They don't speak it fluently, but they can speak it.  It is speech.

Sure, they can "speak" words, but they don't understand it.

As stated, my program can print out words. Hell, I can make a SAPI call to make it say the words through your computer speakers.

But if you really want to argue the point, I'll go onto another assumption the riddle makes: there is not a banana in your mouth imparting you from speaking, nor is the room filled with vampires or lava.

If they didn't understand what it was then they wouldn't say it.

So you agree the riddles are unsolvable without assumptions?

You're not assuming that they understand language.  You know they do because the riddle tells us so.

The riddle doesn't say there isn't a banana in your mouth.

Ok, so any answer to the riddle would need to include. "If I had a banana in my mouth, I'd need to take it out." Now you have to add EVERY conditional statement that might hinder you, such as having a tomato in your mouth, a chair in the way, etc.

Or you can just assume nothing is hindering you.

But whatever, it clearly shows you have ruined the spirit of riddles. Riddles, of course, require assumptions to be answered, just as everything does. The world operates on assumptions, and if we wish to be efficient, we must.

No answer to this riddle would need to include what you're talking about.  Their understanding of language is an implication; not an assumption.

Or you can just assume nothing is hindering you.
You imply nothing is hindering you; not assume.

"The spirit of riddles."  I didn't know Atheists believe in spirits ^^.

I'm not talking about them understanding English, since you seemed to want to debate that. However, you can't speak at all with a banana in your mouth.

Quote

Nowhere is it implied there isn't a banana in your mouth. Unless you argue otherwise; please, enlighten me where it is implied you don't have a banana in your mouth.

This statement doesn't qualify me to being retarded.  Explain yourself in detail or refrain from name calling.

I already answered this.

Trying to speak with a banana in my mouth isn't related to the riddle.

The riddle doesn't mention a banana in my mouth.

I'm done with this topic, Tolli doesn't even respond to posts.

So it is henceforth concluded I answered God-slayer mode of the riddle and Tolli did not, as indicated by everyone but Tolli.

I have replied many times.

I just proved why you were wrong and the only explanation to your proof of answering God-Slayer mode is by assuming everyone but me believes you are right.  No one else is posting quality arguments to this thread except you ^^.  The quality went downhill once you weren't able to define what you mean logically and resorted to using name calling.
