Kariong: The Key to Unlocking the Truth : Part 2

These photos were posted in the Indigenous Times 1 Feb 2012 in an article by Steven Strong , they claim to be evidence of an Egyptian presence at Kariong 4000 years ago , firstly we have an " Egyptian embalming table " used to drain the bodily fluids of the Egyptian prince buried nearby as they would have us believe .
Some also believe that it is an Aboriginal birthing table , but my local Aboriginal history expert tells me that the local womens birthing site was at Somersby and not here and they didn't give birth lying down like European women do , most if not all of the native tribes around the world give birth in a squatting position.
So what is it ? , well its a geological feature not uncommon in the sandstone around the area as my geologist informant explains:
It's what I call (on my webpage about Leissegang-like iron oxide banding) a "master band", again for lack of any other term, such as delineates one co-set of iron oxide banding from another.   The band sets are quite soft relative to the 'master bands' between them, and in this particular case the core that would have once had a set of parallel iron oxide banding ('periodic precipitation' of iron oxide) has totally weathered out.
See more on this banding

Next we have the " ruins of an Egyptian complex " , looks to all concerned like a modern day section of concrete drain culvert , we'll have to await the carbon testing results on this one which I assume they must be arranging to back this claim.

Kariong: The Key to Unlocking the Truth

A look at ........

Kariong: The Key to Unlocking a Forgotten Origin Australian Aboriginal History by Steven Strong

 Until receiving a phone call from Nina Angelo (OAM), I knew nothing of neither the struggles involved in protecting the land around Kariong (near Gosford) nor that part of this land was now on the market. When on-site I had seen a lot of tagged trees, and a for sale sign somewhere along a main road, but being unfamiliar with the whole region, nothing registered. But once aware the land for sale contained the Gosford Glyphs, my immediate concern was in the vicinity, but elsewhere.

 >> The Glyphs site is inside the boundary of Brisbane Waters National Parks , it is not on the private blocks that have been offered for sale

So very close, a site we are convinced was never seen by non-Aboriginals until discovered very late in the afternoon barely three months earlier, is a rock platform covered with a set of sacred engravings of considerable significance.

 >> This site was documented by W.D. Campbell in 1895 and included in his rare book published in 1899 , as well as being known to local Aboriginals , the NPWS and local expert B. Pankhurst

 On this large platform we saw a fish, serpent, massive dolphin or whale, circles and a variety of shapes and symbols. Without doubt, it is an impressive gallery of ancient Aboriginal rock art deserving of protection, but there is one life-sized engraving of Durramulan (son of Creation Spirit Biamie) that is so unique, utterly unexpected, and obviously sacred, decisions had to be made as to how it can be publically described. There is nothing remotely like it anywhere in Australia. And that’s it. That is all we have agreed to reveal. The photographs taken late in the afternoon on this site, and in particular those of Durramullan, will never be reproduced or published through any form of the media but …

 >> This is because women are not allowed to see images of Darramulan or even mention his name in Aboriginal culture even to this day , it is secret mens business. ( also see below re public showing , were women were present at this meeting ? ) 

 Owing to the real possibility this land, irrespective of the credentials for or against the Gosford Glyphs, could be sold then developed, a different approach is compulsory. It hads been our agreed stance to categorise all the sites/relics we are sharing as being ‘found within 2 hours of Sydney,’ but that generalised approach doesn’t apply in this location. Those engravings, and other related platforms (one is actually located within this block) are now directly under threat. So, in the spirit of Wirritjin (Black-fella White-fella Dreaming) a compromise has been reached, beginning on December 11 at Kariong ArtsBarn, we will share these images in public forums under the understanding they cannot be reproduced. The distance between this unique site and that of the Gosford Glyphs is far too close for coincidence or comfort. As to determining the bona fides of this supposed Egyptian site, we have one advantage. We have had the privilege of reading Dr. Hans-Dieter von Senff’s thoroughly researched draft paper and approach this debate utterly convinced the glyphs are genuine. The many critics who dispute the origin of these engravings numbering over 300 are not sensitive to the bigger picture, and if proven to be engraved by Egyptians, these glyphs form a pivotal and historic epitaph to an Australian history very few would suspect. The engravings were first properly translated by Ray Johnson, claimed to be proto-Egyptian and accepted “as correct by the General Director of Cairo Museum, Dr. Dia’ Abou-Ghazi.”

