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.
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.

Find out the meaning of island, the island of Britain and Britain
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.

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?

Bollocks I showed you what the Oxford English dictionary has to say on the matter, I gave you the link to check for yourself and do you check, no you rant irrelevancies and lies and ignore the proven facts. You are a moron of the first order, even by the high standards imposed by your stupidity you are a noteworthy classic in the field

Here let me show you the link AGAIN

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/...

and let me repeat what they say AGAIN

Adjective - Relating to England or its people or language.
Noun - The language of England, now widely used in many varieties throughout the world.

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.”

Why do you have such difficulty understanding that to the extent you have to lie about it?

And even when you are proven top be lying you still lie and compound the lie, and the only reason I can think of for someone being that bloody stupid is because they are completely, off there rocker bloody stupid.

Do you mean theories or do you mean guesses?

Theories are for the most part based on general principles, observation and measurement, so reality

The guess that immortal jellyfish can fly belongs squarely in the loopy loo pole.

Oh you moron, you are the one who went for the racist slurs and innuendo because you were getting you’re a$$ spanked, You were the one who brought in Britain because you believed it strengthened your case and now you realise just the opposite is the case you want to scuttle back to your shelter.

I know that. I was just saying, the way that creature works could be how other as yet unknown ones could. If the kind of speed a jellyfish has to shoot darts was some how used for propelling the creature, it may not even.need to be a bird of a feather to fly.

And again, wrong. I asked a question in the Darwin's crowd thread, " why death", and no one seems to answer that question. That death proves God's existence. It tells us that there is a superforce above us.
