Log Rafts and Animal Dispersion

Biogeography is the expensive word for how critters became spread around the world, and it is studied by both secular and biblical creation scientists. Creationists suggest models of how living things reached their destinations after — or during — the Genesis Flood. Proponents of universal common ancestor are left treading water with no answers.

The floating log raft model for animals spread around the world is being developed, and some secular scientists are admitting to some aspects of the model.

We have discussed animal dispersal before including the red fox, and also material on how animals can raft across oceans, including observed of animals using whatever was available to travel the Pacific after a tsunami. Evolutionists and atheists have ridiculed the idea of floating log rafts and the like, but some are hitching a ride on this concept.

Mat and raft concepts have been floating around for many years. Dr. Steve Austin presented a floating mat model for coal seams, and others began developing this model for animal and plant biogeography. The following article discusses some of the history of the model, its continuing development, and how evolutionary explanations fail.
One of the more regular accusations hurled at creationists is that the animals that came off the ark could not have reached the remote areas of the world, such as islands and the Americas after the flood. This paper will discuss the shortcomings of evolutionary ideas regarding biogeography and demonstrate how a creation model fits what we observe today.
