Say what, X stands for Y so Y is created therefore X is created?
Where is the logic in that?
You have provided no evidence, not even any theory, you have simply stamped you foot and expect people to believe you
You could as easily say apples stand for bananas and bananas are pears, therefore apples are pears. It makes just as much sense using Chaz logic
Evolution occurs, it happens because of natural mutation and environmental requirement, no creator is required, only explainable scientific fact OK?
Bullshit! no creation, no evolution, period. Livingthings and non livingthings must be created first before evolution can take place. Ok?

Therefore the theory of evolution remains unaffected whether it began naturally or whether Goddidit. Evolution happens either way.
This of course means fundies are talking nonsense when they claim evolution is in doubt, as scientifically speaking it hasn't been for many decades. This is especially true when one considers the fact that fundies (looking at Bo here) have no valid arguments against it so they move the goalposts back to abiogenesis. Unfortunately their arguments are invalid there too, since they can't show how their claims are backed up by evidence, so it becomes a negative argument against science: "Science can't do X therefore Goddidit!"
Every one has their different opinions on that. But since evolution stands for change, it do exist, but with the effort of creation power.

Can anything evolve on its/ his/ her own without a cause or maker?

<quoted text>Exactly. Evolution WAS created... but not by a god, it was created by the big bang. Every thing you see began at that moment in time almost 14 billion years ago, and evolved from there.
Ofcourse, God is the creator of the universe. For the others, it is opinionated.

The point of contention is ownership of the English language. Not if the people of England are referred to as English. You can't even keep your own stupidity straight. What a dumbass.
That is why your idiotic nature will never cease. Go on.

No one is interested in giving any details on it. It is your silly ideas and no one is going to do your homework for you. You might as well just admit that you don't have squat and shut up about it.
Another foolish and stupid response.

Finally, an End-It post.
Charles, this is collectively all of our opinions combined, in a well-put answer to your babble. Not a response; an answer. Period. If you continue to raise this asinine issue, it will be clear that are only trolling and you no longer have the credibility to post on this topic. Please, let the language thing go.
Thank you Kong.
You both are wrong. The problem with you guys are just sentiments. What i said, is true. Go on with your thanks. But you can never bend the truth.

Not to >overtly< infer that you are denser than iridium, maybe it's because they are citizens of a country named ENGLand? It wouldn't make much sense to call them the Liechtensteinish, now would it?
The Fact remains, i am right.

So if someone in Romania wants to play jazz or basketball, do they need to obtain permission and pay royalties to the US? If the same person in Romania wants to speak English do they need to obtain permission and pay royalties to England?
But the rules and regulations that were spelt out by the Us are followed by all nations, so, by that, they are still in control of the games globally.

British or Britain is a term for unity. It comprises of, England or English, Scotland or Scottish and Wales or Welsh. Ok?

Actually there are fairly significant differences between basketball played in Europe vs the US. I have heard jazz, country and rap music sung in different languages in a variety of styles, despite them being distinctively American styles of music originally.

You keep using the term ownership. Ownership entails rights and duties over the thing being owned, be it an object, property/land, or intellectual property. I own my car. If someone steals it I have rights afforded to me by law. If I write a song or computer program or other kind of intellectual property, I can dictate how other people consume or use that property. If England owns English, what rights and duties does England have in relation to the English language? I am from NY and I can assure you that we have properly butchered the language and there is absolutely nothing England can do about it.

Thanks, i really do understand your positions. I hope the others we see this and accept the truth.

Not really correct. The kingdoms were not formerly known as Uk or Britain, it was after the unity that they became known as that. The people of England were solely known as the English to date, even if they are united under the umbrella of Britain Or British.

Discord, do your research on what i just said, and see for yourself. On your response about the language, you are very right. Even if i am gramatically wrong, England can not sue me on/ for my errors.

a debate at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, at which three men engaged in a lively, literate, and deeply-informed exchange. After they finished and the moderator opened the floor for questions, the usual thing happened. The questioners by and large had no questions. Instead they offered up prolix piles of words that led nowhere in particular. Some sought to show off what they mistook as their own superior knowledge. Others scolded. A few got lost in their own labyrinths. The closest we came to a question was the j’accuse rhetorical jab more or less in the form,“Don’t you agree that you are an ignorant buffoon?”


Yes it's a Copy & Paste so don't get your Panties in a wad,...
