There are many pure blood aboriginals left. My friend married one and he brags that she's pure blood. She has very strong bone structure and goes crazy when she drinks, but he says she makes up for with love and he really loves her.
The red ore look, is iron oxide. Australia is a giant mine these days!

The Aboriginal dreamtime is very interesting and good to read up about.
Just to throw a spanner in the works.. The earliest aboriginals did harvest food, but later arrivals burnt down the continent, subsequently killing off all the mega fauna. There was nothing that could be farmed except the giant wombat, and that animal lasted 11,000 years after their arrival. Some of the groups hadn't learned to harvest fire, and on the east coast they all talk of pre-humans who were still there when settlers arrived... stories of the Yowi (Australia's big foot) involve recently extinct mega fauna. The smaller type are pre-humans
dreamtime does not stop your babies dying in severe droughts sigh the only way to even out the years of famine with years of plenty is agriculture and to produce more than you can eat so you can save some for the bad years nothing can compensate for loss of an entire family to famine - i dont care what great spiritual connection and dreamtime stories there are NOTHING can compensate for watching your babies die of hunger in years of drought and lack of food and shortage of prey to hunt

The Australian aborigines are not alone. The Philippines' Aetas were also left alone. There are no ancient structures in the Philippines.

Thats not correct man, the problem is that the sacred knowledge handed down to them by the Wandjina, etc is tied to sacred sites of actual land around australia - this means many of the structures etc are kept secret.
According to legend 10,000 years ago the Creator decided to manifest on earth (Tya) as a man. He sent a message by telepathy to all living things to gather at Moon Lake (Lake Narran) to wait for him to appear. When he asked them to clear the ground and there he made a circle representing his body, out of which all life comes. This circle would become an important part of Aboriginal life, as it is the place where initiation takes place. He told them the creation myth and why they had been placed on the earth. He instructed them to hold initiations for their youth. At the time of initiation a wise woman or man was to tell them the laws of living and how they were to fulfill the great plan for life, the things he was explaining to them at this first initiation. The circle was called a Bora and Boras have been drawn and used all over Australia for thousands of years. Access to these sacred sites (most of which are secret) is extremely important to Aboriginal life. All Bora sites are high-energy, sacred places.
In Central NSW extensive megalithic stone alignments and other astronomical structures dating back 10 000 to 15 000 years and which suggests the former presence in Australia of a highly advanced civilization of unknown origin. These structures include standing stones weighing 20 tons and carved stone heads.
In Western NSW 3 large human heads have been found carved out of granite boulders. The heads were found near mysterious stone alignment and other formations.
So unlike other cultures, while they respected the power and wisdom of the snake, they saw it as a dangerous entity. Bear in mind that this myth is known by all of the Aboriginals across Australia. They also have a sort of Pantheistic view of the Universe/God that one might call a less defined Monotheism (like the great spirit among the Native Americans, but more esoteric).
In 1926 a British anthropologist specialising in Australian Aboriginal ethnology and ethnography, Professor Alfred Radcliffe-Brown, noted many Aboriginal groups widely distributed across the Australian continent all appeared to share variations of a single (common) myth telling of an unusually powerful, often creative, often dangerous snake or serpent of sometimes enormous size closely associated with the rainbows, rain, rivers, and deep waterholes.

so what are some other theories?
?? That Zacharia Sitchin was full of it? A hoaxer. Scam artist.
That no such thing as the "Annunaki" existed?
Those are some reasonable theories, I do say....
