Calculating above new midpoint:

2733 43.7465 % + 6850 years, 6850+2733=9583 BC

2733+2017=4750 years, after which we have 56.293 % left.

56.293 % * 43.7465 % = 24.626217245 %, dated to 11600 years ago, or 9583 BC.

**Is 2733 BC a good Biblical date for Tower of Babel?**

Jews have this:

2161 BC Flood, 1765 BC Dispersion after Babel.

2161

1765

0396 Babel 396 after Flood.

Old Earth has this:

http://www.oldearth.org/biblicaldating.htm

Eber is 34 when Pelag is born, 101

Pelag is 30 when Reu is born, 131

Pelag lived to be 209, 310

"Using this chart, the Flood must have happened a minimum of 101 years prior to the Tower of Babel. If the split at the Tower was caused by God near the time of Pelag’s birth, this would lend support to his father, Eber, naming him after this event. However, we can’t be certain of this. The only thing we know with any degree of certainty is that it happened during Peleg’s lifetime. Therefore, it could have happened as much as 310 years after the flood. Thus we have a range for the Flood of 101 to 310 years prior to the Tower of Babel. It is interesting to note that since Noah lived 350 years after the flood, he was alive when the Tower of Babel occurred."

Their next sentence is of course totally off:

"Adding this to our minimum age of 30,000 to 45,000 years, and we come up with a range of 30,101 to 45,310 years ago for Noah's Flood."

There is no such minimum age after the Babel event, the "mutation clock" or "DNA clock" is off.

But they say Dispersion occurred while Peleg was alive. On Masoretic and KJV (also I think Vulgate and Douay Rheims) that is 101-310 after Flood.

A LXX version, but not the text of St Jerome, has:

Medium 2520 BC.

Here a page gives 2197 BC for ToB, but:

http://timeline.biblehistory.com/event/tower-of-babel-division-of-earth

same site

http://timeline.biblehistory.com/period/noah-and-the-flood

says Noah was born 2898 BC. This places Flood in 2298 BC, and 2197 BC as 101 after Flood - already covered, the theory Peleg was born 101 after Flood (anti-LXX), and named after an occurring event about Babel, rather than for instance about Noah's righteous and human division of men.

It is also possible that Peleg's division of the Earth was earlier than Tower of Babel:

https://biblescienceguy.wordpress.com/2013/04/03/4-tower-of-babel-when/

"Archbisop Ussher (1581–1656) proposed that Peleg’s Division was Noah’s division of the earth among his grandchildren in an effort to disperse them as God had commanded. However, they all subsequently moved to Shinar, where they resisted dispersion by building the city and tower of Babel. This is a plausible understanding of Peleg’s Division, but less likely in my opinion. Noah’s presumed attempt to divide the land among his descendants does not seem a significant enough event to warrant naming a child to commemorate it. Why would Eber want to name a son to commemorate a dispersal command that he resisted?"

Well, for one, Eber probably was not resisting it, Hebrews were avoiding to paticipate in Tower of Babel, that is why they kept their language. He can have named his son as a reminder to the rest they were doing wrong.

So, Peleg may even be before Tower of Babel.

This is especially encouraging for those who would not identify Tower of Babel with Göbekli Tepe.

All of this should be discouraging to those who on the one hand think most dated dinosaur fossils, and carbon and diamonds, are from Flood, but on the other hand think that Tower of Babel was in Peleg's day and also think it's sth as recent as the Ziggurat of Ur, as per Woolley's identification.

While Ussher says Peleg was named for other thing than the division at Babel, however that is placed not far after the birth of Peleg :

Here:

http://nwcreation.net/towerofbabel.html

The approximate date of its building Tammuz 1762 AM) is given by James Ussher, who in The Annals of the World cites Manetho's Book of Sothis, as translated by Georgius Syncellus, as stating that the Babel incident took place five years following the birth year of Peleg.

I found Syncellus.

https://ia801406.us.archive.org/1/items/chronographia01syncgoog/chronographia01syncgoog.pdf

[ for other formats : https://archive.org/details/chronographia01syncgoog ]

In his brevior computus (a German translated his Greek into Latin, good for me, in 1829, Bonn, I think) has Tower of Babel (Opificium Turris Babylon) at Anno Mundi 2736, after Arphaxad died in Anno Mundi 2733. But the confusion 40 years later. 2776.

2423 BC if we take 5199-2776. But 5508-2776=2732.

So, since Syncellus is giving the 5508 date of Birth of Christ, I think, this leaves us asking whether the discrepancy is before or after ToB. If after, Dispersion of Tongues was 2423 BC. If however before, between Flood and ToB, the BC dates are the same whether we use the 5508 or the 5199 chronology.

And so, ToB would either chronology be 2732 = my mid point 2733, which is in part of building of Göbekli Tepe.

The problem is, GT would be abandoned quickly after the Dispersion. So, 2733 BC should be the 8600 BC date. Not 9600 BC.

Which gives us:

49.279 % / 43.7465 % = 1.1264672602379619

- I, Flood, 2957 BC
- 3.461 % => 1.1264672602379619*3.461 % = 3.8987 %

- Mid pt.2733 BC

- Now, here is another recalculation
- 100-49.279 = 50.721 %
- 100-43.7465 = 56.2535 %

50.721 % / 56.2535 % = 0.9016505639649089

BUT this cannot be applied all the way to Mid pt. 1928 BC.

- There, the ratio must be 1:
- 100-83.689= 16.311 %
- 100-83.689= 16.311 %
- 16.311/16.311=1

This is 18 steps (subdividing now) ahead of Mid pt.2733 BC.
