Christians and Christian scientist like me are being insulted that we cannot even explain and define the Biblical "Kinds".
That's partly because your "Biblical kinds" are not Biblical.
The Bible uses the word "kind" much as we do - e.g. "What kind of dog is that?"
For example, look at Leviticus 11:
  • "the kite after his kind"
  • "Every raven after his kind"
  • "the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind"
  • "the heron after her kind"
  • "the locust after his kind"
  • "the bald locust after his kind"
  • "the beetle after his kind"
  • "the grasshopper after his kind."
  • "the tortoise after his kind"
"What kind of bird is that?"
Notice that the hawk and the night hawk appear to be different kinds. Also the locust and the bald locust appear to be different kinds.
Each reproduces according to his kind or her kind. All of them had to be on the ark - no magical speedy differentiation after the Flood.

That's what the Duke of Wellington said, wasn't it? "I will choose the battleground to defeat Napoleon. I will go to Korea."
Or he could have gone to where Napoleon was.
It's easy to "defeat" your enemy if you don't actually confront him.

Have you ever watched the documentary of Sun Tzu, the Art of War in YouTube? Watch it and apply that to Evolution...
What I said was not about evolution per se. I said, "It's easy to "defeat" your enemy if you don't actually confront him." If you claim you can "defeat" evolution, you have to confront evolution where it is - i.e. you have to confront the actual Theory of Evolution, not a strawman that you've made up in your head.
