Ah.
If you go back to the times of Shakespeare, the first stage of Modern English was spoken in nowadays England. They called themselves "the English". In the time of Chaucer, it was called Inglish. In the middle ages, it was called Ænglisc or Anglisc. Before 470 there was no single Angles or Saxes in Britain. Those people lived in northern Germany and spoke Ænglisc and Saxon dialects.
To which phase of English do you refer?
What is your stand, are you saying English did not started in England? Yes or no?
Now, if no, name one place in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, Australia, etc, that were not influenced by England. That takes English as first language or lingua franca?

English again, is English. According to Wikipedia and other sites, it began in England.
The Anglo Saxons from western Europe were the ancestors of the English race. This changes, whether old, middle, and modern, all began in England.

Think before typing. I can say yes, when i meant no, can science very that, in the lab?
There are forces seen and unseen.
I meant, verify and not very.
If say yes outwardly when i truly meant no inwardly, can science verify that yes?
I think no!
We are only moved by what we see, which is outrightly wrong.

Scientist can only verify what they see, and call the others, myths. Too bad. Any way, not all.

<quoted text>We have the scriptures which give us information about the creation event as well as the whys and wherefores of our existence today.
And those could simply have been 'written' and placed in our memories and the world last Thursday.

So why do you believe your particular scriptures instead of the scriptures of other religions? They don't all agree, so most of them are wrong. Why do you think *yours* is correct?

Before the big bang there was the heating up of the singularity if I remember right. So how does something heat up without time? Post me a link on that and I will read it later.
How do you know this? It is not known what conditions were prior to the event or even for some micro fractions of a second after the event. There are of course theories, the oldest being god dunitwiv magic, choose any god from over 2400 claimed creator gods. The later theories are based on reality, observations of the universe today and mathematical models do not need or even include a god.

You can find several links to different theories here.

There are a few definitions but ...the number and type of atoms or molecules contained.
Is what come to mind when we talk about a star.
1 solar mass = about two nonillion (2 followed by 30 zeros) kilograms
1.98855
Density, weight, quantity, catholic church worship
Nonillion... that’s a lot of nothings
The thing about nothing is that they mean zero but all the other numbers would look pretty silly without it

<quoted text>It is your logic that great amounts of time had to pass for the creation of all these things that may be in error. You imply that our Creator can not do miracles and cause things to happen more quickly than we can imagine.
But of course he can.

Which means: Welcome to Last Thursdayism.

On the contrary, that's not possible for creationists. You're a slave to the Bible, your fundamentalist upbringing, and your God (free will does not exist if God does).

See? Your deity DID lie. So stop telling Him He can't. He doesn't care what you think. He has no limits.

Indeed. You take solace in what comes after. You quite literally worship a death-cult.

That's why you're always babbling on about it.

The issue today, is women liberation, that is why there are high rate of divorce and single mothers today.
Which means, like I said, women don't need you.

Yes we can see it in you reasoning foolishly on a day by day basis

I am still waiting for this research on immortality that you insist I read.

And I am still waiting for you to provide one task that w woman can’t to other than e ejaculating semen. Which of course woman is needed for it to be of any worth other than a messy stain.

And you are no so confused and in denial that you must obfuscate to even sound credible to yourself.

In German we tend to form compound words. So it should be "Scheißkopf" but it is just a literal translation of the English "shit head" and it isn't a common insult in German. I don't know why but Americans and English think that "Scheißkopf" and "Schweinehund" would be common German insults. I first heard "Schweinehund" as an insult in English TV. Maybe you are confusing it with "Der innere Schweinehund" (The inner pig dog) but this has nothing to do with an insult. "Der innere Schweinehund" is a voice that makes you lazy and procrastinate.
Common insults in German that mean the same as "shit head" are
Arschgeige (ass violin)
Scheißkerl (shit guy)
Scheißer (shitter)
schweinhund is the name given the English commandos in 1970 s comic books. Die Englander dog, etc. lol stu
