English is a language that was first spoken in England. It is native to England, no one including you, can deny that.
Oh for Pete's sake. Are you still carrying on about who owns English?

Interesting:

"( Phys.org )—Despite evidence that phenotypic change does not always occur uniformly across all species members and lineages, single size or shape traits are often used to represent species-level change in its entirety.

Recently, however, scientists in the Department of Geology at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin asked a deceptively simple question – Are (or when are) single traits adequate representations of species-level change?– and answered it by asking another: How often do single traits show conflicting patterns in the same sequence? To answer the second, they examined trait variation frequency in fossils, finding that within most lineages, evolutionary mode (the pattern of evolution, as opposed to its rate) does indeed vary across traits – and the probability of these patterns conflicting within a given lineage patterns increases in proportion to the number of traits analyzed.

Moreover, the evolution of single traits may vary despite a particular mode being dominant. The researchers suggest that their findings provide evidence that widespread mosaic evolution – the tendency for different parts within species to evolve in different ways or at different rates – has occurred throughout our planet's history."

You'll have to ask Charles. He seems to be the self-appointed resident expert on who owns which language.

No, I have not read all of *those* reference but I have read some of them and many others. What does that have to do with anything? You complained about references so I gave you some. Now you're complaining about that.

I'm not inclined to write a long-winded explanation nor do I feel the need to establish any credibility with you. If you have specific questions, I or one of the others will likely address them as we can.

Interested? Not so much. It's just that Charles have been ranting on for a year or two about how the English *own* the English language. I guess he thinks the rest of us have to pay licensing fees.

Darwin Buster One: Darwinians have been dead wrong whenever they have claimed that the "genetic matter of ape and humans is 98% identical." The ape and human chromosomes are remarkably divergent and too different for "ape to human evolution" theory to adequately explain. For example, the human Y chromosome has twice as many genes as the chimpanzee Y chromosome and the chromosome structures are not at all similar.

Then why does the 2005 peer-reviewed research paper "Conservation of Y-linked genes during human evolution revealed by comparative sequencing in chimpanzee" demonstrate that the human Y-chromosome has not lost any genes since the divergence between humans and chimpanzees?

That's interesting. The American english language has evolved to the point that it has become an enigma!

Darwin Buster Two: There are laws of embryology that directly contradict "ape to human evolution." One reason is that genes work together in teams to form body parts during embryonic development. This makes it impossible to add genes to any genome because there is no way to coordinate any new gene with existing genes. Yet "ape to human evolution" requires apes and humans to be able to add genes - for example, the chimpanzee Y chromosome has 37 genes and the human Y chromosome has at least 78 genes.

Of course.
Music theorists sometimes use mathematics to understand music. Mathematics is "the basis of sound" and sound itself "in its musical aspects... exhibits a remarkable array of number properties", simply because nature itself "is amazingly mathematical"
