Split infinitives


Is it OK to skilfully split infinitives?

See example:

From seeing a car to measuring the temperature, language offers a explanation to our experiences and is powerful tool to help us think.

Yes it is OK but you haven't split any infinitives here, skillfully or otherwise.  The only infinitive verb is to help.  Also, your sentence does not make any sense and is poorly written with a number of grammatical errors such as explanation to our experiences.
