WTF is a "only speaking British nation"?
Are there other British nations that do not speak?
Or should it be the "only British speaking nation"?

In the last case, you are - again - wrong.
The word "British" refers to the Celtic inheritance of Britain.
The "British" languages are Celtic languages. These include Welsh, Cornish (extinct) and Breton. Breton is spoken in Brittany, France. It is spoken by former immigrants from England, who escaped the Anglo-Saxon conquest.

Hence, England is not the only nation where "British" languages are spoken.

<quoted text> Point of correction, English started in England, using British isles simply means all the nations that makes up the island. And again, the Anglo Saxons are the same as the English people.
No, English language started in Denmark and northern Germany.
As explained SEVERAL TIMES now and left UNADDRESSED by you.

The Anglo-Saxon people are historically NOT the same as the English people.
VERY EXPLICITLY N O T.
Nowadays English peoples are descendants from:
1) Celtic people, the Britons, HENCE the "second" name "Britain"
2) Angles, Saxons and Jutes, immigrants from areas of nowadays Denmark and northern Germany, which brought Anglo-Saxon (AKA Old-English) with them
3) the Romans who stayed after the retreat of the Roman army in 426
4) immigrants from Scandinavia (Vikings)
5) immigrant from France (Normandy) who spoke early French but actually were a mix of the former Celtic Gaulish inhabitants from France and Germanic tribes (hence NORmandy)
6) Irish Goidelic speaking immigrants (Goidelic is also a Celtic language but of another branch than Briton, the main dialect current Gàidhlig or Gaelic).

You are wrong about EVERYTHING your muddled head produces.

Obviously you've never researched any of these "anomalies" beyond what you've read there. Let's take you Coso Artifact, the spark plug. What they found was a concretion not a geode. And a fair common occurrence.

"Experts estimated that it should have taken about 500,000 years for this fossil-encrusted nodule to form..." What experts?

The dating isn't flawed, your blind acceptance of new-age woo-woo is.
obviously you are correct that i have not researched them. and obviously you did not read my other post below that where i said "i think it holds some truth. not sure yet how much though. i would have to research those 10 things and go from there."

I read and answer posts in the order that they are in but, no, I didn't notice your later post. In any event, you seem to agree that further research would be a good idea.

Seriously Charles, is this ALL you can discuss? Why not just state that English was created by GOD and leave it at that?
But since you claim to be an expert on languages, riddle me this - what language does your Bible claim was spoken by Adam and Eve?
I think most scholars say it might have been the Hebrew language, which is known today as a member of the Northwest Semitic Canaanite language.

I know of one that claims it was Jacobean English and that the KJV is the only correct interpretation because of that.

OK, and they were created (poof) with this language pre-burned into their ROM? So "scholars" agree that A&E appeared, middle-aged and conveniently able to communicate with a complex language? And you're OK with this?

Paranoid and self absorbed much? I was referring to the concept of hell and the implications of religion. Yes, I know you won't believe that because the world revolves around you, so think what you want. It is of no concern to me.

Yes, I am an idiot. I know you aren't here to pester and annoy people. You aren't here to argue. You have said this. Thanks for clearing that up.
