Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 179706 comments on the www.scientificblogging.com story from Feb 24, 2008, titled Should evolution be taught in high school?. In it, www.scientificblogging.com reports that:

Microbiologist Carl Woese is well known as an iconoclast. At 79 years of age, Woese is still shaking things up. Most recently, he stated in an interview with Wired that...

"My feeling is that evolution shouldn't be taught at the lower grades. You don't teach quantum mechanics in the grade schools. One has to be quite educated to work with these concepts; what they pass on as evolution in high schools is nothing but repetitious tripe that teachers don't understand."

Very funny moron, y'all prove who you are as a group and that you hate what you refuse to understand, even to a very mild mannered individual, that through all of your nasty childish, did not return it. He made a simple valid scientific observation. Anyone can see the truth at post 109287, and read for about 2 pages.

There is nothing nasty about calling someone out who pretends to understand science and yet does not. That is not nearly as nasty as being a poser and trying to confabulate ones own notions with science.

Translation: I got nothing and was just called out. I will therefore say something insulting. It is my only defense.

A person can read a thousand books and never understand. They can read a million books but never challenge. They are simply a cut and paste product of other people.

says the little man who never read a book and never understood much of anything. you just write your own little science fiction stories. I hope they keep you entertained as they have no other value.

What must a person do when they realize they are nothing more than a cut and paste clone of many other people?

Challenge everyone and everything.

All the great thinkers had a clue, knew what others thought and why, and discovered reasons (data) to upset the status quote.

Unlike yourself, a poor thinker who has no clue, does not understand what science actually says nor why and has no reason (data) to put forth any scientific notion.

If you weren't such a complete moron, you would see he had a valid, scientific observation.

Go back to playing with yourself, it's what you do best.

I notice Pyschos attempts to be civil to people lasted about a week, and he has now fallen back to his normal ways of calling everyone who disagree with him (I.e. everyone) a moron.
Is there ANYTHING he doesn't fail at.

Nope, and that includes marriage and parenting.

If YOU thought it was a valid scientific observation,..... well that pretty much speaks for itself.

Well, all they do is spew verbal abuse. So how would you expect him to react? They should realize by now that this never amounts to anything except more of the same.

Not that we have observed, no.

If you come off as snarky and mean-spirited, then that's probably what you're going to get.

You don't explain the theory of gravity with a coin and a feather, only morons think they can.
Remind me...was the hammer and feather drop test ever performed on the Moon?

You'd think someone as learned about gravity as you obviously are would know the answer to that question without having to be slapped in the face with video evidence.

You dont offer science anything, while you and other children pretend to know everything, when all you do is cut and paste,

YOU and THEY, don't know anything.

You're idiots, that's all you are.

You're an idiot, calling other people ned, because you morons have nothing else.

There may be a pause in name calling, because I have more new science to consider.

Anybody can cut and paste children.

Not one scientist in the world questioned why space junk in low orbit falls back to earth, while space junk in high orbit has remained there , as anything other than a passing thought.

The morons in science seem unable to compare the effects of gravity from a low orbit to a high orbit with space junk and then think, ya know, if it's that way for space junk, why can't those same principles apply to planets?

Let's say this comparison is wrong. So, can we prove this is wrong, if so, how?

Oh gosh no. One can show its wrong, whatever shall we do or more portably, should we think.

Duh which way did he go George?
