And nobody could identify it on any of these occasions?

argh, I have class now, but if you're really interested in speaking in tongues, b/c it CAN happen to you, I mean, it can happen to anyone...

and scroll down to the "tongues" link.

What actual language it is, no. Maybe if someone came to a church and recorded people speaking in tongues, like a linguist or something, they could identify it.

...I don't think most people who are speaking in tongues are as concerned w/ knowing what language they're speaking as they are with FEELING God.

Sounds very subjective to me. I had heard from people claiming to have witnessed speaking in tongues that it is not a recognisable language.

Either way, it doesn't seem miraculous if it is not a proper language that the speaker didn't know.

I agree. I find it pretty fascinating linguistically, though.

(Class was canceled! )

Just wanted to mention in response to Kyry, that in the scriptural text I posted, the on-lookers DID recognize the languages being spoken. They said "we hear men speak in the tongues from the lands that we were born in"

Indeed, but I don't think the Bible is objective enough to be taken at face value in something like this.

yes and it scared me.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 11/20/03 - 2:07:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes,... Frightening isn't it??
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/03 - 12:45:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes and I speak in tongues myself.

Yes, as a child I was in a weird Pentecostal
church once (my family was visiting someone, we're all pretty non-religious) and they were doing that. It scared me!
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 1/1/04 - 1:14:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah lots and lots of times. i grew up in a pentecostal church.

Mr 16:17 And these signs will be with those who have faith: in my name they will send out evil spirits; and they will make use of new languages; Yes, I do believe in it. I speak in tongues myself. Its a special language between you and the Holy Spirit. Sometimes you don't know what to pray for so the spirit in you knows so it speaks in tongues. You might understand it or you might not. Not all people will get it. They have other gifts that God will give them.

I've seen someone come close to doing it, it's pretty strange.

Yeah a few times in my early teens when I was still involved in church. It made me uneasy.
