Proto-language (glottogony)
The origin of language in the human species has been the topic of scholarly discussions for several centuries. In spite of this, there is no consensus on the ultimate origin or age of human language. One problem makes the topic difficult to study: the lack of direct evidence. Consequently, scholars wishing to study the origins of language must draw inferences from other kinds of evidence such as the fossil record or from archaeological evidence, from contemporary language diversity, from studies of language acquisition, and from comparisons between human language and systems of communication existing among other animals, particularly other primates. It is generally agreed[by whom?] that the origins of language relate closely to the origins of modern human behavior, but there is little agreement about the implications and directionality of this connection.
This shortage of empirical evidence has led many scholars to regard the entire topic as unsuitable for serious study. In 1866 the Linguistic Society of Paris banned any existing or future debates on the subject, a prohibition which remained influential across much of the western world until late in the twentieth century. Today, there are numerous hypotheses about how, why, when, and where language might first have emerged. It might seem that there is hardly more agreement today than a hundred years ago, when Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection provoked a rash of armchair speculations on the topic. Since the early 1990s, however, a growing number of professional linguists, archaeologists, psychologists, anthropologists, and others have attempted to address with new methods what some consider "the hardest problem in science".

Reading Andrew Robinson’s informative book Lost Languages, he refuses to believe that the “proto elamite script” was written by Elamites, and that the Hindu Kush mountains could have been of the same language group as Kush of Sudan, and that the oceans could have been traversed four thousand years ago to Easter Island, from the Indus valley civilization homeport of Kususthali (old Dwarka), now submerged in the Gulf of Kutch, not believing because Robinson doesn’t believe the history in the Bible, much to his professional detriment I think you’ll agree certainly when you read article #2 at http://iceagecivilizations. com, the Table of Nations in Genesis 10, the true template for the ancient spread of people and language.
