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."

First off, Jimmy, I want to thank you for taking time out from your drinking and masturbating. It is deeply appreciated.

Secondly, since you said earlier that Wiki was for morons, this should suit you perfectly:

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.
Even of its earned, you morons just run away.

Show the world one entity in the fossil record, that displays the small changes all through its lineage,, proving evolution, just ONE.

You are morons, teaching children to become willing morons.

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.

Lies are all Evo science has and you're an idiot for believing in that religion. You have no proof, but you have faith, even when you have no proof.
You refuse to provide evidence that your "hypothesis" is correct, yet you demand that we provide evidence that our theory is correct (all of which you dismiss as part of an elaborate century-long conspiracy)? What is hypocrisy?

defender, TalkOrigins is not a lefty site. Why would you make such a statement?

Would a site that advocated 2 + 2 = 4 be considered a "lefty site"?

You continually lie about the evidence for evolution. You can try to deny it, but the evidence for evolution is better and more thorough than that of any murder trial.

Lie. More people accept evolution than reject it.

More lies. When have I demanded proof of god?

By no one, I assume you mean the uneducated, hick fundies.

As I said before, you can dispute the evidence but to say there is none is a flat out lie. Is lying all you have to offer? Please tell me you can offer more to the debate besides bullshit.

Is that really all you have to bitch about? Some thing that SCIENTISTS (not creationist, who have never contributed shit to the debate) proved false?

Now you hide behind my hypothesis, so you and science don't have to show that you can't even show one entity in the fossil lineage, that shows small changes even over millions of years and billions of fossils.

I can easily provide proof for my theories, pick one and I'll outline MY proof.
