The Tower of Babel
11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.
3 They said to each other, Come, lets make bricks and bake them thoroughly. They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.
5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.
English has already become the "common" language of the planet. Knowledge has been increased 100 fold over the last century and half. We are now out of the "Roman Age". Take a man from 1880 and put him into 200 AD and he would be able to adapt quite easily, same with a man from 200 AD put into 1880 AD. Take both of those men and place them into 2012 AD and they would have a very difficult time.
