I guess not. But belief in the supernatual among aborigionals usualy involved burning the corpses, or leaving them in a cave.

Belief in the supernatual isn't a requirement for burial NO not at all...but the more primitive the person, the more that supernatural beliefs rule the roost. The dating alone would make this possibly eligible for the evolution ping list. at least it would wreak havok with the 'world is only 5000 years old' Creationists. How about it PatrickHenry?

"Belief in the supernatural isn't a requirement for burial."
Sometime about 120,000 years ago, our ancestors stopped leaving their dead laying where they dropped, and began burying them underground. Why do you suppose they started this practice? What was their "reasoning?"
