Noah took two of every kind of land-dwelling, air-breathing animal on the ark. Now, research has put “kind” at the same level as “family” in our modern system of classification. This means Noah didn’t need two lions, two tigers, and two cats on the ark. He only needed two of the cat kind.
So how’d we get all the species we have today?
Well, God created each kind with incredible genetic variety, allowing them to adapt. It’s a wise design. It allows creatures to thrive in an ever-changing world, like the one after the flood. As the animals spread out from the ark, they adapted forming different species. That’s not evolution.
