Not the point.

But in order to pass on ownership after death it's put in a will. Since "England has ownership" there should be MILLIONS of these to be found.

All you need to do is present one.

Well, I'll accept that as an approximation.

As soon as you can tell me what the ownership of English has to do with the topic of this forum: evolution vs creation.

Clearly you are out of arguments. Everyrhing you thought you had went down in flames.

Bad Science Alert!

Once again, the main stream media latches onto a new analysis of Neanderthal genetic mapping to run amok on the idea that Neanderthals were a bunch of evil inbreds.

http://www.business-standard.com/article/pti-...

Why can't they focus on the important findings about the real blending between Sapiens, Neanderthals, Denisovans and another yet undefined branch of the evolutionary tree which may have been Homo Erectus?...All of which clearly shows that modern humans were casually cross-breeding with their closely related evolutionary groups just as much as they were with their own families.

Tribal life was limited in one's breeding choices. You only have to check the DNA of the pharaohs to see that inbreeding is as common in Homo Sapiens as it was in any other branch of the human family tree.

The message here is about possessions and entitlement. It's prudent to never get your science from a business publication! Don't let those who can't cope with the real purpose of such abstractions pervert the insights gained through science.

This has been a public service announcement for the betterment of forum discussion away from dingaling theories on the "ownership" of language, government entitlements and/or academic authority.

Thank you for your time!

Sadly in all the ancient text it is written how we came to be. But like most foolish people we have been lead astray and made to think that when paper was not available we had writers all around the world solely writing fiction. These people wrote what they saw. What they experienced and what they thought was of importance. The link for even the most naive is obvious. Writings from 3-5 thousand years ago are consistent all around the world. How was this possible? No internet or radio or TV. But yet many stories and architecture very much alike even in dimensions. Coincidence? I think not.

Foolish people led astray by what? Creationist sites and Ancient Aliens reruns?
Ancient writings from around the world were not "consistent" and architecture from around the world was not uniform.

I see that you >completely< missed the point once you saw the words masturbate and ejaculate.

Happy Yule! A bit warm for it but I'll have to burn a log in the fireplace tonight. Honoring Odin, the Disir and the ancestors and all that... Good for the soul.

In everything there must be a first, who then created that first man and woman?

English originated in England, that is why the people are called the English, no people other than the people of England are called that.

That's English.
The same with all world languages. Henceforth, start using that.
