The whole paragraph.
|If evolution happened, one would expect to see gradual transitions among many living things. For example, variations of dogs might blend in with variations of cats. Actually, some animals, such as the duckbilled platypus, have organs totally unrelated to their alleged evolutionary ancestors. The platypus has fur, is warm-blooded, and suckles its young as do mammals. It lays leathery eggs, has a single ventral opening (for elimination, mating, and birth), and has claws and a shoulder girdle as most reptiles do. The platypus can detect electrical currents (AC and DC) as some fish can, and has a bill somewhat like a duck—a bird. It has webbed forefeet like an otter, a flat tail like a beaver, and the male can inject poisonous venom like a pit viper. Such “patchwork” animals and plants, called mosaics, have no logical place on the evolutionary tree.|
Yep, proof positive. I'll just check however to see if anybody else is looking into it....

The next best alternative places the platypus on the early ... Solving the evolutionary tree will not be the end of the study; rather it will be the start ...
|The Theria hypothesis holds that eutherians (humans, rats, pigs,|
whales, etc.) and marsupials (kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, etc.)
have evolved from a common ancestor, and monotremes (platypus,
echidna) have evolved from a different ancestor and on a separate
land mass. The mitochondrial method of studying evolution, however,
supports the Marsupionta hypothesis, which places the platypus and
kangaroo together. This controversy has lasted for more than two
centuries since the discovery that the platypus lays eggs.
"Our study is the first to provide statistically unambiguous results
in favor of classifying mammals using the Theria hypothesis, as
paleontologists have long done through studying fossils," Jirtle
said. "Now we need to retest the results generated by scientists who
have used mitochondrial DNA sequences to link mammals such as hippos
There are all sorts of interesting links out there but I can't find any scientists saying "Such “patchwork” animals and plants, called mosaics, have no logical place on the evolutionary tree."

I also mentioned that He'd have to give me a thorough explanation as to *why* I must "eat human babies".
if there are even critical flaws in Gauger’s work, the evo mat narrative cannot stand
