And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
- Gen. 10:10 (KJV)
Nimrod set up his tyrannical kingdom in modern-day Iraq. Babel is known as the ancient capital of Babylon. Babylon is now known as Iraq. The land of Shinar is also an ancient name of Iraq. If the Bible was fake, then these locations wouldn't exist. However, archaeological discoveries and historical documentation proves otherwise.
