Should evolution be taught in high school?

Feb 24, 2008 | Posted by: Cash | Full story: www.scientificblogging.com

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."

Where to begin. Ever hear when an evolutionary biologist called in to Hovind's show? Hundreds of lies by Hovind.

Talkorigins has no authority. It is not peer reviewed and is highly biased and single purposed. It is just a collection of evolutionist rants to try and counter the numerous creationist claims.
But "creation science journals" are objective and unbiased. Retard. That you think PNAS and NEJM are on par with the Bible-based reality-denying rags you read shows how detached from reality you are..

Found a single technological innovation, invention, or medical treatment to come from "creation science" yet? You've had plenty of time.

One hundred billion galaxies containing 100 billion stars each. Thirteen point four billion years. That would mean that about 20,000 new stars would have to form each second for 13.4 billion years. And yet, we have yet to see the first documented new star form. There is not even one unequivocal, clear-cut, indisputable case of a new star. No before and after picture and any portion of the entire universe. (Plus the fact that the laws of physics makes it impossible to happen anyway.) It is true, you are without excuse.

Again, all I'm hearing is that Talkorigins doesn't hold creationism in high regard. Nobody's actually said it's wrong, or pointed out any flaws in the arguments. It's like everybody's trying to get around refuting the actual argument by attempting to discredit the source, except very very badly.

Yes! Peer reviewed, internationally accepted bullshit cross checked with multiple line of bullshit evidence and decades of falsified experiments, designed by the 150 year old world wide conspiracy of scientists working in league with Satan to discredit Jesus. You will find these Satanists everywhere, in their white coats or with their little palaeontology pick-axes and ugly sandals, scouring the earth for bullshit, falsifying radiometric dating results, deliberately miscounting molecular clocks, misreporting on the cosmic background radiation, pretending that the continents are moving, hiding all the fossils of flowing plants from the deeper strata, pretending there is a geologic column, inventing intermediate forms and smuggling them into dig sites to be "discovered".
When I discovered the true depth and breadth of the bullshit conspiracy propounded by science, I swear it was beyond belief!
You WILL respond......is that clear C1? Blue Book, SETI any ideas......why no contact, just sightings? Let me enlighten you.........The controllers are in control........Humans are ease to control because their senses and subconscious are limited....yes C1, you are included..........later.Compre hention is the most limited human function!

Geez, I'm really sorry, Urb. We'll get that time-lapse camera on Hubble as soon as possible. Come back in a few million years and we can all watch it.

You really have no concept of cosmological time scales whatsoever, do you?

Putz.

Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.

It already has one you moron. What part of the time scale don't I understand? Will for once say something at least remotely comprehensible? Are you capable of expressing a complete thought?

Mike, do you think you see the entire cosmos as a snapshot in time or are you looking back in time the further you look? Just curious.

Actually we have seen stars both go on and go off.

Maybe you mean in our own galaxy as that would still be true. The same with supernova, at least for the last 400 years.

We also have many pictures of stars being formed.

Nope not a one. There is not a single documented, undisputed case of a new star forming - anywhere in the universe. That is a fact. You have pictures of rotating gas pulling apart and that's it.

I'll state the problem again. You have 100 billion galaxies times 100 billion stars to have formed with the assumed age of the universe, an average of 20,000 new stars every second of the entire 13.8 billion years. But not even one can be found!

Outer Limits or Twilight Zone? Either way, it does describe Darwinism quite well.

Funny, then, that you've failed to identify a single one of its "lies".

Why is that?
