The broken tie that binds
Ross, H. 1996.  Facts and Faith 10(3):6. CELD ID 6568

Abstract
According to Genesis, the human race both before and after the Flood ignored God's direct command to spread out and fill the earth.1, 2 Despite God's warnings about the seriousness of disobedience, several generations of post-Flood people refused to budge from the Mesopotamian flood plain. To get the people moving, God had to destroy the civilization of Babel. He brought such a severe disruption of communication that people finally scattered themselves over the six habitable continents.
