I don't thinks it matters anymore who broke away from who, everybody will defend what faith they are in and nobody will say we got it wrong.

That's not true.

Ok, that forms another question....and I would like to note, this is simply a question out of ignorance, I am not throwing accusations. how can these churches who break away from the Orthodox Church, claim to be the original? (RC, ACOE, OO, etc)? I fail to understand that.

"Break away"?

Which party is the one that broke away is debated.

They each claim to be the party that was broken away from.
It shouldn't be. It's obvious that we are the Church.

LOL, that made my day.
Be comforted, and have faith, O Israel, for your God is infinitely simple and one, composed of no parts.

We Catholics are the original because we are.  Your Vatican broke off from us at least by 1054, though I say 1015, when your "supreme pontiff" stopped confessing the Orthodox Creed his predecessors accepted from the Catholic Church, and adopted another creed at the Frankish emperor's command.

I'm aware that the Pope allowed the creed-with-filioque to be recited in Rome as of 1014, but I wasn't aware that the Creed was changed again in 1015.
