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."

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.

Fine, bring it on - present your evidence for a god.

And note - I will hold it to the same standards you do of evolution I.e.

Dismiss it as being Christian mysoginistic bigotry

Dismiss it as being a Christian fairy tale.

Dismiss it as not being real science.

So go ahead

Yes, you are indeed, that stupid. Your thesis totally ignores the fact that the different evolutionary stages of the horse were found at different layers in the fossil strata indicating different time periods.... but silly me, you are a creoturd ... you wouldn't think that way would you?

Not entirely sure why Russell suggests I am even slightly on his side , he also suggest the racist epithet is down to me as well - even though I continually point out he sounds like a 12 year old when he uses it.

Too true sadly.

How often have I pointed out that their ideas are not backed up by scientific evidence and our are? How often have I offered to teach them what is evidence so that we could no longer claim that they deny evidence?

It seems that they want to remain purposefully ignorant of evidence.

Do they think that their god will ignore their lies when they claim that they did not know any better?

Why this strange fear of learning what is and what is not evidence?

A new term "creoturd" even lower on the scum scale than a creatard.

If we're going to be partners you'll have to do better than this

That is precisely HTS's point

Nowithstanding independent assortment of alleles during meiosis, DNA is staggeringly faithfully replicated

Error correction occurs to prevent ...well, errors...

Which is extraordinary for a system that supposedly came about via errors

If DNA is not fixed..

What hope has RNA?
