Macedonians probably have more roots in those ancient peoples, who many would consider "Greeks", than the inhabitants of Greece proper.

Greek culture and language has found a way to live on, mostly through others, but this idea that We are just Slavs, and they are decedents of the ancients is not even laughable, its moronic.
Uh... Greek language was never lost.
