Yet we know there is considerable variability between tribes and nationalities. Does this variability take millions of years? Does it lead to the origin of new human species? Recent evidence shows that variations can be rapid, both genetic and acquired, without reducing interfertility.

Now, some evolutionists are claiming that the “missing links” on the way to modern humans were all interfertile with us.
