    If his work is undeniable then you must realize he does not argue for a proto-Germanic origin in Iran. Instead he proposed Punic-speaking seafarers from North Africa colonized the North Sea and from...

    So long as the etymologies produced don't support your position the "creators" are quacks right? I won't deny that Vennemann brought up good points (some which require consideration) and I certainly...
  3. I mean people who aren't quacks like Vennemann.

    I mean people who aren't quacks like Vennemann.

    Exactly, apparently extravagant convoluted theories are more important to the narrative of the OP and simple realistic theories with solid evidence backing them are ignored because they don't fit the...

    Maybe, but I'm just skeptical...

    Also from the very same wikipedia page:

    The Bastarnae are just one tribe and their ethnolinguistic affiliation isn't necessarily Germanic, there are indications they may have been an offshoot of the Gauls, or a branch of the Sarmatians,...

    A very strong bias is noticeable in several threads with the same theory being presented, not to mention omissions from quotes to bend the quote to fit the theory and other things.

    Vennemann's theory is not taken seriously by relevant linguists.
    As you said in a previous post, this is your theory. This does not make it fact.

    Cyrus, you keep presenting your theories as fact when there is no evidence stating they are, as tyuiopman said it makes people less inclined to pay any attention.
  11. Hostility and ridicule? Not so IMO, just...

    Hostility and ridicule? Not so IMO, just criticism of a theory that despite everything is continuously pushed in this thread and others with no citations, cherry-picked quotes, quotations with...

    Either you are t-rolling or there is a miscommunication going on here...
    Anyway, why are you being so reactionary to ToBeOrNotToBe's response? They simply highlighted a specific bias they found in...

    If the Gothic mtDNA study is anything to go by, males in the Wielbark complex with Gothic-like burials had shared ancestry with Jutland Iron Age samples (not to mention a sample of Y-Hg I-Z63 found...

    I don't follow anything you're saying, do you have any citations for your claims?

    There was certainly a "classical" Scythian population known to the Greeks, and they certainly spoke an East Iranian language, however there is a larger complex of "Scytho-Siberian" culture that spans...

    The etymology of Visigoth, at least the Vesi part has been suggested (by Mallory & Adams) to trace back to Proto-Germanic *wesuz from Proto-IE *h₁wésus, which would be cognate of Proto-Celtic *wesus,...

    In re to Saxon & Scythian...
    They have very different etymologies (former likely from "to cut" and the latter from "shoot"). The Scythians were of diverse origins with varying autosomal blends with...

    Making claims about what theories I support or not? Without knowing what I actually support? Ridiculous.

    This just really reeks of pseudo-historical nonsense, from misinterpreting Herodotus to anachronism.

    The article cited specifically cites a website dedicated to alternate history. I would take everything within the article with several large grains of salt.
