I've tried to hold back on the ad hominems as long as I could but
the above is so entirely brainless that it's futile continuing such
a discussion. Sufficed to say, Gerry, your bizarre views are
hopelessly antiquated in the realm of modern day ethnology and
linguistics. Since bilingualism is an obvious reality in itself,
you're talking through your ass. I'm bilingual - That doesn't mean
I have two sets of genetics.
Perhaps Glen you have signalled the death knell for origins of language studies.  We have melded so completely in this great melting pot of ours that searching for origins is a futile pursuit.
