Odds are what you were told was based on myths or politics, and almost no science.Hungarian origins prior to the 9th century has been embroiled between eastern and western views of where each thinks Hungarian origins may be found. The prevailing view is that Hungarian (or Magyar) origins are to be found east of the Ural Mountains as part of an east to west migration of Uralic speakers. In 2000 a genetic marker was found that proved beyond any doubt that Hungarians were never part of this Uralic migration. In fact they have had no contact with other Uralic speakers for at least 4,000 years. This book explores how views of Hungarian origins reached the state of ignorance that it is today and then examines where the available evidence puts the Magyars origins. For the first time ever evidence is provided that combines the prevailing theories of the west and the east. Hungarian is shown to be an Uralic language as linguists have stated for 150 years and at the same time the Hungarian legends that say Hungarians originated near Persia are also proven to be correct.DNA evidence is examined to determine the physical origins of the Hungarian people as farmers in the Hindu Kush region. The myths that have evolved regarding Hungarian origins are traced back to their origins. Hungarian pre-Christian religious practices are also examined.Finally, not just Hungarian but all Uralic languages are shown to be a form of spoken Sanskrit slang, based not on word inheritance but on the observational qualities of the object. For example, the Hungarian word for shovel, kanal, is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning to dig, khana, and the Hungarian word for hoe, kapa, is from the Sanskrit word for a cavity or hole, kupa. A language law is presented that governs how Sanskrit words were adopted into Hungarian. Even the origins of the word Magyar itself are presented.
