Wikipedia begs to differ, I'm afraid:

The ancestors of the Hungarian can be tracked back to the ancient Hun and other peoples who once lived in the north of China. There are some evidences in China....
More exactly the people were conquered by the Huns, and adopted their language.

Curiously a lot of big scientific minds came out of Hungary: Nikola Tesla, John von Neumann, Edward Teller, Theodore von K�rm�n... Lots of others.
While on an expedition in Ecuador János Móricz found several matches with the Hungarian (magyar) language and the language that the locals spoke. (Some scholars claim that Hungarian language is a mesolith language) In the caves the explorers found gold plates with carvings resembling to Hungarian runic scripts.
One to one similarities with Hungarian of geographical and family names in Ecuador are evidences: Quito (formerly sounds Kitus where Kit=két (two), Us=ös (ancestors) as Hunor-Magor in hungarian legends. Another example is Zuay province's ancient settlement, Pest.
Common family names are: Tanay, Damma, Taday, Mór, Momay, Mansy, Pil, Béla, Uray, Zillahi, etc.
still hungarian speaking tribes e.g. Cayapak and Salasaca (zala-szaka where szaka=scythian) use these common words: apa=apa (father), aya=anya (mother), nap=nap (sun), vin=vén (old), kit=két (two), us=ös (ancestor), cu=kö (stone), pi, bi=víz (water), fuel=folyó (river), pille=pille (butterfly), etc.
The mystery of the Hungarian language deepens. Some scholars have linked it to a tribe in Ecuador!
Don't know how solid the research is but worth looking into.
Disagreement is fine, and welcome on ATS, but don't patronise people, and don't talk down to them either. I clearly said,
"Don't know how solid the research is but worth looking into."
You even quoted it. Ad hominem attacks are lame. Whatever the background of the researcher, and whatever his other beliefs, he has pointed out a significant number of words that are similar in both languages.
Byzantine, Bavarian and Arab sources
In 895/896, probably under the leadership of Árpád, some Magyars crossed the Carpathians and entered the Carpathian Basin. The tribe called Magyars (Megyer) was the leading tribe of the Magyar alliance that conquered the center of the basin
That's all. I was trying to throw something out there for people to have a look at. I can't stand know-it-all attitudes.
