Illogical and irrational. Cladking you are pretending there is only one answer. The actual answer is that they can be both.

Greeks, Romans, Sumerians all did great things and believed in Gods, Scientists today can be religious and do great things. Why are you unable to understand that simple concept?

Your argument is the kind a sciolist would come up with.

As has been explained to you repeatedly taking small portions of the AE language and then trying to make sweeping generalization about it will led to failure.....so of course you've done just that.

Here are the questions you've been running from:

How many separate words are in the PT and CT? How many words in the entire AE language? Do you even now this? Nope - you don't have a clue. There is no word for chicken in PT - did they not exist? Snails? Sharks?

Now if one took a document like the US constitution and pretended it contained the entire English language - would it? No.

Second question: How many words in the English language?

Again you have no idea - nor do you have any interest in knowing that. Compare that to the AE language. AE will be a small fraction of the larger. So a "rational" deep thinking person would say hmmmm this language has far fewer words then one which is immense - therefore if I take words from the larger one and don't find the exact word in the smaller then that means they had no such concept, word or idea...............asininity.
