According to a study by the Commonwealth Scientific and Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia, Aborigines were the first astronomers of the world, ahead of thousands or even tens of thousands of years the creators of complex Mysterious Stonehenge or the Egyptian builders of the pyramids.
“We know today that there are many myths, aboriginal songs and legends about the sky. Studying them carefully, we understand that they are more than that. In fact, ancient aboriginal astronomical phenomena are used to navigate to calculate the time and to know when to go for food, “said Ray Norris, author of the study.
Norris, who has studied Aboriginal culture and dates in the first European settlers in touch with them, is convinced that the first inhabitants of Australia myths hide many details of astronomical phenomena and the way people have perceived.
“Imagine now a native 10000-20000 years or more, of an eclipse and trying to understand what happens. Today, listening to ancient legends and songs, we can understand how they saw these events. For example, There is a legend that says that woman and man Sun Moon sometimes used to meet to make love. Then their bodies became one. Astel eclipses understand them, “says the same Ray Norris.
Also, the researcher found references to Pleiade, with astronomical phenomena related to aboriginal good time to go fishing and gathering nuts. Currently, Norris is looking for evidence that Aborigines were recorded in their myths of the impact of a comet or meteorite to Earth.
“It is obvious that they are the first evidence of a primitive astronomers. What we know not, and you may never know is how old these stories are … if they go after 20,000 or higher tens of thousands of millennia. The fact is that Aborigines are undoubtedly the world’s top astronomers, Australian scientist concludes.
