(thinking quietly to himself: INTERCOURSE the English!!)

Our hero has just entered the room where he suddenly casts his eyes on a hideous thing! It's an evil brain eating monster created by his arch-nemesis, the Fuller Brush Shaman!!

No time to think, he says to himself! Must act now to stop it from sucking all ideas out of the building. "Must throw my hyperbole-o-rang at the ceiling, causing the chandelier to come down on his evangelical carapace! Must swoop in and use my secret judo moves to disable the disemboweling whips from the beast's judgement wielding tail."

It was all in vain! The villainous hell-spawn scurried away into the shadows, and blocked our hero's advances with his spell of the Useless Bible lore. He was foiled, sent back to the front desk where the librarian testily asked him for the author's full name and date of publication.

He left the building and went back to his original quest to find the Amulet of Disambiguation, vowing to return and purge the archives of that foul hell-spawn.

Nope. Fact. If you want to try to refute it, provide an example where someone took someone else to court for speaking a language that they "owned".
My position's ever, is ownership by origination.

So what's your premise, that any source which mentions an actual place is the infallible truth?
If so, do you also agree that South Park, Colorado is an actual place?
Then here is a syllogism based on your premise:
Any source which mentions an actual place is the infallible truth.
The cartoon series South Park mentions an actual place.
Therefore, the cartoon series South Park is the infallible truth.
One of the strong weapon and evidence of the bible, is that, the bible and the faith, is still alive, despite the criticisms.

So the gibberish you often use is owned by...the Gibbers?

Don't forget to pay the Gibbers a royalty when you speak your gibberish.

Unfortunately for you , this is what all the evidence points to.
But then we have your "belief" , but belief does not make it so.
The evidence always points to a physical reality , despite any belief
it is the evidence that matters the most.
The evolution theory that states that, humans evolved from apes, are just a belief system.

You hate us? I thought Christians were loving people!
But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. Luke 6:27-32
Whoever hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. I John 3:15
If anyone says, I love God, but hates the brothers or sisters, he is a liar...Whoever loves God must also love the brothers and sisters. I John 3:20, 21
Do not return evil for evil. Avenge not yourselves, but rather give way to wrath; for it is written, vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the Lord. Therefore if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsts, give him drink: for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:17-21
If you really want to heap coals of fire on our heads, then, love us!
Thanks and God bless you.
My apologies...

Yeah we saw the PBS special of the Queen saying there was a recall on foreigners speaking English.
They all have to quit , or she will use French on you , and as a last resort she will use "bad English" to the thieves who stole
the language from her royal hiney.

You win, Charlie.
From now on, I will spell "color" and "flavor" as "colour" and "flavour."
From now on, I will call a sidewalk a "pavement."
From now on, I will call a television a "telly."
From now on, I will call a cigarette a "fag."
Now will you drop the whole thing so we can get back to talking about Evolution?
Heh Thom, the American English, despite the little difference, evolved from British English.

No, it is a documented historical fact proven by the fossil record, the genomic record, archeology, paleontology, physics (fossil dating methods),.....

And you are wrong. Origination does not imply "ownership". You misuse the word.

Imagine that.

I do indeed. I even know that it should be written as "PhD".

This will no doubt come as a surprise to those who have an M.D., an Ed.D., or any other doctoral-level degree.
So, after PhD, what?
