Language- proof of god.

Language- proof of god.
thought is impossible without language. every thought you are thinking while reading this uses language.

languages cannot be created without thought.

this means that there must have been a language that we have always had.

however, every language needs a creator as names of things are not innate, but learned.

the creator of the original language must be god.

Your fundamental assumption "Thought is impossible without language" is questionable. I've seen many infants reason long before they had any language.

i believe that that is due to instincts...blah blah blah.

however, thought of concepts is impossible without language. (right and wrong, death, how we got here, etc.)

ultimately, language is a concept, so the chain is still intact.

RE: Language- proof of god.
I have to agree with Messenger...I think your basic premise is flawed. I think it's more correct to say language is impossible without thought. Language is merely a filter, a way to express thought to others. While actual experiments that could test this premise would no doubt be considered unethical, I think thought would exist independent of language.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't there more happy people?

Okay... in my phychology book, there was a sentence that read "without language, thought is impossible". i thought that this was reletively well proven fact. however,through further research, i now see that there is a large controversy over the issue.

since there is a controversy over that issue, there will be a controversy over this proof, it is not really proof.

RE: Language- proof of god.
I think most people would agree with the sentence "Without language, complex thought is impossible."

RE: Language- proof of god.
The origin of language is an unsolved puzzle, but I don't think anything suddenly appears out of nowhere; with the possible exception of the universe. There must have been some sort of process, starting out with the most primitive language, and then gradually evolving into something more sophisticated and versatile.

There are reasons for believing in God. To take one example, evolution may have (almost certainly did) happen, but for me personally, it still stretches credulity to breaking point to believe that the never ending upward spiral in complexity (from single cell organisms to us) was wholly undirected. The very fact that it happened at all shrieks direction.
