"Does anyone know a mechanism that prevents speciation?"---Raiko, comment #11

Konraduis beat me to this, but yeah if the two groups were reintegrated then speciation most likely would not occur. What would be interesting though, is would cecal valves remain in a portion of the population (assuming the two groups were reintegrated in their original habitat)?

Of course several of the posters here are correct, IDers will just scoff and say "microevolution". Regardless, I could easily use this information and a dry-erase board to make anyone capable of rational thought understand why the "gaps in the fossil record argument" doesn't hold water.
