English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fire

    Combustion is the essential fact which is at the basis of that assemblage of visible phenomenon which we call fire; combustion being the continuous chemical combination of a substance with some element, as oxygen, evolving heat, and extending from slow processes, such as those by which the heat of the human body is maintained, to the processes producing the most intense light also, as in a blast-furnace, or on the surface of the sun. Fire is always attended with light, as well as heat; blaze, flame, etc., designate the mingled light and heat of a fire. Combustion is the scientific, fire the popular term. A conflagration is an extensive fire. Compare LIGHT.

    Synonyms:
    blaze, burning, combustion, conflagration, flame

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. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
