Can Animals Travel by Raft?

Sometimes, evolutionists want to throw down on biblical creationists by saying something like, "How did the animals spread all over the world after the Genesis Flood? Aha! I've got you!"

"No you haven't. There were land bridges, and some probably used rafts — "

"Hails of derisive laughter, Bruce!"

One explanation for migration of animals after the Genesis Flood is by rafting. In fact, such behavior is observed today - in our debris!

Naturally, there are plausible answers for animal migration, but tinhorns like that are more interested in ridicule than actually finding the answers that are easily found online, such as, "How Did Animals Spread All Over the World from Where the Ark Landed?" Now, I don't reckon that they set up a great adventure like in an animated movie or anything like that. Some were probably accidental trips, whether long distances or short ones.

One bit of observed support for the rafting idea is from our own trash. Those are little ones, but larger makeshift rafts are made through natural processes. Migration and diversity are not evidence for evolution. In fact, they are evidence of our Creator's design process.
A research study about floating plastic debris illustrates how animals can cross oceans on floating rafts.

It’s a huge worry: plastic waste floating in the ocean is harming whales, dolphins and other sea creatures. But it can also serve as a transportation system for small animals. A press release from the University of Florida explains how various species can hitch a ride on barnacles and mussels that are able to fasten onto slick plastic bottles.
