Well u cannot estimate the birth of a language on the wrtten script available . The first kannada script available is dated on 80bc of chutu dynasty and it uses sanskrit script. And language takes milleniums to develop and centuries to use it on written form. Yes there are languages which are older which are dead like sanskrit, pakrit, aincient greek and latin. There are languages which are older which is still being used in east africa , but guinnese dont recognise that they need proof and written estymology . And according to available proof kannada is the oldest living language in world officially recognised.

No Brother its not a worst script , it is the real and true language of India and stands alone , because it has not collaborated or barrowed loan words from other language . Kannada is very well modified and scripted with Sanskrit that's the difference .

I m a Tamil but I know to read and write in both the Language including all other like Sanskrit , hindi , telugu and Malayalam . As you respect other languages , we Tamil also love and respect , you should not blame every one for your personal experience .

These shudra tamil kongas dravidians have no ancesterial history they came frm east africa to india through some mythological island there entire history is ruled by brahmins. Why woud conservative brahmins make a konga a king lol. Pallavas are kuruba kannadigas, pandyas are chutu kannadigas, cholas are telugus chodas , cheras are naboothri brahmins of kerala. Tamil script is derived from malyalam not the other way around . These tamil kongas are only boosting lies over here. We kannadigas, telugus are not dravidians.
Yes tamil is the oldest language and living language in world first spoken by humans in africa (language similar to tamil is spoken in east africa google it) even tamil mythology says they came frm east africa through kumari kundam to india genetic study have prooven it.
Kannada is derived frm sanskrit it is the 2nd oldest living language in world . Who cares first or second. Our kannada has won 8 gyanapeeta award and is derived frm sanskrit.
Ayyo Konga nanna magane ( Veera Kannadiga ) first Konkani yelli konga anno padha idhe adhu nodo , Yes every body knows that Human race is originated from Africa and of course we are proud to be your fathers and fore Fathers , but still the way you speak you cant be a Kannadiga . Because I I know how real Kannada peoples are not like you . Yes for your information you are right Kannnada got 8 Gyanapeeta Award because you people always think more about language than Country , but Tamils have More Than 8 awards of Bharat Ratna . Indias most Honoured Award we are in all fields . Hence forth speak properly every body know offensive language Nan Magne oshyar

The medieval cholas were eastern chalukyas merged with early cholas of tamilnadu at 800 a.d. Temples in tamilnadu were builted by telugus like pallavas,nayaks and remaining temples were builted by medieval cholas(eastern chalukyas).

I'm still trying to figure out the answer to the question "why does it matter, and who cares?" So long as they're both functional languages, it's immaterial which one is predating the other. So what is this, the case of 'my language can beat up your language'? Maybe it's a cultural thing, and I just don't get it (being a pragmatic Western thinker)
I want to tell onething to all these people. Why this fight? To Tamils: If Tamil is oldest , what you are going to get? To Kannadigas : If Kannada is oldest, what you are going to get? Wherever you are in Bangalore,chennai or in delhi. For Your food you have to work hard. Then only you can survive. Being a kannadiga in bangalore will not provide any free food. I have to work Same case everybody. This might seem a off topic but this is true. Please ask this question to yourself. If you blame the person in front you , be ready to hear the same blaming from him. If you blame tamil, Tamil will blame you.If Tamil and kannada are this much hatred why dont we fight for a separate country like pakistan. Stop this non-sense things. A lie never be a truth if you tell it for 100 times. Tamils if you want to prove yourself share some wiki links or some evidence. Kannadas if you prove yourself share some wiki links or some evidence. I dont know who started this topic. What is the need for this now? If you throw a stone in mud, mud will spoil you. Blaming other language is like throwing stone from a glass room. Please stop this non-sense talks. Be creative. Dont be a racist. Try to be Part of our nation's growth.

Tamil and tamilnadu is fake. Entire tamilnadu history is fake. Tamils r copycats from telugu, tamils copied everything from telugu. Half of the tamils r origins of telugu.
