The lingo used now was as far as i know invented by BBC radio.
And that does not change the fact that English originated in England.

Sounds like you are a little confused here.
First you go with the assumption that life has an origin. Not sure why you accept this, universal laws in science or other reasons.
It's not an assumption, it's observed.

Of course it's always possible that either life had an earlier origin further back in time, for which there's no evidence, or stretches infinitely into the past, which contradicts evidence. Occam's Razor therefore would suggest that life's origin occurred about 3.5 billion years ago here on Earth.
EXPERT wrote:
Then you suggest an organization of matter (chemical) theory. Uniformity in Nature? You willing to accept that?
Problem? Also one must be careful that they don't use terms like "organisation" in a loaded way, such as implying that "organisation" requires intelligence. This doesn't apply to chemistry, because particular chemicals act and react with each other in particular ways, leading to predictable consequences. Which is why we know H2O makes water, and never platinum.

Lastly you've stated that it need only happen once. That claim seems to mean that those searching for life outside of our planet are waisting their time.
Not really. Life starting here has no bearing on whether or not life started anywhere else.

And named Britannia by the Romans centuries before the Angles arrived on these shores

<quoted text> Why then do we have Scottish, Welsh, English and Irish in that UK?
Because all of them speaks a different language.
Nope they don’t speak a different (first) language, they have different dialects on one language, in fact they have different dialects amongst the dialects,

And they are known as British because they are British you dumbo.

The Scottish are not English, but they are British (at the moment)

The Welsh are not English but they are British

The Northern Irish are not English but they are British

Britain in the for of Britannia was named long before part of it was named the land of the Angles, later shortened to England

What did basketball? Rubbish. It was played in various forms for almost 2000 years before America was even discovered.

And what has this got to do with your claim that the US are in control of the game globally?

The US is in control of the game in the US, nothing more. FYI, the US is not a global country, it stops at that bloody huge wall you call a border. So your god given US patriotism and complete ignorance of geography are doing you no good whatsoever

Ok,

My answer is May Be,


Maybe they can Maybe they Can't,...


And he told this parable:“A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 7 And he said to the vinedresser,‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ 8 And he answered him,‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. 9 Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!

BS!!! I have learned from experience in the last 4 years, especially in the last 6-8 months that if there is a god he doesn't care. Waiting on god to help is nothing but a dead end and you will die before it happens. I have seen so many people suffer and prayed my @ss off to no avail. I would rather burn in hell when I am dead than watch people suffer when I am alive. There is no point to the suffering if your almighty god you claim can step in and change it. I see no point in the craziness of praying to someone that does not answer. Either he is there and does not listen or he just doesn't give a f#cking rats @ss!!! Sub, Chimney, Poly, Dogen, UC, and even the crazy little Dude,,, it has been fun and I have learnt a little from you all. Danfromsmithville I believe I learnt the most from you in that don't let the little shyt on the internet get to you so bad which I did at first but later learned to let it go. Wishing all the best because praying sure does not get any damn results.
Sorry to hear that you're suffering Replay, just be strong and get through it. Time does heal all.

Nope not OK

It really does not matter how hard you stomp your foot

Parts of the English language were first spoken in England

Other parts of it were first spoken in various parts of Europe

Some of the older words were fist spoken in the middle east

And some of the newer words were first spoken in India, China etc.

And of course the country of England is still a multicultural society and has been for at least 2500 years, probably far, far more stretching back to before the last ice age.

The real problem here I that you do not know how to phrase you insults so they are not insults. What you need to do is earn an extra couple of years of education and then, with luck and hard work you can write exactly what you mean to write.
