They are words that express/carry the same meaning but you are to foolish to see that.

By your own Merriam-Webster dictionary: imbecile 2. fool, idiot.

You can continue to cherry pick definitions and contort the contexts, but it doesn't change the statements.
It isn't my fault you don't take failure well. Are you an Apologist, by chance?

I did not submit the wrong definitions, I even gave links for them.

You are in your own definition a cherry picker and now you have stooped to the spell/grammar checker and rambling idiot. That is expected by someone that is a fool with a baseless argument, which is you. LMAO

They wrote the OT and that's probably why it says the Earth is flat. Those who were sailing peoples, such as the Polynesians and the Greeks, had a spherical Earth model.

So what is your excuse? De-evolution?

Oh? You demean people for their PROPER use of verbiage while failing to do so yourself. I said nothing about spell checking, I was just hoisting you by your own petard.

Yes...problem? The people who were sailing on the largest ocean in the world and settled on a thousand islands in the archipelagos from Taiwan to Hawai'i over the last 5,000 years had a spherical model of the Earth. I realize they weren't Jewish, but I also realize that trying to defend "the Earth is a circle" is batshyte crazy to begin with. <shrug>

You are so literally challenged, it boggles the mind of even the greatest artists who ponder how it is you have managed to survive this long in the world. Using two words of similar or identical meanings like that is a method of showing emphasis on the meanings, which, of course, also ignores the fact that words have multiple meanings and thus it would be logical that one word would be used as supportive for the meaning of another. Such as was the case in this particular instance as the meanings intended were, as follows:

Imbecilic
2. A person whose mental acumen is well below par.

Fool
1. One who is deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding.

From http://www.thefreedictionary.com ... the second source you posted. An addendum, by utilizing multiple sources in your dishonest attempt to project your foolishness you have betrayed your total and complete lack of linguistic abilities. Congratulations, you are a failure as a troll.

I know they had a tool that was accurate to predict how waves moved , but didn't even think they had a cosmological view beyond the surface of earth.
This link is saying......

The Sky was a vault that joined with the Earth only at the horizon, at the edge of the world, which no one could reach.

This ‘absolute limit’ was of course quite flexible and could at any time include new ‘islands’ as the horizon was broadened through voyaging or knowledge gained from stories told by neighbouring peoples. Still, there was not any idea of two ‘worlds’. There can be only one lalolagi, one ‘[world]-under-the-sky’

My links say what I say they say. So I guess you just pick and choose the ones you want. Click on them and read the I definition. That also makes you a cherry picker.

The purpose of multiple definitions of all words, and yes, most words in the English language do have multiple definitions, is to accommodate versatility in the language. "Cherry picking" is not even remotely close to choosing the definition of a word to use, depending on the context. You picked the first definition in a dishonest attempt to discredit another person in a manner that is not only inconsequential, it is reinforced by this very act. Thank you for proving that I was accurate in my assessment of your lacking intellect.

Good grief KK.

Replaytime called you out on your obviously incorrect rendering of the phrase "All that glitters is not gold".

Instead of simply saying "yeah, whoops", no big deal, you waste the next ten posts attacking the person who pointed out your error.

And yes, it WAS an error on your part.

Show some good grace and move on, for God's sake!
