Gerry, it is ludicrous to argue against such a moot point. Genetics
and language are obviously NOT the same thing. That would be
like saying that African-Americans can't learn English because
their genetics derive from Africa and not Europe! Entirely
ridiculous! We can clearly see that language can freely spread
across genetic diversity at any time.

No one in their right mind considers genetics and language
interchangeable concepts nor should anyone assume that they always
go in the same direction. Period.

So, while the Ainu may derive much of their genetics from the
mainland to the west, the origin of their language must be
examined seperately and unbiasedly.
