Speciation is the coming into existence of a new species.
Speciation and creationism
The theory of evolution supplies an explanation for speciation, but whether creationists accept speciation varies. Some of the creationists who reject macroevolution also reject speciation, others have asserted that a limited speciation can occur. Some creationists, especially YECs, believe in mega-speciation, that all the species of birds came from a few on Noah's Ark. They point to the fact that the creation of many types happened with dogs in a short period so could happen with snakes and everything else on the Ark. Ultimately the issue becomes a ridiculous argument over the word species, a term which neither mainstream scientists nor creationists are able to completely agree on.
