Who invented language "besides god"!

who invented launguage & numbers

I believe many of our letters and numbers are Arabic in origin. The language itself developed with people, of course - then changed with each group as people lived in different geographical areas, then merged again, to some extent as people fought wars and moved into each other's territory. Now we have the mish-mash that is modern English, Spanish and all the other languages.

Languages change very quickly - I read that a hyphenated word had a life of around a year, before it became one word. So if we used mish-mash a lot, it would very soon be mishmash.

God, being non-existent of course, had nothing to do with it.

I have heard that Hebrew, was the first language, so basically, they did.

Earliest record of the Hebrew language dates at about 10 century BCE. There are much older languages than that, and primitive man had been communicating by informal crude communication even further back than that.
I didn't red thumb you, but I can guess that the reason you are getting them is because this answer is simply incorrect.
Though Hebrew is an old language, it was far from the first.

Fine, They did in fact, make the first language but somehow, I deserve a red thumbs down now, for mentioning that, even though the topic and question is, who made the first language. Great, thanks. I will not help you reinvent the wheel though. So i think i'm done here.

Well their saying it is the first and oldest language in continual use...I still don't see how thats not relevant?? and how I deserve a red thumbs down...

So yeah there were systems, if you will, before that but, in a sense, Hebrew is the first true language

Again, I didn't red thumb you...I don't give thumbs either way most times.
Hebrew is NOT the first language, factually or otherwise...it simply isn't true! I can't change reality for you...
I am not trying to reinvent anything? I answered your question as factually as I can, this is nothing personal against you! People are allowed to be wrong man, it leads us to go find "right."

You shouldn't focus too much on those thumbs.
They are often times arbitrary and always out of your control.
I have gotten red thumbed for answering things with something as simple as one word.
I have a few stalkers on here that red thumb EVERYTHING I say on here.
No none is attacking you, you were wrong not maliciously lying to deceive.

We did not "invent" them as much as we "developed them.

I won't give you the entire history lesson, but early forms of man had crude language, which like evolution formed from simple to more complex structures.
The need to define, count, measure, barter, and share among ourselves necessitated the development of early mathematics.

Who told you god invented language and numbers?

These are thing that happened in pre history, when we were just little bands of nomads walking around and hunting and gathering. No one group of people can be attributed to this. Now the alphabet is different, this can be attributed to several groups around the mediterainian sea, most notably the phenecians.

Bad spelling in that last sentence.
