Agreed! Very interesting indeed!

There's was a similar 'bog people' discovery not too far from me in Orlando.

Some good old English words that describe the constant ongoing crap you produce and many of them even originating from the Anglo-Saxon spoken in Denmark and northern Germany at the times before the Angles, Saxons and Jutes migrated to England.

Why do you have EVERYTHING wrong?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USA#Population , I quote: "The United States has a very diverse population—31 ancestry groups have more than one million members.[172] German Americans are the largest ethnic group (more than 50 million)- followed by Irish Americans (circa 35 million), Mexican Americans (circa 31 million) and English Americans (circa 27 million)". the sources referred to are the US census of 2009.

I think you should meditate a bit on the reason why you've got everything wrong.

This priceless example of creationist's reasoning alone:
1) "German is not the largest ethnic group in the US" - ignorance because Germans ARE the largest ethnic group in the USA - according to the US 2009 census;
2) "if it is German, it would have been the major language in the US, but not" - here is a list of Americans of German ancestry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_German_A... . WHAT language are they speaking in daily life, do you think?
3) and of course, the most priceless one: "Wake up". ROFLMAO!!!!

Point of correction, there was no England before the tribes set their foot on Britain. England was named after them by them. Understand that. Those in mainland Europe were later absorbed to become other people. So, ascribing the origin to an area where there is no firm evidence is wrong.

Yes, there is no evidence, but evidence based on history. Can you show me any real evidence of English in Denmark and Germany? None, but only history. Why? Because those Germanic tribes over there have been absorbed to become Germans and Danish, and more over, there was nothing like Germany or Denmark then.

And lastly, until you understand this, Anglo Saxons are also known as the English, so, therefore, Anglo saxons words are English, that is why, whether old, middle or modern, it was and is still known as English. So so called Denmark and Germany were later absorbed to become Danish and Germans.

Irrelevant for the 100th time, we are talking here about the origin of the English language and NOT about the name of the island itself.

Because you can not disprove the creator. Do you even know what is going to happen to you or any one tomorrow? None. But that tomorrow must come, because it is already planned. Guessing and what have you, can never disprove a creator, because he truly exist.

And yet the major language remain English. Why not German? Were they absorbed by the English population? Get this, there are many people of English origin or partly who prefer the title, " American".
Get that, the largest ethnic group, is English. The evidence is there to date.

NOT addressing the things I said about it AGAIN, just continuing the crap by copycatting your own rubbish.

The English language, like all Germanic languages, originates from the areas of modern Denmark and northern Germany.

And you can continue copycatting your tattles and baloney whatever you like but it does not change the fact that the Germanic languages originate from Denmark and northern Germany.
And English happens to be among those (apart from the huge influences of French, Latin and other sources of course). And the French and Latin parts of the linguistic inheritance of English originate from a small area around Rome, called Latium, nowadays Lazio.

Anglo-Saxon words not only made it in English but also in German, even MORE than in English. Pertaining vocabulary, modern German is FAR MORE "Anglo-Saxon" than English. Like Dutch. Or Danish to a high extent. And Frisian not to forget.

Irrelevant. I have showed it also to you the 100th time why you are wrong. We don't need stories, but real evidence and that is seen in England to date.

Charles, your idiot logic is just making you appear to be an ass.

Grow up and grow out of the concrete operational phase. Grown-up need to master abstract thinking.

No. English is derived mainly from German. Therefore the Germans are the rightful owner of the English language.

They want you to start paying 100 euros per word for writing in their language.

You currently owe Germany 50,000,000 euros. If you send the money directly to me I think I can get them to settle for 10% of that. You can thank me after your check clears.
