My certainty comes from faith.
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of
things not seen.

You seem to be asking me for proof and I cannot give you proof. This is not
a scientific exercise. All I can offer is a belief that animals did not talk
and that the most logical explanation is supernatural intervention. The word
'discernment' comes to mind when I think of 'why'.

For you to use the argument that neither Eve nor Balam were surprised at
hearing an animal speak as support for your argument is an unjustified
interpretation. How do you know that they weren't surprised? At what point
in history did animals stop comunicating with us in this way?
