The alphabet

Posted by Leigh on June 24, 2003

I know this is meant to eb a forum about phrases and such but I have posted on here and other sites before and found I get the best responce here.

Why is the alphabet ordered the way it is, I know that I derives from the greek and possibly some civilisation before them but in the very begining, why was the alphabet order the way it is. Is there a reason for the order or was it just random????
