Glossolalia is the technical term for “Speaking In Tongues”. It can be seen in Christian Pentecostal churches, in some shamanic and voodoo rituals as well as on Youtube.
It is written in the Bible that people will be able to speak in tongues (Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4, Acts 10:46, 1 Corinthians 13:1). I have a few questions about it though:
Is there a way to tell the difference between someone speaking in real tongue and, say, someone making the stuff up as he or she goes?
I can pretend to speak Chinese, Russian and German on the spot. Does it count?
I would be more impressed by someone who converts to Christianity, then starts to speak fluent upper-class Sumerian than by someone who sounds like a drunken babbling buffoon who pretends to speak the language of the angels. Really.
I will now write in tongues for you. Ready?
“Lalana Optepth Ismaereit gahna ourah smill! Oura Karh delo pseir ricr.”
Was it the angels speaking through me or was I just making it up? How do you know?
