Not a problem. The fossil record clearly indicates that plants and animals reproduce after their kind, just as the Bible describes.

"Kind" is not a scientific term. And the meaning in the Bible has become more fuzzy as the Bible is translated into different languages,

Can you please describe what you mean by "kind" -- starting with its use in the original language of the Bible and tracing its etymology to the current colloquial use of the word and any potential rigorous scientific application?

'Kind' cannot be a 'scientific' term by definition because it is not based in philosophical naturalism. Truth by definition is not any rational support for evolution.

"Can you please describe what you mean by "kind" -- starting with its use in the original language of the Bible and tracing its etymology to the current colloquial use of the word and any potential rigorous scientific application?"

A 'kind' is a group of interbreeding species, of which there are multitudes of examples.
