Darwin’s “tree of life” is the idea that all life descends from a common ancestor. But that just doesn’t match the observable evidence—there’s no known biological mechanism that changes one kind into another.
But the “creation orchard view,” based on the Bible’s history, does explain what we see.
You see, the Bible says God created organisms according to their kinds. So one kind won’t change into another kind. But God created amazing genetic diversity into each kind. So kinds can adapt and fill the earth. But horses remain horses, dogs remain dogs, and cats remain cats.
In other words, lot’s of variety, reproducing according to their kinds.
