I originally posted this as Message 382 in the Why are there no human apes alive today? thread as a response the following definition of "kinds," as presented by Mazzy:

A kind is the initial creation of God and it's decending progeny.

That seems to be fairly representative of the creationist position. I thus presented Mazzy with the following quiz, to see how one can use this definition to differentiate one kind from another. So far Mazzy hasn't replied, so I throw the question open to any and all creationists.

Can you tell me which of the following are different kinds and which are the same?

1. A dog and a wolf.

2. A macaw and a cockatoo.

3. Vibrio cholerae and E. coli

4. A termite and a cockroach

5. A tiger and a cheetah

Just to be clear, the question isn't just which pair belong to the same kind and which don't. I also want to know the standard or method being used to make that determination.


ABE: No help (yet) from anyone who actually knows the taxonomy.

Edited by ZenMonkey, : Corrected for using "is" when I meant "isn't."
