All other languages appear to have auspicious words in them except Arabic.

Reader comment on item: Does Learning Arabic Prevent Moral Decay?
in response to reader comment: The arabic Language

Submitted by Julio Alvarado (Guatemala), Mar 8, 2008 at 16:15

I am not an omniglot. There are many people who want to promote false ideas around. No other Arab around the prophet's time could have known this because if a person becomes amoral by speaking another language, it is very difficult for them to notice this, especially in the early period of Islam 1429 years ago.

It is very true, what someone here quoted, that arabic prevents moral decay; not only this, but as I have pointed out it does not have auspicious words of which languages such as greek or english beget euphemisms (words disguised to sound milder) and dysphemisms (words intended to sound harsher). Auspicious words are related to numerology in that they somehow bring about omens (either good or bad). Chinese characters which are based on semantic association with imagery in the world or its phenomena, are some of the first occurrences of this. A quick search about origins of numerology has proof of this. Superstition is the mother of all immorality.
