Basque as root of all languages?

Hello everyone,

Some years ago on the internet I stumbled upon a website by a man who believed that Basque was the root of all languages, and gave examples of how a word in various languages sound somewhat like other Basque words. For example, I think he said that the Japanese word for tree sounded like "Chop me" in Basque, or something to that effect. It was pretty much the greatest tinfoil hat moment in linguistics I had ever seen.

Does anyone have a link to this website, or know who it was that wrote it?

Thanks in advance!
