NG trots out the hoary old peppered moth to do its tricks again. After more than 100 years, you would think they could come up with something better. Yes, moths may adjust the shade of their wings and finches may change the shape of their beaks. (Clever designs both.) But adaptation does not equal evolution. Moths will remain moths and finches will remain finches forevermore. sagebrush gardener
