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.

From your premise, you are saying that, old English is similar to modern English.
Really? When exactly did I say that? Please identify the posting.

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.
We're *still* waiting.
Charles Idemi wrote:
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.
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.
We're *still* waiting.

Charles seems to think that speakers of *modern* German can understand Old English.
<quoted text>
No, it's false. You've provided no evidence to support its being true.

Are you refuting what wikipaedia said?
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.

This site is dedicated to stupid people as long as you are around. Don't you see your argument is perfectly circular?


Do you realize that this planet is ONLY suitable for the life living on it!?!?!?!?

Yep, if there any Jupitarians and they came to earth they would die instantly due to the extreme heat and the near perfect vacuum of our atmosphere.

If there are any Mercurians and they come to earth they would die instantly due to the planet being far to near absolute zero and the crushing atmosphere.

At least I know my post is a joke, but you do not realize the same about yours.

Ah, you are just an idiot who has no idea what science is.

Do you need to know where air came from? I do. It is not that hard of a question do answer.

TJ, you have no idea what science is or how it is done. All you have is pathetic insults and arguments from ignorance. Worse yet when someone offers to help you all you can do is to insult them. You must have a really pathetic life. I am almost sorry for you.

More importantly, did you see the error of your "logic"?

The world is not tailored to us but it is we who are tailored (via evolution) by the world.

So simple even a creotard can understand it.
