    I was born blue-eyed and hairless.

    I always find it a bit disconcerting when babies are born with hair.

    Well, as I said, Jesus is their Savior as much as He is ours. They might hold on to the religion because through it they find "the words of eternal life," regardless of how others may have used or...

    That's not necessarily true. We know that Noah's sons had their wives aboard the ark (Genesis 8:16). What if Ham's wife was a descendant of Cain? That would make Ham's descendants heirs to Ham's...

    In English, all the standard dialects are largely artificial, whereas the nonstandard dialects are natural linguistic varieties. I think it's important to preserve the natural varieties — that's...

    This fits in with a number of early Germanic portrayals of Jesus.

    My favorite is the Anglo-Saxon poem "Dream of the Rood." Its portrayal of Jesus stripping off his clothes, grabbing hold of the...

    In the colonial period? I don't think so. The overwhelming majority of the white inhabitants were English, and where there were non-English colonists, they were usually in distinct communities. Only...

    I don't know that it invalidates the polls. You just need to look at the polls a bit sideways and through squinting eyes.

    Presidential polls almost always overestimate support for the Democratic...

    Exactly my point. The land difference only becomes an issue over time. So the real issue isn't the difference of the land, but the time. I don't think we've had enough time (the Anglo-Americans, at...

    That might be enough to create a new ethnicity. In our case, I don't think we've had enough time to do it.


    This is definitely a huge factor. But again, it takes time. Was Rudyard Kipling not...

    Hmm. I can appreciate a desire to show whether a person is actively promoting our preservation through procreation, but I think showing a person's whole family connection is valuable. I would treat a...

    There's no denying this happened in some areas, but to treat the entire conversion of our people like this is, to borrow your words Jonathan, a willful glossing over of history.

    Absolutely right, Jagerzen.

    Christianity among our people has traditionally been very much an expression of our Germanic culture.

    The reason for that is that accepting and following Christ is...

    I disagree. If something like Yankee or American (or Australian or New Zealander) or whatever is what you consider your ethnicity, then I think you should put that as your ethnicity. Perhaps all...

    I doubt that. Spain, after all, was taken over by Goths, but it hardly seems Germanic. And Gaul was taken over by the Franks, a good Germanic tribe, but like all Germanic tribes who moved into the...

    I'm not convinced. I understand that 'nau' and 'now' have the same phonetic form, but that does not prove a loan in two closely related words, especially when both dialects seem to have undergone a...
