Well That's An Interesting Point!
A while back I was listening to a debate in which a design advocate stated that there are zero observed examples of macro-evolution, or change from one species to another. Well that's an interesting point, I thought to myself. Finch's beaks, peppered moths, resistance to antibiotics, common examples of micro-evolution, or change within a species as offered as evidence to support a higher concept of change that explains everything. I've also heard it said that when people look at fruit flies, where there are short observable generations and those fruit flies are subject to radiation, that their genetic structure repairs itself rather than remain damaged through subsequent generations. Does anyone know of an example of observed change from one species to another? Just a suggestion, but pay attention when people are citing examples of evolution. Is that change within or change without?
