Which bit of 'that has already been observed' is failing to make it through the fog here? Indeed, not only has it been observed, there's an instance of a speciation event in the wild that has been replicated in the lab, where the same mutations occured in wild and lab-borne populations, and where these two populations were interfertile, yet neither were interfertile with the parent populations.

Here's a cracker from the mighty Cali presenting the paper.

Now then, since your specific request has been answered in excruciating detail, can we now take it that you accept common ancestry?

Fuckwitted apologetic hand-waving in 3... 2... 1...
