Incoherent, adj. Lacking internal consistency; muddled and confused.
An account is said to be incoherent if no sane person could hope to
make sense of it. Incoherence dates back to the result of the attempt
to build the Tower of Babel, as recorded in the book of Genesis:

And they said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks, and burn
them thoroughly." And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for
mortar. Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a
tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for
ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of
the whole earth."

The Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which mortals had
built. And the Lord said, "Look, they are one people, and they have
all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will
do; nothing that they propose will be impossible for them. Come,
let us go down, and confuse their language there, so that they will
not understand one another's speech."

And there was Kuhn.

-The New Revised Nonstandard Version
