The English language is a language. English black pudding is not a language, Red phone boxes are quintessentially English but not a language, Paddington bear and royal crown derby pottery are English but not a language

Please note that the English language did not originate in England but evolved out of various languages

Please supply links to those scholarly sources you claim overrule the links I have already given you to scholarly sources?

The English language has evolved and is still evolving.

<quoted text> Yes, a nation based on politics, a true nation do not have an international boundaries, they don't fight or clamour for their independence, etc.
Ahh so you now agree that Britain is a nation at last. Thank you.

This is of course why, alongside the word “nationality” on my birth certificate, driving licence and passport is the word BRITISH

However for you edification a nation is defined as “a large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular state or territory.”

Note, no mention of politics. And FYI, the UK is a democracy and so political freedom is a given.

Please advise why, besides a British government at Westminster, there is a Scottish government at Holyrood, a Welsh Assembly at Senedd and a Northern Irish Assembly at Stormont.

That don’t really sound a lot like you much hyped political unity to me.

Tell me about the American Revolution? Oh you can’t because it screws up you mouthing garbage and you probably know absolutely nothing about it any way

And still the English language is evolving…

I notice you did not spell the word truth with a capital T to distinguish the christian version of truth from the real meaning of the word…

Right so although there is absolutely no evidence of any gods then the abrahamic god is Truth

Despite the fact that DNA totally disproves the adam and eve story then the we should ignore the science and believe in the bronze age babble Truth

Despite the fact that there is no evidence of a world flood.
That the ark described in the babble is impossible to build as described even with todays technology.
That DNA (that old bugbear again) proves the godly genocide to be impossible.
That the ark as described cannot possibly hold 20 million species for over a year.
That feeding 20 million species for over a year requires such considerable space for the food than could possibly be available in the ark

Despite the fact that there is no evidence that jesus lived as described in the babble and there is no evidence that someone of that name was even born to Mary

Despite all that we all should fall over and worship bronze age idiocy?

OK, you convinced me, where do I sign up….

No one is disputing that, you jackass. You have claimed England has ownership of the language. The is a distinct difference between origination and ownership. A simple concept that a simpleton like you cannot understand.

You need to sue the ass off whoever taught you English.

Survey: One in five Americans has no religion

By Dan Merica, CNN

Washington – The fastest growing "religious" group in America is made up of people with no religion at all, according to a Pew survey showing that one in five Americans is not affiliated with any religion.

The number of these Americans has grown by 25% just in the past five years, according to a survey released Tuesday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

The survey found that the ranks of the unaffiliated are growing even faster among younger Americans.

Thirty-three million Americans now have no religious affiliation, with 13 million in that group identifying as either atheist or agnostic, according to the new survey.

Pew found that those who are religiously unaffiliated are strikingly less religious than the public at large. They attend church infrequently, if at all, are largely not seeking out religion and say that the lack of it in their lives is of little importance.

It says the Earth is a flat square circle at the center of a geocentric universe which revolves around it, sun included. It also says that donkeys and lizards talk. True, right?

Or are you about to prove to all of us (again) that there's no such thing as a Biblical literalist?

Not that **you personally** have done that before, to my knowledge at least.
