    As well as not evolving fast enough, there are no new species
being made. the time we believe we see that is in the fossil
records after each extinction. Looking at the fossil records
in the lime stone cliffs, the lower layers are the simpler life
forms. The next layer has some but not all of the old life forms.
Then it has some improved models and some new species that did not
exist before.

Look budy, we can "create" new species today in the lab very easily.
By new species I mean a new animal that cannot breed and have ofspring
with its ancestors. We can do this with bacteria today, eventually it
will be possible with invertabrates and vertabrates.
