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.)
5000 years ago Melanesian crossed the Indonesian land bridge - bringing dingoes. Many many different people have come and are collectively called
aboriginals. They took over coastal areas, or at least Australoid's found away from the coast are much different to negritos people, the later being
akin to the people found in the Adaman islands south from India and I don't think many of them lasted colonization as purebloods - Tasmania being the
prime example. These people were truly primitive. Early explorers included 7 distinct race types. They weren't against making arbitrary racial
generalizations, but what I've read makes it pretty certain that the dessert people were far more advanced. Photo's of really primitive aboriginals,
such as the ones from Dunk
Island are nowadays hard to find.
The OP didn't mention this but India also makes a claim, even at the highest academic levels. They state that a large amount of aboriginals are
directly related to them. I've also heard that they, the Indians are descendants of aboriginals and not the other way around. Looking at the map
around 10,000 years ago, the good land was the area ABOVE the top-end between Indonesia and Australia, now the Arafura sea. There could well have been
a thriving civilization. The conditions would be incredibly fertile. People would be a mixed bag of travelers escaping climate change.
One more major inclusion should be South American's - definitely Aztecs or whatever you can call whichever civilization from that area made it here
and kept coming over 50,000's years. The thing is Australia is a months float on a raft and if you are lost for long enough you will float to
Australia. It's a proven fact that a current flows directly to Nth Australia.
Take what I've said with a grain of salt. Much of what I read is circumspect. History books are hopeless. It's well known that there is a PC agenda
behind Australian anthropology.
I particularly like this site www.convictcreations.com...
Q. I've never understood how Australia managed to remain relatively untouched. I can see how groups of around 100 would be absorbed without a trace -
much of a trace, but...
New Zealand was colonized by Polynesians only a few hundred years before. Surely 6000 primitive negrito's in Tasmania couldn't hold back any
landings.. or could they, did they..? It makes no sense. The Chinese were extracting gold from an inland sea. That must have been a very long time
ago. Why didn't they do what they've done everywhere else? All of Asia was populated by people like aboriginals only 10,000 years ago..
My only guess, is that until the renaissance and the industrial era etc nobody much cared. There wasn't so much of a sense of organized nation state
over 500 years ago, for the various people that discovered Australia. Moreover, Australia was at the end of any migration route. It was never a cross
road. Nothing ever came back.
My only other guess, is that aboriginals were much better at killing their enemy than I suspect. I don't know. There were many cannibalistic tribes
in the North.
It might also stem from their primitiveness. They couldn't be made to work, (what I've heard Japanese say about people in PNG during WWII). Not
Last thought. I think one of the latest influx of people killed off the existing population before colonization and probably not that long before and
probably it's been kept secret.
