    No.

    A word (or anything, for that matter) is only as old as when it first came into being.

    Previously, other words may have been used to convey the same meaning...But you are incorrect in contending that the word is older than he stated - if Webster is to be believed.

    If I understood correctly, he was saying that "marriage", as a concept, has been around for much longer than the word marriage.

    when I ave the time ill look up its first origin for you in my research and hopefully i can tie it to a link but it is in fact older, websters is using its orgin date of its CURRENT definitions

    so both the word and concept are older
    I know what you are saying but I didnt misunderstand him, he is wrong plan and simple but I get the point you are trying to make

    Ah.

    It is entirely possible that you are correct, as I really have no idea.

    a mod looked a while ago and stated at that time the real votes were like 88% no

    dont know what they are now but thats pretty consistent of the range I found to be usually 79-93% give or take vote no

    That would work if they would give us the same benefits of a STR8 'marriage'.There are about 1200 of them.

    Months after this issue has been resolved on DP, it amazes me how many people still care about getting votes than actually debating.

    I wouldn't say "resolved", exactly...More like argued to a standstill, with all parties still holding to the majority of their positions.

    All arguments having been used, however, the debate stopped...although apparently the voting didn't.

    yes its funny spammers keep voting

    on a general side note
    the debate basically stopped because no one has come up with any good reasons to stop it and support discrimination yet
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.
