<quoted text>If some flying creature like the jellyfish existed, a human would never have a chance of catching one. A jellyfish can do something in less than a microsecond. The dart it fires covers 10 to 20 micrometers in less than one millioneth of a second. A human astronaut can experience forces four or five times the normal pull of gravity,or g's. But when a jellyfish spits out it's dart, the dart acceleration generates a force equal to one million g's.

So you're saying a jellyfish is what they were talking about being cherubim in the bible?

I don't think so. A jellyfish lives in the water and a cherubim is said to be able to fly.

The jellyfish has the capability of doing certain things faster than any other living thing on Earth. My point was, that if a creature such as this could fly, then those quick attributes may work in different and greater ways.

Many Creationist believe different kinds of creatures were made in their sort from the beginning, and they don't always change or become more complex as Evolution asserts that they all have. The Bible asserts that God made them after their own kind from the beginning. The jellyfish is one animal which does not show evidence of change much over it's time on Earth, from my understanding.

Free Servant was giving his version/impression/illusion/de lusion of immortal beings, the Turritopsis nutricula was mentioned (in humour) and he latched onto it like a drowning sailor clutching a straw. And now it seems that the OT is was written by and about faster than a speeding bullet jellyfish creatures

I don't know. What some may see, others have to be shown time and time again for them to understand. It's a mystery.

I hate to burst you bubble (actually, no I don’t) but creatures like jellyfish cannot support there own weight out of water. You can walk along any tidal beach and see the sad and rotting remains of those without the buoyancy of the sea.

Nope, does not work like that. At its most basic level what you have is two poles, reality and delusion. Most people are attracted to the reality pole but there are some few who for whatever reason, chemical imbalance, faulty synaptic wiring, religious belief (same thing really) who knows? Are attracted to the delusion pole.

And funnily enough it is those delusional people who cannot see the reality on the far side of their delusion. So they need to repeatedly “show” people over and over and over and over again just how la la sane their delusion really is in the hope that all those crazy people of the reality pole will understand the mysteries of delusion.

And the people on at the reality pole do a slow face/palm, shake their head and mourn the loss of yet another potentially intelligent being.

But here is a little trick to help you understand the difference between your delusion pole and the reality pole. If it can be proven, if there is actual evidence, if it is factual then it will fall to the reality pole. If it is completely impossible and/or needs magic to make it work then it falls squarely on the delusion pole.

You are forgeting the subject 6f Discussion, the origin of English language. Britain or British is not a language. But Welsh, English and Scottish are.

Actually the oxford English dictionary gives the definition of English as :-
Adjective - Relating to England or its people or language.
Noun - The language of England, now widely used in many varieties throughout the world.
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/...
It also gives as an example of a sentence “The English language over the last 1,000 years has borrowed words from 350 other languages.”
So are you lying again and proven to be lying again or can you actually provide a citation that actually proves your actual stupidity?
That does not change the fact that, English originated in England. Others must learn English before they can understand it. Briton or Britain, is an ancient name, incorporated by England, Scotland and Wales.

No fuo. You can take away English from the English. That is why they are called the English.

And again, that Oxford told us that it began in England. What does that mean to you? Adjective qualifies a noun, so the Adjective of England is English, that is why its inhabitants are called the English. CRY.

According to Oxford and other dictionaries, English, originated in England.
And again, English is derived from Latin, Greek, etc. Does that makes English to be Latin or Greek?
