The Bible and Biogenesis

The Scriptures describe biogenesis (the development of living organisms from other living organisms) and the stability of each kind of living organism:

Genesis 1:11-12: "Then God said, 'Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth;' and it was so. An the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself accordingly to its kind. And God saw that it was good."

Genesis 1:21: "So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good."

Genesis 1:25: "And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good."

The phrase "according to its kind" occurs repeatedly, stressing the reproductive integrity of each kind of animal and plant. Today we understand that this occurs because of these reproductive systems are programmed by their generic codes.
