yes, systems are very important for understanding nature. For example, the 'system' consisting of the periodic table, the 'system' consisting of quantum mechanics, the 'system' of chemistry that looks at acid-base interactions, the 'system' that says that energy is conserved.
The problem is that the concept of a 'system' is so general and vague that *anything* could be interpreted to be a 'system'. And that is what makes your SCPID nonsense. it is re-arranging warm fuzzy ideas with no actual ability to predict specifics.
SCPID is just a general theory as to how ALL natural systems work. We could give examples all day long of how instructions or patterns are used to guide unfolding of life into a given pattern by repeated movements within systems. I will leave this to whoever wants to give us details and bore the heck out of everyone.

They are referred to as English because of the name of the country
"England". The same way people from Mexico are referred to as Mexicans,
not Spanish people which they speak. English came about out of England.
Yes it was accepted as the main language of England but that does not
make them own it. English is the 3rd most widely spoken language world
wide. Mandarin is the most spoken language but we call them Chinese,
Taiwanese, Singaporeans. Do you understand yet.
English is mainly spoken in Australia, Barbados, Canada, India, Ireland,
Jamaica, Nepal, New Zealand, Nigeria, Mauritius, Philippines,
Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States.
So how do you think one place owns it?
" Because of the name"?
That is not true. It is because they started the language, and that is it.
All those nations that takes English as first or second language, does so, because of England. Ok?
So, my friend, think before you type.

That is also a form of guess. It shows that you don't have any evidence what so ever to invalidate the existence of God.
I never claimed to. And you don't have any evidence whatsoever to invalidate the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Did the universe came by chance( evolution) or accident?
Evolution doesn't have anything to do with the formation of the universe. Evolution is not "random chance accident" either. Doesn't matter how many times this is explained to you fundies though. You guys always argue as if it is, because either you're all liars or all stupid. Or both.

Say what, X stands for Y so Y is created therefore X is created?

Where is the logic in that?

You have provided no evidence, not even any theory, you have simply stamped you foot and expect people to believe you

You could as easily say apples stand for bananas and bananas are pears, therefore apples are pears. It makes just as much sense using Chaz logic

Evolution occurs, it happens because of natural mutation and environmental requirement, no creator is required, only explainable scientific fact OK?

Therefore the theory of evolution remains unaffected whether it began naturally or whether Goddidit. Evolution happens either way.

This of course means fundies are talking nonsense when they claim evolution is in doubt, as scientifically speaking it hasn't been for many decades. This is especially true when one considers the fact that fundies (looking at Bo here) have no valid arguments against it so they move the goalposts back to abiogenesis. Unfortunately their arguments are invalid there too, since they can't show how their claims are backed up by evidence, so it becomes a negative argument against science: "Science can't do X therefore Goddidit!"

He's competing with Bo, but I think maybe Chuck feels a little bit sorry for him.

C'mon, gotta be an element of Poe involved in order for Chuck to be a functionally living organism surely.

Yes, jazz music, and the sport of basketball and baseball did originate in the United States.

But you are WRONG about "right of control or ownership".

There is NOTHING that prevents anyone from any corner of the world outside of the USA to begin playing jazz music, or starting their own professional/amateur basketball or baseball league. Anyone can conduct these activities and collect spectators money without so much as notifying the USA.

That you don't realize this is frankly....amazing, and speaks volumes to your lack of education.

The US DOES **NOT** have any right of control or ownership of these activities, nor does England have any right or control over the English language. They do not *OWN* the English language even though that language (as we currently know it) originated there.

YOU are the ONLY person who has ever conceived such a ridiculous notion. THE ONLY ONE.

I'm amazed you've persisted in this delusion for so long.

Exactly. Evolution WAS created... but not by a god, it was created by the big bang. Every thing you see began at that moment in time almost 14 billion years ago, and evolved from there.

The point of contention is ownership of the English language. Not if the people of England are referred to as English. You can't even keep your own stupidity straight. What a dumbass.

No one is interested in giving any details on it. It is your silly ideas and no one is going to do your homework for you. You might as well just admit that you don't have squat and shut up about it.

Finally, an End-It post.

Charles, this is collectively all of our opinions combined, in a well-put answer to your babble. Not a response; an answer. Period. If you continue to raise this asinine issue, it will be clear that are only trolling and you no longer have the credibility to post on this topic. Please, let the language thing go.

Thank you Kong.

The reason you keep having to ask is because it's an incredibly dumb question that nobody cares enough about to answer.
Not to >overtly< infer that you are denser than iridium, maybe it's because they are citizens of a country named ENGLand? It wouldn't make much sense to call them the Liechtensteinish, now would it?
