Some of these aborigines, we are told, have not made much progress since the ancient days of hunting.  These Aboriginal Australians of today perpetuate fear of ghosts, fear of the dark, and ancestor veneration, with a clan-centered religion.  In them you can see today the remains of ancient antisocial peoples.  They never developed a tribal government.  They never had slaves.  In some tribes of Australia early religious prayers preceded belief in spirits.  In these tribes, their superstitions prevent women from hunting and men from stooping to pull out a root, as it is considered bad luck.
