19. Then what did you mean in your first post?
You said: Maybe this is just basic selection.

And what you clearly meant by that would be expressed by adding "as opposed to actual evolution" on the end. Because the article did not differentiate - you did. You seemed to indicate you thought a population had to become a whole new species before evolution could be declared to have happened.
