there are many reasons for this... alot has to do with the lack of natural resources in africa that were available in europe and other parts of the world at the time. as i said before there are many reasons, if you do a little research and look at the history of our and many other civilizations you will understand why...
anyway the indiginous people of the world are the ones who live as nature intended, they live of the land and respect the earth and nature.. not like us that destroy everything in our path...
and to the op... of course we would have had a master language, thats pretty obvious. if the theory of evoloution is to be believed, then early humans would have had to communicate with each other, before they started spreading across the planet.. this probably changed to dialects as they progressed further evolving into to completely separate languages as we moved futher away..edit on 16/4/11 by Misterlondon because: (no reason given)

Forget this whole "man came out of Africa,,we came from monkeys" BS disinformation
there is far more proof that man came out of the Subcontinent (India) - I'm not gonna hijack the thread with that topic tho .. so go google it.

Also, man may have spoken beyond 6000 years ago, but his language and his speech was primitive, not touching on subjects that transcended his immediate practical needs. And even than 'spiritual' ideas were represented through cave paintings and art, and through conventional language.
The developmet of language is not rooted in some primitive african lingua franca. Language is actually quite sophistiated, and before cuneiform of Sumer we have no indications of such an evolution, anywhere. Infact, one may aswell submit to the facrt (if one is educated in this area) the all language derives from a common, edenic ancestor about 5800 years back. This language is not like Cuneiform, which was strictly a symbolic representation of ideas, without being a spoken language, but some other language, possibly Hebrew.
