Although all men, from the Aborigines of Australia, to the scientists working at the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, have much in common, both on a genetic as well as on an emotional level, there is much that divides the various cultures and subdivisions of man, i.e. linguistically, religiously, intellectually, as well as a genetically. Although we share a common ancestry, after all, we are all descendants of Noah and his sons, nonetheless, mankind has undergone marked changes to produce the diversity that we have at present. On a certain level this is akin to the changes that the descendants of those animals that survived the Flood in the Taiva, the ark, with Noah, underwent, as was pointed out in a previous lecture. Even though some of human diversity can be traced to the migrations and environmental factors that occurred in the aftermath of the Tower of Babel, the Migdal Bovel, most are probably due to the basic divisions of the family of man. The first part of this lecture traces today’s various racial and linguistic groups to the original families that branched out after the Mabul. The second part traces the spiritual and cultural destiny of these various groups and the historic incident that shaped that destiny. The third part is devoted to an understanding of the events associated with the building of the Tower of Babel, the Migdal Bavel, and its effect on both mankind and the world.
