Profanity phrases(adults)

I hope not to offend anybody, but I am interested in how to translate the phrase "born to f***" into one, or as many of the ancient greek dialects suggested(Epic, Ionic, Aeolic, Doric, Attic, Koine). I appreciate any of the help this board has to offer. Thankyou! :D

Neo-Roman Legion VI

I was doing a little browsing and found this site.

http://www.legionsix.org/

I am much impressed with it, perhaps even some of TEXTKIT members are allied with groups such as these.

Latin Prophecy: Grammar Check

I've written a fictional, Smallville-themed prophecy in Latin. I was wondering if anyone could check my grammar and make sure it's sound.

ADVENTUS SUPERHOMINIS
Aetâte quâ aedificia caela attingent, veniet fîlius ultimus generis morientis. Dê caelô cadet infâns quî vir fiet cum potestâtibus maioribus quam illîs cuiusquam hûmânî terrae. Fortitûdinem centum hominum habêbit. Nec lâmina nec flamma cutem suam trânsfiget. Gravitâs nôn hunc in humô tenêbit. Cum celeritâte missilis dê arcû sagittariî movêbit. Ex oculîs ...

Short translation needs fine tuning

Hi there,

I would appreciate anyone's help with a short translation. It's for an open source project. I don't know much Latin, but what I think I want is:

Thanks in advance!
