Thanks for your concern but really without bragging "been there done that" but not actually physically to Terra del Fuego. I want to go there for certain, have done so for years, except it is so cold but fascinating nonetheless:)
In fact there are cave paintings in the Kimberley which tell the story of a sea journey across the Pacific (?) by the Indigenous from the Terra. The paintings are so old that none of the Elders know the story. They know the pictures but don't know the People, they are are not them nor their ancestors. But one story is still extant and that is this (you might like it). In the other distant Land where the Old People lived before, the WOMEN ruled the tribe. It is (was) a secret passed down through "secret men's business" so the women would not find out and try to rule again. I will try and find a link.
As for the biblical flood, I have said before I grew up with both Indigenous and Biblical stories side by side. So it is part of the big picture for me. I can remember at primary school it started raining hard and long and wet staight down like a curtain. It rained, and I counted past the forty days and forty nights on into sixty days when it finally stopped. We didn't get flooded out though but I went to sleep every night thinking about the stories and was TERRIFIED
I just want to know geologically if it happened or if it was just a localized one in the Gulf re Sumeria and Gilgamesh.
Hey, did you know we possibly have Eygtian rock carvings in Sydney telling the tale of a windswept lost voyage across the Indian Ocean, due to the prevailing westerly winds, the Roaring Forties..blown off course. It is a tale of woe as one sailor was bitten by a snake. It all "sounds" authentic. The same thing happened to the Portugese and the Dutch so who knows....as these prevailing winds last/only landfall before aust is South America the Terras would have come that way, surely. The Kimberley is in the Northwest.
The southern hemisphere is wild alright.
Anyway, whatever, so many thanks, you always give me heaps to research.
In the end with me it is always a spiritual journey, regardless, first and last.
Peace always, judah
