"Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because The Lord did there confound the language of all the earth"
As would be obvious, the family of humanity ("man" is an abbreviation for humanity) began with a single language. The Lord also blessed man with intelligence, but it was wasted, almost from the very beginning, on an unintelligent effort to defy the Creator.
"And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
The Lord responded to man's defiance in a way that was appropriate, not merely to prevent them from destroying themselves with their own foolishness, but also as a sign of their infantilism - by turning their language into "baby talk." From that came today's "babble" of languages - and religions.
"And The Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
