Braminology is a creationist system of classification of organisms into groups or baramins. The idea of a baramin was proposed in 1941 by Frank Marsh, but was criticized for a lack of formal definition.[1] In 1990 Kurt Wise and Walter ReMine introduced baraminology in pursuit of acceptable criteria for membership in a baramin.[1]

ReMine's work specified four groupings: holobaramins, monobaramins, apobaramins, and polybaramins. These are, respectively, all things of one kind; some things of the same kind; groups of kinds; and any mixed grouping of things.[2]These groups are similar in name to the concepts of monophyly, paraphyly, and polyphyly used in cladistics. Conditions for membership in a (holo)baramin and methods of classification have changed over time. These include the ability to create viable offspring, and morphological similarity. [3] [4] Baraminologists deny universal common descendand the emergence of new families and higher taxa.

The baraminology articles of creationist wikis Conservapedia and CreationWiki strangely conatains materials copied from Objective Ministries, a parody site and CreationWiki article even containsa link to the Orihinal article. [5] [6] [7] [8]
