How do we know that speciation is true?

Over at his website at Scientific American, Steve Mirsky takes on the creationists’ claim that speciation doesn’t happen because we’ve never seen it happen.  It’s a clever and funny column, and makes a good point. I won’t spoil the fun except to say that Mirsky manages to mention both Mike Tyson and Chihuahuas in the same piece — surely a first.
