This sentence might be trouble once the crowds arrive...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sean_Roy

Может быть, они никогда не придут.

Мы уже здесь


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vedun

... так далеко.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Scubadog_

Now, Duolingo, you know that's a loaded question...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Brandybucks

Мы сами создадим наш мир!

Cthulu or perhaps Gaben, our lord an saviour.

Duolingo is slowly becoming sentient...

Никто. Природа сделала.

For anyone who may be interested: in "old Russian", i.e. Slavonic, the word мир for peace and world are written differently мир and мiр. Though Slavonic is only used in Orthodox churches today, thus making the ancient form of this language not so commonly used or examined today.

A side note, seeing the posts of other users, it remains academically and scientifically unprofessional to make comments of any nature regarding the existence or not of a diety. People, we are here to learn a language and to interact with a respectful manner, not to debate on matters that doesn't pertain to Duolingo.

Hm... So мир is not the name of earth... What would that be, then?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kundoo

Earth is "Земля".

why not "Who did create our world"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RGandhi78

It sounds natural to me only if "did" is emphasized.

e.g. Person 1: "God didn't create our world." Person 2: "Well then, who DID create our world?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Theron126

That sounds unnatural in English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/the_Mr.T

This emphasizes the phrase a little differently. The suggested, "Who created our world" is a standalone question. Your suggestion would sound like a repeat of the suggested question with more emphasis on "Who" or "did" and is less of a generic question.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rekty

Not necessarily. Who DID create our world, Mister Smith? Your god or the machines? (Agent Smith talking to himself - but I just made this up)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alex119913

Welcome back, Mister Anderson. We missed you.

Can создать мир be used like English "make peace"? As in negotiators/ leaders that ended a conflict. For example if children were learning about presidents and a war you might ask things like: "Who was the vice president after he was killed? And who made our peace with the south? And where was it signed? In what year?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Theron126

Non-native speaker, I would understand создать мир only as "to create a/the world" and some investigation supports that. I believe "make peace" would be заключили мир or помирились.

Edit: Confirmed by one of the natives who follow me around correcting misinformation, sweeping up fragments of broken pottery and generally keeping things in order. Помириться means to make peace at a personal level after a falling out, while an agreement between countries to end a war would be заключить мир.

it's unexplainable


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/booshnok1

Oh, so someone didn't like my existential answer. Oh well.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/huedor2077

World is nothing but one of time's whim.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eric590808

But in all seriousness, after playing a GOOD Minecraft world, I always enjoy learning more about who made it, and if they made others.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hypershock

I have different answers for "the world" vs "our world" for "the world" other people have already given the same answer as i would" for "our world"... I have a list of CEOs and politicians etc who have (ab)used their power and influence.

Assumptions, assumptions.
