Disturbing Prediction

Postby Yaziq » Tue 07 Feb 2017 9:11 pm

I saw a prediction for the year 3016. According to whoever issued this, by the year 3016 the only languages still being spoken will be English, Mandarin, and Spanish. First of all, in a thousand years will English still be recognizable as English? Imagine Hindi becoming an endangered language. I can't. Will English be spoken in what is now the territory of the Russian Federation? Not likely! I would like to see someone defend this theory.
