The problem is, you can't just invent a phrase like "ownership by origination" and claim it to be a well-established truth. I've just searched Google for this exact phrase. It came up with 6 results, 3 of which were from Topix.
If it were that simple, we could coin the phrase "ownership by association" and, given the number of people that have associated with you on this message board, I'd say you've been well and truly owned.
Friendly warning.

This idiot has been on about English for the last year and its pure spam.

He gave up on attacking evolution and this crap is all he has left.

Of course, those with an I.Q. above a five year-old knows the answer is
"myth."
Carry on, and you're welcome.
Mr. Useful, can you please tell me how then this universe came into form, because we all know that no humans did that?

They are referred to as English because of the name of the country "England". The same way people from Mexico are referred to as Mexicans, not Spanish people which they speak. English came about out of England. Yes it was accepted as the main language of England but that does not make them own it. English is the 3rd most widely spoken language world wide. Mandarin is the most spoken language but we call them Chinese, Taiwanese, Singaporeans. Do you understand yet.

English is mainly spoken in Australia, Barbados, Canada, India, Ireland, Jamaica, Nepal, New Zealand, Nigeria, Mauritius, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States.

So how do you think one place owns it?

When and if we get to the bottom of languages, we might find much of this does have a lot to do with this subject.

yes, systems are very important for understanding nature. For example, the 'system' consisting of the periodic table, the 'system' consisting of quantum mechanics, the 'system' of chemistry that looks at acid-base interactions, the 'system' that says that energy is conserved.
The problem is that the concept of a 'system' is so general and vague that *anything* could be interpreted to be a 'system'. And that is what makes your SCPID nonsense. it is re-arranging warm fuzzy ideas with no actual ability to predict specifics.
SCPID is just a general theory as to how ALL natural systems work. We could give examples all day long of how instructions or patterns are used to guide unfolding of life into a given pattern by repeated movements within systems. I will leave this to whoever wants to give us details and bore the heck out of everyone.

So how do you think one place owns it?
" Because of the name"?
That is not true. It is because they started the language, and that is it.
All those nations that takes English as first or second language, does so, because of England. Ok?
So, my friend, think before you type.

That is also a form of guess. It shows that you don't have any evidence what so ever to invalidate the existence of God.
I never claimed to. And you don't have any evidence whatsoever to invalidate the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Evolution doesn't have anything to do with the formation of the universe. Evolution is not "random chance accident" either. Doesn't matter how many times this is explained to you fundies though. You guys always argue as if it is, because either you're all liars or all stupid. Or both.

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?

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!"

He's competing with Bo, but I think maybe Chuck feels a little bit sorry for him.

C'mon, gotta be an element of Poe involved in order for Chuck to be a functionally living organism surely.
