Starting from the time of Adam, mankind has been describing and classifying his surrounding world. 'Created Kinds, Baraminology, and the Creation Orchard' is an introduction to the general evidence of the Creator, the value of life as seen through the Scriptures, and a scientific perspective on the classification of plants and animals based on the concepts of Creationism. The scriptural aspects of created kinds introduces the Creator and explores the differences between plants, animals, and man. It also examines the meaning and limits of created kinds at the time of creation, during the flood, and today. The scientific aspects of baraminology, the study of created kinds, explores the methods of delineating the created kinds, the amount of variation that can occur within a kind, and determining what those kinds look like today. The social aspects of scriptural and athiestic beliefs explores the implications it has on our stewardship of the world and decisions on what benefits or harms life. The Creation Orchard is a depiction and listing of the distinct kinds of plants and animals. It helps demonstrate the relationshipb between kinds and the species within a kind. It is hoped that this book will help defend the believer’s faith from the modern day attacks of secular science and encourage the believer to build a closer relationship with the Creator.

About the Author
Along with the general concepts of Young Earth Creationism, this book brings forth innovative ideas. First is the Katagenos Species Concept which defines how species fit within a Kind including the concepts of Environmental Acclimation and Heritage Mating. Second, is the Linnaean based Natanzera Classification System which focuses on listing the distinct created kinds separately from one another. Third is the work in developing the Floral Formula as a method of determining flowering plant kinds. All of these concepts work together to more accurately depict the Creation Orchard free from the assumptions of the evolutionary Tree of Life.
