How did Noah know which species were clean several thousand years before God imparted those laws to Moses?And if Noah knew about “clean” animals, why wasn’t that knowledge passed down through the generations?OK, how about “kinds”: Two of the dog “kind,” two of the antelope “kind,” two of the elephant “kind,” two of the diplodocus “kind,”ad finitum?
Some, after thinking about it long and hard, arrive at a definition of “kind” that is indistinguishable from “species.” But that doesn’t solve the problem of way too many animals on the boat.
