Since then, we made skyscrapers much taller than any tower of Babel, we got to the moon, and are even exploring outside the solar system with spaceships. I wonder if Christians opposed the space program on the grounds that God will curse us for the same reason he cursed those who made the Tower of Babel. It was before my time so I don't know...

My father tells me that when the space race began (and a dog but yet no
men) had gone to space an old lady in his church told him they never
would. Her argument was based on Babel and the verse where it says "He
has set their bounds and limitations".

Reg the rainbow. The bible does not say, nor does it (to me) imply, that
it was the first. It waschosen as a sign for that time.
