You are still wrong, regardless of what you were attempting to say. You never admit to being wrong so I assume you were not doing so here.

No, it isn't. It doesn't use the scientific method.
You've been told that before. Did you forget?

Nigeria? The country that has a program known as "SMASE" (Strengthening Mathematics and Science Education)? If mathematics was seen as a science in Nigeria, then they would have called the program "Strengthening Science Education". But they didn't.

Guess you're wrong.

Actually "trinity" is not found in the bible. It is a notion that did not appear in Christian literature till late in the second century. Trinity is not a concept that was foundational or part of the early church.

Old English was more German than anything else. They were not much further apart than British and American today. Germans today can understand more old English than English speaking people today. As is often the case, less established languages tend to evolve faster while established languages have deep roots.

Old English
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_English
It is a West Germanic language closely related to Old Frisian and Low German. Old English had a grammar similar in many ways to Classical Latin, and was much closer to modern German and Icelandic than modern English in most respects, including its grammar.

What common people consider it to be is not consequential. In science it is known that mathematics is not a science. It does not follow the scientific method and that is what makes science science.

Again, Old English is a Germanic language.

As there are only trivial differences from Old German and Old English we can call the two functionally identical.

An algorithm is a specific set of instructions for carrying out a procedure or solving a problem, usually with the requirement that the procedure terminate at some point. Specific algorithms sometimes also go by the name method, procedure, or technique.

You haven't provided any evidence for a "god" yet. When do you plan to do so?
Death is one sure and strong evidence of God's existence.
No one wants to die, but compulsory we must die, why? Judgement.
God is not mortal, he can not judge flesh but spirit, that is why we must all die, to be judged. Man can never stop death, never!

That is not the question. You asked a question about Volley ball, in the just concluded olympic games, that it does not involves the use of Math, and i pointed out the Volley ball's pitch, the scores and the points awarded to each of the teams, etc.
So, what type of expensive joke is that?

Poor logic. Slippery slope fallacy.

Why don't you try to think this through and see if you can put this idea into a logical, coherent format. If you can't mold an idea into a logical form, then it probably is a bad argument.

One of the problems in attempting to do this is it will expose hidden (and flawed) premises.

We have *no* evidence of a "judgement".

We *do* have evidence of constant change in the natural world, including the death of living things due to physical, chemical, and biological causes.

So what is the evidence of a "judgement"?

Angles, Saxon and Jutes, are all Germanic tribes. This tells us that they are all spoke one common language, which is German.
If they happen to speak the old English, may be it was after the links between other nation.
English is original to England.

They did that, because Mathematics is as important as other sciences. In Nigeria, Maths is seen as a science and a general core subject while English is seen as a language and a general core subject.
The same in our university settings, Maths are always under the faculty of physical or Engineering science.

Question: "Is the Bible truly God's Word?"

Answer: Our answer to this question will not only determine how we view the Bible and its importance to our lives, but also it will ultimately have an eternal impact on us. If the Bible is truly God’s Word, then we should cherish it, study it, obey it, and fully trust it. If the Bible is the Word of God, then to dismiss it is to dismiss God Himself.

The fact that God gave us the Bible is an evidence and illustration of His love for us. The term “revelation” simply means that God communicated to mankind what He is like and how we can have a right relationship with Him. These are things that we could not have known had God not divinely revealed them to us in the Bible. Although God’s revelation of Himself in the Bible was given progressively over approximately 1500 years, it has always contained everything man needs to know about God in order to have a right relationship with Him. If the Bible is truly the Word of God, then it is the final authority for all matters of faith, religious practice, and morals.

The question we must ask ourselves is how can we know that the Bible is the Word of God and not just a good book? What is unique about the Bible that sets it apart from all other religious books ever written? Is there any evidence that the Bible is truly God’s Word? These types of questions must be seriously examined if we are to determine the validity of the Bible’s claim to be the very Word of God, divinely inspired, and totally sufficient for all matters of faith and practice. There can be no doubt that the Bible does claim to be the very Word of God. This is clearly seen in Paul’s commendation to Timothy:“… from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”(2 Timothy 3:15-17).

There are both internal and external evidences that the Bible is truly God’s Word. The internal evidences are those things within the Bible that testify of its divine origin. One of the first internal evidences that the Bible is truly God’s Word is seen in its unity. Even though it is really sixty-six individual books, written on three continents, in three different languages, over a period of approximately 1500 years, by more than 40 authors who came from many walks of life, the Bible remains one unified book from beginning to end without contradiction. This unity is unique from all other books and is evidence of the divine origin of the words which God moved men to record.

They were all Germans. By that, they may speak German or probably old English. But the latter is not certain. They may probably speak German.
