|AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES CAME FROM INDIA, according a report in Science Daily, 21 July 2009. Raghavendra Rao and collegues involved
in the Anthropological Survey of India project have analysed 966 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences from members of India's "relic
tribes" and found central Dravidian and Austro-Asiatic tribes shared genetic traits otherwise only found in Australian aborigines.
Rao explained: "Mitochondrial DNA is inherited only from the mother and so allows us to accurately trace ancestry. We found certain
mutations in the DNA sequences of the Indian tribes we sampled that are specific to Australian Aborigines. This shared ancestry
suggests that the Aborigine population migrated to Australia via the so-called 'Southern Route'". The "Southern Route" refers to a
theory that humans arrived in Asia by "movement of a group of hunter-gatherers from the Horn of Africa, across the mouth of the Red
Sea into Arabia and southern Asia at least 50 thousand years ago. Subsequently, the modern human populations expanded rapidly along
the coastlines of southern Asia, southeastern Asia and Indonesia to arrive in Australia at least 45 thousand years ago."

ED. COM. We are not surprised by these findings. Creation Research said that Aborigines migrated to Australia via India in our
decade old documentary filmed around the world "The Origin of the Races". These findings fit with language studies that reveal some
common words in Aboriginal language and tribal languages from the Indian subcontinent. Aborigines did not evolve in Australia.
Like all human races they are descendents of the people who were scattered at the Tower of Babel. Therefore, the "Southern Route"
story is probably partly true. The ancestors of the Aborigines could have migrated to India via Arabia, having moved south from
Babel in Mesopotamia, and then moved along the coastlines of southern Asia and eventually spreading through the islands of South
East Asia to northern Australia. This probably happened during the time when the sea levels were lower and some land masses were
joined and islands were not so far apart. The presence of boomerangs and dingos in India is just further evidence for this as is
the fact that one Northern Territory aboriginal group call their killer boomerang Kali - the name of the Indian goddess of
death(Ref. anthropology, migration, ethnic groups)
