• Use of general terms for created things

• Meaning of "After its kind."
• Plants and
trees have seed "after its kind"
• Question
of fruit
Relationship.
• God created sea creatures and winged birds "after its kind"
• God made land animals "after their kind"
"After its Kind" is a celebration not a limitation
… Celebrating the fact that the blueprint
passes on to the offspring.

Creation of Animals
… Is this amount of change within the scope of "after its kind?"
… All directed by the same highly conserved hox gene package.
… So how do the evolutionary changes take place?
… And what is the actual mechanism for remembering "good" changes
as they occur? (Problem: it seems to require many coordinated changes.)

• Use of general terms for created things

• Meaning of "After its kind."
• Question of Relationship.
-The role of time in Environmental Preparation
-- gradual build-up of biomass and variety
to support advanced animals and man.

Question of Relationship.
"The Magnates Walk First"
Hugh Miller, 1850
Examples:
The complexity of the earliest fossil fish
• "Organizations of a higher order preceded many of the lower forms of animal life."
William Buckland, 1837
• "The very oldest [fish] species fall naturally into an order … not at the bottom,
but at the top of the whole class."
Edward Hitchcock, 1851

Question of Relationship.
"The Magnates Walk First"
Hugh Miller, 1850
Examples:
 The paradox of the Eukaryote progenitor
• "no grounds to consider any group of eukaryotes primitive"
• "most ... evolved from more complex ancestral forms by reductive evolution."
Koonin EV: Origin and early evolution of eukaryotes (2010)
9
Question of Relationship.
Do common gene packages imply a common ancestor?
Secular view: Only three ways:
1. Random chance.
2. Direct Gene-sharing
(Conjugation & Horizontal Gene transfer
Only observed in bacteria)
3. Common Ancestor.
Creationist view: Above Plus …
4. Genes re-use to create (some?) new species
(however done: physically, logically, etc.)
10
Question of Relationship.
Example: The Central Dogma.
• A Complex protocol involving complex gene packages
• Shared by all living species.
* TOO COMPLEX TO HAVE ARISEN BY CHANCE
MULTIPLE TIMES.
Thus a secular evolutionist concludes that
all of life derives from a single first living
bacterial cell.
 Too complex to have arisen even once by chance?
"It is mere rubbish thinking at present of the origin of life;
one might as well think of the origin of matter."
Charles Darwin (ltr, 1863)

LECTURE PART TWO
THE CREATION OF ANIMALS
DAYS FIVE AND SIX
• Comments on the Fossil Record and how it
relates to the Creation Narrative.
12
Creation Day Five
• Fifth Workday: Day Five
Task: Fill the Earth with Animals – Sea and Air
Day Five - Genesis 1:20-23
20 And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of
living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across
the expanse of the heavens.”
Coelacanth Latimeria
A "Living Fossil" for
over 360 Million years

Archaeopteryx
Jurassic (180 Ma)
13
Creation Day Six
• Sixth Workday: Day Six
Task: a. Fill the Earth with Animals – Land
Day Six A - Genesis 1:24-25
24 And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures
according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and
beasts of the earth according to their kinds.”
Livestock (Behemah) = Grazers? (cattle, sheep, hippotamus!)
Creeping Things = Burrowing animals, ground animals?
Beasts of the earth = Carnivores? Wild Animals, predators?
14
Creation Day Six
• Sixth Workday: Day Six
Task: b. Create Man (= "Adam") from Earth (Adamah)
Day Six B - Genesis 1:26-31
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.
And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea
and over the birds of the heavens
and over the livestock*
and over all the earth
and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
