"no language is superior to all other languages in all circumstances"
does not imply that there are not languages x and y such that x is
superior to y in all circumstances.

In fact, the original statement is fairly weak; it doesn't seem to
imply anything interesting.

For example, the original statement doesn't rule out a language
P that happens to be superior to all known languages in all
circumstances.  The "fact" that P is inferior to some unknown language
in some circumstance doesn't do much for those of us who have to live
with existing languages.
