Australia in Human & Dog Evolution

When you say "Australia" most Americans have a few things pop up in their heads. A Kangaroo and a Boomerang. Which brings up the unexplained phenomenon known as "Throwing Sticks". Most Historians will chalk this up to "They probably invented these things independent of each other out of necessity" and I would like anyone reading this to accept that theory, until you start to see correlations that are too strong to be coincidence. What a throwing stick is, is basically a curved stick for throwing, so you can hit a bird or small animal in the neck or back and knock it down. The Boomerang is basically an advanced version of a Throwing Stick. The ones in the picture are actually African (Egyptian) not Australian. They can also be found in Europe, Asia and the Americas, popping up around 10,000 BC.
Then, next as you may have been thinking after the throwing stick, comes the lineage of the Dog. The first Dogs were around Europe and Asia, which is also where the first Boomerangs/Throwing Sticks were, and the first dogs that they consider to be truly "domesticated" are the ones than got buried the same as humans. The first domestic dogs have also been found to have been on mostly sea food diets, which leads me to believe that the people that domesticated them had boats to fish on, and dogs may have even been fishing companions. Dogs are another strange phenomenon that no one can really explain why, but they are in Australia (Dingo), America (Carolina Dog) and Asia (Common Breeds). Another animal like this is the Opossum, which can only be found in America and Australia and I think they have a relative in Africa, like the tree Kangaroo or something.
And in New Guinea (just north of Australia) there is a special dog, the Singing Dog. it is known for being able to vocalize sounds that other dogs can not. It would be considered part of the Dingo species, but are just a little different.
Also in and around New Guinea is the Papuan people, who have a strange genome that scientists have not discovered the benefit of yet. They are also the only humans known to have any Denisovan DNA still, most of us only go as far back as Neanderthal. You probably automatically assume this makes them "worse" somehow, but what it means is that the planet has a genepool that might allow us to survive things we don't expect to even happen. When species are seperated for a long time, then come back together, sometimes it creates entirely new adaptations that were not available to either one before. They arrived where they are around the same time as the Mungo man.
The Abelam & Lani people are Papuan, and they, like tribes in Africa and America, celebrate the Yam, but no one knows how it got to these places.
The Bilibil tribe of the Papuan people are still known for traveling long distances in their canoes.
