Genesis 1:21 “And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the
waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind:
and God saw that it was good.”
Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them
have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and
over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Passages like these build a case for a Biblical model of biology.
