Humans may speak a universal language

Humans may speak a universal language, say scientists: Humans across the globe may be actually speaking the same language after scientists found that the sounds used to make the words of common objects and ideas are strikingly similar. 

 The discovery challenges the fundamental principles of linguistics, which state that languages grow up independently of each other, with no intrinsic meaning in the noises which form words.

Then why can't I understand most of it?

Perhaps the question answers itself?
