Not only did it, the Torah isn't in Aramaic. If you're really
interested, you can note that the plurals in the Torah end in "-im" or
"-ot", whereas most plurals in Aramaic end in "-in". Hebrew was the
liturgical language, where Aramaic was the language of the people.

Also, whether the Torah has vowels or not has nothing to do with
humans. The newspaper Yediot Acharonot (and all the other ones) don't
have vowels, either. :--)
