Curiously, Extremadura, as the rest of the northern half of A Raia on both sides, used to speak Leonese rather than Spanish. Nowadays most of the population just boringly speaks Spanish, but there are still a couple of people speaking Leonese and a larger minority speaking various weird mixes between Leonese and Spanish. On the exact border between Extremadura, Salamanca and Portugal, these weirdos speak a mix between Leonese, Spanish and Portuguese, the "Fala".

Many years ago I used to chat on Facebook with a guy who natively spoke this bizarre dialect. For some reason I really can't remember he was Georgian Orthodox. Too bad he vanished.

Some villages in the Portuguese side of A Raia still speak an arcane form of Leonese somewhat influenced by Portuguese called Mirandese. Portuguese nationalists in general tend to be proud about it, since Leonese was the native tongue of king Afonso Henriques. It kinda sounds like Portuguese hicks trying to make up a language on spot. I love it.

When you're from the west side of La Raya, you are the furthest from God's mercy.

They were probably a type of animal rather than a human. We only share a very small amount of DNA. We have more relative DNA with apes. Yet we don't consider them brothers even though we live along side of them.

The Orthodox do not insist that the earth is older than 6,000 years old, but they are open to it.  Personally, I do not know.  I do know this:  If we came about through evolution, it is because the Lord decided to do it that way.  If we were created in 7 literal days, it is because the Lord decided to do it that way.

Certain trees last hundreds of years? . . .
