I was reading about Skyscrapers. And someone mentioned the Tower of Babel to be OLDEST skyscraper, misallocation of resources after a boom. According to Wikipedia , the tower's height amounted to 8149 feet 6 inches. Although the Tower of Bible never existed, it was created to reach Heaven and was a symbol of man's pride. Does anyone have any idea about the Tower of Babel? PS: I have not read the complete Wikipedia information. Correct me if I am wrong.
