Uh.. I think it's in the back somewhere...
"And thou shalt have a paddle among thy weapons; and it shall be, when thou sittest down abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee."
Basically, poop in a hole and bury it; don't just crap on the ground and leave it there.
God makes categories of animals, and he doesn't grump about how we find mammals in the sea and birds who walk on the ground. He creates diversity and is surely aware that there are no sharp delimiters in behaviours (unless you think whales and dolphins, penguins and emus, bats, etc, were from a separate creation not described above?)
Then, in Genesis 27, when the bible states, So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them,' it's clear that all people are in his image, meaning he's not strictly male nor female.
Why would you suddenly affix sharp edges to your interpretation, instead of the diversity and overlapping definition that is clear from every other sentence?
