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.

Scientific American Podcast for WEIT

One of the speakers aboard the Darwin Caribbean cruise (aka junket) that I just took was Steve Mirsky, a writer for Scientific American. Mirsky gave several lectures, including a report on the recent AAAS meetings in Chicago and a talk about how Scientific American handles articles.   Mirsky is a nice guy, and asked to interview me for his Sci Am blog, which we did while sitting on the bed in my cabin.  You can find the interview heremirsky; I haven’t listened to it so apologies in advance if I said anything stupid!
