    I'm not sure how that clarifies anything. If anything, it complicates this more.

    You said this was so simple a child could understand it. So you should be able to provide a simple definition and/or answer my follow-up questions, don't you think? I mean, you attempted to insult my intelligence, and yet you can't seem to explain what it is you're talking about.

    Why you refuse to answer my follow-up questions is a mystery.

    Genesis 7
    2 Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate,
    3 and also seven pairs of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth.


    Noah seemed to be able to tell what kinds God was talking about. I guess this sort of thing isn't everyone's cup of tea.

    Noah understood it well enough. He is the only one who ever really needed to.

    I already tried to explain it to you. I'm not going to write a book about it.

    I don't care if I understand it. You're the one with all the questions, not me.

    Thus Biblical "kind" is yet another unfathomable mystery that only Noah knew about but nobody can tell today. Duh. :rolleyes:

    You didn't understand Genesis 7?

    It clarifies nothing. It doesn't exactly illuminate anything you've said. Your lack of responses to direct questions also clarifies nothing.

    Your presented Bible verses do not define the word "kind".

    A few pages back the question was addressed.

    If you don't get Genesis 7 you'd probably best just forget about it. You don't need to know, anyway.

    Google it. That should help.

    I see you are well schooled in the ancient art of Back Peddling.

    Forget about it. It's not important, anyway. It's not a big deal. If you don't get it you don't get it.

    The problem is not my getting it or not.
    The problem is that you have not defined the word "kind" in any meaningful or useful manner.

    So the fail is yours, not mine

    You've got Google, right? I don't need to define anything for you.

    You and I have been going back and forth for a few pages and I'm still not any closer to getting any answers out of you. Why can't you just answer my questions? Why so elusive?

    You know what's really funny? Every conversation with anybody asserting "kinds" always seems to end up with the person giving up and/or resorting to insults when they fail to adequately explain themselves. Why is it so difficult to get a "simple" definition out of creationists? Perhaps now you can see why creationism isn't the slightest bit scientific.

    You started this thing by trying to insult my intelligence and now I see you were just using that as a deflection because you actually have no idea what you're talking about. And now you're just trying to rudely dismiss me.

    I'm sorry but you don't get to dictate to me what I need to know. And if you want to dismiss evolutionary theory and have anyone take creationism seriously, you creationists better start figuring out how to explain your terminology much better than this.

    Fact is, you can't define it.
    That is why all your Dodge City tactics.
