Creation Spotlight

The Duck-Billed Platypus After Its Kind

The duck-billed platypus is a very unusual creature. It is classified as a mammal because the mothers produce milk for their young, but they also lay eggs, one of only two mammals, monotremes, that do that. Platypuses combine traits that normally don’t go together, a bill like a duck, tail like a beaver, poison like a snake, eggs like a turtle and the milk that makes it a mammal.

When platypuses were first sent back to Europe from Australia, they were thought to be fakes, a hoax manufactured by a clever Chinese taxidermist. European scientists didn’t believe that the platypuses’ traits could all exist within the same animal, but they do.

Platypuses are about the size of cats. They live in burrows along streams, rivers and lakes in eastern Australia, although they spend a great deal of their time in the water. They live on small water creatures, even having  the  ability  to  detect  electrical discharges from their prey in order to be able to find them in the dark.

At first glance it would seem that the platypus should be the poster animal for evolutionism, but interestingly enough it isn’t. An animal that combines traits several different orders of animals would seem like the perfect answer to Creationists who ask evolutionists for an example of a transitional, half-and-half, animal, but evolutionists don’t use it for that.

The central belief of the religion of evolutionism is that animals are capable of unlimited change. Their story is that after the first cell somehow appeared out of the primordial ooze, that cell somehow mutated into the countless varieties of life that have existed. Unfortunately for the evolutionists, the facts tell a very different story. The fossil record shows no evidence of any significant change having happened to any creature in the fossil record. Even Charles Darwin realized that the fossil record didn’t help his story saying, “the fossil record is the strongest argument against my theory”. But surely in the last 140 years the situation has changed? But not so, as a quote from a leading evolutionist, David Raup, shows “Conflicts Between Darwin and Paleontology”, p 23, “Instead of finding the gradual unfolding of life, what geologists of Darwin’s time and geologists of the present day actually find is a highly uneven or jerky record; that is species appear in the sequence (fossil record) very suddenly, show little or no change during their existence in the record, then abruptly go out of the record.” What both Darwin and Raup are admitting is that the fossil record does not support the evolution story they tell. There is no fossil evidence of the changes that the religion of evolutionism requires.

So why don’t evolutionists use the platypus in their story telling?, because it isn’t changing. The fossils of platypuses show the same kind of animal that exists today. Existing platypuses are also not changing. They are not becoming more like any of the animals that they share features with. What we see today is an animal that has been exquisitely designed to do what it does. The duck-billed platypus is another example how God created a rich and varied, even comical, world.  

The evidence for God’s Creation can be as great as a star or as small as a platypus.
