Tonal Chinese Language Solid Proof of Intelligent Design & Historicity of Tower of Babel

Darwinists believe that language evolves, and to a certain extent it did and still does. Look at the English language: It is a conglomerate vocabulary from many languages, acquired from Brit, Latin, French, Danish, Saxon, Celtic, Gaelic, even Indian (juggernaut!) and Chinese (chow, kow tow, ping pong), and many others. Also, of course, every year the English dictionary has to be appended with all the new words that are invented or adopted by the English speakers that year. But how did it ever start! Or evolve?

languagesChinese, Vietnamese and Thai, are tonal languages. That means that one word or sound can have as many meanings as there are tones in that Chinese dialect. For example ‘Tai Yu’ or the Fu-Jian dialect spoken in Taiwan and Fujian, has 8-9 tones. So depending if there exist that many actual words, a sound could potentially have 8-9 meanings as well.  Now imagine that this came about through evolution.

Impossible!

Let’s imagine that English would suddenly become a tonal language.  Imagine that one English tyrant like Henry the Eight, would suddenly introduce 4 tones like Mandarin into the language and order the English people to start using it, “or else!” Let’s take the word ‘dog’ as example.

And a decree went forth from King Henry, ordering the British, “From now on the word DOG in a questioning tone (3rd tone) means “eat”! Dog in a commanding tone (4th) means the actual “DOG” animal, in a surprised mono-tone (2nd) it means “ham”, and in a high mono-tone (1st) it means “cheese!” So from now on, if you want to say “The dog eats ham and cheese.” You will have to say: “The Dog4 dog3 dog2 and dog1.”

Thus King Henry proceeded to decree “tonalisation” for the entire English vocabulary:
“House” from now on has to be spoken in a commanding 4th tone!
“Car” only has a rising questioning 3rd tone.
“Fun” will only be said in a commanding or affirmative 4th tone! And so on.
New dictionary copies with all new tonal rules are available at reasonable price at the Royal Language Institute. Anyone breaking these new language rules will be punished with a strict jail sentence of at least five years.”

That last incentive will be fully necessary, as no Englishman in his right mind would ever voluntarily consent to such nonsense. Henry can forget his entire lingual overhaul scheme of the English language. Of course such a scheme would never work, everyone would rot in jail, and the English will still not have learned to memorise a new tonal English.

But now think about it. How in the holy Heavens did the Thais, Vietnamese, and the several Chinese ethnic groups ever begin to use tones in their languages! It’s like teaching birds to fly in formation. They either do so perfectly, or they won’t. You cannot teach them to. Impossible!

The only evolutionary rationalisation would sound something like this:     (Nota Bene: The following text was made up!)

Evolutionary Development of the Bi-Primate Sino Tonal Language Group. A peer-reviewed research paper by Smutz, Fink, and Fonebone, et al.

“The Sino-primate, tonal language group comprising Chinese, Thai, and Vietnamese, including smaller splinter ethnic sub-groups like the Miao language, appears to have developed in total geographical isolation from the Western African primates’ group that has no tonal identification.

The earliest members of the Sino “Peking Man” language group originally appear to have spoken their primal oral utterances concerning denominations of the by them recognised phenomena in two main multi-tonal language groups; E.g. the ‘South Peking Man 9 tones’ group, comprising Cantonese, Fu Jian, and Vietnamese, and the ‘West Peking 4 tones Group’ of Thai, Laotian, Kun Ming and Si Chuan and all Northern Han dialects.

It appears from ‘primal scream’ research among the Hmong tribes in the Vietnamese heartland by Prof Dr. Fonebone et al, that certain natural phenomena were initially grouped along the collective use of the commanding 4th tone! That specific tone, according to Dr. Fonebone,  comprises expressions of pain, discomfort, spoken commands, and the primary recognition of phenomena (like for example in the phrase “Hey4 you4! There you are4 again!” when seeing someone after “long time no see!”

Dr. Fonebone has systematically discovered few discrepancies in this tonal behaviour among the Miao from prehistoric times until a few hundred years ago, and therefore it can be safely concluded that from early Pleistocene times the 4th tone vocabulary group has remained unchanged. This was confirmed by fossil finds in the Pleistocene riverbeds of upper Vietnam of human skulls, where the tonal function of the brain located in the left lobe was obviously more pronounced in size than the right lobe.

