In an age so dedicated to denying any and all biological differences between male and female, today’s Animal Mates Matching Quiz may seem a little archaic. It harkens back to a simpler time. A time when animal classification was less complicated. More straightforward. Easier to understand. And guided by common sense.
When the LORD first created man and placed him in the Garden of Eden, He gave Adam a job to do — naming the animals around him. And mankind has been doing that job ever since. We even have a whole branch of science, taxonomy, that’s dedicated to naming and classifying living organisms. Taxonomists normally use long, hard-to-pronounce-and-even-harder-to-spell Latin names to differentiate one animal from the next.
So, maybe the scientific classification of animals is not so simple and straightforward after all. But the common names are easier to remember. Right?
