Cats and Continents

on September 1, 2018

DNA sequencing reveals that saber-toothed cats from North America and Europe belong to the same species. Two of the three Homotherium specimens tested came from North America, and one came from Europe. They all have dates associated with the Ice Age, which occurred shortly after Noah’s Flood.

Saber-Toothed Cat

Biologists would normally expect cats that crossed an ocean and spread over two continents to diversify into different species, especially in the evolutionary time frame. A more reasonable explanation for this similarity is that the cats came from the same stock around 4,350 years ago, as the cat kind spread from Noah’s Ark in obedience to God’s command to fill the earth. They arrived in both Europe and North America nearly simultaneously, before enough generations passed for significant differences to develop.
