In archaeology context is king followed by the law of law of stratigraphic superposition, given the high rate of fraud in declarations of finds the need to document the finding of an object is paramount to its acceptance

I am not of Australia, but I did lived there for a year. And when I was there, I learned something about their Aborigines, that being that they came from Asia. Like, Indonesia. The dogs they had, the dingoes, are closely related to wild dogs found in South East Asia. They even look very similar. And if you look at the evolution of Australia's mammalian life, a wild dog would be very weird thing to only sort of spontaneously occur.
Also what are these Masonic hand gestures you say was exchanged between Captain Cook and the Aborigines? When I was looking at Australia's history I never seen anything like that. And if I live in another country for an amount of time, I do all I can to learn all about them and their historys. So, I'm not saying, what my knowledge is complete and it probably worse than an Australian, but I did spent a little time learning this and I saw nothing about Masonic hand gestures at the arrival of Cook.
Also, there is no remains of civilisation. Aborigines were nomadic, and if alien visitors left things like Egyptian pyramids for the Egyptians, why they don't do the same for Australian Aborigines?
So I guess what I ask is, where do you get this information from? Please not, a dodgy website. I suppose that I am academic, and I require verifying sources of information, ones to convince. So don't take me in the wrong way - I seem to offend a lot of Westerners by accident. (I just don't know how to be not direct I guess.)

According to this, there were even giants living there in the past...
I don't want this thread to go off topic, but interestingly enough many Aboriginal tribes speak of a "Great War" between the Aboriginals and a giant humanoid race. In the end the giants were pushed out from the plains and into the mountains (the Blue mountains?) where it is believed they still exist today.

Now that is some very interesting extra info thanks jgmara.
That is more like the native american existence then? The curious thing though is that even the native americans left some clues, for example the animal mounds (snakes, etc) and even the city in the cliffs (can't remember exactly where but tempted to say Arizona).
The Abo's were probably far too busy avoiding all the little nasties rather than having time to build stuff!

IT can not be true. Europe was covered in an ice age when Australia was first populated. Europe or at least Northern Europe was the last continent to be colonised by man
Then how would you explain the presence of denisovan genomes in aboriginals?

Linguistic parallels are not conclusive of an ancestral connection, it certainly does add to the mystique. At the most it's just circumstantial evidence. One should ask, where are the tools? Where are the artifacts of an Egyptian voyage? The Uluru region is deeply inland, that's a lot of traveling to do.
It is my belief that the origins of these peoples are the descendants of the biblical Ham.
I also want to call into question the accuracy of those cave painting dates, It's my belief that they are much younger.
While some claim the Wandjina are ancient astronauts, others have suggested they were in fact Egyptian and Phoenician seafarers who may have landed on the Kimberley coastline during the South East Asian trading expeditions over 3,000 years ago. Archaeologists have pointed out the similarities in the garments of the Wandjina to those of early middle eastern seamen. This possibility is further supported by the presence of middle eastern blood groups, racial features, and Egyptian words used among local Aboriginal tribes. Which brings us to our next topic, the Egyptians.

As I recall there is an ancient map which shows the coast of Antartica (sic) with out the ice on it. I always found that most curious. It's believed to be a copy of an even more ancient map. I have always wondered what great wonders were lost when the Library of Alexandria burned.
Additionally, there are striking similarities between the languages of ancient Egypt and those of the Native Americans that inhabited the areas around Louisiana about the time of Christ. Epigraphy experts have stated that the languages of the Attakapa, Tunica and Chitimacha tribes have affinities with Nile Valley (Egyptian) languages involving certain words associated with Egyptian trading communities of 2,000 years ago. Scholars note the Algonquian and Siouan peoples used pictographs and ideographic writing symbols that also have similarities with ancient Canaanites.

Australians are the descendants of the biblical Ham. After the flood there were THREE men and THREE women.

I'll take that as no, then

Would it not be easier to follow up and contact Brett Green yourself in order to gain the info you seek than to just completely dismiss it with so few words?
Clues can be found in many places, and only need some chasing up outside the Box. Brett could easily provide the information you seek, and name those at the museum who assessed the ewer in his possession.
Why you would not follow up has me stumped. Although I have seen plenty of elitism by science-types on these forums over the past 9 years... not saying you are in that limited perception box.

In quest of Australia’s lost pyramids
2004, Jul 1st
by Anthony G. Wheeler
When I first saw the so-called pyramid for myself it was difficult to believe that we were at the right place. It’s just an ordinary low grassy hill by the main road from Gympie to Tin Can Bay with an irregular covering of trees, a couple of straggly patches of prickly pear, some old stone, some dead wood bulldozed into piles, some discarded bits of barbed wire and other rubbish, and a lot of cow pats left by grazing cattle. What are we left with? The facts are (probably) that the Gympie “Golden” pyramid is actually an ordinary hill terraced by early Italian immigrants for viniculture that has been disfigured by erosion and the removal of stone from the retaining walls for use elsewhere; the stone wall around Gympie’s Surface Hill Uniting Church is exactly what the Rev Mr Geddes says it is — a wall made from irregular, freshly quarried stone. The “Gympie Ape/Iron Man” statue was carved by a Chinese gold prospector and later abandoned. The sun symbol and snakes were carved quite recently. The prickly pear was introduced to Australia by early settlers journeying via South America. As for all the supporting statements by the various authorities, all but a few unimportant ones fade away as one after another proves to be a misquote, a falsification or an outright fabrication.
