Babel mythology

SCRIPTURE: “Jared came forth with his brother and their families, with some others and their families, from the great tower, at the time the Lord confounded the language of the people, and swore in his wrath that they should be scattered upon all the face of the earth; and according to the word of the Lord the people were scattered. And the brother of Jared being a large and mighty man, and a man highly favored of the Lord, Jared, his brother, said unto him: Cry unto the Lord, that he will not confound us that we may not understand our words.” -Ether 1:33-34. [source]

COMMENTARY: Most Christians, when presented with scientific evidence proving that the Tower of Babel story could not possibly have happened, can simply say that the story was allegorical. Not so with Mormons, whose holy scriptures claim the story actually happened. They have to either reject the scientific evidence or their holy scriptures. And guess which one they choose to reject? Yep. Science. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
