, you're not even trying anymore!

On a side note, the Tower of Babel story is one of the stranger stories to make it into the Canon. A bunch of people start building a tower. I don't really know what the point was of building a tower, what purpose a huge tower would have served a primitive nomadic hunter-gatherer society, but for whatever reason they start building.

Now somehow God, the all-knowing, all-seeing deity, doesn't really know what they are up to, so he has to come down from his cloud to have a look-see.

Gen. 11:5 - But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. 

And when he sees what they are building, he apparently feels a little intimidated.

Gen. 11:6 - 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.”

 Of course, if he really wanted to put a stop to all this tower-building activity, I could think of a simpler solution: 
That'd be the last tower those punks ever built!

That was truly hysterical. What in the holy fuck is he babbling about? And since when doesn he have a token Jew to sit in and watch him play with chalk? UNREAL.

There is so much comedy in religion.

If I didn't know better, I'd think that the rabbi was Graham Chapman in disguise.
