Each year the English language develops about a thousand new words. Over the course of a century, that amounts to 100,000 new words. Since the King James Version of the Bible was published in 1611, perhaps a half a million new English words have been developed.

A small percentage of those new words are tremendously powerful. Here are some examples developed since the King James Version was published:

Conservative Words Not Yet Developed

A thousand new words are developed in English each year. Here is a growing list of conservative concepts, each of which is not yet defined by a single word or two.

Not Yet Developed Terms Suggestions Comments
Unaffected by, or impervious to, the media
easily amused by deceit
the opposite of materialism spiritualism has been its philosophical opposite, historically dualism has been suggested, but it is not the opposite of materialism; "spiritualism" is not a common term and is the "opposite" of materialism

second-generation atheist
deliberate ignorance the term exists; the dictionary does not yet include it
proven wrong, a refusal to admit it This refusal is what promoted the Parable of the Good Samaritan

New liberal words often have deceptive, or nonsensical, meanings. Here are some new words created by liberals to combat conservatism:

fundamentalism 1922 "a movement in 20th century Protestantism emphasizing the literally interpreted Bible as fundamental to Christian life and teaching"[4] From a series of pamphlets called "The Fundamentals" which outlined the movement. Perjorative usage started when the liberal Harry Emerson Fosdick began using the term in a straw man attack against Conservative Christianity.
