All English Is Turkish

Cant tell if story is intended to be
retarded or not...
I just happened by a bizzare article posted on BBC news (yes, Im quite aware that most of their news is either completely fabricated or at least somewhat biased, but bare with me) stating that modern European language originated in the region now called Turkey.


Well, Im no expert in human history, but isn't it blatently obvious that if you keep looking further and further back in time you'd eventually come to the genesis of bloody human existance which of course includes language usage.

Besides, the Middle East was the cradle of civilization, in many ways ancient Sumer and Babylon exceeded ancient Egypt in terms of technology and social construct; it doesn't take a genius to work out that when people set out from the Middle East into Europe, they would have brought their languages with them.

Gobekli Tepe is about 10,000 years old and its ruins may have
given insight about humanities transition from
hunter-gathering into farming.
But way before Sumer and Babylon, agriculture also originated from Turkey, a claim which has already been verified by archeologists working on Gobekli Tepe.
Since around the time this site was abandoned also saw various communities throughout Europe begin developing agriculture, I would guess that the language, the technologies and the people all went hand-in-hand.

This 'no-shit sherlock' story on the BBC was brought to you by the University of Auckland, New Zealand, where they have probably been using the research grant for fine dining and expensive prostitutes for the past three years.
