Study finds ancient genetic link between India and Australia

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A STUDY of Aboriginal genes has credited Indians for the introduction of dingos, food processing and tool technology to Australia more than 4000 years ago.

    The study, published in US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found genetic links between Aborigines from the Northern Territory and Indians that pre-dated European arrival in Australia – going back between 4000 and 5000 years.

    Previously it was believed that there had been no contact between Australia and the rest of the world after the initial southern migration from Africa.

    The study's authors believe that the evidence indicates that Indians had migrated to Australia, but they could not determine the route used.

    Professor Mark Stoneking told that it had been believed that Australia had been isolated following its initial colonisation, but this study showed another significant migration.

    "Our results show that there were indeed people that made a genetic contribution to Australians from India," he said.

    The report also suggests that Indians brought stone tools, called microliths, to Australia, and tracks the dingo's arrival in Australia to roughly the same time.

    The study also examined genetic links with South-East Asia and Papua New Guinea.

    It also used fossils and other archaeological discoveries.

    The report's authors said more research was needed to look at a wider sample of Aboriginal genes.

  2. They've got it the wrong way round, Australian Aborigines actually invented India.
  3. So what they are saying is, that the word root for "Kangaroo" (big fuck off rat) actually stems from the early sanskrit word "Vindaloo" (hot fuck off rat)!

  4. The only 'tool technology' you use is that which allows you to pollute ARRSE like an electronic version of the Ganges.

    Fucking hell.
  5. I suspect property prices may plummet in the northern territory!

  7. no,

    india as a country is 65 yrs old

    india as a civilization is 5000 years old....nothing to do with Australian aboriginals..

    India was a transition point when humans were migrating out of africa to australia....
  8. India invented cunts!

  9. So what they are saying is that:-

    1) india has territorial rights over australia since indians were the first outsiders to colonize australia.

    2) India has rights over Australian natural resources

    3) More and more indians should migrate and replace the European population there

    It also means the abos can sue the arse off india for the fucking mess thay've made by introducing a non-indigenous species to the continent. And Lindy Chamberlain is going to declare war.

  11. Since the Germanic languages, including English, are Indo european languages, why don't you just extend your territorial claims to encompass the whole world.

    Here's an indo european word for you "knob!"

    Does it matter, both India and Australia are part of Her Majesties Commonwealth, therefore our bitches.

    What are India going to introduce to Oz? Shite yellow cars with non working brakes? Smelly people and poverty?
