Oh, thanks!
True.
French and arabic languages are from the back of the throat too, I don't know why being think that's romantic.
You know languages that we don't know sound weird to us. I've always wanted to know what the languages I can speak sound like. I mean are they romantic, annoying, harsh etc...I wish there was a way to know what I sound like to other people who can't understand my languages! I think english would sound like german.
English, Dutch, German, all of them are Teutonic languages so for sure there are similarities. Fortunately, English escaped the guttural stuff.

The really hard stuff is the Chinese, with its tones. I attempted Mandarin, in night classes, and gave up after about 4 weeks. I speak six languages, but Chinese was way over my head.

Starting with the conclusion (that the Bible is accurate) is weak minded. Faith itself is weak minded for exactly this reason.
That is your opinion. Nothing more.

Please tell that to the Creationists, who believe that the Bible is literally true. It is quite possible to believe in a deity and not be a Creationist.
I've tried. They're really stuck in their ways. But just like the gays, as long as they don't bother me or hurt my family in any way, they're ok by me.

I do believe in God.

I am not a Creationist.

Wow, what languages can you speak, If you don't mind me asking?

Yh, they had mandarin classes at my secondary school too, but everyone hated it and stopped going, so they ended them. I was the clever one who didn't even attempt to go to the classes. Why even try when you know you're going to fail, lol.

I think english is also a hard language to learn.

Also, where is everyone?

Spanish, English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch. I would need some hands-on practice (oefening) to get back up to speed with the Dutch though.

Oh, I forgot, I also speak a "private" language.

It's called Jerigoncio. Not kidding. An example:

Copomopo epestapas, apamipigopo? Yopo epestopoipi mupuipi biepen. Epentiependepes?

My family, and some friends, speak it.

I have no clue, but I don't really care either.

The only thing that I do care about, on topix, is; getting people to see religion for what it is. The sooner we get people to read the entire bible, the sooner we will get religion moved to where it belongs... in the trash.

It is funny how people laugh at the jungle medicine man and the gods of old, but they cannot see how stupid their religion is.

Narcissistic personality disorder

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders. Personality disorders are conditions in which people have traits that cause them to feel and behave in socially distressing ways, limiting their ability to function in relationships and in other areas of their life, such as work or school.
Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around psychotherapy
