When God created the universe, He mandated that all living things should reproduce after their own kind. The Hebrew word for kind is min and literally means type and, of course, kind. Well what is a kind? A kind is a group of something that all have similar characteristics. For example, a Grizzly Bear, a Polar Bear, and a Black Bear are all part of the kind of bear. Genesis is very clear that God created everything after their own kinds and ordered them to reproduce after their own kinds. Below is a list of every occurrence of the word kind in Genesis 1.
Genesis 1:11, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.”
Genesis 1:12, “And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
Genesis 1:21, “And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
Genesis 1:24, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.”
Genesis 1:25, “And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
Evolution states that each animal evolved from some other kind of animal. Man evolved from apes, birds evolved from dinosaurs, mammals evolved from fish, etc, etc, etc. The phrase “after his kind” proves evolution wrong. Genesis 1 teaches that God created grass, herbs, trees, whales, birds, cattle, creeping things, and every living thing after their kind. God did not use the process of evolution to create His creatures. He spoke by the word of His mouth and a whale was created. He spoke by the word of His mouth and a monkey was created. He spoke and the crow was created. A fish cannot become a mammal, because a fish is of a different kind, than a mammal. Therefore, evolution is not in harmony with what Genesis 1 teaches us. One cannot be a theistic evolutionist for God created each living thing after their own kind. God created it, it did not evolve into different kinds.
