"As evolution is construed today, grouping can be a science, but ranking above the
level of species cannot."

Just so we are all on the same wavelength, please remind us, uh, Curtis, why is it that species are special (without recourse to "genus concepts", "family concepts", or species concepts).

Or,  did that whole species concept problem get solved? Which one won, I missed it?

Of course, there are no ranks below species ...
