The point Right Divider is making here is that stating that there isn't any indication that it wasn't global ignores the fact that it affirmatively states that it was global.
Your statement is like standing in a room with the lights on and saying that there's no indication that the light is turned off. It makes no sense to say it that way.
I don't think he was being malicious by doing so.
But while we are speculating and giving perspectives, I would have to say that common folks would understand it whether it was said with the precise grammatical structure or not.
Especially when I had already said this:
Back to the topic of the thread, I speculate that the story scripture tells sure seems to indicate the flood was global.
So when one comes along to say "You're not talking right
" just gets on my nerves.
Makes me want to do what Charlene did on an old episode of the TV show, Designing Women
The southern talking, Charlene, boards a plane and sits next to a well dressed lady and her friend.
She says "Hi, I'm Charlene from Georgia. Where are y'all from?"
The lady next to her looks down her nose at Charlene and says "We are from a place that does not end a sentence with a preposition".
Charlene says "Let me rephrase ...... "Where are y'all from -----?".
But I'm probably a little more put off by people doing that recently because my granddaughter who is a late teen now finally got interested in studying scripture, so she went to a theology site to talk.
And some tried to shame her by pointing out that she didn't use proper grammar and (horrors!) misspelled a word.
She felt so low that she no longer wanted to study scripture because she felt she was too stupid to do so.
So to lift her spirits I told her that when people have waxed cold of compassion she should take out her pellet rifle and unload it on their ass.
That made her laugh and she cheered up.
Not to mention that even scripture does not use proper grammar, like Ezekiel switching from 1st person to 3rd person.
What are we supposed to do, tell him he doesn't talk right?
I just think it's petty for that sort of attitude to be dragged into posts on discussion sites where people are looking to learn and share ideas.
I don't need people to use proper grammar to get the gist of what they are saying, nor do I need them to spell every word properly.
But that's just me.
It seems to have great importance to others.
The world is full of diversity.
