Considering we have fossil evidence, yes.

You don't understand it anyway. That's why we've been asking for years for the "scientific theory" of creationism and never got an answer.

Don't hold out much hope. Many fundies have been here for years and not learned a thing. Fundies don't wanna learn. And I don't care about convincing them as they are beyond help. So all I do is demonstrate where they go wrong and let others decide for themselves.

I hope I will be considered an independent thinker. But I am certainly of evo persuasion at the moment. Still I am open minded. My position is really only the sum total of all the evidence I have seen to date. Insults seem mostly unnecessary as far as I can see. I am curious how it gets to that however. Aside from some good humoured jokes, I generally have a distaste for insults.
We don't tend to worry about insults. They insult us, we insult them, no-one remembers who started it... it's kinda like real world wars but on the internet. But since it's only words we learn to grow a thick skin.

Fundie call me dunderhead? Meh.(shrug)

OH, I fully understand it, but I don't expect there will ever be a scientific theory concerning miracles.

It's not okay to be offended by the dark lies proclaiming that God is evil? MikeF uses worse tactics to express the same desire does he not?
What's not to worship? Do you enjoy being selfish? Do you enjoy being selfless? Do you want to love to the greatest capacity given to you? Or do you want to quench everyone who tries to love with the spirit of God alive in them?
Worse tactics? Show me where I was wrong.

As a result of that, there would be some sort of contacts( in the form of marriage) between the Saxons and the locals( Britons).
Marriage of what? Axes and skulls?

Until the Saxons rebelled against the royals, I doubt they married any of their enemies..... and they rebelled because they didn't get paid, not because they wanted to marry Pict gals.

That fascinating that you've managed to trace your ancestry back that far - I only got to the late eighteenth century with mine and a bod hanged for stealing a sheep!
I can go right back (indirectly, through family names and clan) on my fathers side of the family to the 13th C. Olaf the Black “king of the isles and mann”. Directly to 1532.

My mothers side is even more interesting with direct links to one of the biggest regions of France, relationship to Eleanor of Aquitaine and Richard the lion hearted granting the family an addition to the family crest and a county in England for help during his crusade.

Alas all gone…

We also have a black sheep in the early 18c hanged as a highwayman.

Just MORE of ridiculous attack junk--typical from types that do so to that they hate or do not comprehend.
Still think you're WRONG on some other of your inane statements as well, because MANY people learn plenty of GOOD things from books like Bible (and the Bible)-daily. Just because YOU choose NOT to, does NOT mean every one else does.
Than GOD-because mean people who just want to be rotten--- suck eggs in book :-).
But do enjoy your rotten eggedness.
Ignored on the grounds that you are a hypocritical gibbering godbot hater with nothing to add to the discussion but inane abstractions and lies.

Are you saying that the Pict girls are less( un) attractive?
That used to happen then and even now. Think.

That is a made up story whether documented or not.
The English who are from England brought the English language to the Americas( North America).

The link is to a trailer for the movie Paul.

And, yes, it is meaningless gibberish.

<quoted text>Have you heard of Gunpoint. From what I have seen in the media, there is a lot of crime there. Numerous people have been robbed at Gunpoint. I would think that tourism would be off there, but for different reasons.
There are some commercial opportunities though like....."my parents were held at gunpoint and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" for example...

Are you now saying that the founding fathers in America are really not the true Americans, but only the native Americans?
The word "American" has multiple meanings. The correct meaning depends on the context.

1. It can mean an American Indian from either North America or South America.

2. It can mean someone who was born in or who is living in North America or South America.

3. It can mean a citizen of the United States.

The native Americans were Americans under the first meaning and under the second meaning.

The Founders were Americans under the second meaning and, after the creation of the United States, under the third meaning.

Yes, I understand that you keep making an error when you confuse "English people" with "English language".