 >> Ray Johnsons translations were sent to Cairo to a retired Egyptologist Dr Abou- Ghazi , there are no copies of any replies from Cairo saying that they are " correct " , they were merley accepted by the retired academic , the only replies that came back and which are written on postcards ( not official Cairo Musuem letterheads ) are scant and remark " It is good to see a different opinion " and some other details referring to the shape of the snout on the Seti / Anubis figure.
 Ray Johnson has no qualifcations in Egyptology or Archeaology and is self taught.
 Dr. Hans-Dieter von Senff’ has no qualifications in Egyptology or Archeaology , but has a PHD in Germanic languages 
The Museum of Antiqites in Cairo has not followed up or investigated this case to this day.. 

 However, despite the endorsement of the resident expert in Cairo, Australian academics with less impressive credentials are adamant this is an elaborate hoax.

 >> The glyphs were examined by Egyptologist Dr Gilbert for A Keating in 1998 and he gives a very detailed report clearly showing why the carvings are fake , to date this has been the most comprehensive study of the actual glyphs as they appear on the rock surface.
 In 1984 Mr David Lambert Rock Art Conservator of the Cultural Heritage Division of the NPWS examined the glyphs and reported that they were aged less than 100 years old and showed signs of recent activity ( some of which was recorded for years after ) 
Also in 1984 photographs of the hieroglyphs were sent to Prof. Nageeb Kanawati, head of the Department of Egyptology at Macquarie University, Sydney , he quickly dismissed them as being " amatuer graffiti that made no sense at all " Prof. Nageeb Kanawati undertakes yearly trips to Egypt to work on the excavation of tombs for the Museum of Antiquities Cairo , in fact he is held is such high regard that he is the only expert from another country allowed to excavate royal tombs. I would say these are hardly " academics with less impressive credentials " 

 Within two hours from Sydney, with a majority of the locations/artefacts to be discussed located close to Gosford, is a large collection of engravings/carvings that are quite literally overlaid in, or the genesis of, Egyptian religion. An engraved Ankh, an essential accompaniment to Thoth, placed alongside an Ibis footprint (Thoth’s recent animal counterpart) and what we believe to be the ‘River of Life,’ is one of many sites that stretch geographic boundaries. Two Ibis-men engraved into rock, both in profile with the head of an ibis and body of a human, seem to resonate to the same ancient Egyptian theme. What really did catch us unawares was that not only is the ibis and Thoth synonymous, originally Thoth was depicted in ape-form. And it is this more ancient representation, which is found twice in Australia that extends the horizons considerably. A statue found at Gympie, claimed to act as one of five sentries guarding the controversial seven-stepped pyramid at Gympie, is a depiction of Thoth in his more primal ape-like form and has been argued over and often ridiculed.

 >> The Gympie Ape / Pyramid stories are well known hoaxes

 However, the recent discovery of an engraving of Durramullan, again in profile, is less open to debate. The pronounced long forehead and protruding lips is reminiscent of a baboon or one of the larger apes, and so out of context when carved into a continent lacking ape or monkey. The engraving is ancient, carved by an artist aware of an African animal and Egyptian deity supposedly unknown until the British invasion.

>> Strong has never visited this site, He claims ( Indigenous Times for 1 Feb 2011 ) that the carving is of an Egyptian Soldier with a short broad sword. The head dress on the man is unusual and he has an Egyptian style beak but for any one who had seen the engraving they would know that the ‘broadsword’ is another man’s arm which is one of many carved over him.The photo he uses was sent to him by a local Aboriginal rock art expert .

