Why does our species have so many different languages?

If each of us is a descendant of the same lower primate and region in a time from long ago, how did our culture fracture into the thousands and our tongue break into over seven thousand pieces? If we are all the descendants of the same ape or perhaps even a version of Adam and Eve, why do we not speak one language?

    Do you believe that this fracturing of language is reversible to a degree? Will globalism help us to develop one unified language?
