|An Evolutionary Theory|
For about three years Hayley and I have been hard at work developing our theory that kangaroos must surely have evolved from the tyrannosaurus rex. Some will argue to the contrary, but we have remained undaunted in our pursuit.
The most apparent evidence is of course the similarity in their appearance. Their tails, massive hind legs and useless withering forearms show with immediate clarity the obvious connection between these two creatures.
Dissimilarities in the two, for example the kangaroo’s body pouch and its lack of carnivorous teeth, do little to dissuade us. After all, there are noted scientists who have put forth the idea that in fact birds evolved from dinosaurs—a theory that is overwhelmingly preposterous in that there are innumerable differences between these species—yet they have made significant money selling books and giving lectures on this notion.
It is after all, ev·o·lu·tion: n. A gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex or better form. This better form, the kangaroo, is evidenced in its gentler, less violent tendencies (a most admirable trait) and the development of its pouch to give nurturance and protection to its young. One might venture that this is the quintessential demonstration of evolution. Look up “evolution” in a dictionary in the future and one may very likely find the above picture.
repeated argument against the t-rex/kangaroo theory is geography. Fossils of the
t-rex are prevalent in Alberta, Montana and the Dakotas. Kangaroos are not known
to have lived outside of Australia. While this fact may appear to be convincing,
it can be dismissed when one considers the regrettable fact that dinosaur fossil
hunters have, to date, perhaps, overlooked kangaroo skeletons in North America and
like wise, are not known to conduct digs in Australia for t-rex bones.
Unfortunately, our opportunities have come and gone to gather this proof. While
Development of this theory is in its infancy. As research continues and new evidence is brought to bear, we will solidify this very plausible event in the evolutionary annals. The information thus far stated here, should give the naysayer, at the very least, something to think about.
On a related note, I have learned that kangaroo rats inhabit Alberta. Could this be evidence that the evolutionary process did not end with kangaroos? Do these small creatures signal a migration of kangaroos from Australia back to Alberta—a return to the mother ship, so to speak? Don’t get me started…