 In what only adds to the quality and quantity of this cross-cultural partnership, there are two sets of Aboriginal engravings, one containing 31 separate and distinct human characters and the other five figures, of which three have human bodies and what appears to be crocodile heads. t is for these reasons, and many others, we are in complete agreement with Robert Lawlor, author of highly regarded Voices of the First Day, when noting the same origin and sequence. “The Egyptian religious practices, zoomorphic pantheon of gods, concepts of death and rebirth, sorcery, magic and medicine all have their origins in the primal culture of the First Day.”2 We see the presence of Egyptians in Australia beginning at around 5,000 years ago, entirely in keeping with a global history that saw, for a variety of reasons to complex to discuss now, the Australian Aboriginal mariners and explorers finally return to Australia at around the same time.
 We believe the glyphs and other Egyptian remains found ‘within two hours of Sydney’ bear testimony to a spiritual sabbatical to the place where Egyptian religion and culture began. That the Gosford Glyphs are so close to the sacred Durramullan site demands an awareness, agreement between the first Australians and people from a distant continent. The Durramullan platform is undeniably special, and the Glyphs are an integral part of this arrangement, unique not only in Australia but the world. The Egyptian crypt and engravings, dedicated to the memory of the son of a Pharoah, was constructed close to the Durramullan rock platform and could only be created with the consent of the local Aboriginals.

>> Crude attempts at creating an underground tunnel at the site was documented by the NPWS in 2001, and includes photos of stockpiled materials on site

 Of course, if Australian Aboriginals did sail the globe in ancient times this journey is dependent upon ocean-going boats being constructed in Australia. Up at the Top End there are many engravings and paintings of boats which are mistakenly claimed to be inspired by Maccassan boats fishing for trepan.

 >> The trepang trade between the Maccassan fishermen and the Aboriginals is modern history and is well documented , the boats pictured in Aboriginal art are Maccassan boats , along side modern white sailing ships , aircraft and even a WW2 battleship , the Aboriginal artists were very accurate here in depicting the shapes of the ships they saw.

 No such claims can be made for the engraving of an ocean-going boat found in the northern section of the area ‘within two hours from Sydney.’ The boat’s design, with a steep prau and stern, has one primary function: to sail through large waves. It would be a waste of time, effort and resources to construct a boat according to the shape and proportions engraved into the rock, if the vessel sailed in stiller waters.

 >> But where is the photo ?

 More importantly, this engraving goes a long way towards establishing the claims made by Ramindjeri Elders. If indeed, as they insist, their ancestors circumnavigated the globe in a figure eight then this sophisticated design would serve that purpose. That engraving and the Ramindjeri account provide answers to a series of unresolved questions that mainstream academia are unable to appreciate. The accepted presence of Australian Aboriginal people in America was the focus of Issue 35 of the highly respected science magazine Cosmos. The front cover carries the following caption: “Did Aborigines discover America? Startling new finds suggest Australia’s first people made it all the way to South America more than 11,000 years ago.”3 Of course, America was merely one port-of-call when the First Australians set sail.
“Dr. Raghavendra and researchers from the Indian-government backed Anthropological Survey of India project found unique genetic mutations were shared between modern-day Indians and Aborigines.”4 They “identified seven people from central Dravidian and Austro-Asiatic tribes who shared genetic traits only found in Aborigines.”5 These facts, along with newly discovered Australian genetic links to a hominid in Siberia referred to as Denosovian, necessitate the same means of transport: a boat. However, the plan of a boat is insufficient, also required are both the tools needed to construct such a vessel and navigational skills before sailing to India, America, Asia, Egypt or any other destination. An axe is an essential pre-requisite if building a vessel capable of sailing across oceans.
 In keeping with all other firsts, it should come as no surprise that the oldest axes yet found are located within Sahul (the greater Australian continent which includes PNG, Tasmania, etc). The oldest axe was found at Huon Terrace (PNG) and is dated at 40,000 years, followed by an axe found in Jawoyn land (N.T.) claimed to be 35,500 years old. Remaining within Australia, an axe was discovered at Sandy Creek (QLD 32,000 years) and another at Malangangerr (N.T. 23,000 years). In what confirms the antiquity of Australian axe technology, and by association boats, Angel John Gallard has in his possession a hand-held chopper (the precursor to the axe) which he believes to be no less than 60,000 years old, with the real possibility it is over 100,000 years old

