there is a clear distinction between Nostratic and ProtoWorld. Nostratic is
a reasonable and even likely hypothesis as long as you ignore Joseph
Greenberg's nasty fetish for "mass comparison", which ruins it for the other
Nostraticists who are validly trying the traditional comparative approach.
ProtoWorld, on the other hand, is definitely a theory on crack coccaine
without any sense of reasoning - a cult religion, candy for the mind, a
journey into darkness, an alchemic fantasy.Thanks, Glen! You said just what I needed to hear. Case closed. Also, it's good to hear that there is more to Nostraticism than Greenberg.Since Ryan is on the same web site as Babaev I thought: "There must be at least something respectable or credible about his theories... something that I'm not able to understand... perhaps I'm the stupid guy here, not Ryan."HakanNow if you could show me some of those reasonable nostraticists...
