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.
And again, in the first sentence, the assumption that there's a god, and that he has a word.

I'll pass on the notion that even if that nonsense were true, that anyone should listen.

There was no Tower of Babel.

People were speaking a great variety of languages for much longer than TWICE the amount of time Bishop Ussher says your 'science book' suggests the universe has been in existance.

There was no flood to disrupt the continuity of the various civilizations that existed for many thousands of years before your flood had been assumed to have occurred.

The Bible can be a fine text to pass on wonderful lessons of Man's relationship to God. But it is not a science book, or history book.

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?
My position still stands, old English, is closer to modern German than modern English.
So, by this, the Germans will have a better understanding or idea of old English than modern English.
Is that too difficult to grasp or understand?

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?
That question is irrelevant.
The issue was/is that, the Germans do have a better understanding of old English than modern English, yes or no?

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?
<quoted text>
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?
You are the one moving the goal post.
My stand was/ is that, the modern Germans do understand old English than modern English, because old English is more closer to modern German, than modern Modern English.

NO they didn't dude. It's been known for some time now that humankind was spread ALL over the earth by 15,000 years ago.

People have been ALL over the OLD world for over 30,000 years.

Tower of Babel was after the flood which has been dated to around 2300-2400 BC...it is only a myth, God had nothing to do with our languages

Most of the English language came from a mountain range in what we call SW Soviet Union and before that it came from a plain in what we now call Iraq.
Wrong...language did not come from the plain of Shinar, that just an old Biblical myth that is thoroughly disproven by archaeology, and DNA

You're the one who claimed that modern Germans could understand Old English. Let's stay with *that* claim. Can you defend *that* claim?
<quoted text>
Then defend your claim that modern Germans can understand Old English.
<quoted text>
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?
Complete my statement!
Yes, they understand more of old English than modern English.
