What reason could you possibly have for the misspelling of "cuneiform" I wonder? In my browser the "cuneixform" spelling you chose is even
underlined in the squiggly red mark which notifies you that a right-click of your mouse will offer possible spelling options which might be the word
you were looking for. The proper spelling is listed first on my browser under suggestions.
It did occur to me that "mae-he-coe" might be the way peoples of Mesopotamia would have said the word... except that such is also inaccurate.
Mesopotamian languages, as far as linguists understand them, made use of every letter, and combination, presented in a word. So, the word MEXICO would
most likely have been said as: "Mess-ee-koe" which is still different from the OPs theory.
How exactly can tunnel vision cause me to run from anything? Tunnel vision implies I am moving toward something, a particular thing, with no regard
for the reality of what is around said thing. Kind of like someone who claims the Olympian deities are a metaphor for bio-engineered life, while
ignoring the reality of the situation. That reality being: he listed the wrong Olympians, failed to demonstrate his English Gematria, fell flat on
proving whatever he wanted to about Mexico and Spanish, and has not offered one iota of proof for any of his other claims.
I think it's pretty clear who has the closed mind; perhaps it be the two posters here who are unwilling to listen to anything but their own warped,
irrational, and provably false claims. See, I can offer petty insults too. I always thought insulting the person, instead of their claim, made one a
lesser man though. So I try to shy away from doing that. Thanks for showing your true colors though!
When you learn proper grammar, so I can understand the question, I will be happy to offer an answer if one is available to me. If you meant to ask:
"please tell us what the first language spoken by humans was" then I can only inform you that your ignorance precedes you, my good sir. Language
evolves. There was no "first" language, because language is a system of communicative gestures, sounds, and actions. However, it is clear to me you
have no understanding of linguistics, or how cultural traits develop across the world. That being so, my words are ultimately doomed to fall on deaf
As for the origins of man... again... it's evolutionary. If we're referring to the genus Homo
then our earliest ancestors are the Homo
who lived about 2.5 million years ago. They were from the southern and eastern part of Africa. Now, modern humans are (obviously) not the
same as our ancestors, that's how evolution works. We evolve traits and characteristics which benefit the species over long periods of time. So, no,
we're not the same, but that doesn't mean we're not related, and therefore yes, yes we all come from Africa.
As for why their are so many languages? Maybe because there weren't always 6 billion of us living everywhere all at once, but that instead we evolved
and migrated in different directions, developing different dialects of speech, as per individual band or tribe, independently of one another.
There is no grand mystery behind all of this. The origin, evolution, and biological development of humans is known. Just because you're uneducated in
it's finer points does not mean they do not exist. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if you still thought the world was flat, the sun circumabulated
around us, stars were holes in the sheet of Heaven, that Hell exists at the center of the planet, and men have one less rib then women do.
I would weep tears of shame for all of humanity that we still produce individuals so unenlightened. But I would not be surprised.
