By genetic changes, do you mean a shift in dominant attributes in the gene
pool, or actual mutations? The difference is very meaningful.
As we can see by the examples of the moths, the finches, dogs, roses, and
other species which have been naturally, or intellegently selected, there is
a very great range of attributes already present in a given species.

And how did this range in attributes happen ?
