Latest Zonkey Is Evidence of the Genesis Principle of After Its Kind

Recently, a zebra mother and a donkey father gave birth to a zonkey in a private zoo in Crimea. Telegraph, as the zonkey is named, is the latest in a series of hybrids that at least to some extent call into question the validity of what we mean by a species.

Obviously, zebras and donkeys belong to the same Genesis kind.

Telegraph also lends support to the idea that the Genesis concept kind is a much wider concept than the biological term species.

Previously, I’ve written about a liger (lion + tiger), a geep (sheep + goat) and a cross between a grizzly and a polar bear.

These hybrids are evidence of the fact that animals reproduce after their kinds, just like Genesis tells us.
