Not to mention that Engish is not a latin language, but actually Germanic with some borrowed latin words.
You speak Edenic/Hebrew, all mingled up. It is the mother tongue, and only from it do all etymons come, as the science of language was given only in those root, true, etymons.

English got all mingled with Latin through the French in the middle ages -everyone who takes Latin in school learns that! -Wait! They don't teach Latin anymore, do they, in general?, Well, nearly half of all English words come from Latin, through the French.
And Germanic is not itself one of the original seventy languages branched off from Edenic at Bab-el, but is a mixture of some of the leaves on the branches.

I admit that I did not wade through all 4 pages, so I apologize in advance if someone already posted this.
The human ability to speak is genetic. Scientists Identify a Language Gene

Other hominids may have had the same ability. Neandertals Had Same "Language Gene" as Modern Humans

Here is an interesting study on what happens when that gene is inserted into another species (in this case a mouse) http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/29/science/29mouse.html

No it isn't. There is an entire root of languages not related to Latin. All of the tonal languages such as Chinese (and all of it's many variants) and Japanese, and the island languages of the Pacific. None of these are based on Latin, and many existed *before* Latin.

Why are you riding a bicycle? The bible doesn't mention them so they don't exist. Also, I don't "cross swords" with someone as completely unarmed with logic and facts as you are. Sorry.

No, I'm pretty sure I speak English. They might speak "edenic" in the crystal palace on the sun but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't understand it. In fact, it would probably sound something like really loud and grating burning toast.

In an effort “make the problem go away,” some evolutionists have chosen not to even address the problem.


source:

The Origin of Language and Communication


and yet you continue to deny God or a supreme being or ID. have fun.

so evolution of life is soo complex it does not even know how language began. genius.
Yet another creationist who thinks that he/she can claim knowledge from no knowledge

First:
The theory of evolution explains the change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms through successive generations.
How is not knowing when, and what natural selection (environmental pressure) caused the genes capable of giving us the ability to talk is NOT a hurdle for the theory of evolution.
I'll give you an example of an hurdle for the theory of evolution - finding every species known dating back to the exact same time. Finding this, would absolutely destroy the theory of evolution. But somehow I don't think that will happen.

Second:
The problem with claiming knowledge from no knowledge.
The next time we have an unsolved murder, we can blame it on you. Because by your logic, not knowing what happen means I know you committed the crime. Because this is the nature of claiming knowledge from no knowledge.
Do you see the problem with this kind of thinking?

Is it really? Then how do explain languages that were in existence before Hebrew developed?
