The answer to this question is the same as the answer to the question, "What does 'kind' mean?"

In other words, the answer is, "Whatever we need it to be so that we can cling to the meaningless distinction between 'micro' and 'macro.'"

But that still isn't a definition of "kind."

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. -- Thomas Jefferson

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

Howling about evidence is a conversation stopper, and it never stops to think if the claim could possibly be true -- foreveryoung
