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."

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
Lol,---sham wow--- perfect metaphor for evolution.

It would be funny, if they weren't teaching children in earnest, even the teachers are willing morons.

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.

Is Earth's gravitational pull determined by its mass or by its rotational speed? This is important.

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.

Evolutions entire premise is built on everything from one entity in the beginning, but out of at least a billion fossils, science cannot point to even one fossil lineage, that shows small progressive changes.

Evolution operates on hype and dumbing down the scientists, the general public and even the children, through a fully corrupt gov and media.

There is a ton of good science to be discussed, in a never ending number of disciplines. Limiting oneself to such a few, over and over might show children what idiocy rules mankind.

Sorry, bozo. I should have realized you'd only look at the pictures.

"Detailed fossil information on the rate and distribution of new equid species has also revealed that the progression between species was not as smooth and consistent as was once believed. Although some transitions, such as that of Dinohippus to Equus, were indeed gradual progressions, a number of others, such as that of Epihippus to Mesohippus, were relatively abrupt in geologic time, taking place over only a few million years. Both anagenesis (gradual change in an entire population's gene frequency) and cladogenesis (a population "splitting" into two distinct evolutionary branches) occurred, and many species coexisted with "ancestor" species at various times. The change in equids' traits was also not always a "straight line" from Eohippus to Equus: some traits reversed themselves at various points in the evolution of new equid species, such as size and the presence of facial fossae, and only in retrospect can certain evolutionary trends be recognized."
