Alright, so here's an edited version of it; nothing about my personal reasons for asking the question. (I'm not really sure how to add in "teratology"). As per the general rules of these sites, if you think you can improve the question (and not change the overall meaning) feel free to edit.

comment Is Behe's experiment (evolving the bacterial flagellum) plausible in the lab?
Hmm... yes, if we replayed the tape of life, we would see a lot of generations, but (I would expect that) most of them did not contribute towards the evolution of the flagellum (nor its precursors). Through artificial selection, the number of generations required in the lab should be far less than in nature. [PS. I don't mean to sound unappreciative of your answer.]

comment How do members of cryptic species know who to mate with?
Thanks for that; I'm happy with that. That survey paper, in particular, is quite interesting.
