Again, i was speaking figuratively Ron. Im well aware that the platypus is a mammal. But a very ancient mammal at that. It lays eggs.
Again, I say Ã¢â‚¬Å“so what?Ã¢â‚¬Â The platypus lays eggsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ It has never been proven to do anything else. And, as far as being ancient mammal? That is speculationÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
What, in Gods name, was the big guy thinking when he made it?
We can always ask Him when the time comes
"I know... im going to really get them going with this one. This beast will be a mammal, but - and heres the joke - its going to, lay eggs".
Once more, I say Ã¢â‚¬Å“so what?Ã¢â‚¬Â The beast will be the beast. And whether or not it propagates is (again) pure speculation.
and to top it off
"Lets make sure that, after the flood, Noah drops off mr and mrs platypus, and all the other monotremes and marsupials, in one place, geographically isolated from their placental brethrin."
It matters not where Noah dropped Mr. and Mrs. Platypus, neither of us was on hand to support or refute how it happened, therefore anything we say outside of that experience (in a snide manner or no) is pure speculation.
Of course!!! what could make more sense?
Of course the person who doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want it to make sense, will not allow it to make sense.
Here we have distinct, genetically and geographically isolated clades of mammals, and how can we explain it?
Not having been around to empirically support or refute what or how these things happened, presuppositionalist opinion (even given in elitist mannerisms) is nothing more than that, opinionÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Well....Noah kinda just took a wrong turn in the pacific and landed in australiasia.
Well, you kind of took a wrong turn in your presuppositive argument.
Does YEC have an admittedly less cynical version of historical events?
Does atheism have other than an unsupported and less faith based belief system for their evolutionary religion system?
