Why do you insist on trying to diminish my nationality and culture?

And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!

Why are you so dumb headed. In Britain, we have English, which is England, Scottish, which is Scotland and Welsh, for Wales.

English is a language that was first spoken in England. By that they are English. Ok?

BS!!! I have learned from experience in the last 4 years, especially in the last 6-8 months that if there is a god he doesn't care. Waiting on god to help is nothing but a dead end and you will die before it happens. I have seen so many people suffer and prayed my @ss off to no avail. I would rather burn in hell when I am dead than watch people suffer when I am alive. There is no point to the suffering if your almighty god you claim can step in and change it. I see no point in the craziness of praying to someone that does not answer. Either he is there and does not listen or he just doesn't give a f#cking rats @ss!!! Sub, Chimney, Poly, Dogen, UC, and even the crazy little Dude,,, it has been fun and I have learnt a little from you all. Danfromsmithville I believe I learnt the most from you in that don't let the little shyt on the internet get to you so bad which I did at first but later learned to let it go. Wishing all the best because praying sure does not get any damn results.
Sorry to hear that you're suffering Replay, just be strong and get through it. Time does heal all.

Nope not OK

It really does not matter how hard you stomp your foot

Parts of the English language were first spoken in England

Other parts of it were first spoken in various parts of Europe

Some of the older words were fist spoken in the middle east

And some of the newer words were first spoken in India, China etc.

And of course the country of England is still a multicultural society and has been for at least 2500 years, probably far, far more stretching back to before the last ice age.

The real problem here I that you do not know how to phrase you insults so they are not insults. What you need to do is earn an extra couple of years of education and then, with luck and hard work you can write exactly what you mean to write.

Then why aren't Brazilians called Portuguese, since that is their official language? Why am I not called English by any other than the Amish?
The fact remains that you are using inductive logic - and even that rather poorly, as you are bending context and linguistics to confuse yourself even further. A dog has four legs and a horse has forelegs, therefore a dog is a hoarse.

Sounds like you are a little confused here.
First you go with the assumption that life has an origin. Not sure why you accept this, universal laws in science or other reasons.
Then you suggest an organization of matter (chemical) theory. Uniformity in Nature? You willing to accept that?
Lastly you've stated that it need only happen once. That claim seems to mean that those searching for life outside of our planet are waisting their time.
I am starting with the idea that we are trying to find the best explanation that fits the evidence available. If there was a point when there was no life on Earth and now there is, quite obviously, life on Earth, then it is fairy safe to conclude that something happened to change that state. That something is what scientists are investigating.

As for chemical organization, I wasn't assuming it, I was saying that it is a worthy field of investigation. We know life right now is strongly dependent on chemistry and chemical interactions for pretty much all functions. So studying the possibility that life began through a chemical interaction seems a pretty logical fiend of study.

As for me saying it only needed to happen once, that was poorly worded on my part, for which I apologize. What I was trying to say was that if life did indeed begin by a chemical process, even though that specific process might be incredibly rare or unlikely, it only needed to happen once to start the chain of life on Earth. I certainly wasn't trying to imply that life is unique to Earth.

Seeing as we have agreed that origination does not equal ownership by any definition of the word ownership I think it is safe to let the matter drop completely. This thread is too convoluted as it is.

Which has nothing to do with anything. England doesn't own English in any meaningful sense of the word own. You admitted as such. So we can safely let it drop.

Off topic, and @Discord,

I see you're from St. James, Long Island (according to your Location). I used to sail into Stony Brook on my Hobie-cat all the time (when I was a kid - I'm from Mystic, across the sound). Beautiful town, miss those days dearly. Small world!
