Selective breeding is evolution, but it isn't Darwinian evolution, because the selection is artificial and isn't natural.

I guess that's why they can't duplicate Darwinism in the lab--cause that wouldn't be natch'rl.

Since evolution is generally considered in the context of speciation I don't think you can call selective breeding "evolution" unless you can cite a case where selective breeding has actually resulted in a new species that cannot interbreed with its ancestral stock.
