Ya gotta wonder sometimes, what was God thinking, when he made the possum.
You don't know beauty unless you have a standard of beauty and ugly. So there has to be beauty for us to know what is non-beautiful. For the philosophers in the crowd, it's Aquinas' Fourth Way, or the argument from gradation of being. But everyone already knows that. This we call God.
The possum just happens to be on the ugly end of the scale.There is an uglier....I think the nutria wins the prize.
