If the platypus developed from some type of rat millions of years ago,
That's beyond lame and all the way to about a triple-amputee man of straw. "Some type of rat." That's Hovind misdirection at its finest - the last common ancestor of the Platypus and the rat scurried around the feet of early dinosaurs, if not a bit before the first dinosaur.

Re: More Fantasies by RAZD
Moreover, the human eye and the squid's eye have striking similarity even though there is no evolutionary relation between the two,
And equally striking dissimilarities....round iris vs. rectangular, focus by changing lens shape vs. moving the whole lens, photoreceptors on the backside of the retina vs. the front....and they grow completely differently: Squiidylink.
And please don't start about squid eyes being "designed" for low light deep in the sea. Whales and fish eat squid down there, y'know. With vertebrate eyes.
AbE: Thanks for the helicopter/Eiffel tower/etc. research, RAZD. I knew I smelled a stench, but it's bedtime.
