If creationists accept microevolution, the whole creation-evolution debate comes down to whether the earth is thousands or billions of years old.If the earth is 6,000 years old, then there wouldn't be enough time for evolution to occur.However,if the earth is 5 billion years old, evolution must happen, because microevolution would have enough time to make new species.--Thedoctor80 (talk) 18:53, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

I think that to a creationist "microevolution" only allows changes within the species, not the creation of a new species. So they can evolve up to a point but not beyond where they can no longer successfully mate with the original. Redchuck.gif Генгисunbelieving 18:57, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Asexual species?[edit]

How does one define "species" when those organisms are reproduced through asexual means? [[User:K61824|]][[User_talk:K61824|]] 23:24, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
