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."

Huh?

Maybe you should read it again. It is in English. You know English, right?

1) You're using the term "Evolutionist" -- which is a BIOLOGICAL reference to describe cosmological events.
2) I'm suremost everybody has 'opinions' on the matter of "The Big Question(s). But those are OPINIONS only, not fodder for scientific scrutiny or discussion worth the weight that you're attempting to impose upon it. Perhaps you should go on over to the Philosophy threads for a better response.
3) "I/We" don't know **IS** a viable, and honest response whether you like it or not.

Actually that is a perfectly reasonable statement.
You have belief / faith and as it is outside the realms of what science can address it is no less important in its own right.
However what science can provide is the most verifiable explaination of how life diversified, whether the 'starting point' was divinely inspired or not is a seperate issue, and one that science can't answer and more importantly (what ever creationists say w.r.t. Conflating evolution with atheism) doesn't try to.
There - you have an opinion.

"The scientific aspects of creation are important, but are secondary in importance to the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Sovereign, Creator, Redeemer and Judge."

That's not how science works.

Our winters will steadily increase and the summers decrease. This winter was stronger than the last 10 winters.

Yes, climatologists are working to figure our what's wrong with the chaos we're seeing in the weather patterns now. What's your point?

You are correct, but that's what happens when you don't listen to scientists. The climate is past the tipping point, and we have two different temperature changes, colder in the lower atmosphere, and hotter in the higher atmosphere, when both should be warming based on the carbon content of the atmosphere. However because of the unaccounted discrepancy the climatologists want to figure out all the details before making any recommendations.

The "global warming" crap Gore started is based on ignoring the science and done merely to manipulate the market, pretty much par for the course. All politicians and businesses do that all the time.

So was hurricane Katrina and Sandy and the drought in the Midwest that has cost a third or more of the annual corn crop.

One must first understand that scientists do as they are told, depending and that the media says what gets said and how widespread and strong.

So what are the names of the scientists that sounded the alarm, when and what media pressed it?

All I heard was global warming from the scientists and cap and trade from congress, Wall Street and the media--of course backed by investors.

The climate flips from hotter to colder and back again, with regularity. Shit happens.

When the climate flips, the atmosphere, upper and lower, also flip. That's called change. Science didn't understand the weather as well as now, back at the last flip, which was about 20 years ago.