Research is still ongoing. [End of academic text]

Funny?
Hardly!
This is the regular kind of high-headed browbeating applied already for many decades in Western academia, to impress and blow away any natural horse sense of the “ignorant” masses by use of verbose intellectual hot air, preferably enhanced by Latin and Greek!

The only sane alternative to such academic voodoo, is that these languages must have indeed been miraculously designed and instantly introduced. And not just the tonal languages then, but consequently all other languages as well, for why should they be an exception.

And this is exactly what happened actually, around 2.100 BC in the Middle Eastern capital of Babel, when all earthlings still spoke only one language until they were evilly inspired to built a high tower to reach Heaven by piling up bricks, and to climb up to be gods to “make a name for themselves”

Here is how the Bible relates what happened at the Tower of Babel, in the first book of Genesis chapter 11:

1     And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2     And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
3     And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
4     And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5     And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built.
6     And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
7     Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
8     So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9     Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

If language evolved, the earliest languages should be the simplest. But language studies show that the more ancient the language (for example: Latin, 200 B.C.; Greek, 800 B.C.; Linear B, 1200 B.C.; and Vedic Sanskrit, 1500 B.C.), the more complex it is with respect to syntax, case, gender, mood, voice, tense, verb form, and inflection. Most linguists reject the idea that simple languages evolve into complex languages. The best evidence shows that languages devolve; that is, they become simpler instead of more complex. Like we kind of like notice in like… contemporary English or like American! You know what I mean?

If humans evolved, then so did language. All available evidence indicates that language did not evolve, so humans probably did not evolve either.

And if that is not enough proof, consider the Miao people in Southern China and South East Asia. The ‘Miao Zu’ traditions are very precise, as compared with those of many primitive peoples, because they are not just handed down in metrical form, but, also, they are in couplets, in which the same or similar meaning is expressed in different wording, so that the second sentence acts as a definition of the first, where it might otherwise not be clear.

The following is the English translation of one of their songs they have sung for thousands of years at every social gathering, about the Confusion of Languages at Babel and two of the sons of Noah, Ham and Shem and their offspring.

Babel

Lo-han then begat Cusah and Mesay.
Lo-shen begat Elan and Nga-shur.
Their offspring begotten became tribes and peoples;
Their descendants established encampments and cities.
Their singing was all with the same tunes and music;
Their speaking was all with the same words and language.
Then they said let us build us a very big city;
Let us raise unto heaven a very high tower.
This was wrong, but they reached this decision;
Not right, but they rashly persisted.
God struck at them then, changed their language and accent.
Descending in wrath, He confused tones and voices.
One’s speech to the others who hear him has no meaning;
He’s speaking in words, but they can’t understand him.
So the city they builded was never completed;
The tower they wrought has to stand thus unfinished.
In despair then they separate under all heaven,
They part from each other the globe to encircle.
They arrive at six corners and speak the six languages.

Pretty amazing, no? “Lo-Han then begat Cusah and Mesay. Lo-Shen begat Elan and Nga-shur.”
In English in the Book of Genesis, the children of Lo-Han or Ham are called Cush, and Mizraim, and of Lo Shen or Shem, Elam and Asshur! These are indeed the historically recorded patriarchs of the actual nations Cush or Ethiopia, Egypt or Mizraim, Elam of the Elamites in Iran, and Asshur the patriarch of Assyria or Syria.

But of course politically correct Darwinist mainstream pop-historians refute their patriarch Noah as a “myth!” That’s how they control your thinking! Think about that for a while!

languages

PICTURE ABOVE: Language Divergence. Languages are related, as are genes. One of thousands of examples is the word for “from, of.” It exists in French (de), Italian (di), Holl (der), German (der, dessen) Spanish (de), Portuguese (de), and Romanian (de). [And even in Chinese! (de) is proprietary!] So all these languages, now spoken generally in southwestern Europe, are twigs on a tree branch called the Romance languages (Romance referring to Rome). This branch joins a larger branch that includes all languages derived primarily from Latin. They merge with other large branches, such as the Germanic branch that includes English, into a family called the Indo-European languages. When these and other languages are traced back in time, they appear to converge near Mount Ararat! Strange that they should have begun at the landing site of Noah’s Ark. Linguists admit that they do not understand the origin of languages, only how languages spread.

Now How Would God Do That?

