Title: The Origin Of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language

Title: The Origin Of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language
Author: Isaac Mozeson
Publisher: Lightcatcher Books

 

 

         Is proof of our Creator on the tips of human tongues and within hyoid bones around the world? Have linguists failed to address critical evidence proving that God designed any and all linguistic ability? Has the most important aspect of the Tower of Babel account in the Bible been overlooked?

 

         The author of The Origin Of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language believes that the answers and the evidence supporting them are in every syllable we speak.

 

         Isaac Mozeson’s raison d’etre is to prove that human language did not evolve by accident.

 

        Metaphorical physics and chemistry, sound and sense, plus word root diagramming are his tools for demonstrating that humanity once spoke the same universal language and abruptly lost that skill in Babel. His 264-page paperback sets out to prove God’s programming of the human mind and body to facilitate speech and literature. From phonemes to phonetics, the complex book requires close attention to the text.

 

         With analyses of physiology and of vocabulary in several languages, Mozeson strives to end the belief that language results from community consensus about using arbitrary sounds. He asks, “Does Genesis specifically say that Adam and Eve were created with a Divine language, or that Hebrew was the language of Eden and the angels? No, but there are verbatim quotes of the Creator, the angels (even in later books like Ezekiel), and Adam and Eve that are always and only in Hebrew. Kabbalah classifies the human being as ‘the speaker,’ and it is instructive to examine the passage on the creation of Adam. Adam’s nostrils served as a neurological plug-in port, and a language program was ‘breathed’ or downloaded into him. In Genesis (2:7), the first (modern) human has the Divine spirit blown into his nostrils – (perhaps blowing out the suddenly large brain case of this strangely divine animal). In Eden and in touch with the Lord, Man becomes Homo sapiens, a thinker. Thinking requires language. Whichever way you interpret it, Adam receives the ability to think abstractly, truly something no animal can do, something that classifies humans as being ‘in the image of God.’”

 

         Readers need to consider morals, goals and strategies in order to comprehend and evaluate Mozeson’s point.

 

         The language shared between God and Eden’s occupants was the Divinely created Edenic. Mozeson reminds us that Adam and Eve’s descendants spoke Edenic only until the ziggurat/Tower of Babel was constructed in order to enable the destruction of God. The goal was to let humanity rule the world as perversely as it wished, unimpeded by Moral Authority.

 

         Genesis records that God ended the rebellion by confounding human communication. Commentators indicate that He achieved this with different languages. Mozeson’s prose and charts demonstrate that 70 spin-off languages rooted in Edenic thus filled immoral heads. He shows how Babel’s spontaneously diverse foreign tongues spun off into dialects, becoming additional languages to the original 70. Meanwhile, the Edenic origin of each language became obscured by time, migration to other locales and the distractions of ensuing human experiences.

 

         Mozeson explains that it’s challenging, but not impossible, for the modern ear to detect what happened, and stresses that his materials are the first of what he hopes will become many explorations into this topic.

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
