    "Speciation is an evolutionary process by which a new species comes into being. A species is a group of organisms that can reproduce with one another to produce fertile offspring and is reproductively isolated from other organisms. Speciation can be driven by evolution, which is a process that results in the accumulation of many small genetic changes called mutations in a population over a long period of time. There are a number of different mechanisms that may drive speciation. One of these is natural selection, which is a process that increases the frequency of advantageous gene variants, called alleles, in a population. Natural selection can result in organisms that are more likely to survive and reproduce and may eventually lead to speciation. A second process called genetic drift describes random fluctuations in allele frequencies in populations, which can eventually cause a population of organisms to be genetically distinct from its original population and result in the formation of a new species."---

Ah, more illiteracy. I said "speciation to a different phylum," not speciation in general. Speciation does happen and can be demonstrated. But speciation that leads to a change in classification at any higher taxonomic rank has not. But a main tenet of evolution is that all taxonomic classifications originated from a single source.

But keep citing your scripture, that's what the faithful do.

Cooperation is as much a factor of evolution as competition. Maybe it’s high time to get vaccinated, eh, Syne?

Who ever said otherwise? You know, aside from your fevered imagination, desperately trying to read things that, objectively, are not there. That's typically called delusion.

Vaccinated? Wow, what a complete non-sequitur. So you are just a butt-hurt Karen after all, shaking your finger at people who aren't doing as you believe they should. No wonder you're pissy and defensive about the term.
