    and a few marsupials in South America?  (apart from "God put them there?").  Marsupials include several species of possums, wallabies, gliders, koalas, kangaroos, bettongs, wombats....

      The Creationists have lost the original Word of the Creator-God Allah YHWH and depend on the translations which could be more accurately described as mistranslations of the Word Revealed; hence their misunderstanding of the meaning of the Word revealed.

        It certainly is amazing just how much reality is a "mistranslation of the Word Revealed."  smile

      Another point, how did they walk all the way to Australia from Turkey after the flood without leaving any colonies of marsupials along the way? Why didn't Skippy's great great great...........grandad say "Strewth this is a long way cobber. I reckon I'll settle here in India and have vindaloo instead"?

    I'd be more interested in hearing you explain a platypus.

      Yep... that has merit... But the strangest Aussi Creation has to be Tasmanians.. hmm
      They originally had 2 heads and many a fair dinkum Aussi will confirm that!
      I've gota take my hats off to Eric and Eric for posting his photo on this site.... They usually don't like talking about it.. let alone showing their twin heads! sad

        Pearldiver,

        Not only did they originally, I confirm being an Aussie and a Melbournite (we are just north of Tasmania for those geographically unaware)......they still have two heads.

              Caps then! Sell caps! They can wear them backwards and pretend they're Americans living in Tasmania.

    And on the 7th day God created Marsupials and Marmalade...

      ...and ate Vegemite, verily. smile

        Sounds good to me. I like marmalade and Vegemite but not together. God might like them together. Did HE have them on toast with butter? Verily I would say so.

        That black crap that looks like used axle grease can be eaten???

          I eat it but I have always had a cast iron stomach. Maybe being brought up on Vegemite does mean you can eat just about anything.

    There was more going on during that flood in the time of Noah than we think.

    It appears this thread is not going to attract any creationists to explain marsupials concentrated in Australia.
    So verily, I say to you wise and wonderful Aussies who have gathered here, how do YOU explain CREATIONISTS lol ????

        I'd explain creationists, but I would rather a Vegemite sandwich instead big_smile

        1. Rod Marsden profile image73
          Rod Marsdenposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I'll take your Vegemite sandwich, add a cheese slice and toast it. Then it will really be worth eating.

          Creationists are very creative. That is why they are called creationists. We need creative people though it would be nice if they could tell the difference between fantasy and reality or past reality.

          Apparently nowadays there were dinosaurs on Noah's ark. I am not sure how the crew stopped the T-Rex's from eating everything including Noah but I'm sure those creationists have come up with some explanation.

          If you want a yarn spun go to a creationist. If you want science go elsewhere.

            If you want great creationism, its called Vegemite.
            If you want great science, its called 'eating vegemite and cheese sandwiches'

            lol

      and while we're at it, how did the giant flightless bird, Moa come to be in New Zealand?  Now extinct because the first settlers (Maori) ate them all!
