Why is the ability to mate held as a positive indicator of
whether two species belong to the same baramin? Is that a
criterion determined by definition or by some scientific
evaluation? It seems to me that in assuming a designer is
active in biological genesis, one is hard pressed to determine
whether any particular organism or species was separately
created or shared common ancestors with another.
Couldn't a designer have created two species on two separate
occasions that had overlapping reproductive compatibilities?
And what about horizontal transfer or endosymbiosis?
