Only asked about the research project as this is your thread and you are a mod. There are many facets and aspects to this topic that as a whole arnt
in the original terms of reference of the thread. Just covering my arse is all. I have come across alot of things that tie in but would be considered
REALLY off topic. This subject has components that could be spread across every ATS subforum, even politics..
Balls in your court mate as to how tolerant you wish to be as it is your thread and you are a mod.
You know we get told dreamtime stories in school, I was of the first generation to get the revised history where the word conquered was replaced with
invaded. We get told these stories in the same tone as we are told grimm bros fairy tales(oh the irony), it starts in preschool. Infact some of the
early reading books in our school system are dreamtime stories. I always liked the tiddlywink the frog story, he was a bit greedy and drank all the
water in the waterhole and held it in his belly. This was unfair on all the other animals around the waterhole, so the rainbow serpent came and
tickled his belly. This made the frog laugh and all the water in the world come out of his belly drowning most of the other animal bystanders at the
water hole.(flood story again)
Cause we get told these stories along with hansel and gretel we take them as such. We also get told that a frog is a frog and a snake is a snake and
that the Aboriginal people are dumb cause they think a real snake created the world. When its presented this way at an early age then the Aboriginal
people have no hope for respect and understanding of their sacred sites(thanks BHP)
Again I keep coming back to getting past semantics and looking at the similarities between the ancient beliefs of all cultures. What I can see from my
own investigations is that all Eastern religions are a bastardised version of these ancient beliefs.
I came to this conclusion after jumping ahead and looking at ancient Indonesia and Papua New Guinea(They had bull roarers as well).
Tasmanias Aboriginals were the oldest. Could the origins of eastern religion travelled up from Tasmania? Is this the focal point? Have we been lied to
about the origins of man?
Up untill this thread I was a rather straight thinker and theres alot of things I have had to delve into that I wouldnt touch with a 10 foot barge
pole. Cause of this there is a heck of alot of stuff I dont know about. So I ask any experts reading this......
Have places like Atlantis Lumeria etc ever been associated with the South Pole region?
Soz skys, thats as OT as I will get from here.......Promise
