Fascinating science, but it will, undoubtedly, be ignored by the "creationism/ID" camp (it's not like we have ever seen an earthworm give birth to a Brachiosaurus or anything:/sarcasm)

Why can't the "creationists/Iders" do science like this in support of their position (as opposed to merely trying to pick insignificant little holes in the Theory of Evolution)? It might give them a little more respect as a valid scientific endeavor.

no, for them to attempt real science would demonstrate that they are not scientists

after all, there's no litmus for god
