Getting on and delivering Bablexit


On my article “On the Origin of Speeches” defending a literal Biblical understanding of the origins of languages, one reader, Everett, wrote a Comment:

This judgmental event of the confusion of tongues makes me wonder how individual persons could maintain pair bonds and keep their families together. If so that right after forgetting the adamic language and gaining unique replacements for every single person, i don’t see how a family could understand one another and stay whole unless the respective languages they spoke were similar enough to permit comprehension. Or else, if the languages/dialects were provided at random, how could a husband speaking Turkish, for example, attempt to communicate with his Welsh-speaking wife? Also a man in love with a girlfriend speaking gibberish may be forced to find a different woman to marry who speaks a language within his language family.

I think that this theory of every person receiving his/her own language apart from an ordered dispensation to unite families seems a little implausible, and perhaps detrimental to society ever reforming after Babel.

I for some reason found this in my feed again and wrote a new answer, and then saw that I had made an earlier answer back in 2016. I would now therefore like to make a new article combining the best of the old and new answers, which essentially say the same hing but focus on different aspects of the question.

It’s an excellent question.

First it is fair to point out that there were not any language families then. This came about only much later. Hundreds and hundreds of years later. Hence finding a new partner with one’s own language family just wasn’t an option.

They are obviously still very much in love, but sulking. Each is hoping the other will turn around first. They miss each other, although they are only two feet apart, it may as well be another continent.

Original YT playout date: 4 May 2008
Duration: 10:38

This time we talk about respect, and an appropriate approach to ourselves, other people in society, the animal kingdom and growing things also.

We deal with the offence of vegetarianism and the correct way to conduct cannibalism and food-hoarding in times of incumbent famine.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #21 – Journey home from Turkey


Original YT playout date: 4 May 2008
Duration: 14:08

The 21st and final part of Huliganov’s Turkish experience – final that is until I go back there in 2014, This rounds off the current series, and some folks from Turkey who watched all 21 episodes concluded that I came away with a better understanding of Turkey than most visitors they know about, which I took as a great compliment. I think Turkey’s a fantastic place. Much better than I thought it would be.

Before my first visit I did not want Turkey to join the EU because they might spoil it by introducing Islam. Now I’m more worried that the EU could actually ruin their successes, built originally by the massive statesman Ataturk. They have a secular society, which means that although Islam is the majority religion, most people in the big cities are fairly disinterested and the clerics and zealots don’t get to push everyone else around. They know how to deal with Islam in their society, we don’t. We give the Islamic pushers more room to manoeuvre than they get in Turkey, and the EU would probably end up telling Turkey to give more freedom to the religious conservatives, allowing them to wear their scarfs in Parliament, etc, as well as forcing them to stop preparing certain local delicacies which we think are not healthy, like sheeps’ intestines.

In the end one way or another, we may be destined never to be in the same Union, but we should be close friends with Turkey, and allow them the best trade and mobility relations with our countries.”
