Not A Good Idea Overall - For The Human Race
But the Lord also knew that their efforts would have placed His children (mankind) on a path that would have put them in direct opposition to Him, and so therefore, they would've been led on a path that would have eventually brought about their overall demise as a human race.

In the last article we'd explored the notion, when it came to Nimrod being the possible mastermind, behind the infamous tower that was known as the Tower of Babel. I'd pointed out, how the name Babel, initially meant: the gate of God. But after God had destroyed this so-called gateway to the heavens, the Lord changed the meaning of the name Babel, to mean: confusion.
We'd also tried to get some type of understanding when it came to, exactly what humanity was thinking, as they'd attempted to build this tower. We'd also tried to get an idea on why humanity would follow a person like Nimrod to begin with. And make no mistake, it was a foolish pursuit on humanity's behalf, when it came to trying to build this Tower of Babel.
However that may be, the Sacred Record revealed that the Lord would come down from His heavenly throne, and see for Himself, personally, what the human race was trying to do. And needless-to-say, the Lord was not happy with what He'd saw, for He knew that humanity was trying to create their own way into heaven, thinking they wouldn't have to go through Him. But the Lord would soon let Nimrod and his followers know, by trying to achieve some position of historical prestige, by trying to bring about their own eternal kingdom, was simply foolishness on their part.
Understand that God wasn't necessarily jealous of what humanity was trying to do, for He knew, they wouldn't be able to achieve, what they had sought out to do in the first place. But the Lord also knew, their efforts would have placed His children, on a path that would have put them in direct opposition to Him. And so therefore, they would've been led on a path that would have eventually, brought about their overall demise as a human race.
You see, the Lord knew that this would be a catastrophe for humanity as a whole, if it were to unite as being one. And another reason for this, deals with the possibility that if the human race had operated as one, and if they were able to be deceived by one, or a small group of powerful influential individuals, who did not fear God, then its very well possible, this person, or group of individuals, could end up leading the entire human race in the wrong direction, and away from God. Therefore, causing everyone to pay a very costly price.
Keep in mind, this wicked task could be achieved by one unique, powerful and charismatic individual, or group of people. And actually, it was already happening with Nimrod, just like it had already happened, with the sons of God, and the daughters of men. Remember when all of mankind had eventually became wicked, and corrupt, as they were being lead away from God. We'd came across this, back when we had journeyed through the account that dealt with the sons of God and the daughters of men.
Remember when God had to send the Great Flood of Judgement, in order to right the wrong that had been caused by the human race :
"There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." - Genesis 6:4,5

Mankind Making the Same Mistake with Nimrod
Notice how humanity is making the same mistake with Nimrod. For he was a person that was so determined to defy, and be in complete opposition to the Almighty God. For he was a person who had developed, some type of personal vendetta against the Lord. I wonder if this vendetta had anything to do, with God placing a curse on the household of his forefathers, therefore placing a curse on his household as well. Interesting to say the least.
And actually, we had seen the same thing happen to Cain's household, after the Lord had placed a curse on him as well. As a matter of fact, it was Cain's daughters that ended up leading the sons of God, away from the Lord in the first place. And of course, this was an achievement that had eventually led them, to their demise as a human race, after God had sent the Great Flood to correct the wrong, they had done.
And now we see these similar events happening all over again, through the efforts of Nimrod and his deceived loyal followers. Now personally, I hope you're able to see, how this can be very problematic for humanity as an whole? I hope you also understand that God loves us too much, to have allowed such a movement to be successful; a movement that would have eventually, led His children on a path to destruction, on a path to eternal death.

How Big Was The Tower of Babel
Nevertheless, I would like to use this moment, to point out a few more interesting things, when it comes to this tower. Through research and discovery of the past, it has been found that this Tower of Babel, was a building that was dedicated to the theory of astrology. This is basically a secular worship that, has a primary focus that deals with trying to find the divination, while trying to predict future events, from within the framework of outer-space, planets, stars and the starry heavens overall.
However, it has also been discovered from within the Babylon ruins; the Tower of Babel was a building that had stood between 150 - 155 feet high, with a base that was between 400 - 425 feet wide. Also know that this particular building, was made up of dried bricks, while it was divided into seven different sections. Each section had signs of the Zodiac placed on them, which leads me to believe, each section was dedicated to certain known planets at the time.

Mankind Was Simply On The Wrong Path
This is why it's also presumed, this is another reason why God had destroyed this massive tower, while in the process, confusing the overall language of humanity in the process. Being that this tower, was in direct opposition to the Almighty God. Make no mistake, the human race had once again, been deceived by one person, or a small group of individuals, when it came to them allowing themselves to be lead away from their Creator, the one and only Most High God.
Now humanity pursued this path, with Nimrod, vigorously. For they had lost sight, when it came to following the ways of the Lord. So again, this is why God had destroyed this tower, and He'd done it, in order to save humanity from itself.
