Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 180369 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."

<quoted text>You are correct, evolution does not have evidence, actually, nothing does.

However, all evidence points to and suggests that evolution is the cause of speciation. You need to start thinking forward and stop putting the cart before the horse.
This post says it all... Nothing has evidence but it does... Slow down darling it's ok...

You're the one who said it was "simple chemistry"... I'm merely suggesting that you back up your baseless claim.
"Simple" and "easy" are not the same thing.

And you haven't read ANYTHING that's been published. At least, anything scientific. Nothing on creation.com is scientific. Fact.

Ok then!!! If not random chance then what??... Read that again slow so you understand...
See? Now you're adamantly stamping your feet to demonstrate to the world your scientific ignorance.

If someone throws a box of multi-colored toothpicks on the floor, and they scatter, their ultimate arrangement is relatively random (taking the laws of physics into account). However, if you are told to retrieve all the blue toothpicks, and you do so, is that random?

You would think something like that would make headlines if it were out there.

Just hollow insults... Sometimes in life google isn't going to have the answers for you honey...

I was not asked a question by the original poster. I was just pointing out he was lying/ignorant again. HTS lies or exposes his ignorance in nearly every post but likes to pretend he knows anything.

Tis to laugh.

So point us to some scientific evidence for god.

You said you had some a week or so ago, but when i challenged you on it you .... and I know this will be a shock to everyone .... dodged the question

Now going out on a limb here but suspect you were making shit up yet again- unless you can produce some published science that supports gods existence of course?

It's not obvious to those who understand biology.
An egg is equally complex as a chicken.
They both contain chicken DNA.
Eggs existed long before chickens. Dinosaurs had eggs. Duh.

If Jesus is God, then God is dead. The God of Israel is the living God and it has always been her intent to live on the earth. God created Israel for her glory and she will stand upon the earth in the latter days. Christians will call this person "Antichrist" and cause her to be killed, but she will come back on the Mount of Olives. When we witness God, we'll know there is a God. "In that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one."

If life is a natural function of our universe (and it appears to be) then there is no intelligence required at the step where matter becomes life.
Lol... Classic... Here comes your Wiccan god "natural" into play...

Umm.. Can you produce any published science that proves there is no God?
And after every possible chemical combination tested under every possible condition in the most highly advanced labs around the world ten thousand times over do you have an answer for how life came to be on this planet?... No...

Nope, but then I can't prove the non existence of a small teapot orbiting the sun either -your point is?

Apart from the fact that abiogenisis is not evolution (god could have done it - still wouldn't effect the veracity of evolution).......

Can you back up your claim that every possible combination has been attempted 1000 times over - of course you can't - you made it up
