    bear on

    Hi,

    It has nothing to do with the mankind history.

    It has not bearing on the mankind history.

    Do these sentences have the same meaining ? I am crious about using "bear on". Is it okey?

    regards.

    regards. Unnecessary.
    It's "the history of mankind", not "mankind history". You could use "mankind's history".

    They don't mean the same thing. The first means that the two are not connected in any way. The second means that "it" (whatever it is) has/had no effect on the history of mankind.

    Note my other corrections above. Be careful with your spelling. We use either "OK" or "okay" but "okey" is wrong.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It can be used as a phrasal verb according to http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionarie...r-on?q=bear+on

    It's not so much that it can be used as a phrasal verb. It is a phrasal verb, according to several dictionaries.

    Re: bear on

    It is a phrasal verb, but it's not the same as "to have no bearing on".
