Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 178661 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."

Where has animalutionism been tested and verified?
No where!! It is is a creoturd fantasy concept. It has nothing to do with anything let alone evolution. So what?

99% of all species that have ever existed are now extinct, even the ancestor species for all life that exist today. Is that enough overwhelming and overreaching for you?

Guess what, that is what the theory of evolution says too.

Except their language is bit more specific. It could be simplified to the statement that species do not cross clades.

Once a species is in a clade all of its offspring will be in the same clade.

Poor Rusty will not understand this. But then he has been in trouble ever since they introduced multiplication into math class.

Yes, in many cases it can do so. It does not matter what the DNA "says" it follows the recipe in the DNA.
And what smokescreen? A reference so that you can start to learn is a smokescreen?
If DNA is not an inflexible code, explain the existence of identical twins.

What? Identical twins have identical DNA. That does not mean that DNA is "inflexible code". You have not even defined "inflexible code". Once again it is better to think of it as a recipe. If you use the same recipe twice you will cook the same meal twice.

Change the recipe, but not the reader of the recipe and you will still have a different meal.

Wrong again. You have demonstrated many times that you don't know what evidence is.

Would you like to learn?

I am not a creationist. Why would I have "CREATION RACIST BIGOTRY". Since you are a creationist it seems you are much more likely to have that sickness.

I have shown countless times why we know and even creationists know, that there is no bigotry by evolutionists. Yes, there is quite a bit of bigotry by creationists, but once more that is not my problem.

I don't think that Mugwump has any problems with me. I do believe that our two active tards do.
