Sorry, no etymologies found.
If you think transpeciation has occurred, then why quote Huxley saying that the fact that it has not been observed is a problem for Darwinism?
If transpeciation occurs, what is intelligently designed?
I very much prefer it whehn IDers make specific statements that can be tested, rather than waving their arms about vague assertions such as “transpeciation” and “chromosomal changes”.
We deduce these things from a fossil record which may or may not clearly show transpeciation…it isn’t clear…
Â I’m not just trying to nitpick here; I just think your use of the word ‘evolution’ doesn’t distinguish in any way between these ‘changes’ and normal variation in a stable species, to say nothing of what is normally understood to be evolution: i.e., transpeciation–moving across the species boundary.
