|Not a boomerang , This is an Egyptian ceremonial wand|
Boomerang is the term used by Australians for the weapon used by Australian Aborigines , it is derived from the Aboriginal word wo-mur-ang which dates from 1798.

The throwing sticks found in Egyptian royal tombs are Egyptian objects , the Egyptians used throwing sticks as melee weapons in battle and for hunting birds and water fowl.

The existence of similar weapons in Egypt and Australia prove no connection , the Australian Aborigine is one of the few cultures that did not develop the bow and arrow which was a primary weapon of the Egyptians and they certainly did not use any metal weapons , throwing sticks evolved into similar shapes in different cultures just like the spear and shields for example.
The statement made by fringe theorists is another throw away theory that when examined has no factual basis.
