What Are the Created "Kinds"?

with James Orme

James Orme - click for bio

The Bible states that God created animals to reproduce "after their kinds." Noah took at least two of each land animal on the Ark, "after their kinds." Creationist scientists interpret this to mean not two wolves, two hyenas, two dingos, two coyotes -- but two of the dog "kind," which then reproduced after the "dog kind" to produce the variety of canids we now have. But how can anyone determine what constitutes a "kind"? It affects how many animals had to inhabit the Ark! Also, evolutionists question how so many "species" of the basic kinds could develop in a only few thousand years after the Flood. Come get answers!

Jim Orme is an electrical engineer, retired after 34 years in the telecommunications industry. He was a member of the MCF Board of Directors until his move to northern Wisconsin. MCF's meetings in the Wheaton area were restarted under Jim's leadership, after they had been absent for some time. In 2014, he founded the Northwoods Creation Association. [more]

He and MCF had the privilege of working with Ken Ham on the first Chicago area Back To Genesis Seminar in 1989. His favorite topic to teach is the six days of creation.

John has made his living for 34 years as a chemist in product development, resulting in three patents for his work on chemical product formulations.

YouTube Videos of Origin Summit 2016 at Arizona State University

Click for video on YouTubeThe April 19-20 meetings with Dr. Charles Jackson and Dr. Kevin Anderson were recorded. The videos are a bit "jerky" but the presentations were very informative! They are available here. The sponsors did not include MCF, but two of our Board members are active in Creation Summit, one of the sponsors. The "hottest" topic of the four presentations is probably "Echoes of the Jurassic": Dr. Anderson's own research into the unfossilized dinosaur remains that he and Mark Armitage unearthed. (And for mentioning to grad students the implications of unfossilized tissues, Mark Armitage was screamed at and fired by an anti-creationist at California State University, Northridge.)
