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.
