Would chimps go beyond simple vocalizations, face expressions or body postures without our intervention ?



Think that was his point. We taught it a language.

Edit-please correct me if it was also your point.

Possible to learn languages? It is possible to perform a miracle.

As fast as the cosmos are moving, maybe from the force of dark energy, a synchronization of time and intelligence exists through the secrets of the mind. We use a very little amount of our mind, and this is because we are not capable of holding the capacity for what the powers of the mind are. So learning how to talk after 400,000 thousand years is a small feat, we should be making astonishing predictions and discoveries through the psychic mind at this time. Legend has it that in the 1800s before the hoaxers came out there really was Indian Yogis that could really do astonishing things with their mind.

A good question would be, why are the early forms of language depicted in Hieroglyphs? That just means language came before writing. When they had a word and wanted to display the word it was depicted as a bird or another animal. Now the Sumerian Hieroglyphs before the animal Hieroglyphs of the Egyptians are interesting and there are very few people who can even decipher them. When there was literally nobody who could decipher them Sitchin came out and said they were all about aliens, later it was discovered that it wasn't all about aliens, but like most disinformation there could be some amount of root core truth.


Based on the fossil record, the split between chimps' ancestors and those of ancestors of humans and Neanderthals is thought to have occurred some 5 million to 6 million years ago.


So 30,000 thousand years ago is when the Neanderthal became extinct, but humans have been around for 400,000 years, and probably had language for about 100,000 years.

The end of the last ice age around 12,000 years ago is a questionable period of time, certain references to a large flood, many interesting references in history, and many large stone structures weighing many tons.

That is a lot of time to learn how to talk, Atlanteans flying UFOs to mars or hunters and gatherers forming together 100's to hoist the pillars of Göbekli Tepe, language has been around for 10's of 1,000's of years, and thankfully to that intellectual pondering of ideas we have had brilliant new theories such as Newton and Einstein, and now for the future there will be a new theory that proves even better.

Yeah. Plus, we know that prairie dogs have a language. Actually, without some form of communication animals couldn't live in packs and prides and herds.

What both amazes and baffles me is how a dog can just look at another dog (a Chihuahua looking at a St. Bernard) and recognize its own kind.

Do they? Can they do it with pictures, and without smell?

In the flesh, dogs can smell and see if they act like dogs. In domesticated dogs' experience, living things that walk are only a few categories:

a) dogs (play/hump)
b) humans (play/beg)
c) medium animals with claws, cats & raccoon (careful chasing them)
d) small crawlies like rats/mice/possum/rabbits/gophers (whoo hoo! go for it)
e) stupid big herd animal (bark & herd, if a working shepherd dog)
f) ??? (bark like heck)

Decision making process is not that difficult. If in doubt they see what other dogs and their humans are doing, react the same.

I don't see the connection between your statement and mine. As for dogs recognizing other dogs, they don't even need smell or sight. Just today I am plagued by the neighbor's dog barking because he hears another dog barking somewhere else in the neighborhood.

I've always thought about this, who first taught egyptians arabic or hieroglyphics, who first learned the knowledge of mathematics and from where. Why is there so many different languages spread throughout the world?

I think the tower of babel was introduced by one of two alien races who did not want us to serve their enemy aliens who are trying to rule over us through the new world order to make us servants. By dividing us, we cannot cooperate long enough with each other to be of service to the dictator aliens. Our separation keeps us from conforming to a new world order. This weakens us as a civilization, but strengthens us as individuals.
