The article makes light of the problems, saying that point mutations can happen quickly. Yes, but in order for three distinct groups to form quickly, there have to be three males who acquire specific point mutations in their REPRODUCTIVE cells, and three females who acquire exactly the same mutations in THEIR reproductive cells. Then, each male has to have offspring with the female who happens to have the same mutation. Otherwise, the mutations would almost be certainly be recessive and unexpressed. I personally find this beyond my ability to accept.
