Don Esty, through the process of evolution. If you don't believe in evolution look up the kangaroo or wallabies that evolved into a new species (could not mate reproductively with the species it evolved from) in only 14 or 17 generations. God's plan is unknown to man and He works in wondrous ways, remember?
