I tried to remove the bias where this article implicitly states as fact the theory that Hindi evolved from Proto-Indo-European, a language theorized by linguistic evolutionists to have been spoken at about 3900 BC, a date incompatible with Christian teachings about all languages being created by God in the third millennium BC. My attempt to create balance was quickly reverted by User:MatteeNeutra, so now again, there's a strong pro-evolution bias in the article. I wonder if this is really fitting for a conservative encyclopedia. --Brtkrbzhnv 12:01, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

There is no such thing as "linguistic evolutionism" -- but indeed, languages do change over time, if you want to call that "evolving" then you could waste time arguing against it, but a quick look at Chaucer, Shakespeare, or the King James Bible will show yout that English, like all languages, has changed. As for the 3900 BC date, that should not be an issue, since according to CreationWiki, even "Young Earth" creationists believe that, using "Biblical and other data for calculating a date for Abraham, we can calculate that the universe and the Earth were created approximately 6000 years ago."

There's not a "pro-evolution bias", just a "pro-let's-be-accurate" bias. MGA 23:01, 12 December 2007 (EST)
