Religious people who "speak in tongues" What are they actually doing? Some of them think they are speaking legitimate foreign languages. Are they just babbling the first thing that pops into their head thinking god's speaking through them, or... well I don't even know what the alternative could be, logically. I know a handful of friends that start doing this, and it doesn't really sound like gibberish, but I doubt they just mysteriously learned a new language. I have seen videos of people trying to do it, and it does sound hilariously like gibberish, so I'm not sure.
