I guess I am influenced from a cultural anthropology class I took years ago. It was a pretty convincing argument for the validity of oral traditions. Researchers showed (with supporting scientifically dated artifacts) that much of the cultural and spiritual traditions of Australia's aborigines has remained unchanged (or little changed) over a couple thousand years at least. We saw a rather long documentary (ran two classes long) (and it was fascinating)...therein were lots of supporting materials. It was a long time ago but my take away of it all being fairly well substantiated has stuck with me (even if all the details I got tested on were long forgotten.) I miss my very sharp memory - it served me well for a long time. von The Aborigines are not political. They never took it upon themselves, to travel across the world -- replacing all the other mythologies with their own. Quote Link to comment
