A person who never stops talking. Never. A person who also is given this as a friendly nick name so that they don't actually catch on that they are talking to much (as if they could catch on). You usually find this sort of talker on the music festival scene.

Derives from: Babble on
When you meet that guy at a party that never stops speaking even when there is no one talking with him, you have just met Babylon.

Another name for the Roman Catholic Church. Bible Prophecy indicates that it will form a one-world government and execute ANYONE who doesn't do what they say. It is the Beast, it is the Great Whore and it MUST be opposed.
The Bible says that Babylon sits on seven hills (The seven hills of Rome), wears robes of purple and scarlet. (Two ancient colours of authority, showing that the Vatican is a political and religious authority.) There is also historical evidence that it cannot possibly be of God.
