What is a "kind'
Now creationists do use scientific terms. They are not opposed to science in any way. However, they are opposed to some logic used by some scientists. Creationists don't oppose speciation. In fact they agree with it. They just believe that one "kind" of an animal doesn't evolve into another "kind". They believe there is a limiting capacity to the genome that was designed by the designer. That's what we see in nature.
This has been brought up a number of times in various threads. The term "kind" is less defined than any definition of species. Are all whales one kind, or are toothed whales a different kind? Are dogs, wolfs & coyotes the same kind or are they different kinds?
