Yada, yada, lady. I really don't care whether you are a radical feminist. You call me a misogynist for using run of the mill idioms while you simultaneously fancy a language that is itself divided into masculine and feminine. Sounds to me like you're a tribalist with polarity issues. <shrug>
That's one thing I like about Portuguese. You can have a room full of women, and they'd be referred to as 'Elas', but enter 1 male and they all become 'Eles'.

Ahh, Latin...

And I don’t care about your wet dreams and childish fantasies

If you use sexism as a run of the mill idiom then you are fixing a stereotype of man that is outdated and not deserved in this age, certainly not in civilised countries. Perhaps you have a surplus of testosterone, these hormones can be a real bugger sometimes and are particularly prevalent in the man with sexual problems.

Why do you assume I fancy any language? Just because I have proven that many French words have influenced the English language does not mean I fancy the language, it simply means that you have problems accepting the facts that words from several languages (to your dismay, including French) have influenced the English language.

But hey if all you can to is get personal because you have nothing else then go for it.

Perhaps your slave bitch is chained to the kitchen sink with just enough chain to reach you when you shout “hey bitch get me a beer”– right?

Wow Lone, you bring faith to a whole new level here.
"...he has given us his word on how to please him" Seriously? Is this Jim Jones you're talking about?
Have you not heard that it is impossible to please God without faith? The scriptures teach us in many places that we must have faith to please him. Have you read the Bible?

Sorry to intervene Christine, but there's no need to curse - the lady chained to the kitchen sink will deliver a beer with simply "Beer", or on lighter occasions, when the mood is lifted, "Beer please". Calling her a bitch is simply unnecessary.

Your concept of evolution is exactly backwards.

It is not "2 species making a 3rd species". It's ONE specie DIVERGING (separating) into two (or more) species.

The 'donkey + horse =(sterile) mule is a PERFECT lesson in the divergence of species.

Horses and donkeys (and zebras) have a common ancestor long since extinct. As the 'branches' of horses and donkeys move further apart many thousands of years from now, not even STERILE mules will be able to be produced.

*headdesk*

Ow.

That post demonstrates that not only do you not understand evolution, you don't understand common reproduction.

Hybridization is convergent, little one. Evolution is divergent. Two entirely different processes.

I can help you with the big words,if you like.

Ok i can see now that theres no point in arguing on here as most of you act like a bunch of six year olds who arent willing to give up on a stupid point so let me ask you this why do you chose to believe in evolution wouldnt it be so much better to believe in christianity i mean atleast then you have a chance to live hapilly forever if you except God in your heart, honestly that like the one thing you have to do to get to heaven where youll live eternally with a someone whos love is unending,God, instead of what you believe that we werent made for a purpose and that when we die theres nothing and that itll be like we never existed because if we dont have a purpose and we arent ment for a greater good then what really is the point to life except to die eventually

First, punctuation is a WONDERFUL thing. Learn it. Use it.

Second, accepting the Theory of Evolution and belief in a higher power (God), are not mutually exclusive. MILLIONS of Christians -- and people of other faiths -- fully accept the Theory of Evolution and maintain a VERY strong faith in God (or other Deity).

Many of those Christian believers are the very scientists that are on the cutting edge of science, studying the details of evolution.

Please learn science.

I'm not impressed with your over-reaction. I've told guys not to get their panties in a wad, too. Are you ashamed of your sex? Do you have issues about wearing women's clothing? I'm terribly sorry about that, but it's way out of my field.
I agree with Charles that English came from England. Big deal. Russian comes from Russia, French comes from France, Finnish comes from Finland... Chuck gets the "owns" part a little nutty, but then, you seem to want English to have come from France. 0.o
Actually, I don't drink, I don't use words like b*tch and I don't believe in behaviors that you describe. There are probably a dozen religies, rednecks and Republicans you might ask regarding my stated opinions on their treating women like chattel.
None of this has anything to do with Evolution debate. I'm not going to entertain you with this matter any further.

It's real simple people!! The earth was created in seven days by God almighty! Science.. All these so called "facts" are nothing but more of Obama's socialist propaganda! Listen to your gut. God created Man in His image! All of mankind descended from one man and one woman. Those skeletal remains of Cromagnum and Homosapien are just the bones of deformed retards. Read a book!! And that book should be the Bible and nothing else!
