"Amazon Announces Purchase of English™
By Michael Bourne posted at 6:00 am on April 1, 2013 12
SEATTLE – Amazon announced today that it has acquired the English language and plans to fully privatize the world’s predominant mode of written communication. As of 6 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time April 1, anyone writing in Amazon’s proprietary language, now known as English™, will be obligated to pay a “licensing fee” to the Seattle-based online retailer.
The purchase of English™ for an undisclosed sum in cash and stock completes Amazon’s meteoric rise from an online bookseller to a global behemoth dominant in the spheres of online retailing, cloud computing, and digital publishing. It remains unclear who sold English™, though credible reports suggest that Apple and Google had earlier offered to buy the language, only to be outbid by Amazon at the eleventh hour.
“We are pleased to add English™ to our growing family of products,” said an exultant Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.“We just bought GoodReads last week, and we already own Audible.com along with numerous digital publishing platforms, so buying the language outright was an obvious next step. This way, we will be able to put the Amazon stamp on the creative process itself, rather than merely on the finished product.”

Hey Kong, don't try to divert the true positions of things.
My position is that, English whether in Canada( Seatle or any where around), the US, Australia, Scotland, New Zealand, Ireland, Wales or any where, all had roots from England, because English started and originated there. Period.

What a liar you are! What's the use of having taxonomy in Biology then? And why do we have to learn them?
<quoted text>
Again another LIE! Do you know what human physiology is? The study of human anatomy. A doctor doesn't need to know that reptiles and amphibians have a heart with less chambers than humans, for instance, and how the heart evolved. All he needs to know is how the blood circulates in the the heart and what causes heart diseases, and whatnot. All the rest of your gibberish is red herring.
"A doctor doesn't need to know that reptiles and amphibians have a heart with less chambers than humans"

While you describe minimal requirements, We tend to gravitate toward the extraordinary exceptions who exceed the maximum requirements. Leaving you in the duh category.
But it wouldn't be the first time now would it?

Yet the REAL fact is, there is no standard "English" language. In the USA alone, you will find many different dialects, unique words, phrases, grammer, spelling, and definitions being accepted and used by a group of people.

Farmers in the midwest using a slightly different language than urban youth in the major cities, who are using different language than highly educated people in the suburbs, and other subcultures in (for example) Southern California surf community using other "English" language derivations.

ALL of which would be somewhat 'alien' to the residents of England. Fortunately, there is more common ground with respect to our communication that we rarely have an issue with it, but you can look up "American English" on Google, and it will differ in subtle ways from the parent English language.

The official Scrabble dictionary is all you need to define what English is! no more debate on that!

Don't you think Gods or Goddesses would love to walk on the face of the Earth to experience life? In Buddhism, they can achieve this and become God incarnates. And many of us who are aware will fight for it, and will be claiming their place even to the extent of waging wars against each other. But others will just be unaware or unwilling. Maybe it's not this time right now. To me, it might be the last.

Tell me about it. My cousins live in rural Minnesota (100 mi west of Minneapolis). Even our same, identically spelled last name is pronounced differently up there due to Nordic/Germanic influences.

There is already a tool found in nature that falsifies data. We don’t need a flawed man made concept to do this.
The scientific evidence you present should be soundly judged with the “Law of non-contradiction” found in nature. Man/woman is prone to mistakes and biased and prejudice views.
Scientific laws are absolutes and validated by the “Law of non-contradictory” which means your answer must be constant. Hence, you cannot use one word with two opposite meanings. This is where the law of non-contradictory becomes the scientific method and not a man-made concept that permits you to define words anyway you want to.
Theory of evolution is a pseudo-science when it says the origin of biological species is not fixed.
A biological reproductive species is fixed (law of non-contradictory) and this means the humans on planet earth has always been this way since there origin on earth according to strata/fossil layers.
To say a human being which is now a fixed species and was not a fixed species 30 million year ago violates the Law of non-contradictory.
We can’t be a human being in existence now and a non-human being in existence in the distant past regardless of the time scale it took us to SO CALL CHANGE FROM ONE BIOLOGOCAL SPECIES TO AN OPPOSITE (CONTRADICTORY) BIOLOGICAL SPECIES! This violates the law of non-contradiction.
CASE CLOSED!
You and your 'law' are full of sh!t. We know the science is right and you have no way of disproving what I have presented to you because it IS true.

The most significant chapters of the Bible, the ones that define and promulgate the Christian God, are Provably wrong/untrue.

You can argue all you want about small details of DNA science, archaeology, creationists pseudo-science, day-age theory, law of 'this or that', etc., etc. and it doesn't matter because the creationists foundational stories are provably myths.

We know and can prove that the earth was NOT created by a floaty thing in the sky, that mankind was NOT created on the 'sixth day' of 'creation, that there was NOT a world-wide flood, or a floaty thing causing mankind to split their language, NO exodus occurred and Joshua did not destroy all those towns.

These things are basically proven by science and I think the most important ones are; there was no Adam and Eve, and there was no Exodus.

I defy you to present proof of that Adam and Eve were real and that the Exodus was a real event....or any of the other stuff above.

Bobby, you keep wasting your time over that/ this.
Dialect or no dialects, English language started in England. Dig?
