    Well.. it depends on if you believe in Christ or not.

    If you look at it as God created us: He created different animals.

    Communications and different languages well there was a bible story I randomly read but I forgot what it's called. He made our planet in these boarders

    If you look at it like God doesn't exist: Animals were created like we were I guess. Plates shifted to make lands seperate and have oceans in between. And without God in this equation there is not an explanation that we speak different languages lol

    Because languages evolve, that's why they are dead languages (no longer spoken) and that is why XII century English sounds so weird (it happens to all languages) even within the same language they are different dialects, sometimes separated for a few miles but enough to loose contact, a river, a mountain...

    BTW this is an ongoing process, they keep evolving...

    Yes, and let everyone in the whole world eat the same food, dress the same and celebrate Christmas. Human society is more complex than the animals, and isn't that wonderful?

    Different people from different parts of the world develop different cultures.

    If you take away their language and unite them in a single universal tongue, then you're stripping them of their valuable culture and history.

    If it makes you feel any better, at the rate we're going, it won't be long before everybody speaks English in some capacity.
