According to the origins model used by creation scientists, modern kangaroos, like all modern animals, originated in the Middle East[1] and are the descendants of the two founding members of the modern kangaroo baramin that were taken aboard Noah's Ark prior to the Great Flood. It has not yet been determined by baraminologists whether kangaroos form a holobaramin with the wallaby, tree-kangaroo, wallaroo, pademelon and quokka, or if all these species are in fact apobaraminic or polybaraminic.

Also according to creation science, after the Flood, kangaroos bred from the Ark passengers migrated to Australia. There is debate whether this migration happened over land[2] -- as Australia was still for a time connected to the Middle East before the supercontinent of Pangea broke apart[3] -- or if they rafted on mats of vegetation torn up by the receding flood waters[2].

Excellent phrasing - I really like how fundys are so stupid!

Got to tip the hat to Noah and his sons!  I guess that's why roos walk around on 2 legs too - a cross between a horny old shepherds and some kind of weasel... sort of like Ken Ham.

Not sure I could do a roo... it would be like doing Ann Coulter.

Yeah, I always wondered how creationists explained how marsupials and monotremes just happened to wind up in Australia. It's not like they're even especially well-suited for the environment. Look how the placentals like rabbits and rats have wreaked havoc after being introduced Down Under. One creationist did try to spin it as "God was trying to create a safe haven for Marsupials."

That's funny, he didn't seem to be so considerate about the post-Fludde fate of ALL DINOSAURS...

A look into DAVE HAWKINS' sense of honesty:

"The truth is that ALL mutations REDUCE information"

"...mutations can add information to a genome.  And remember, I have never said that this is not possible."

The carnivorous dinosaurs were specialized on marsupial prey.

But the were too heavy for the vegetal rafts, so they couldn't follow the mar-soups to Oz-trail-yer.

And starved.  Sometimes Creators have to make tough choices, just like Oh Carol Clouser is lobbying for her God to do now between the cruel hyenas and the cute zebras...

Not sure how the dearth of plant-eating dinosaurs is explained, but I'm sure the "brains" at AiG are working furiously even as we speak...

Argh! Wrong thread!
