Should evolution be taught in high school?

Feb 24, 2008 Full story: www.scientificblogging.com 176,180

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." Full Story

The Evo morons never have a thought all their own.
Light does not travel here from distant galaxies. It is simply that we can see that light through our telescopes.
The moons retroflectors prove how quickly light disperses in just 239,000 miles and back. There are so many billions of planets, so much space dust, so much mass ejections of plasma from suns, so much in cosmic rays, gas clouds and the interference is just endless.
Science has a way to test light theory, but obviously, it doesn't, for a reason.
There is a defining factor in proving light from distant universes does not reach here. Can any of you figure out what it is?
If light cannot escape a black hole, what force stops the light?
Where do you come up with this shite? It's hilarious!

For this to happen, the light must travel to the telescope. You cannot see light until it bounces off something.

You say,---You cannot see light until it bounces off something.

Why don't you show us the research you did on this subject. Lol

Thanks, I think I'll keep this one.

I don't believe in natural selection.

"Perhaps thatís the difference between ID proponents and more sensible people. For most of us, our inability to refute a simple argument that we know is rejected by nearly all scientists is evidence that we need to learn more about science. For ID proponents itís evidence that scientists just canít understand really simple arguments."

As a youngster, I had heard there were people that subscribed to theories like yours ... the eyes have to emit an energy that is returned to the eye to enable sight .... but I thought they were talking about "in antiquity". I had no idea moronic ideas like this were still thriving in some inaccessible inbred society such as yours no doubt is.

Evidence is great
Funny, I prove NASA and Goddard must be stupid, according to their own web site.

Original work

Stupidity of NASA +Goddard

On the website,----http://eclipse.gsf c.nasa.gov/SEhelp/ApolloLaser . html
It claims,--------- scientists have been able to determine the round-trip travel time that gives the distance between the two bodies at any time to an accuracy of about 3 centimeters.
I say, WOW, what a marvel.
On to the next part.
Science claims,---"Lunar ranging involves sending a laser beam through an optical telescope," Dickey said. "The beam enters the telescope where the eye piece would be, and the transmitted beam is expanded to become the diameter of the main mirror, then bounced off the surface toward the reflector on the Moon."
The reflectors are too small to be seen from Earth, so even when the beam is precisely aligned in the telescope, actually hitting a lunar retroreflector array is technically challenging. At the Moon's surface the beam is roughly four miles wide. Scientists liken the task of aiming the beam to using a rifle to hit a moving dime two miles away.
I say,--------so now, with a laser light 4 miles wide and an exact location, probably sending out a beacon or should be, they complain like hell. So much for close, perhaps 500 pound bomb close.
Now here is a crucial piece to my complaint.--------
Once the laser beam hits a reflector, scientists at the ranging observatories use extremely sensitive filtering and amplification equipment to detect the return signal, which is far too weak to be seen with the human eye. Even under good atmospheric viewing conditions, only one photon is received every few seconds.
I say,------read that last sentence very carefully. One photon every few seconds.
Science doesn't say one or two seconds or a couple of seconds. Instead, science claims a FEW seconds, meaning, it took 3 or more seconds for the photon to go from the moon to the earth. That means, that the beam should have taken, 1.3 seconds and not a full 3 seconds or more as NASA and the Goddard space center claim.

According to NASA, this test showed that the speed of light is a lie.

Suck on that Evo morons.
