Online translation on the rise, changing lives

• AP
Google is now doing a record billion translations on any given day, as much text as you'd find in 1 million books for everything from understanding school lunch menus to gathering national security intelligence. It translates in 65 languages, from Afrikaans to Yiddish, and can be used on websites, with speech recognition and as an app on mobile phones even if there is no connection.

Back about 3,000 to 3,500 years ago, at the time of the fabled Tower of Babel, the people all spoke the same language. The thing that they DIDN'T do was revere and respect God, or even acknowledge Him. So, He messed up their language so that they couldn't understand each other. Their constructing of the Tower stopped because they couldn't work together any longer.

Here we are, using computers to bypass the language barrier. And we still don't revere and respect God. I wonder what He is going to do this time? It's different this time. Jesus is slated to return. Maybe that's what will happen. After all, we are much more populous, much more technically capable than the people of the Tower were. It should prove interesting.

One thing that might encourage people who are against God, is the thing He said at the time of the Tower, before the confounding of the language. He said words to this effect: "They are one people and have one language, and nothing will be withheld from them which they purpose to do. ... Come, let us go down and confound their speech."
