Book Cover

Starting from the time of Adam, mankind has been describing and classifying his surrounding world. ‘Created Kinds, Baraminology, and the Creation Orchard’ is an introduction to the general evidence of the Creator, the value of life as seen through the Scriptures, and a scientific perspective on the classification of plants and animals based on the concepts of Creationism.

The scriptural aspects of created kinds introduces the Creator and explores the differences between plants, animals, and man. It also examines the meaning and limits of created kinds at the time of creation, during the flood, and today.

The scientific aspects of baraminology, the study of created kinds, explores the methods of delineating the created kinds, the amount of variation that can occur within a kind, and determining what those kinds look like today.

The social aspects of scriptural and athiestic beliefs explores the implications it has on our stewardship of the world and decisions on what benefits or harms life.

The Creation Orchard is a depiction and listing of the distinct kinds of plants and animals. It helps demonstrate the relationship between kinds and the species within a kind.

I have purposefully used some of the title of Charles Darwin’s book as the subtitle of this book to illustrate a point. The effects of Creationism and Evolutionism can be summed up quickly by comparing these titles.

On the Origin of Kinds by Special Creation
and the Preservation of Mankind by the Creator


On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection,
or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

The terms ‘natural selection’ and ‘struggle for life’ shows that evolutionary forces are the center of attention in that book. However, the terms ‘Special Creation’ and ‘Creator’ show this book comes from the opposite direction where preservation comes not through competition and survival, but through repentance, forgiveness, and the gift of eternal life. The use of ‘favoured races’ by Darwin and ‘Mankind’ by this book previews the worldviews that will develop even on life itself. Also, just to be clear, it was kinds (not species) that were created and what we call species today are merely the variations that occur within a kind.

It is hoped that this book will help defend the believer’s faith from the modern day attacks of secular science and encourage the believer to build a closer relationship with the Creator.

Creation Science League

It is a gathering of creationist speakers and organizations who have chosen to share at least some of their written or video materials freely. It is a group that has decided to actively participate in the fight of good and evil by promoting an understanding of creation and by taking a stand against the fallacy of evolution. Supporters of Creationism, both professional and non-professional, are encouraged to enroll and add to the messages we share. The Creation Science League is not a formal business or organization and participation is completely voluntary.

Todd Elder

Todd Elder was trained in taxonomic study and systems as part of his Conservation Major at Kent State University. He is using this to develop the Katagenos Species Concept and the Natanzera Classification System which more clearly shows the Created Kinds made by the Creator. He is also working towards a better understanding of the differences between plants, animals, and mankind. This is also a work to defend the Scriptural account of Creation and show that Evolutionism is a false view of the world.
