i don't think creationists would eat corn of any kind, let alone popcorn, as god didn't create corn.

maybe they gnaw on some teosinte grass seed kernels...

Corn is a kind of plant that has been changed by selective seed planting. The basic structure that carries the units of heredity that is tansferred from the original kind is just producing selected results.

The plant we know as corn is a kind of grass. Over time it was selected to serve up plump grains which are seeds. This kind is like a flowering plant, but it produces seperate male and female flowering parts and the male structure produces pollen while the silks snag the pollen from the wind. It is a flowering grass but doesn't need insect pollinators. It is what it is and it is a chosen kind.

No, it is a flowering plant and it is in a family of kinds. Its potential was in it from the beginning to form the grain and man just brought it out. Similar plants are in this family like the lilie and the banana and even the palm tree and they have what they are within themselves.
