Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 179706 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."

How about this one for starters; YOU desperately WANT there to be a designer capable of designing all life on Earth. Yet despite this desperate desire, you can not produce one single scrap of verifiable evidence that will pass a non-advocate review, that such a being exists.

That is a fact, it is unequivocal, unchallengeable and undeniable. I know this is true because YOU have not been able to do so.

Go ahead, prove this fact wrong..... I'll wait.

Okay, so now you're saying that belief defines race. That makes you racist not me.

You have been presented the evidence, you discarded it because it didn't fit your presumptions. We're still waiting for any evidence that supports your creation myth.

Don't let your believe in God be stymied by my failures

How would you prove to me that oxygen existed?

You'd need a lab

God is not necessarily proven in a lab

Evidence for His existence is undeniable from His creation

You are without excuse

I have yet to be provided with ANY evidence of single celled organisms becoming multicellular, thence proceeding from invertebrates to vertebrates and WESTWARD HO! to mammals including man

If such evidence exists, would you kindly make it available to me forthwith?

No delays...

Forthwith!

So ... you expect science to result in every single detail, every tiny bit of evidence, yet you present a non-answer that has no evidence, no details, no explanations in place of it.

There's a word for that ... it escapes me at this moment ....

Not entirely sure why you are willing to share the copyright with me but as an aside ... You do realise that every time you use the phrase
CREATION RACIST BIGOTRY
it makes you sound about 12
I mean if you don't understand the term 'racist' why should we believe you understand evolution?
I recently saw Lincoln
That was a great movie I thought

There were many places in the film when I thought...

...CREATION RACIST BIGOTRY...

would be quite appropriate to call out...

But naturally without the ...CREATION..bit

I'm not THAT stupid

I strike a match, it burns that proves oxygen exists.

What evidence do you have that a "Designer" exists? A 2000 year old collection of goat herder "magic man" stories? That's it?? Really?

Haven't seen it yet but fan of DDL - however you skirted around my point - why do you use the phrase 'racist' for someone in the context you do - and does this suggest

A misunderstanding of the term (unlikely)
The mentality of a 12 year old
