This is the third installment in my Species Were Designed to Change series. Here, I take the concept of a baramin (a “created kind”) and unpack it so that we can broaden our understanding of the range of possibilities inherent in this concept. God could have created a sexually reproducing baramin with only two individuals (like humans), or baramins with high or low diversity or with many or few individuals. He could have created a single baramin with a wide distribution or one that was broken up into discrete and isolated pockets. In the latter case, when members of those pockets did eventually manage to meet, a burst of speciation due to new gene combinations could have commenced. The possibilities are almost endless, which goes a long way to explain some pretty profound mysteries in paleontology.
