The platypus is not real

It's just a fake animal made up by evolutionists. It's a beaver with prosthetics.

This YouTube video totally blows this HOAX out of the water! WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!

Next thing is that they will be telling us is that Drop Bears aren't real......

Great video anyway. I'm convinced.

And according to the rest of his video pretty much every celebrity is transgendered and most male celebrities have secretely given birth. In fact this seems to be his primary focus with a couple of weird "animals are fakes" thrown in for variety. (Zebras are painted horses, toucans aren't real, Marlins are fake and Hemingway was a transgender, hey a twofer)

So he's either a conspiracy theoriest or a Tumblr Fanfic writer.

The Youtube channel is called "Conspiracies by Hans". Do you have anything to confess?

I was disappointed in that he kept repeating the "prosthetics" a dozen or more times. After a few times I really got that message and hoped for some more insight, but it didn't materialize.

I could actually feel my brain trying to crawl out through my ear to escape that stupidity.
At one point, a platypus bumps its bill on a branch while swimming, which proves it's a prosthetic because a real platypus would know it has a bill on its face. I guess this moron never stubs his toe, since he knows he has toes on the end of his foot.

He's claims to be a creationist - listen to some of his other 'they ain't real videos', perhaps he is parodying creationists?

Not very original. Wasn't this the same reaction of the scientists in the 19th Century when the first carcass or skeleton was brought back to London?

Of course, it's well known that there are fewer species than most people think; for example, otters are just wet cats.

Wow, this shows how deep the Evil-lutionists rabbit hole goes. They were priming the pump by faking animals long before the evolution hypothesis was officially unveiled by Darwin! This is PROOF that science is a Satanic Conspiracy.

Well, Wikipedia does say:

Quote:
The first scientists to examine a preserved platypus body (in 1799)[3] judged it a fake, made of several animals sewn together.[4]
See? Even scientists declared it a fake. Case closed!!!

That implies the plural should be "platypodes".

Platypus venom is not lethal to humans, but it is excruciatingly painful.

The guy forgot to include the massive liposuction that the beavers need before adding the prothstetics. I'm not sure, but I'm guessing beavers average around 45-50 pounds and a platypus maybe 7 or 8 pounds. Beaver liposuction in the name of Evil-lution, when will the madness end. Praise Jesus!

Nah, they just start surgeries and growth-stunting treatments on juvenile beavers.

Platy-puses -podes -pi are probably actually muskrats with prothstetics, rather than beavers with prothstetics. The size matches a lot closer.
