  1. Vennemann's theory is not taken seriously by...

    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.
  2. Cyrus, you keep presenting your theories as 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.

    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,...

    Interesting take on both the Ring of Pietrossa and Ulfila's bible however there are several Germanic cognates visible in these texts, not to mention multiple interpretations of the Ring of...

    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.

    You probably do have some Slavic ancestry from your East German ancestors at some point in time.
  18. Several other Indo-European speaking peoples (and...

    Several other Indo-European speaking peoples (and non-IE) have very similar festivities, I don't see how this connects Celtic culture to the Gilaki people. It should also be noted that the Old Irish...

    I doubt the Celtic population in Asia Minor was ever large enough to leave a significant impact on the genetics of Asia Minor populations whether they were endogenous or not. Is there any specific...

    That's a strong cop out. If this is your counter, it's not very good. Are you literally saying that these so-called "proto-Germanic" people in the Zagros just stuck to themselves in an endogenous...

    I1 has a star-like expansion right around the same time as other European haplogroups, right around the Bronze Age. So for some odd 20,000 years I1 was in a bottleneck and eventually expanded in the...

    This.
    In regards to I1, it being the result of Iranian-speakers is a strange suggestion. So far aDNA of I1 (or pre-I1**) have been found exclusively in Europe (oldest pre-I1 in Paleolithic Spain,...

    Herodotus was referring to Germanioi (Latinized Carmanii) not the Germani of the Roman period.
