as for Scotland, Ireland and Wales adopting the English language, if you mean they were conquered and forced to ADOPT the English language, well yes you are right
as for the United States adopting the English language, its actually because England dominated the colonization of North America and thanks the French and Indian Wars
kinda like how Spain dominated the colonization of South America which explains why Spanish is the dominate language there
your understanding of history both ancient and recent is somewhat lacking
I'm Irish.

I speak five languages.

Eight, if you want to be charitable and include Elvish.

IT AIN'T THAT HARD!!!!

Irrelevant. Fundie Christians to date hate hearing about differing opinions also.

You're right. Your martyr complex does not count.

This is plain incorrect. Egyptian archaeology stands out as the one backed up by the most archaeological findings, something I pointed out to you last year. Those that support YOUR religion stand out to YOU because you have a vested interest in them in particular. I on the other hand have no more vested interests in Egyptian archaelogical finds than I do ancient Christian ones. I merely point out that others have more than you.
But none of it matters as all the archaeological evidence in the world could never prove Jesus had magical powers.
Blah blah blah blah blah!
Jesus existed and he is still in existence. Period.

I have. That is why I know your claim is patently false. Even most fundies have heard of the Crusades. And it doesn't matter who started them, blame can be spread quite nicely across both sides.
Oh, and don't forget the Christian policy of "No other Gods before Me!", whereas Rome in the past assimilated other religions. You think the new Roman Christian Emperor Christianized Rome with cookies and milk? You are severely deluded.
Ofcourse, before Christianity, the Romans worshipped other gods and goddesses, but have you bothered to ask your self why the sudden acceptance?
Jesus!

do you mean why do we die? because we are animals and all animals die.
This is a dishonest response. Do we as animals or humans really or truly want to die?

<quoted text> The only contradiction is manufactured by those who oppose the idea, and within the scientific community, religious people included there is none. If there were it would falsify it and we would have to scrap it. So many scientists try and it is their job to do so, but are unable to because a convergence of the evidence make everything fit. From DNA, ERVs the fossil record , nestled hierarchy .
And the timeline itself support the evolution of life , through 5 major extinctions each time new species emerging. All this fits together in the fossil record.
Your argument is "scientists say it", so we must all accept it as truth from the pristine, well meaning, perfect, all knowing "scientists"

And we must never, ever question the scientists motives, logic, or "observations". We MUST accept and obey!

again, i said written at the time your Jesus proportedly walked the Earth, not 100 years later

Histories (Latin: Historiae) is a book by Tacitus, written c. 100–110, which covers the Year of Four Emperors

Josephus not only wrote about Jesus decades after he was said to have existed, while living in Rome, but you miss the context entirely. H e only references Jesus in stories about James, and John the Baptist

would you think that if this jesus character was all that important, he would have wrote something SPECIFICALLY ABOUT HIM???

no, that is not how science works. in fact it is the opposite, everything is up for peer review and rigorous examination.

you shouldn't talk of a field of study you clearly do not understand...
