for the time being i have decided to accept the Biblical view of Creation. So God created the whole shebang approx 6000 years according to Bishop Usher! There is no evolution. Just creation.

Given that Australia wasn't discovered until the 17th century, how did
the Aboriginals and the kangaroos get there, which are only native to
this part of the world?

Quite clearly Australia was discovered well before the 17th century, it
just wasn't discovered by Europeans until then.

We are told that during the Ice Ages (which I would place immediately
after the Flood) so much water was locked up in ice that land bridges
existed in various places - and the chain of islands that is presently
Indonesia was one of those land bridges.

Kangaroos in particular and marsupials in general are not exclusive to
Australia. There are things like jerboas which are anatomically similar
and have a similar means of locomotion. There are also a couple of
marsupials in South America. Long term isolation is an adequate
explanation for the development of kangaroos and wallabees, but it is
not clear, either from the Creationist or the Evolutionary points of
view why there should be so many marsupials in Australia. Is it
something in the air? Should we expect Australian women to become
marsupial some time in the next million years?

God bless,

Archbishop Ussher declared that the moment of Creation was in 4004 BC,
on March 15(?) at 3.00 o'clock(?) in the morning.

He was, of course, wrong. If you add up the genealogies in Genesis and
elsewhere, and combine them with modern historical knowledge, Creation
was in 3,900 BC, which means that we have approximately another century
to go before we reach the age of 6,000 years, after which comes the
Millennium.

In other words:
1) trust the Bible, not archbishops or theologians.
2) the theory of evolution is not completely wrong - there is
micro-evolution.
3) a simplistic view of creation is simply not tenable. The world and
the universe is vastly complicated and we have lots to learn - which we
won't do by shutting our eyes and switching off our brains.
