I've just inadvertently shared that on my wife's Facebook because the screen jumped as I was clicking something else. I blame platypussies.

I have to say, a bit carefully, because we have a couple here, that I just HATE arrogant, condescending believers of any kind. The kind that try to spread ridicule, but are really spouting nonsense.

(Oh, I know some skeptics also use that style, and it also ain't pretty!)

We do have deadly octopodes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue-ringed_octopus

And it's only the platypode males with the poisonous spur: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platypus_venom

Of course, neither are real, so our blithering OP reference should have no issue cuddling up to one of the above. His agonising demise would be purely an evilutionist propaganda tactic.

I don't know how common they are in the wild, but I saw one in a billabong in Victoria many years ago.......before computers were even a thing. I wonder why someone went to the trouble of making a model just to fool me, just a schoolkid at the time.

Lucky you. I've never seen a platypus in the wild, and just about every Australian marsupial, monotreme, reptile and mammal has been in my backyard.

I've seen splashes in rivers that may have been a platypus, but that's as close as I've got.

Its name is a fake, as the Encyclopaedia of Life reminds us.
The platypus was described scientifically for the first time by Dr George Shaw (1751-1813), who named it Platypus anatinus. Platypus is an anglicised Greek word meaning flat foot, probably referring to the web on its feet. Unfortunately this name had already been applied to a genus of beetles, so it had to be changed. Ornithorhynchus (bird-snout) replaced it.

Great video anyway. I'm convinced.
Oh come on, we all know that Australia is a hoax anyways. I mean really, Giant Rabbits that carry their offspring in a pouch? 9 of the world's 10 most deadly snakes? Giant Crocodiles that can live in the sea? A huge red plug in the middle to stop it from sinking? Inhabited for 40,000 years when it's neighbours haven't had humans for much more than 600!

Only a really idiot would fall for all of that sort of nonsense.

Yeah, the funny thing is it was seen and described in the scientific literature before Darwin or Wallace were even born.

The Devil was setting the scene for his future strategy of promoting evolution. A similar argument was advanced by Christians when their opponents pointed out that features of Christianity were anticipated by earlier religions. So, said the Christians, the Devil was mockingly imitating Christianity even before it came into existence. There's pure evil for you!

Trap door beavers, they lay in wait in a small dugout covered with surrounding debris. As you pass they pop up and gnaw your legs off.

Platypus being made up to support the theory of evolution is a weird proposal on many levels. Platypus are not particularly elegant examples of evolution IMO. There are no. extant transitional forms and platypus are one of only two living monotremes. The idea of having duck like beaks, webbed feet, and egg laying being all brought together in one animal is slightly more suggestive of a god on drugs and with a sense of humor than of evolution. Don't get me wrong- platipus are explained by evolution, but they are by no means the easiest example of evolution to present to an elementary school class.

I cannot tell if Hans is serious or satirical, but either way he has really captured the core of many conspiracy beliefs: "Hey, that looks odd to me given my ignorance and lack of education, experience, and understanding. Therefore it must be fake." Particularly amusing to me when applied to physics. APparently the real world must fit "common sense" so relativity and quantum mechanics must be wrong too.

Maybe it's because the platypus is as close as real life has gotten to the "crocoduck", the absence of which is often cited as proof that evolution isn't real.

Pretty funny, I thought. Looking at how many videos he has up it's remarkable how committed he is to this style of humor. Reminds me a bit of how long and thoroughly someone like Andy Kaufman or Ann Coulter would play out a gag.
