    Actually, proto-scientific peoples divide animals into "kinds" that are 90%
    of the time identical to modern species for most birds and for any animals
    over the size of a rat. Given that the OT groups animals in a typical
    proto-scientific way and that the Hebrews were proto-scientific, they
    probably did the same. See Paul H Seely, "The Meaning of Min, 'Kind,'"
    Science & Christian Belief, 9:1 (1997), 47-56.
