The Dreamtime Gods and Spirits of Oz


Australian Creator God/dess

Sexy Godsiblings of Creation and Confusion

There were two sisters and a brother, who emerged from the Underworld to set the world to rights. First they done good by creating the landscape of Australia and filling it with goodly things.

Then things went a little pear-shaped. The two sisters broke off pieces of their naughtiest bits to make sacred talismans. After that, legends abound and rebound and multiply — suddenly there are three sisters instead of two. What? Who? When? Did we fall asleep during the break?

The end result is always the same. For some reason, women follow men and a man has to come from somewhere. There also seems to be a great deal of confused similarity with the WAWALAG sisters. The wonderful wizards of Oz seem to make it up as they go along the yellow outback track.

See BILDJIWUAROJU. Or better still, drop us a line and explain the whole thing to us. This is not Godchecker’s finest hour. We have a headache.
