Davymid: From your own link, "It is possible for wolves and coyotes to interbreed and produce fertile offspring, but wolves usually kill coyotes, a fact which displaces questions of their status as two separate species." Which means Coyotes and Wolves might not be separate species and are possibly misclassified.
You really need to read you own links before you add them to your comments. Hold on, just caught that one. Meaning, Crakrjak, that even though they can interbreed, as one species predates on the other, "displaces questions of their status as two separate species" means that it "removes questions as to their being two different species". Displaces = removes, right?
They are clearly different species, as one species usually doesn't predate on it`s own species but on others.
Jeez man, you know to twist facts and statements like a pro. You shoulda been in politics.

When I argue science, it's science vs. science. When I argue theology, it`s theology vs. theology Interesting you put it that way, as Intelligent Design (i.e. Creationism) *IS* theology and is *NOT* science. It is untestable, unverifiable, experiments cannot be performed to test its validity, and it makes no predictions whatsoever, four of the cornerstones of science. Evolution on the other hand, is the very cornerstone of modern biology.
If I seem to "immediately defend the status quo, in knee-jerk fashion", I do so in the same way that I would attack a so-called chemist who spoke of the four elements of air, earth, fire and water in favour of the periodic table, or a medical practioniner who spoke of the four homours in favours of modern anatomy. Evolution is a fact, if you want to deny it to yourself and others, then that`s up to you. Doesn`t make it any less true.

we are the only proven creature to have imagination and learning from others experience by reading something or listening to someone else story, thats why we imagined god all through history of time, and will continue to do so, from the egyptians to the scientologists, imagination will always drive the unexplained, while in reality earth will go on with or without our species......that is all

iceblack: Viruses can't `evolve`, first off viruses don`t even have complete DNA, they need other cells DNA and mechanisms to replicate. Viruses may adapt, but they don`t speciate, Please learn some biology before you continue to try to `educate` someone smarter than you.
Davy: I do not `see punctuated equilibrium as evidence of God`s Creation...`, As I`ve said before science does not limit God, who`s omnipotent. When I argue science, it`s science vs. science. When I argue theology, it`s theology vs. theology. Problem is you see any challenge to Darwin`s theory, any mention of possible intelligent design and you immediately defend the status quo, in knee-jerk fashion, as a creationist plot to somehow kill science. Scientific research should be open, free and transparent enough that it allows challenges to all it`s theories, but unfortunately science only seems to advance one coffin at a time.

iceblack, save your breath. You're trying to educate the fundamentally (pun intended) uneducatable. CJ sees punctuated equilibrium as evidence of God`s Creation, Intelligent Design, Irreducible Complexity, whatever. When in fact, it`s just hard evidence of evolution. Let him be.
