Re: Linguistics - God's Perspective
What a wonderful report, Brother Bathfire. That puts a needlessly complex subject like linguistics into terms that even the simplest of us can understand. I do believe as Christians we need to advocate the Intelligent Design hypothesis of Language, where God purposely made people speak different languages so they can't understand each other. Secular schools and universities, on the other hand, push the laughable idea that languages somehow "evolved".
These evolutionists don't just apply their theories to lifeforms, but also to words! But, the so-called evolution of language is patently false. According to these people, English and Dot-head languages come from the same source: Sanskrit. But, a cursory glance at the different writing styles shows this is false. Furthermore they want to say that German and English are very, very closely related but if that were true, how come we can't understand Krauts? Wouldn't we be able to understand like 25% or at least 10% of what they say? No, it all sounds like moonspeak to me.
That is not to say that micro-evolution of languages has not happened. According to the chart, Eskimo is descended from Russian, and then Injun is further descended from Eskimo. These three ethnic groups (and languages) actually make a lot of sense because all three of them have much in common. They are violent savages who drink too much and live in cold environments. Your chart proves this in a way that secular linguistics cannot explain.
All and all, this was excellent research on your part and I pray that someday we can teach our kids in public schools the Truth about language, and not some half-cocked hare-brained "theories" coming from French beatniks who had too much absinthe.
