Define Kind?
Hi Dr A,
Here's another article that may help a little; www.creation.com/ligers-and-wholphins-what-next

Basically it says that defining a kind as being a species is too narrow a definition, and that in some situations a kind may go up the taxonomic clasification as far as order. Because of differing amounts of speciation between the original created kinds, you cannot state that a 'kind' is equivalent to say 'family' across the board. One kind may extend back to family, another may go to order, and still another may be equvalent to genus.
