Since Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge and were given the sense of right and wrong, did we get the potential of becoming as smart as God or was the statement made by the serpent (Satan) that they would become Gods themselves another lie? If it is a lie, than why did God split man during the build of Babel tower. During this time all men had the same language, same religion, and same morals in which case there was nothing for them to fight over, argue over, or not do. Did God scatter them because they could build their way to heaven because they were smart enough collectively? Did God fear immortal man in heaven? Or did god stop man for another reason. Please answer because this question has been bobbing in my mind for a while.
