How Much Variety?


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, a publisher of the award-winning family magazine, Answers .


Yesterday we learned there’s a tremendous amount of variety within the DNA of the kinds God made. But just how much variety is there?

Well, I like to use dogs as an illustration. Stop and think about dogs you know. Some are big, some are small. Some have floppy ears; some have long noses. Some dogs run fast; others are great retrievers. There’s tremendous variety within our dog breeds.

And humans have bred all this dog variety in just a few hundred years. It happens by selectively breeding for desired traits. We don’t add or create anything new. We simply breed out variety … until we get what we want.
