You're engaged in a red herring. The issue wasn't whether Old English was Germanic (or even whether it was "more Germanic" than any other particular language), but whether or not modern Germans could understand Old English.
Provide the evidence to support your claim that modern Germans can understand Old English.
We're *still* waiting.

Whether you like it or not, the Angles and Saxons spoke the same language on their boats that they spoke right after they got off their boats.
Now, provide the evidence to support your claim that modern Germans can understand Old English.

The Saxons, Jutes and Angles, are all English people. When they were in Germany and Frisian, Denmark, etc. They were not regarded as the English, until they finally get to England.
This is also true of the US. The whites historically, are purely of English, Spanish, German, other European and Asian extraction.

No, it's false. You've provided no evidence to support its being true.
Are you refuting what wikipaedia said?
Or, are you trying to change their statement to suit your aim?

Sorry champ. You need to mature to the point where you understand what supporting ones opinion actually looks like.
So MazHere, tell me where you got your degree in genomic sciences, biology, or related subjects.

Here is another example of a great woffler with a hide as thick as a cow.
This creature above appears to think that many words are better that providing support for ones opinion and not a sniff of current research in refute behind it.
Evos are great at calling for peer reviewed and published research. Too bad they can't find any of it too support their big words.
Then of course we get the fruit loops here with dinosaur quals that have no clue about recent research and then ask me to prove every word I say, like as if they were morons hiding in some cave the past 10 years and remain clueless to the theory they hope to support.
Would you like me to 'prove' again that your famous single celled LUCA is dead and a failed prediction swept under the carpet with many others.
Would you like me to demonstrate again how evos shoved junk DNA down creos throats ad nauseum only to now find out that at least 80% of the genome is now known to be functional.

I as a creationist I do not change my predictions in knee jerk fashion as evos do.
Would you evos like to make another prediction around non coding dna? Let's see what predictive ability TOE actually has. Do you lot of evos predict some junk or no junk in the genome, or are you unable to make a prediction unless it is in hindsight.
I'll make a creo prediction: Over time and with credible long term research all dna will be found to have some function. This is because if we were created there would be no need for junk.
Come on...!! You lot bombed out on vestigial organs, having to change the definition of vestigial from "no" function at all to "different" function because that prediction also failed and these bright sparks did not want to loose face.
Now let's see if I get more than a humble opinion back in response. Let's hope it is not from last century.

I refuted this junk yesterday.

Yea, MazHere is just another creotard posting crap from creationist web sites. It is clear she does not understand a thing she is talking about. Might as well just ignore her.

You didn't provide any evidence. The fact that Old English was closer grammatically to German and Icelandic than to Modern English is not evidence that modern Germans can understand Old English.
Where is your evidence that modern Germans can understand Old English? We're still waiting.

No, that is what we call "an accurate assessment of your fallacious argument".
Charles Idemi wrote:
You are wrong, modern German speakers, do have an idea on old English than modern English. Many people do know this.
So we've gone from "Modern Germans understand Old English" to "Modern Germans have an idea on Old English". I do love to watch you backpedal when you get caught in a lie.

Gee, maybe that has something to do with the idea that "English people" means "people from England".(It doesn't say whether or not such people speak the English language.)

But now, you're trying to avoid your error, which I'll point out again: Now, provide the evidence to support your claim that modern Germans can understand Old English.

Wikipedia (learn to spell it and capitalize it correctly, Charles) doesn't say that modern Germans can understand Old English.

Why do you lie about this?

I still want to know where the different breeds of cats and dogs came from, but none of the creationists have informed me yet.

One God? Power= brainwashing ability beyond human comprehension. Allah.....the same God? Budda...the same God? No......Yes....maybe? Look, humans are nothing more than earthbound animals riding thru space on this petridish.......the makers or engineers are real....humans will never understand.

All we ask for is some evidence for the existence of any god. It does not make sense to worship anything that there is no evidence of existing.

Are you stupid or just insane? Where does air come from? Water, our most important ingredient? The more you learn about our home...the dumber you become. Move to Mars and see what you are missing. We are on the only planet suitable for living on (in our known solar system). I must say that this site is dedicated to stupid people. Reading your posts indicates that you are just a ignorant Freakshow.
