Britain is a nation why the fook do you have such problems understanding this basic concept?
Please advise how you could consider that a lie? The entire world apart from you and the odd terminally stupid moron accepts that Britain is a nation.
I have never claimed British as a language, that is your own deliberate ignorance stepping in to make up lies. The liar here is you
Remains? Until quite recently French was the dominant language, it is only the rise of the US on the world political scene that has promoted the English language to its current lofty position
Why are the Scots fighting for their freedom, if Britain is a nation?

English is a language, nation or an ethnic, British is not, but a political term for unity.

Once again, you bore us with six more posts of this trash because you have not got a single argument against evolution that stacks up. Keep hiding, cowardly little Polack. No wonder so many British lives had to be lost to save your sorry little cowardly asses from the Germans.

When are you going to learn that most old English was spoken in the north of Europe before England was even called England, quite a lot of it was spoken in France and still is and the remaining smatter came for elsewhere.
The stupid is strong in you - You really do need to watch out for idiotic statement like “English was never spoken anywhere historically, except England,…”
What language to Americans or Australians or (most) Canadians speak? Historically speaking of course…
After about 2 years you still seem to be incapable of comprehending this simple premise. I really do not see why you have such a mantel block to your education here
You are a troll. English according to scholarly sources, was first spoken in England. not northern Europe. Go home and cry.

Yes, i am right by saying historically. English started in England before spreading to other nations.

As I have said repeatedly, Britain is a nation. Why do you INSIST on trying to make me say it’s a language? If this is the only way you can get your jollies then I feel very sad for you
And why do you insist on trying to diminish my nationality? I have asked you this about 6 times not and each time you have ignored it, why because your are ignorant…
Yes, a nation based on politics, a true nation do not have an international boundaries, they don't fight or clamour for their independence, etc.

If English never originated in scholars would not have admitted that, it was first spoken there.

As long as you are not claiming England owns English, I could care less.
What does ANY of this have to do with Evolution?
At least you accept the fact that it started in England. It is important to evolution, because evolution is not a language, but English is, and we use it for communication.

Having completely failed in his evo arguments, Charles is delighting in simply baiting you on this issue. Its surprisingly simple. Say something stupid. Keep saying it no matter how many people refute you and no matter how many arguments they present.
While engaged in this pointless activity, at least your opponents are not making arguments for evolution.
That is his tactic, and its working.
Troll.

Kind of interesting article here, it say's America owns English by might rather than right, because the volume of American English used in the world. it goes on to say.
Scholars disagree when trying to pinpoint the moment when American English stepped on the head of its British mother claimed supremacy.
It seems there was an argument here I never knew existed, But at any rate the above quote^ blows Charles's Idea ...right out the water..lol RIP Charles... America owns English!
But it's all so much BS we all know nobody can really own a dialect.

They owned the language because they are solely called the English. And again, scholars agreed that it was first spoken there.

Here's an interesting morsel for you, the first true inhabitants of Great Briton were Britons

After the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons the population was either subsumed into Anglo-Saxon culture, becoming "English"; retreated; or persisted in the Celtic fringe areas of Wales, Cornwall and southern Scotland, with some emigrating to Brittany.

So the true people from your country are British. not English...lol You true language isn't English It is Celtic and called Common Brittonic..
The English language was brought by German Anglo Saxon invaders that took over your country. Perhaps that why the Scots who are Celtic give the English a hard time, they are the descendants of the true heirs of England, ugh Great Britain . So Christine maybe to right to say you are robbing the glory of her country. It must be you don't really have a clue about your own country.

Technically, by the true internet definition, you are being a troll, and I will explain why.

The term troll was first used in early message boards like Usenet Newsgroups, which were largely unmoderated. It referred to a type of fishing where you would drag nets behind a boat to try and catch as many fish as you could. They were people who would post bizarre or inflammatory or nonsensical things simply to try and get replies: trolling for responses. A troll would do anything to distract a group from discussing the true topic in order to discuss whatever the troll was posting about. If a group spent more time involved in the troll threads then relevant threads, the group had been effectively 'trolled'.

You are a troll because the name of this thread is Evolution vs Creation and yet you insist on debating some ludicrous, nonsensical points about language. Maybe, at some point lost to antiquity, the language discussion had some tangential reference to the Evolution debate, but for at least several months it has not, it has entirely been about language and not Evolution. So, you have trolled us.

I am going to ask you flat out to drop the language discussion as it has nothing to do with Evolution. If you are truly a troll, you will ignore it and continue on with this line of pointless debate.

To everyone else I suggest that, regardless of your position on Evolution vs Creation, we stop indulging this lunacy. It was amusing for the first few months but the fact that it is still going on is staggering (I am including myself in this, I helped it continue). It's just not funny anymore.
