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.)
Is that true? I thought the aboriginals and melanesians down there came from Europe, isn't that a fact? I was sure i read somewhere that aboriginals
have substantial amounts of denisovan genes, which shows they came directly from the mountains in eastern europe or interbred at least with people who
No that is not correct, the denisovans originated in south east Asia, Thailand,Vietnam,Laos, Cambodia southern China. It is likely that the denisova
cave represents the northwestern extent of thier range.
The presence of a denisovan genetic contribution in the "negrito" and melanesian populations, speaks to the
arrival of the first peoples to to move into se Asia from the Indian ocean area.
And the presence of dogs with both the late native Australians and the polynesians, shows that there was in fact a migrational backwash, so to
The first people who moved up the east coast of asia left founding populations as they moved north and east.
These groups of people would have settled along the deltas of the rivers, and along the streams that drained Asia and the islands of western pacific.
It would have been at this time these people would have domesticated the dog or ran across people who had already settled the area from the interior
of the continent, following the same rivers and streams to the coast. Some of these people subsequently struck out for Australia, and some to the new
