Model of Created Kinds

The Creator made the Heavens and the Earth including plants, animals, and man. He spoke them into existence in a literal seven day act of creation. This unique ability is found in the Hebrew word ‘bara’ which is used only of the Creator and never of man. Because they were spoken into existence, they do not have any ancestry nor was any evolutionary means involved.

The Creator made things to reproduce ‘after their kind’ represented by the Hebrew word ‘min’. While leaving some room for acclimation and variation within a kind, this suggests a limit to the amount of change that can occur within the descendants of the Created Kinds.

A ‘baramin’ comes from the words bara and min and represents a single Created Kind. The phrase ‘Genesis Kinds’ refers to the Kinds that were made during the Creation Week. The ‘Ark Kinds’ refer to those Kinds which would have been aboard Noah’s Ark.

The Theory of Created Kinds details the characteristics expected of Created Kinds. In summary, they include: no random generation of life from non-life, kinds / species fully formed and functional with no primitive ancestors, and gaps between forms of living and fossilized Kinds / species.
