would a man on the street in, say, pensacola or edinbourgh still use the term Aborigine or would he call them Indigenous Australians?Maximilian (talk) , 30 June 2012 (UTC) In contemporary Australian English, "indigenous" is a collective noun which encompasses two groups: the Australian Aborigines (who inhabit the mainland and Tasmania) and Torres Strait Islanders, who, inhabit the islands of the Torres Strait. The Summerhayes article is "Human Adaptation and Plant Use in Highland New Guinea 49,000 to 44,000 Years Ago".Mainland indigenous Australians will often use the term Aboriginal, or else the name for their regional people in their local language, such as Koori etc. The article does not state that the colonisers of Sahul were Aborigines or Melanesians. There is nothing which supports the statement made in the conclusion of the Rasmussen article, even refuting the "to ~50,000 years B.Ozhistory (talk) , 1 August 2012 (UTC) There is substantial evidence that Australia was inhabited 50 000 to 40 000 BC, however there is a lack of proof these humans/hominids were the ancestors of Aborigines. P." Given the unreliability of the statement in the conclusion of Rasmussen et al, it suggests this article can not be used for date of arrival claims regarding Aborigines.

I found your objection regarding "supporting the hypothesis" not establishing a fact to be confusing.The infobox says "Religion: Majority Christianity, with minority following traditional animist (Dreamtime) beliefs and Islam." The source for this claim is a BBC article that estimates there are 1,000 Aboriginal Muslims in Australia, about the size of a large high school. I think it is misleading to list Islam in the infobox when there are so few Aboriginal adherents.
