Where did language come from? From our supposed ape-ancestors? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Language requires some very special designs that are rare in nature and found together only in humans. First, human language requires vocal cords, which none of the apes have. The only animals with vocal tracts are birds, but no one is suggesting that we evolved from birds.
Language skills can be learned only by hearing language. So where did Adam first hear language? Scripture tells us that it was the Creator God Himself who regularly spoke with Adam. Language is not a collection of meaningless sounds to which we have assigned meanings. The meanings and sounds have come from God.
Therefore, language is not only for worldly purposes. We have also been given language to praise our God and Savior and to tell others who He is and what He has done!
