The ability to adapt to local conditions in the environment is built into the genes of each animal or plant. This is why you will see small changes over time. But these adaptations take place ONLY WITHIN the basic design of each. This is why finches' beaks will change, but then they can revert. The birds are still finches. The ability to adapt doesn't include the kind of changes that will enable a frog to become a prince, given enough time. This is also why subdividing into species is excessive, because many of these organisms will interbreed and produce viable offspring. It is no better than claiming each breed of dog is a separate species. While a Chihuahua female won't have the offspring of a Great Dane father, the reverse could be true. It is relative size that limits, not viability. There is no fatal error in his argument.
