On the Origin of Kinds …

Compare Creationism’s view of:

On the Origin of Kinds by Special Creation and the Preservation of Mankind by the Creator – Subtitle of Todd Elder’s Book

to Evolutionism’s view of:

On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life – Title of Charles Darwin’s Book

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

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 creationists 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.
