This is a formal complaint to Terry. Iain, Charles and George have given very flippant responses to a very serious article on roos and Ted is implying that I am of an age to have apoplexy.

What is this asa list coming to.

  "Also according to creation science theories wild unsupported speculations, 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 never
  connected to Europe by a land bridge similar to the one that connected Asia
  to America[3] -- or if they rafted on mats of vegetation torn up by the
  receding flood waters, or if they just hopped fast enough to walk on water like Jesus.[2]

  Another theory ad hoc conjecture is that God simply generated kangaroos into existence there."

  "To a naturalist nothing is indifferent;
  the humble moss that creeps upon the stone
  is equally interesting as the lofty pine which so beautifully adorns the valley or the mountain:
  but to a naturalist who is reading in the face of the rocks the annals of a former world,
  the mossy covering which obstructs his view,
  and renders indistinguishable the different species of stone,
  is no less than a serious subject of regret."
