<quoted text>There are no other books to compare with the greatest one ever compiled.
Sure there are. there are ones filled with facts, not lies. why would you follow a book full of known lies that was written by humans that were proven to not be divinely inspired?

this adherence to your cult in the face of reality really, really isn't a healthy frame of mind. have you sought counseling?

Likeness of you and GOD is you both have the ability to choose.
Didn&#8217;t Jesus say we are all gods in your bible?
Remember, if you hold the bible to be the truth then you must hold everything in that book to be true. You can't hold some things to be true and some things not to be true.
Remember the bible said hold on to only that is true.
Jesus said God is a spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. If you are a truth seeker you will find what you are looking for in the pages of the Bible. There is one God according to the Bible and Jesus prayed to him.

Nature is the truth and science books speak about these truths (natural laws) and I must go to these books and learn terminology as a truth seeker. How can I find these truths in the bible when they are not there like your bible claims it should be?

Nature is following patterns that were given by God. God created all living things after their own kinds and said for them to be fruitful and multiply. You can find the truth of this if you are seeking it.

The one true God is the one who sent Jesus to the cross on the hill of the skull. I have my own reasons for knowing this.

I accept and speak in absolute truths and validate it as self-evident truths (undeniable) supported with empirical evidence.
In other words, I am not religious and I support no documented religions, philosophical views and scientific INDIVIVIDUAL statements that are not validated as an absolute truth. Your scientific method is not qualified to deal with my scientific method and discoveries of absolute truths found in reality because the existence of reality is not falsifiable by your scientific method because all there is in reality is absolute truths because reality its self is an absolute truth. THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO KNOW AND UNDERTAND WHY WE WILL NEVER AGREE WHEN WE ARE INVESTIGATING SCIENTIFIC ISSUES!
Now...do you want to rephrase a different question to me that is not based on reality (absolute truth) because this is all your scientific method can speak on!
Sorry my friend, but you are batsh!t crazy. Science HAS proven the things I listed and it IS reality. Just another apologist for Christian lies.

A simple question. Is English Latin?
An Italian( Roman) must learn/ practise English before he/ she will understand the language. That is the distinction. Dig?

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 don’t say that, the babble is full of references to vampires, of course FS believes in them.

<quoted text> 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!
So the professionals are wrong and you are right? Don’t talk utter bollocks all your life, take a day off.

“are never the same”–“unique”? See below

<quoted text> And again, show me one trace English in Northern or Main land Europe? Waiting!
English despite its many influences, started in England.
There are over 4000 words of French that the English have taken and spell identically with exactly the same meaning. Here are some you know

absent, action, danger, fruit, nation, parking, police, sabotage, train.

There I bet you never realised you were intelligent enough to know some French

Also there are over 10,000 words in French that are spelled similar with the same meaning as English. Your idiotic shout to show you “one trace” is blown out of the water with about 12% of the most commonly used English words being taken directly from and spelled the same or similar to the French

To embarrass you a little but more, a similar situation applies for German, at least 300 words are identical, and a couple of thousand similar.

Addition, aluminium (European spelling), definition, detail, idiot, radius (see latin below), religion, testament and of course one of your favourite words “god” is of 6th century German origin.

Similar for Latin

Acerbic, caper, color, deus, femina, finis, homo, opus, pollen, radius, sinister, terminus, various.

All Latin words and I am sure there are some that you can instantly recognise although a few are spelled slightly differently.

And similar for Greek but the alphabet makes it a bit more difficult for you to comprehend, here’s a few using Latin script

amphoreus, neuron, pathos

Take a speaker of medieval English to Holland or Denmark and find speaker of the medieval dialect for that country, the conversation would be for the most part seamless. This has been done several times I have seen 3 TV programmes based in this fact.

It really is time you got of this English is English hobby horse of yours, every time you are disproved you go around back to the beginning hoping for a different answer.

Other apes show a clear reasoning capability and many species demonstrate the ability to choose.

So ... your bible was wrong again.
