+++There you go again...an Australian doctor meets a dirt poor man who was also trained by idiotic priests and mullahs and you want to discuss things with HIM!
>>>>>>> Aaaah, that was my whole POINT... knowledge is power, and the crux of this whole discussion lies with exactly people like him: the ordinary Arab on the street in his dish-dasha... who CARES what some highly educated academic in his ivory tower thinks... like you, ahem ahem
: +++You are claiming estrangelo is a descendant of ancient cuneiform??? Why can't the Muslim in Iraq claim that it gave birth to Arabic also? You show me the connection between cuneiform and estrangelo and I'll show you its connection to Arabic.
>>>>> And then again I am no scholar or linguist... but I HAVE been told that estrangelo is much older than Arabi and you don't find many pagan sun temples like the one in Sogmatar, or Urhai etc etc that use Arabi... there is a stronger link with Akkadian and "Sureth" than Arabi [but this is splitting hairs because one language is as good as another lah?]
