It should be remembered that such claims are always based on many assumptions (beliefs which cannot be proved to be true). Depending on which evolutionist is telling the story though, it could be 50,000 or 60,000 years—or even longer.
The perception is that 40,000 years somehow makes the Aborigines’ dispossession more immoral than if they had been here for only 2,000 or 3,000 years.
But the creationist explanation, that all the paintings are at most several centuries old, fits the facts at least as well—with no awkward contradictions like the fact that these rock paintings are seen to erode quickly in the absence of manmade dripshields.
Evolutionists sometimes say that at least some of the Kakadu paintings must be tens of thousands of years old, because they show animals which became extinct tens of thousands of years ago.
In fact, in another part of the same park one finds paintings of Europeans smoking pipes, and of sailing ships.
