    Science Denialism down under

    Seriously how DUMB do you have to be to believe the way the aborigines want it told?

    The document suggests it is “more appropriate” to say Aborigines have been here “since the beginning of the Dreaming/s” *because this “reflects the beliefs of many Indigenous Australians that they have always been in Australia, from the beginning of time, and came from the land’’. ..

    “Scientists can potentially damage the standing of the elders, or the right to land claims, should our findings contradict the oral traditions.”

    Genetic evidence suggests that the first humans reached Australia around 50,000 years ago. Modern humans had spread into Southeast Asia from Africa by about 60,000 years ago, and that they were in Australia by about 50,000 years ago. The interbreeding between modern humans and Denisovans happened around 45,000 to 53,000 years ago, which may mean that Denisovans reached Australia around the same time as modern humans did. Living Aborigines and nearby Melanesians are genetically 5% Denisovan as a result. Some researchers even suggest that ancient Denisovans were the first to discover Australia.
