WHAT??? Flippant?!?!?!
What exactly is it about my suggestion that kangaroos walked on water to get to DownUnderLand after the Great Deluge that you think isn't serious?
I'm appalled. by that green background anyway...
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." ___________________________________________________________ /There, fixed that for them. /You are supposed to edit these things, aren't you? /Best,/Charles /apologies for being brash//sort of _______________________________

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."