 >> Most of these reports are baseless and the " implements " always seem to be in private hands , not held or examined by museums in Australia .
The existence of old axes and woodworking tools are not sufficient evidence that a large boat building operation existed.

 The oldest axe discovered outside Australia was found at Niah Cave (Sarawak) and is thought to be 15,500 years old. For any such an epic journey to succeed, especially so if claimed to have circumnavigated the world in a figure eight, these Aboriginal mariners must be able to navigate by the stars. Once again it all begins here. As announced by a team of scientists from the CSIRO, the oldest astronomical construction was found at Wurdi Youang (Victoria). “The strange stone arrangement”6 has “two points set in perfect alignment with the setting sun on a midsummer’s day.”7 CSIRO experts are of the opinion the “ancient Aboriginal sundial could be upwards of 10,000 years old.”8 Nor do these rocks stand in isolation, there are two sets of walls recently found in the Snowy Mountains, the first is aligned east-west , marks out the conjunction of planets and contains no less than 10,000 rocks.
 The second is at least four times bigger and runs down an extremely steep slope. Within ‘two hours from Sydney’ is a perfectly aligned five-rocked compass and another construction that is far more enigmatic, which for obvious reasons, we call ‘mini-Stonehenge.’ It is made up of 46 stones in the inner circle and 18 rocks forming what we feel are clusters of stars. The four directions are marked out by arches with a horizontal stone supported by stone pillars. All four constructions, although separated by hundreds of kilometers, serve the same purpose: charting the heavens.

 >> And again some photos would be nice 

 There is one pattern exhibited by the sites found ‘within two hours of Sydney’ that seems to be in open contradiction to an artistic maxim we assumed held fast throughout Australia. It was our belief that traditional Aboriginal art was region specific. Within this area we have found over 25 styles/techniques, many of which are claimed to be created in one tribal estate. We found evidence of the following Aboriginal artistic styles; Panaramitee; X-Ray; Figurative; Mimi; Lightning Brothers; Wandjina; Papunya; Hand stencils (two types); Representational; Rock engraving; Rock Pecking; Stone Arrangements; Bands across the body; Egyptian symbols; Bird prints; Engraved shield design (found throughout Australia); Profiled spirits and others we could not identify. So great is the variety, and the obligation that associated Dreaming stories are also present, we suspect this area was the inspiration behind Alexandria, somewhat akin to a continental repository storing the knowledge and wisdom of the nation of the First Australians. So where does that leave us? If relying on text books and academics ‘dazed and confused.’ However, there is an alternative route.

 >> Yes we should listen to a school teacher and some old guy with a PHD in Germanic language and take that as gospel , we should also believe that New Dawn Magazine and the Indigenous Times are credible scientific publications to publish ones theories in 

 We are convinced that the First Australians are completely separate to the Africans and were the first homo sapien sapiens. It was from Australia, not Africa, the first migration originated, and it is from Australia religion, gender equality, astronomy, burials, sailing, music, art, democracy and all the nobler pursuits began. And it is in Australia, and in particular the area ‘within 2 hours from Sydney,’ that proof of this global legacy can still be found.

