God Must Have a Sense of Humor

I think once in a while I am going to write articles like this. Pointing out things in Creation or, just in life itself that indicates that God must have a sense of humor.

I think also about the Platypus. I think God had a great time while creating this Creature.

The Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) is a semi-aquatic mammal endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania. Together with the four species of echidna, it is one of the five extant species of monotremes, the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. It is the sole living representative of its family (Ornithorhynchidae) and genus (Ornithorhynchus).
The bizarre appearance of this egg-laying, venomous, duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed mammal baffled European naturalists when they first encountered it, with some considering it an elaborate fraud. It is one of the few venomous mammals; the male Platypus has a spur on the hind foot that delivers a venom capable of causing severe pain to humans.

Another reason why I particularly find the Platypus to be so fascinating is that evolutionist's have had a terrible time trying to figure out what it descended from. I think God knew when he made the Platypus. He knew in the future that these foolish humans he created would come to deny their origin, and make up their own theory for how the world began. So God figured..."Why not throw a monkey wrench into their theory." And Thus was the creation of the Platypus thought up.
I hope you enjoyed this little rant about Platypi, and I hope you learned something!
