Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 178700 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."

The German zoologist Dr. Albert Fleischmann of the University of Erlangen wrote,
“I reject evolution because I deem it obsolete; because the knowledge, hard won since 1830, of anatomy, histology, cytology, and embryology, cannot be made to accord with its basic idea. The foundationless, fantastic edifice of the evolution doctrine would long ago have met with its long-deserved fate were it not that the love of fairy tales is so deep-rooted in the hearts of man.”1
*Footnote reads “1Acworth, Captain Bernard,‘Darwin and Natural Selection,’ Evolution Protest Pamphlet, London, 1960, p. 6.”]
Fleischmann made these comments a hundred years ago. Got anything not quite so stale?

If you want better, you'll have to earn it.

If the best you can offer is petty insults, that's all you'll get in return. If you want to discuss the topic of the forum, you should at least demonstrate a rudimentary understanding.

Go on about what? The religion known as Darwinism? Fueled by leftwing nut jobs seeking more funding...
Believe the facts not the BS impossible guess work of frustrated homosexuals mad because bible condemns anal sex.... It's about what one can prove not speculate... That's science.
Due to the lack of proof one is free to believe what they will... It's A buyers market...
I believe in design... Why? Life doesn't work without it... Life is far to complex to arise from random chance...
The evolutionist also believe in A god!! Natural Selection ... Whatever floats your boat...
There is a huge number of people who believe in the god of the bible and accept evolution.

You're boat is sinking.

Even of its earned, you morons just run away.

You are morons, teaching children to become willing morons.

There is also A huge number of people who buy the sham wow? Your point?...Once again science demands proof for validation and this is where the evolutionist comes up wanting time and time again...
You scuff at Christian believers demanding proof of God but yet when asked the same about your ridiculous theory all one gets is "Well just because we don't have the answers yet doesn't mean it isn't true"...
Truth is you have NO answers... Not one shred of evidence to back this foolishness besides A bunch of bones that no one can agree on... Or even worse are glued to human remains in the desperate hope of keeping the farce alive... Now what was that about sinking boats? Lol

The deceit we see here from the Evo morons is exactly what is destroying America, from the inside out.

The gov hides behind sequester, so it can borrow more money, kicking the proverbial debt down the road for one more year.

The debt is so massive, that without wiping out half of the government or taking away all the benefits, perks and lower wages, the debt must keep growing.

The gov doesn't want to do that, because those people would vote together, to put them out.
