What is the difference between an idea and understanding?
If a person is said to "understand a language", it means that they can hear it (or read it) and know what the message means.

If a person merely "has an idea on" a language, well, you tell us. What does that actually mean?

Where is the evidence that, as you have claimed, modern Germans can *understand* Old English?

Germans will understand more of old English than modern English.
Yes or no: Do modern Germans understand Old English?

If you were to give a paragraph written in Old English to a modern German, could they translate it into modern German? Without any help?

Yes or no?

Now, where is your evidence that *modern Germans* can *understand* Old English.
No, you're not allowed to backpedal and change "understand" to "have an idea".
Your claim was "understand". Do you renounce your claim, or do you stick with it?
Charles Idemi wrote:
I stick to my word like a glue. I have not change any thing. Having an idea is also similar to understanding in all standard.
Why are you backpedaling from "understand" to "have an idea"?

Is it because you realize that you cannot support your claim that modern Germans understand Old English?

So are you admitting that you were wrong when you said that Germans could understand Old English?
(No, you can't keep moving the goalposts.)

You are the one moving the goal post.
You're the one who claimed that modern Germans could understand Old English. Let's stay with *that* claim. Can you defend *that* claim?
Charles Idemi wrote:
I am still standing on my words.
Then defend your claim that modern Germans can understand Old English.
Charles Idemi wrote:
Germans have an idea of old English
Nope. Don't change your claim. Stick with your original claim. Defend your original claim.

Do modern Germans *understand* Old English or not? Yes or no?

Michael Tellinger has found a site in Mpumalanga which could be the site of the origins of man around 400,000 years ago. See his book 'Slave Gods of Africa'
The Garden of Eden refers to Sumeria almost 6000 years ago Which was the beginning of our Civilisation. See the work of Zacharia Sitchin.
Zacharia Sitchin has been disowned by main-line science...I believe all his theorems have been disproven

Wrong. Dinosaurs, for the most part, were all killed in the K-T extinction event.
The only dinosaurs that survived were the smallest ones - small therapods, many of them very birdlike (covered with feathers, flight/gliding ability). These therapod dinosaurs since evolved into birds.
Discontinuity at the K-T border!!

When People handle the word of God wrong it weems to make other people suffer profoundly enough to say God's word is responsible for the people who handle it. you seem to have suffered at the hands of those who could not live or believe His word effectively to inspire others.
