In country after country ??Gen.11:3-Surely they could not be taller than the tallest buildings that exist on earth today,and dont forget the astronoughts of various nationalities circling the globe every 90 minutesSurely they surpass the builders of the tower of babel
Have you considered that it was torn down? Take a look at post Rome, back then when Rome fell and the people fell into disparage, people scraped what they could in order to survive, that included picking apart buildings to build homes. Not only that, other armies raided various Roman occupied territories and looted what they could carry. Plus anything that once stood would have fallen apart due to age and due to the lack of upkeep to keep it together.
How about the second city of Babylon? After it fell to the Persian army, the whole city was picked apart over time. Saddam Hussien then began to rebuild it sometime in the 80s, many of it's bricks survived from time with inscriptions still embedded into it which reads in Arabic, "I am Nebuchadnezzar, the King of the World", Saddam copied that idea and had many bricks made to also include his name with the exact same sentence on the walls.
Although construction has stopped when Iraq got invaded and Saddam hanged. Biblical prophecy speaks of a 3rd city of Babylon, the city in current form is halfway done. Eventually someone else will pick up the slack and finish this project that Saddam had started.
There's many articles regarding the old city, Google would be your best friend.
