    It’s observable, repeatable, biological, scientific fact: that no matter how many generations go by, ALL populations of: fish remain fish, reptiles remain reptiles, birds remain birds, viruses remain viruses, amphibians remain amphibians, and so on. There exists factual barriers that are not crossed. In spite of this, evolutionists:
