Genesis 1:24-25 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
Again, we have yet another multitude of animals and creeping things without number on the earth. What an enormous number of varieties we have and purposes and designs. That is on top of all the species He created in day five. And they inhabit the entire globe of 197,000,000 square miles or 509,000,000 square kilometers of earth’s surface of which seventy percent is water just like our bodies. That makes the land mass at 59,100,000 square miles or 154,800,000 square kilometers for beasts and creeping things. The rest is for the birds and fish to this point in what we are loosely calling “time”.
