Examples of babble in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    The basis and power of evil in egoism is the great destructive lie of evil, it gives strength to money, because of it, hidden and open meaningless wars between people will never end. The wars of different minds will never end, it looks like Uncle Ho's tavern in the middle of a bamboo forest, and every mind is there, they all fight among themselves in different styles, all kinds of martial arts: Kong fu, Wushu styles: tiger, monkey, praying mantis, panda, crane, snakes, dragon, Drunken Master Style emitting a drunken fire breath, dexterously wielding a bamboo stick for battle, Aikido, Karate, Boxing, Wrestling, Taekwondo, Sambo, Sumo, Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu, Fencing, Wrestling, Capoeira, as well as Samurai, Ninja, and arm wrestling theories, etc., with words and actions, we senselessly fight each other, all these are children of selfishness that leads us to cannibalism, only the words of the Lord God are truth, which must be correctly understood and understood, the rest is childish babble of the human race. Nazism and racism, homosexuality, and lesbianism, feminism and sexism, all this is inherent only in animals, but not in humans, all people are brothers and sisters who should love and appreciate each other as we all descended from Adam and Eve.
