Welcome to the new-and-improved KingDavid8.com! I finally have all of the contents from my old site transferred here, so everything should be working properly. Please let me know if you find any "dead links". My pages also have boxes where readers can leave comments and criticisms, so don't be shy.
This website is mostly aimed at providing arguments and evidence for the non-Christian, the Christian who may be struggling with what he or she believes, or those Christians who are interested in reaching out to others.
My opinions may contradict what other Christians believe, but many of my arguments are also based on arguments given by a variety of Christian sources. I especially owe a debt of gratitude to the writings of Glenn Miller, J.P. Holding, Paul Maier, Grant R. Jeffrey, Lee Strobel, and Gerald Schroeder.
Please feel free to borrow ideas or arguments of mine (since many of them were not mine to begin with). I do ask that if you quote from my site directly, to please credit me.
Was There One Language, Or Many, Before The Tower Of Babel?
Genesis 10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations. (KJV)
Genesis 11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. (KJV)
If you read all of Genesis 10 (a genealogy of the descendents of Noah), the answer to this apparent dilemma is right there. It says: "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazar-maveth, and Jerah," (Genesis 10:25-26) There are people included in these genealogies who lived after the Earth was divided by the Tower of Babel. This is why these passages make mention of certain people having different languages, even though these passages are included before the mention of the Tower of Babel. Not a contradiction.
