    The people of the world decide to build a single massive city in direct opposition to God's command to go out into the world and multiply. Not only that, the people of the city decide to build a massive tower to reach the heavens so they could be like gods like God himself. In the face of such arrogance and disobedience, God confuses their language. The city is abandoned, and the tower remains unfinished.
