Aboriginal People of Australia

August 17, 2005

Q. What are the origins of the aboriginal people of Australia and have they been there for 60,000 years?

A. The people of Australia arrived there roughly 55,000 years ago, just shortly after they were ensouled. We would wish to point out that they had come along the coasts of India and the Malay peninusla to the Indonesian islands, and from there to Australia. Remember that the seacoast was different at that time, and that moving from one point to another was conducted on low rafts. Just as many animals use tools today, so the hominid apes that were about to be ensouled had rudiementary language and a few reliable tools and weapons. Once ensoulment occurred the species developed past and future tenses, magical perceptions, and esthetics.
