3800 Year Old Alphabet Found On Six Continents

July 16, 2001 8:00 CDT

A journalist, while attempting to document some unusual and very old rock art in remote North America, has discovered an ancient alphabet. This alphabet is identical to ancient writing found in two other distant locations around the globe. The author's discovery is in Colorado and has been dated to 800 BCE. In the Negev desert of Israel, this writing has been dated to 1500 BCE. In southern Australia, the alphabet is estimated to be over 3800 years old.

The language has been given the name "old Negev," after the location of the alphabet's initial discovery in the Sinai. In Australia it has been known for centuries by the name "Panaramitee," while in the Americas it has been misrepresented as Native American Indian sign language. The language and grammar are now understood to be proto-Canaanite and appear to have roots in common with Egyptian and Hebrew. The petroglyphs successfully translate to English using an old Hebrew dialect in all three locations.

There is a danger in representing the language as "old Negev" and "old Hebrew." Evidence of the antiquity of this script in both America and Australia suggest that this root language may pre-date that of the Hebrews. The author and his associates suggest using an unbiased name, such as "the First Tongue," to avoid any presumptive association with a specific people or era. The content of the translations, although not complete, suggests a common culture and religious belief system. But more scrutiny of this language system, its content and occurrence around the globe is indicated.
