Many Languages.

“As far as the great proliferation of different languages among men is concerned, the biblical account is the only satisfactory explanation. If all men came from one ancestral population, as most evolutionary anthropologists believe today, they originally all spoke the same language. As long as they lived together, or continued to communicate with one another, it would have been impossible for the wide differences in human languages to have evolved. Therefore, if anthropologists insist on an evolutionary explanation for the different languages, then they must likewise postulate extremely long periods of isolation and inbreeding for the different tribes, practically as long as the history of man himself. This in turn means that each of the major language groups must be identical with a major racial group. Therefore, each “race” must have had a long evolutionary history, and it is natural to assume that some races have evolved more than others…

“On the other hand, it does seem obvious that all the different nations, tribes, and languages among men do have a common origin in the not-too-distant past. People of all nations are all freely interfertile and of essentially equal intelligence and potential educability. Even the ‘aborigines’ of Australia are quite capable of acquiring Ph.D. degrees, and some have done so. Even though their languages are widely different from each other, all can be analyzed in terms of the science of linguistics, and all can be learned by men of other languages, thus demonstrating an original common nature and origin. There is really only one kind of man —namely mankind! In actuality there is only one race among men—the human race. The source of the dif- ferent languages cannot be explained in terms of evolution, though the various dialects and similar lan- guages within the basic groups are no doubt attributable to gradual diversification from a common source tongue. But the major groups are so fundamentally different from each other as to defy explanation in any naturalistic framework. Only the Bible provides an adequate explanation.” Henry M. Morris

Genesis 11:9 Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

One Response to Many Languages.

  1. Dan Harris says:

    There was a DVD recently distributed named Evolution Vrs God. 🙂 In this extremely important DVD interviews of true experts in evolution are interviewed. In one the Professor is frustrated and explains that to understand evolution you have to have an imagination. She continues and rather politely implies ‘Ray’ has no imagination. i love this for two reasons.
    1. M.C. Escher Artist – earned his claim to fame in optical illusions. Simply draw, or paint something that is a contradiction to what we know to be fact of the world. To draw these pictures and pairings you must have an imagination to draw them (known as his impossible constructions) These optical illusions are impossible in reality – however, can be drawn out. “I both have an imagination and can tell when it is impossible.” Quoting D.J. Harris philosopher, PdF folScripture.
    2. Genesis 11:6,7. (6) The Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be [e]impossible for them. (7) Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another’s speech.”
    Genesis 6:5 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
    Proverbs 6:18 “An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief’.
    The only conclusion is that man will imagine anything that will be against God. Man doesn’t want to ‘report’ to anyone – just do what is right in his own mind. Therefore – If i can imagine anything doesn’t mean it is real (the impossible crate) and if I say it is, i am a liar, and endeavoring to deceive people.
