Etruscans Proto-Turks?


Interesting video I found. It shows famous quotes from anthropologists.


Feel free to tell your thoughts.

OK I watched about 4 1/2 minutes of this but then it said the Turanians were the original inhabitants of the Middle East before the Semitic and Aryan peoples. And it says that the typical Turanians were the Egyptians, Chinese and Japanese, I'm not sure what to make of that statement. It also mentions the Hittite names and religion, the Hittites were Turanian? It doesn't even stop there but says the Turanian were the earliest of races and seems to imply that all languages come from them. This is just too wild.

The article says that they were from Turkey but they weren't Turks. That doesn't make them proto-Turks any more than the Mayans were proto-Spanish.

It doesn't say anything. It only quotes sources from various places about Etruscan.

The bottom line is whether or not there is a connection between Etruscans on linguistic, cultural and genetic level. Ignore the rest.

For example:
"Hence the apparent connection of the Etruscans with other turanian languages, such as the scythic, the Finnic.. Like all Turanians, the Etruscans were TOMB-Building race. At a later period by colanisation. They received a Greek element of civilisation, but the people STILL remained essentially Turanian in their feelings and habits (Hodder M, Westtropp, Handbook of Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Archeology, Kessinger, 2003, p.483)
