As I have been saying on this site for some time now. However, this article suggests that the first Australians were Indians in that the Out of Africa folks from 70,000 YBP moved along the coasts of India down the coasts of other Indian Ocean nations (all true) before settling in Australia (true) and becoming the Aborigines (I say not true).
Most human races do not go back all that far. Northeast Asians other than Ainu types only go back 9000 YBP. SE Asians for the most part go back 5000 YBP. Most East Indians go back 8000 YBP. Typical African Negroids only go back 6-12000 YBP. Modern Amerindians mostly go back only around 7-8000 YBP. Modern Europeans are not related to the Europeans of the Pleistocene, as much as White nationalists lie and say they do. The furthest back are the Lapps at 11000 YBP.
It’s true that the Negritos go back a long ways. The Orang Asli in Malaysia have lines going back 72,000 YBP, making them the oldest race on Earth. It’s also true that some Africans have ancient lines. Bushmen have lines going back 53000 YBP and some Tanzanians have lines extending back even further, possibly beyond even the Orang Alsi.
I don’t believe that the Negritos created the Aborigines, though it is possible that the Negritos were the original Australians, and they were genodiced when the Aborigines arrived. The genocide was still ongoing when the White showed up. The Aborigines had been exterminating the Negritos for fun for probably over 10,000 years. Amazing that any were left at all.
In my opinion, the modern Aborigines were created by two forces – a Murrayan group from SE Asia (possibly Thailand) that looked something like the Ainu. At 17,000 YBP, Ain types were generalized throughout Thailand. At this date, they move up into Japan by boats and become the Jomon. So at 17,000 YBP, at the same time the Ainu types moved by boat to Japan, they also moved by boat to Australia.
Possible reasons for the mass migrations are rising sea levels. Keep in mind that around this time, Malaysia, Western Indonesia and SE Asia proper were all connected by land. In addtion, most of the Indonesian islands were connected by land. All of Sundaland was connected.
But rising sea levels in connection with mass melting of glaciers caused mass flooding and rising sea levels in this region, isolated Indonesia from Malaysia and SE Asia proper and islandized the formerly connected region of Indonesia. There were other migrations in this period, and the ancestors of the modern Indonesians probably settled the islands from Proto-Daic types on the coast of SE Asia during this time.
The Murrayans lived in Australia for about 5000 years until an invasion of folks called Carpinterians. They seem to have come from Southern India. At this time, all Indians looked very Australoid. They reached Australia about 13000 YBP.
The mix of Ainu-Murrayans and South Indian-Carpinterians produced this strange fellow called the Aborigine. This is why people say that some South Indians like Tamils look like Aborigines. This is probably the ancestral stock of the Aborigines, in part. If you look closely at Ainu types, they also look somewhat like Aborigines for the same reason. The Ainu are the ancient ancestors of the Aborigines.
So the article is somewhat correct, but not completely. I believe that they are just finding the Carpinterian connection from 13,000 YBP, not some ancient connection from 60,000 YBP.
