One salmon species becoming two.
Wait for the wails "but they're still salmon!"
Of course they bloody are! This is only 60 generations.
Now tell me. What is the barrier that stops much larger changes occuring over 60,000 generations?

Please supply the reference, so that we can examine the context.
Not that we don't trust creationist quote mining or anything....

It's rather a shame for Dr McCreadie that new metabolic pathways have been observed to evolve.

The explanation of how non-life (a molten rock) creates life by itself is the logical imperative of evolution.
So, if God supernaturally created the first life and then it evolved naturally, that wouldn't be evolution?
If it would be, then abiogenesis is not a logical imperative of evolution.

Re: Some comments
I'll just address one, because I'm not an expert. However, this glaring misunderstanding got to me.
1 and 2 can get passed on to progeny
Only if it's on the sex chromosome right?
No. We get all our chromosomes from our parents. A mutation on any gene will be inherited. Perhaps you mean that the mutation has to occur in the production of gametes? In sexually reproducing organisms, this is of course correct. But the mutation can be on any chromosome and will be inherited.
