Default Tau in league with Necrons?

He said something along the lines of this:

The Tau are perhaps actually in league with the Necrons. Here is my reasoning for this.

-What race is known to create warp storms? How was it coincidently that they appeared just before they were exterminated?
-The Necrons want to go after souls, and notice the Tau have no souls so they aren't really a problem, the reason I say this is because they are incapable of entering the warp for extended periods of time when travelling to other worlds and such.

What do you guys think of this?

He's high, or something. He doesnt know much on the tau! Tau have nothing to do with necrons. usually the argument is the deceiver has a ridge, as do tau, so then tau are the necrontyr reborn. but the deceiver has horns, a nose etc. Secondly, the c'tan crave worshippers. There is no fluff whatsoever indicating that the necrons seeking followers among the tau.
Beyond that, necrons are not interested in souls. thats slannesh. necrons seek bio-electric energy (at least thats what the c'tan get high off of). And they want to destroy ALL life. And that includes the tau.

And regarding the warp storms that saved the tau, there is a widely believed theory that it was the old ones who fashioned it. THe old ones could manipulate the warp. the necrons, the antithesis of the warp simply are unable to do so. And the old ones are/were the mortal enemies of the c'tan and their necron servants.

You can make a convincing argument that Farsight is under the influence of the C'Tan, but not the empire as a whole.

I have heard rumours that most races have influenced farsight, and I have heard this necron one before. It's fairly interestnig I have to say, sadly of course we will never know as GW want to preserve the universe as it is, not make radical changes like that would bring!

The tau are apparantly easy to corrupt and control and I have heard rumours mainly that chaos and the c'tan have influence over them. May be cool rules wise and having the option of some allies of cross units but to be honest couldn't actually see the whole tau empire being controlled by anyone other than the ethereals. It may appear easy to corrupt the naive other tau but the ethereals are evry mysterious to eevryone and who knows if they have alien contacts or alteria motives. Can we just not accept that some people are trying to do the right thing in the universe that is only war and evil?

The tau are not necessarily easy to control. The fact that the Ethereals can control them so easily means that they are faithful. Faith is a result of strong mindedness and weakmindedness. The Tau could be either.

The Tau cannot navigate the warp because they lack the psychic abilities that the Eldar and the Astromonicians possess. They also have not attempted to embrace this technology as of yet. Easy. Nobody said they have no souls, as all living things have souls.

You can't really say much about the C'tan in relationship to anything, as the only pieces of them that we fight are armor-based constructs that they animate for fun. Their true form isn't really of any consequence, as it can be whatever they want it to be--they're gods. The only reason we can beat them on the battlefield is because their armor is still just armor, and all armor can be breached.

In 40k, a "soul" is a living being's presence in the warp. There are some humans who have no connection the warp at all. They are called psychic untouchables, and are effectively soulless. Tau, on the other hand, do have a connection to the warp, although it is very weak.

I think your crazy and you don't know much fluff on the Tau. First off Tau do have souls or there would be know real thinking or uniqueness in each Tau being in the empire,and Two Farsight even if he may be under the influence of the C'tan, most fluff stories put out by GW say he may be under the influence of chaos or he discovered phychic powers. I seiously don't know how you can even suspect the Tau of having anything to do with the souless necrons, the two races are far to different to even suspect it.
