Eh, I think even referencing extrapoluation opens the window for a slippery slope, nor is it necessary. There is plenty of direct evidence of "macro"evolution (evolution at and above the species level).

We tend to overlook that all aspects of articial selection, are proofs or natural selection.. Remember it is us that give the name of what we do artificial, this causes us to forget that we really are apart of nature. Aka, we are Natural, That makes us part of the enviroment of other species. This is a natural explanation of its own.
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL
