Re: Christian fist fight at Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Let's go back to Old English, though.

The Old English word weorthscipe or "worth-ship" means to ascribe worth to something.

So, you are basically saying that you don't ascribe worth to a "damn thing."

You've TOTALLY missed the point of my bringing up the longer lineage of the word. Never mind.

What a sad life you must have if you don't respect or revere anything.



Hmmm, so it would seem that the Old English origin of the word means exactly what I thought the word meant! You don't respect or revere anything--to you the world it worthless. You do not "worth-ship" it.

Re: Christian fist fight at Church of the Holy Sepulchre

SBJ, did you just now discover that Old English existed?! This it too funny!

(In case you haven't caught on, you still haven't grasped the point of my pointing out that the word has much older origins than its Middle English "inventors". I'll let you try to work that out for yourself. Pray over it, even.)

No, I knew that Old English existed before. I just didn't look up the origin of this word.

Anyway, thanks for helping to prove my point.

In case you didn't know, not all words originated in Old English.

Glad I could be of service. All I can hope is that any lunatic who read this far into this thread has seen just how awesomely brilliant you are, LBO!
