Someone said let's not speak English 'cause it sucks.
Speak only in conlangs and turn it into a REAL Babel.

Umm yeah but in Babel they all spoke the SAME
language, and I doubt anyone would agree on an auxlang
for conlang because all the existing projects suck.
I'd be all for French but my grasp of the language is
limited, and it possesses many of the same spelling
problems as English

It would be cool if we could have a very very very
easy auxlang here- it would attract a very diverse

The interesting thing about Babel is that it might be
true. The previous chapter talks of the sons of the
sons of the sons of Noah, people with names like Assyr
and Mede and Akkad and Caanan and Cush. Obviously this
is a historical documentation of the tribes of the
middle East. So perhaps there was a time when all
tribes were in harmony, and maybe even spoke the same
language, and then split and were wrenched into war.
It would be interested if we could find out if there
was really an IAL in the MIddle East and what it was
