One of the more cunning disputes of Creationists is the quibble over what is a “kind”. Does a Lion and a Tiger represent 2 kinds? Or are they in fact just ONE kind of “big cat”? Well then, is a domestic cat PART of this ONE kind? Who really knows…
But in the history of Whales … we can see MULTIPLE kinds! There was the land-based mammal. That’s certainly a kind.
But then this land based creature started hunting food in the water. Same kind, I suppose, right?
But then this creature started evolving into something more than an otter … he started to develop fins instead of arms.
Same kind now? And instead of his lungs connecting through the nose and mouth, this animals lungs started connecting through a shifted nose, at the top of his head! Still the same kind?
At some point, this creature stopped bearing offspring on land … and gave birth to them in the ocean. STILL the same kind? Hardly.
In the video from the link below, they focus all their Evolution discussion on the Whales !
The “Independent Lines of Evidence” slide below comes from the excellent video in the link!
I think you fill find the video one of the best! Brought to you by the clever people at BioLogos !!!
