Quote# 13146

[From where did the different races come?]

This reminds me of the question; where did all the languages come from? Years ago, the U.S. government invested millions of dollars to discover "where all languages came from". After millions of dollars, and a ton of research, the scientific study concluded that all languages originated in Babylon.

Of course, all languages did come from Babylon. I could have saved the U.S. government millions of dollars: all the "scientists" needed to do was crack open a Bible to Genesis to know this!

Where did all races originate? From the decendants of Noah; should we pump millions of dollars into a "scientific study" to prove that all mankind originated from the mountains of Ararat?

All the languages did not \"originate\" in babylon as in they suddenly existed. Even if it is true that they came from babylon, they just started out as one language and \"evolved\" with little changes over time in different isolated areas to what we have now.

No, we've had one already. Mankind did not originate in the mountains of Ararat. It was Africa, the cradle of mankind.

It would be more accurate to say that the Indo-European class of languages, a large group indeed, did originate in Babylon.

African languages, Asian languages (such as Chinese and separated from Indian languages), Native American languages.... nope. Not related and not originated in Babylon.

Try again... or rather, please don't.

I don't think there is anything much more galling than someone showing off his ignorance while calling it superior knowledge and wisdom. JoeSaebi gives a textbook example of that phenomenon here.

It may be \"more accurate,\" but it's probably wrong...

You know, 44% of all statistics are made up on the spot. And so are 44% of all uncited government studies.

I wonder if he just made that up himself or was told this by some nutty pastor.

Liar. Ask anyone who has an education and you'll find that language changes over time. If two peoples are seperated geographically and have no means of communication both will develop an entirely new language in little time.

Suck it, bitch.

Babylon? Bollocks. Even the Indo-European language family didn't come from Mesopotamia - the steppes of south Russia is more likely. The ancient Babylonians spoke a Semitic language - although Hittite was an IE langauage.

A little venture into logic: different geological locations have varied climate, landmarks and wildlife that are not found in other geographical areas. Let's take Australia... many creatures reside there that can be natively found nowhere else on Earth. Thus, the first occupants of Australia had to create new words to describe these creatures. Their language adapted to their environment. Obviously someone who had never seen a wallabe would not have a word for the small hoppy marsupial. The fact is, back when languages were formed, colonies of mankind were isolated from one another, and they made their own language to describe the environment they were surrounded by.

As for this supposed study, I've never heard of it. But that's probably because the liberals keep it under wraps, I guess.

No, from the decendents of mitochondrial Eve and y-chromosome Adam.

Horse hockey! I don't believe there was such a study, certainly not with any result similar to the one you stated. Quit making stuff up.

David D.G. -- Exactly. I just hate it when the utterly ignorant take it upon themselves to educate the rest of us.

So all of noah's kids became Swahili, Korean, Aborigines, Pygmies, Vikings, and eskimos among others? So you're saying they evolved into different races? Hmmm.

And let me get this straight, all languages spontaneously erupted out of the Babylon tower workers (because god was scared that men who still believed the earth was flat were going to build a tower that reached heaven Heh-heh) and each language was maintained until everyone had migrated half way around the world so that Polynesians had a language different from Brazilians? Well isn't it a strange coincidence that similar and related languages ended up close to each other spoken by people who are of similar races?

You know you're insane, right?

You fool. You poor, poor fool. Do you seriously believe that every language just sprang up into existence in someone in Babylon? What about English?

I'm sure it was India.

Explain Finnish, Hungarian, and Basque, please.

And the irritating tendancy of words in English to sound alike but be spelled differently - i.e. their, there, and they're; it's and its, etc.

\"I could have saved the U.S. government millions of dollars: all the \"scientists\" needed to do was crack open a Bible to Genesis to know this!\"

I think my Sunday School teacher made this same argument (though applying it to the question of human/earth/universe -- whichever -- origins) when I was in the ninth grade. Who needs evidence?
