Of course not. A lot of those stories have a grain of truth in them some where. That's not to say we should accept the book, in its entirety, as a whole truth though.
Recently, there was a movie out about Lincoln being a Vampire hunter. There were facts in that movie. This does not mean, however, we should all believe in vampires.
Oh, I thought you were confessing that there are true statements somewhere in the Bible about the sugject matter. I was beginnng to celebrate too early, the storm clouds are gatherin again.....

Been here before and what can I say? You totally ignored the facts then, seems to be one of you failings.
English STARTED in northern Europe, with a little Latin and French thrown in.
Like all languages it evolved and is still evolving today. The fact that much of that evolution happened in England makes no difference to the fact that as a language it did not start in England
Here is Meriam-Websters short history,
http://www.merriam-webster.com/help/faq/histo...
Note the –“The earliest period begins with the migration of certain Germanic tribes from the continent to Britain in the fifth century A.D.”
Also notice the influence of –“Latin, Old Norse (the language of the Viking invaders), and especially the Anglo-Norman French”
Now I know for certain that Meriam-Webster knows a bit more about the history of the English language than you do.
Wrong!
Did those language that influenced English similar to English, yes or no? No!
Latin, Greek, Norman French, etc, are never the same as English.
That is the reason why, English is unique to England. Think!

And again, show me one trace English in Northern or Main land Europe? Waiting!
English despite its many influences, started in England.

Of course there are true statements. For instance, there very likely WAS a great flood but not one that covered the whole world for 40 days. There likely might have been someone like to Noah - perhaps a farmer who rode out the flood in an upturned shed with a few of his livestock - but not an ark containing two of every animal. I mean, come on, that would be just silly.

By what measures? By origination, because anything English must have one or more connections with England.
I challenge you to find ANY link that agrees with your position that England **OWNS** the English language, or that the English languate "belongs" to England.

What is language? Today we know that all life has it and it is a system consisting of arranged uttered or marked symbols. If language is to be communicated, it must be coherently uttered or written by an intelligent originator or source providing it. Communication is at its most heightened use in places that are regular meeting places where competetion for sustenance for maintainng ones life and that of families of kinds happen. A body of words or symbols are patterned to convey meaning to each kind and change is related to new or differing events if they are to be mentioned.
Yes, ordered information (language) comes from an intelligent (ability to choose) originator. DNA is ordered information as well. Each and every biological species has a fixed blue print.

How do you study and learn about the laws of nature that GOD created without using your bible. Remember, GOD created nature for man to observe and learn first. So how do you observe nature and tell me what is right and wrong.

From your premise, English would have been Latin, Greek and what have you, but the language remain distinct from its influences. Think!
English is a compound language.
