The emperor Tiberius' scribe Tacitus wrote of the rebel Christ. The writings describe the acts of Pontius Pilate and his relation to the events with Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is a historical figure.

<quoted text>History of the English Language
A short history of the origins and development of English
The history of the English language really started with the arrival of three Germanic tribes who invaded Britain during the 5th century AD. These tribes, the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes, crossed the North Sea from what today is Denmark and northern Germany. At that time the inhabitants of Britain spoke a Celtic language. But most of the Celtic speakers were pushed west and north by the invaders - mainly into what is now Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The Angles came from "Englaland" [sic] and their language was called "Englisc" - from which the words "England" and "English" are derived

That i know, Buddy.
The issue is that, there are no traces or what so ever of English in Main land Europe but only in Britain( England to be precise). So, the origin can not be given to air, but be given to where it is visible and that is, England.
And again, Germanic does not mean German, but includes German, English, Dutch, Danish, etc.

as for Scotland, Ireland and Wales adopting the English language, if you mean they were conquered and forced to ADOPT the English language, well yes you are right
as for the United States adopting the English language, its actually because England dominated the colonization of North America and thanks the French and Indian Wars
kinda like how Spain dominated the colonization of South America which explains why Spanish is the dominate language there
your understanding of history both ancient and recent is somewhat lacking
I'm Irish.

I speak five languages.

Eight, if you want to be charitable and include Elvish.

IT AIN'T THAT HARD!!!!

Irrelevant. Fundie Christians to date hate hearing about differing opinions also.

You're right. Your martyr complex does not count.

This is plain incorrect. Egyptian archaeology stands out as the one backed up by the most archaeological findings, something I pointed out to you last year. Those that support YOUR religion stand out to YOU because you have a vested interest in them in particular. I on the other hand have no more vested interests in Egyptian archaelogical finds than I do ancient Christian ones. I merely point out that others have more than you.
But none of it matters as all the archaeological evidence in the world could never prove Jesus had magical powers.
Blah blah blah blah blah!
Jesus existed and he is still in existence. Period.

I have. That is why I know your claim is patently false. Even most fundies have heard of the Crusades. And it doesn't matter who started them, blame can be spread quite nicely across both sides.
Oh, and don't forget the Christian policy of "No other Gods before Me!", whereas Rome in the past assimilated other religions. You think the new Roman Christian Emperor Christianized Rome with cookies and milk? You are severely deluded.
Ofcourse, before Christianity, the Romans worshipped other gods and goddesses, but have you bothered to ask your self why the sudden acceptance?
Jesus!

<quoted text> The only contradiction is manufactured by those who oppose the idea, and within the scientific community, religious people included there is none. If there were it would falsify it and we would have to scrap it. So many scientists try and it is their job to do so, but are unable to because a convergence of the evidence make everything fit. From DNA, ERVs the fossil record , nestled hierarchy .
And the timeline itself support the evolution of life , through 5 major extinctions each time new species emerging. All this fits together in the fossil record.
Your argument is "scientists say it", so we must all accept it as truth from the pristine, well meaning, perfect, all knowing "scientists"
