Both you and Uri mentioned “proto-Semitic”. 
Are there any extent documents written in 
that language, even ones as short as the 
Mesha stone? Or are we talking about a 
reconstructed language, one based on 
theory? What if the theory is wrong? What 
if Biblical Hebrew, with 22 consonantal 
phonemes, is the “proto-Semitic” (there are 
some who make that claim)?

Dear Karl, 

May I suggest you study the subject, and then argue about it.

Don't you think that the Theory of Evolution is a bit outside the scope of this list?
