BS!!! I have learned from experience in the last 4 years, especially in the last 6-8 months that if there is a god he doesn't care. Waiting on god to help is nothing but a dead end and you will die before it happens. I have seen so many people suffer and prayed my @ss off to no avail. I would rather burn in hell when I am dead than watch people suffer when I am alive. There is no point to the suffering if your almighty god you claim can step in and change it. I see no point in the craziness of praying to someone that does not answer. Either he is there and does not listen or he just doesn't give a f#cking rats @ss!!!

Danfromsmithville I believe I learnt the best lesson from you in that don't let the little shyt on the internet get to you so bad which I did at first but later learned to let it go.

"It is interesting to contemplate a tangled bank, clothed with many plants of many kinds, with birds singing on the bushes, with various insects flitting about, and with worms crawling through the damp earth, and to reflect that these elaborately constructed forms, so different from each other, and dependent upon each other in so complex a manner, have all been produced by laws acting around us.....Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."

Charles Darwin
Origin of the Species, first edition 1859

Its not sweet, but it is grand. No false promises of fairness or escape from suffering. That you have to achieve, and practice, on your own and with those you care about.

Nope not OK
It really does not matter how hard you stomp your foot
Parts of the English language were first spoken in England
Other parts of it were first spoken in various parts of Europe
Some of the older words were fist spoken in the middle east
And some of the newer words were first spoken in India, China etc.
And of course the country of England is still a multicultural society and has been for at least 2500 years, probably far, far more stretching back to before the last ice age.
The real problem here I that you do not know how to phrase you insults so they are not insults. What you need to do is earn an extra couple of years of education and then, with luck and hard work you can write exactly what you mean to write.
That is why you are an idiot. All languages had got that development, English is not an exception. And if you don't know, all those places in mainland Europe must learn English before they can understand unlike England.

You are the one trying to diminish my nationality

As I have explained to you repeatedly, and have provided the academic evidence from several highly respected sources to verify my explanations that most of the English language did not originate in England.

Sources that you revel in displaying your deliberate ignorance by ignoring, this m dear is the very height of ignorance. Those unwilling to educate themselves in the light of proven and evidential fact and repeat the same old ignorance over and over again are ignorant beyond ignorance and thus are known as trolls.

You are a prime example of that common pest we all know as a troll.

Here is another example to add to you collection – chocolate is not of English origin but a Nahuatl word (what is now known as Mexico) as does Guacamole.

You seem to be saying that people who speak English are solely English

An American who speaks English is not American but English?

An Australian who speaks English is not Australian but English

A Chinese airline pilot to must speak English to the control tower is not Chinese while speaking to the control tower but English?

Wow I didn’t know that.

You really have no comprehension of the stupidity of your posturing do you?

And therefore very few languages originated in the place they are named after. Yoyu have just tripped yourself up without even realising what you said…

And what you are saying is that when a French person learns English they becomes English?

Are you really this stupid or is it an troll act for topix?

Ahh but Britain is not just a political term

Britain is a nation as recognised by every other political system in the world. It is a name on a map, it is a culture of cultures, Britannia was a country hundreds of years before the Angles invaded.

You may try and diminish that nationality all you want but it makes no difference to the fact that you are a lying and ignorant troll and completely wrong

But you think you are right and the whole world except for the great god charlie idiot is wrong, you think you know, there is a difference between what you think and what everyone knows, it’s called self delusion.

Your "sole" failure is to describe English as a possession. Here's a simple example.

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary...

English words do NOT all originate in England. They don't own it. The name is defined by the focal point where the most conventional form of it is spoken.

That's the entire problem with you Charles. Everything in your world is wrapped up tight in ownership, authority and blueblood entitlement. Your whole maniacal debate began with your sense of "Christian" ownership, authority and entitlement and somehow you mutated Christianity to exist as an English commodity, which it isn't and never was.

You're lost in the CoE flavor of propaganda that exists to give legitimacy to the royalty of England, something that they split with the Vatican on over a simple thing like allowing the king to divorce.

Charles, you're like a stray dog looking for someone to take him in and feed him. You keep getting abused and you keep coming back for more. You really are just performing the role of the village idiot on this thread. Give it up and go home already!

Then why aren't Brazilians called Portuguese, since that is their official language? Why am I not called English by any other than the Amish?
The fact remains that you are using inductive logic - and even that rather poorly, as you are bending context and linguistics to confuse yourself even further. A dog has four legs and a horse has forelegs, therefore a dog is a hoarse.
I am very sure you hate the word,'' think". Every one knew that Brazil is officially speaking a portuguese language that originated in Portugal, the same applies to all English speaking countries, that English, originated in England.
