“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

OK, you're JOEL PASTAKIA again, but I'm curious. Is it one or more female servants who rinse your "arse" after you defecate? I mean, at the same time. Also, is it just one female servant who washes your "almost supramentalized" pecker after you urinate, or is it like a tag team, where one female servant cleans your pecker and then "tags' another who then cleans your anal sphincter?

What differentiates between the Lord God of Israel and Allah is the observance of the Sabbath. Muslims observe Friday, and Jews Saturday which is the seventh day. This honors the creator God, who created the universe in six days and rested on the seventh. We also don't know what Gods name is and we won't know until the Messiah (God) comes.

"Greece is a language translated as Greek."

How did the Greece get its name Greece?

Greeks (&#915;&#961;&#945 ;&#953;&#954;&#959 ;&#943;)

The modern English adaptation of Greek is derived from the Latin Graecus, which in turn originates from Greek &#915;&#961;&#945; &#953;&#954;&#972; &#962; (Graikos) the eponym of the &#915;&#961;&#945; &#953;&#954;&#959; &#943; (Graikoi), a Boeotian tribe that migrated to Italy in the 8th century BC, and it is by that name the Hellenes were known in the West. Homer, while reciting the Boeotian forces in the Iliad's Catalogue of Ships, provides the first known reference to a Boeotian city named Graea,[32] and Pausanias mentions that Graea was the name of the ancient city of Tanagra.[33] Cumae, a city lying to the west of Neapolis (now Naples) and south of Rome, was founded by Cymaeans and Chalkideans as well as Graeans who by coming into contact with Romans may very well be responsible for naming all Hellenic speaking tribes Graeci.

Aristotle, our oldest source mentioning the word, states that a natural cataclysm swept across central Epirus, a land where its inhabitants used to be called &#947;&#961;&#945; &#953;&#954;&#959; &#943; (Graecoi) and were later named Hellenes (&#904;&#955;&#955 ;&#951;&#957;&#949 ;&#962;).[34] In Hesiod, Graecus is a Deucalionid, and the word seems to be related with &#947;&#951;&#961; &#945;&#953;&#972; &#962; (geraius, anile), which was the title given to the priests of Dodona. They were also named &#931;&#949;&#955; &#955;&#959;&#943; (Selloi)-which shows the relation between the two basic names of the Greeks. The dominant theory on the colonization of Italy has it that part of the people living in Epirus crossed Dodona and migrated to Phthia, becoming infamous as Hellenes the tribe Achilles led to Troy. The remaining part merged with other tribes that arrived later, without losing its name. From there they traveled westwards to Italy, before the first wave of colonists in the 8th century BC arrived at Sicily and southern Italy.

As the Romans strove to dominate all spheres of public life-in their own right, the term 'Greek' took on a derogatory connotation. Horace used it admiringly, Graecia capta ferum victorem cepit et artes intulit agresti Latio (Greece, defeated, conquered its wild conqueror, and civilised the peasant Latins). But Virgil coined the expression, Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes (meaning "I fear the Greeks even when bearing gifts") which became known as 'beware of Greeks bearing gifts". Cicero delivered the coup de grace by coining the truly derogatory term, Graeculi,

Greece and the word Greek are synonym- meaning two words having the same meaning.

You cannot separate the word Greece from the word Greek without destroying the meaning of the word Greece.

And you cannot separate the word Greek from the word Greece with out destroying the meaning of the word Greek.

You keep showing Frijoles that you are illiterate.

It is not witchcraft rabbee, its just that you are an idiot.
meaning you are unable to come the understanding of Gods words.

You keep introducing words into your post that do not relate to my wording in my post to you.

You come to a conclusion without understanding my post to you.

So you post with your emotions rather than with intelligence.

What of bunch of nonsense and BS. Nothing that you cut and paste above supports these statements. It's just another example of your inability to admit that you made a mistake. One of your severe character flaws, of which you have many.

It is evident you cannot comprehend things you do not understand.

Greece and Greek are synonym.

Greece is derived from the word Greek.
There is no other meaning to describe the word Greece from the word Greek.

Greece is Greek, and Greek is Greece.

Only in your warped mind set. Nothing you cut and pasted supports this statement. The fact that the two words are derived from the same root doesn't mean that they mean the same thing; i.e., that they are synonyms. One is the name of the country. One is the name of the cultural affects of that country; e.g., its LANGUAGE.

As I said, it's all a character flaw that is derived from your inability to admit your mistakes, including this instance and your misuse of CE to mean BC.

What is the culture of Greece?
Answer-Its Greek.

The land of Greece is the land of the Greeks.
The land of the Greeks is the land of Greece.

In other Nations you are right, but you are wrong about Greece.

Sorry Eric, you need to make that distinction, and you have not done that.

you do not talk anything, like TheG-D i know. but you do talk a lot like, one of those three angels i have met. which gives me with suspicion, that your g-d is suspiciously one of those three angels. the one G-D hates, even more than hasatan. with a slight bi-polarism hint, toward hasatan.
I pity you rabbee, you are confused.
