Concerning you first example. The italian Sparrow, it derives from a hybridization of two other spieces.
To be a good point should it derive form internal mutation and not hybridization?
I'm shure that if I post it someone will come up with: well dogs have been crosed alot of times and obviuosly their jeans are mixed?
This might sound like a realy stupid question to you but please bear in mind that last time I looked at genetics was at school 8 years ago.
Why should hybrids be excluded? They are merely a way of combining genes, and gene variants. When this results in a self reproducing population with restricted out-breeding, it is 'macroevolution."
If creationshits start redefining "species," "evolution," and what ever else shows them to be fools, just bust them on their inconsistency.
But, there were dozens of other examples, use them if you prefer.
