Is Magyar/Hungarian really Uralic?

Not too long ago we were discussing proto-languages, Nostratic, and possible
links between English, Chinese and Quechua or what not. I found this website
that *specualtes* on the true origin of much of Hungarian's vocabulary (it
doesn't claim that Hungarian is the mother of all languages, and it does
come with an appropriate disclaimer). Mostly Indo-European and Altaic is
cited, as is a lot of Sumerian, but a few words from Sino-Tibetan and
Quechua (!) also appear.

Just wanted you to know and see for yourself.