Narara 84

"Is it parsley or marijuana ? " the hippie chick was saying to the security guard with a 12 gauge pump action shotgun slung over his shoulder , "It could be real and then it may not be ! "
She was waving a sandwich bag full of a green substance in front of this guy and he didn't know what to do , he decided to let her pass on.
" Put the gun away wanker ! " another lark said , later on we found out this gun and a lot more had been confiscated from actual concertgoers.
It was 1984 and we were at the entrance to the Narara 84 rock festival at Somersby , like the year before we decided to lug all our gear in manually a set up a camp site , vehicle sites were more expensive and we didn't have a suitable bus or van anyway.
Once inside there were a few flatbed tray trucks that you could pile your gear onto and they would drive you out into the camping area which was about 2 kilometres squared , by the end of the weekend there would be 30 to 40 thousand campers and the biggest sea of tents I have ever seen.
After losing our tent ( it's the orange one ) many times last year we hatched a plan for 84 , me and my mate Phil got an old bed sheet and a couple of cans of spray paint and made up a flag for our campsite , it was a coiled up cobra with the words " Brain Damage - Woy Woy " emblazoned upon it.
Once we had set up our mother tent and it's ring of smaller tents we erected our flag and stood back and admired our handy work proudly.

Over the next few days the flag was to become a way point for others to find their tents as well , some even stopped for photos , some even stayed for a few hours.
That's when Superman turned up , an enterprising young lad who could see that this would be a good place to camp for a few hours and sell a few acid trips to passers by.
Soon we were all in a large circle on the grass and giggling at each other in the afternoon sun when a familiar face came into focus , it was Poofy Col holding a large foam esky.
Poofy Col was the local gay dude back then , in fact he was the only gay guy we knew in Woy Woy , he was also the local pot dealer.
He lived in the old block of high rise flats at Ettalong on the top floor , we only ever went there once to get some smoko and there was lots of darkened rooms with young half naked guys hanging round , I even seen a guy from school there and he said " Don't tell anyone you seen me here ! "
Col was an older guy who looked like John Lennon and even had the same round spectacles , he wasn't obviously gay and never " put the word " on any of us and I think that was why everyone called him Poofy Col just to remind you.
Col had his asian tranny girlfriend with him and the foam esky was full of pot , he had just arrived and had to lug his gear in as well to the other side of the concert site , he spotted the Woy Woy mob and thought we might like to help him lug in and we of course obliged in return for some of what was in the esky.
So we carried Poofy Col's gear in across the sea of tents like some kind of hippy African safari expedition , single file with our loads on our heads , Col and the tranny out front directing and weaving us through the masses of tents and people.
We returned to the safety of our campsite as the psychedelics started to kick in , one of the lads had fallen asleep which is probably not a good thing to do while tripping and we hatched a cruel plan for him for when he awoke , we would tell him it was Monday and that he had slept all weekend and missed everything ,we even told everyone within a 20 meter radius of our tent that if they seen a guy asking what day it was , they were to say Monday !
Then we woke him up - laughter ensued as the poor guy desperately asked everyone what day it was " It's Monday mate you missed Def Leppard last night they were awesome "
We then observed some going ons across the dam in Old Sydney Town , Old Sydney Town was a life sized replica of Sydney town back in colonial days complete with actors who played the parts of convicts and soldiers etc
Some of these actors were picking up the females who were pretending to scream and run with them down a grassy slope and throw them in the long grass near the fence to the concert , then they were sneaking under the fence !
Not long after the Police appeared on the other side of the fence and were checking the concert out , one lark walks down to the fence and gives them the finger and some obscenities, then another and another.....
Within minutes hundreds of concert goers are lined along the fence stirring up the cops , people were baring their arses and giving the bird , people waving bags of pot and general mayhem.
The cops weren't allowed on site unless the owners requested it and they never came in - how times have changed
Then there was the guy who had just bought a fake dope plant in a plastic pot at the markets and came back to camp to present it to those at the circle , we decided to set it up as some kind of altar god to worship and the guy knelt before it on the ground and said " O master what shall we call you ? " and he gazed blearily up into the heavens.
At that same time a small Cessna airplane with an advertising banner was flying over the concert site - Robert Plant Hordern Pavillion Nov 18
" Robert Plant ! "
