Genesis 1:24-25 Day 6, Land Animals

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.

Day six of creation brings land animals to life. Per usual, God’s order and man’s order are different. The following observations are courtesy of Ken Ham.

Bible: Trees before land animals

Science: Land animals before trees

Bible: Birds before reptiles

Science: Reptiles before birds

Bible: Whales before land animals

Science: Land animals before whales

Bible: Mammals (cattle) before “creeping things”

Science: Insects before mammals

Bible: Reptiles were created after birds

Science: Birds evolved from reptiles

There are three “kinds” or categories of animals listed in these two verses: cattle, beasts, and creeping things. Again, there is the phrase, “after their kind…” The word to consider is “kind”. It is the Hebrew word “miyn”. It means kind or species. In this case, it is applied to land animal life.

The land animals have “nephesh” just as the sea creatures and birds of day five. Nephesh is the Hebrew word for “creature” in the above verse. Strong’s Concordance defines nephesh as: soul, self, life, creature, person, appetite, mind, living being, desire, emotion, passion, that which breathes, the breathing substance or being, the inner being of man.

God saw this was good or “towb” in the Hebrew. Strong defines “towb” as good, pleasant, agreeable (to the senses), pleasant (to the higher nature), excellent (of its kind), rich, valuable in estimation. Everything was made in total perfection prior to the creation of mankind.

Darwin himself in his 1859 book The Origin of the Species did not actually address how species originated. The creation of species he later called an “abominable mystery.” Science clings to this man’s views as the foundation of their work and world view.

God created the world in His order. God’s order is not the same as science. Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