You can see that these things still happen today. This lady after a dental operation changed her accent entirely. She had oral surgery ended up losing not only her teeth, but her American accent as well. Karen Butler, 56, sounds like she comes from somewhere in Scandinavia or possibly South Africa with a bit of Irish thrown in here and there. However, prior to her surgery in 2009, she had a full-blown American accent. Butler’s teeth were replaced with dentures, but her accent never came back. Now, when people meet Butler for the first time, they typically ask the same question, she told the Today show.

“’Where are you from. Where did you get that accent?’” Butler said. “’You tell them ‘I got it from here.’”

“’From here? Oregon?’ They think I say Ireland, but I’m saying Oregon.”

How can that be?

Well, the first eleven apostles stood up after they received the Holy Ghost and were suddenly able to speak in many other languages of surrounding nations to preach the Gospel to the Jews who lived in those nations and were on a visit to Jerusalem for the Festival of Pentecost. The Apostles had never learned those languages.

Of course the “scientists” have all the answers. “It is just another case of foreign accent syndrome!” Stick a label on the phenomena… and… abracadabra.. there is “the explanation!”

It “explains” the new word choice, the Irish accent is just a result of the neurons acting up, and the new syntax and sentence structure is just a result of Irish cell memories of the woman that are genetically transported from he great great great grandfather’s genes. Yeah right!

You know what I believe? That it is is a spiritual thing. Somehow she inherited an Irish spirit helper of ministering spirit that influences her speech facilities. No, not possession. The woman’s personality is unchanged obviously. But “scientists” don’t believe in spirits nor in spiritual influences, and so it is “foreign language syndrome!” As if that explains anything? My little brother could have come up with that fancy term. Politically correct scientists! Bah!

Here is a woman that can suddenly speak foreign languages. Neural damage?!

Latest Update! Ha!

The Darwinians Have Explained it Now! — I kid you not! (They must have read my article and decided there had to also be a natural selection explanation for tonal languages to strengthen the Darwinian believers! Ha!)

Tonal languages require humidity! Public Release: 23-Jan-2015

Languages with a wide range of tone pitches have primarily developed in regions with high levels of humidity   Max-Planck-Gesellschaft

This news release is available in German.
The weather impacts not only upon our mood but also our voice. An international research team including scientists from the Max Planck Institutes for Psycholinguistics, Evolutionary Anthropology and Mathematics in the Sciences has analysed the influence of humidity on the evolution of languages. Their study has revealed that languages with a wide range of tone pitches are more prevalent in regions with high humidity levels. In contrast, languages with simpler tone pitches are mainly found in drier regions. This is explained by the fact that the vocal folds require a humid environment to produce the right tone.

The tone pitch is a key element of communication in all languages, but more so in some than others. German or English, for example, still remain comprehensible even if all words are intonated evenly by a robot. In Mandarin Chinese, however, the pitch tone can completely change the meaning of a word. “Ma” with a level pitch means “mother,” while “ma” with a falling then rising pitch would mean “horse”. “Only those who hit the tone pitch correctly can express themselves in tonal languages,” explains Seán G. Roberts, a scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen.
However, the climate can become a problem for the speakers of tonal languages, as the vocal folds in the larynx – commonly known as the voice box – suffer as a result. Even a temporary increase in humidity impacts upon the vocal folds: The humidity keeps the mucous membranes moist and makes them more elastic. It also changes the ion balance within the mucous membranes of the vocal folds. With good humidity, the vocal folds can oscillate sufficiently and produce the right tone.
The scientists therefore suspect that tonal languages are less common in dry regions as the wide range of tonal pitches is difficult to produce under these conditions and are more likely to result in misunderstanding. “Modern databases enable us to analyse the properties of thousands of languages. But this also brings problems because languages can also inherit their complex pitches from another language,” says Damián E. Blasi, who conducts research at the Max Planck Institutes for Mathematics in the Sciences and for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. In their study, the scientists have now shown that these effects can be disentangled from the effects of climate.
The researchers investigated the correlation between humidity and the significance of tone pitch in over 3,750 languages from different linguistic families. This indicates that tonal languages are significantly rarer in dry regions. In relatively dry Central Europe, no tonal languages have developed like those found in the Tropics, Subtropical Asia and Central Africa.
Climate apparently shapes the role of pitch tone in a language and therefore how information is exchanged. Even small effects may be amplified over the generations to produce a global pattern. The climate thus determines the development of languages. “If the UK had been a humid jungle, English may also have developed into a tonal language,” explains Roberts.
