Throughout scriptures are nuggets of scientific fact given to the people of the ancient world, but these facts were about things that they could not have fully understood when they received them. These hidden nuggets of truth are signs of the divine authorship of the Bible and GOD's interest in our knowing some of His secrets.
In the first chapter of Genesis God created plants and animals "after their kind".
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 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. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. Genesis 1:11, 21, 24
