Should evolution be taught in high school?

Feb 24, 2008 Full story: www.scientificblogging.com 175,466

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 following is the last line on the second page of the article. What true scientist would just quit on the verge of more knowledge, however unlikely?

"""Truth is, Schweitzer hasn't even bothered to look for DNA."""

Truth is she has sequenced as much as she could. She found collagen and some Amino acids. So she could not possibly sequence DNA when she does not even have complete proteins.

PERIOD.

Both sides have pressured Schweitzer so much, they have stopped any more science she could offer. Of course she surely got her funding, but since then, she and science have stopped the research.

Intimidation and innuendo serve the wicked, in the names of justice and science.

Yes, clearly there is.
Oh well I guess there must be, since the lying reality-denying mooks at ICR who had nothing at all to do with the research and haven't even been anywhere near it said so.(shrug) Goddarn evil atheist evilutionist conspiracy.

Which is why you post stuff you don't even understand and lie by saying it supports you, even though the article, and the opinions of the actual researchers who did the work, disagree with you.

In short, you fundies are simply dishonest lying douches because you got a chip on your shoulder about them mean old atheist Darwinists, all because you didn't get an edumacation.

Mary H. Schweitzer is a tenured professor at North Carolina State University. She is not likely to find herself in line at a soup kitchen over one piece of research.

Seems there is no need to. All that is refuted are your paranoid notions and misunderstanding of how science actually works.

And yet she has published a landslide of research since this, some of it pertaining and some of it not pertaining to her early research.

Looks like getting funding is not an issue for her.

She also hasn't done a C14 test on it. What is she afraid of?
