Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 180279 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."

Have you produced Ezekiel 26 :3 here as yet as I have asked?
I don't have to "produce" it. I told you what it means.

So did Dogen.

Poor rusty, still a loser.

Tard, you cannot give instructions or orders.

You have a lot of homework to do before you can do that.

As I said, I have already told you what it says. You want to quote it out of context. Quoting out of context is a form of lying.

I do believe you are attempting sacrilege. You should know that even attempting sacrilege is the same as performing it. Tsk tsk, rusty. Unless you repent, you will be spending your time in hell.

Nope, I am not writing down anything to a losing creatard.

I will interpret the Bible for you. I don't take verses out of context the way that you do. My interpretations can be trusted.

By the way rusty, don't you ever get tired of being the dumbest kid on the block?

There is no relation to DNA
DNA in itself is a transportable information containing system when translated can make a living thing
All the atoms in the world combined by random processes will not give you coded information that when translated can provide living creatures
DNA is naturally precisely replicated with error correction an integral part of the porcess
Lucky for us that neither evolution or even abiogensis are random actions.

Whew, I almost thought you had a legitimate argument against these ideas for half of a second.

Oh the pressure.

Okay rusty you win.

Ezekiel 26 3 says that Nebby will have allies. Nothing more, nothing less.

It does not say that Alex will be along in 300 years to finish the job that Nebby failed at.

So have you found a major city in the area that was not defeated over a 300 year period, or is your attempt of stretching the prophesy a total failure?

rusty, do you have an answer to all of the verses that show Tyre is the island city and not the land based city as you seemed to think?

Oh what am I doing. Implying that rusty can actually think.

Sorry rusty. Didn't want to make you feel uncomfortable.

In High School, it was one of your simple, basic experiments, or so you claimed.

Poor Urb, another witless Christian who cannot recognize the obviously false parts of the Bible.

So Urb, since the Bible is obviously not perfect why do you believe it?

Is it because your mommy told you to?

There is an extensive record of His life. In the Bible and other written works, in art, in music, in churches, in OUR CALENDAR...EVERYWHERE! His life and death was also prophesied in great detail. There is no excuse.

Of course it bloody should!!!

Maybe it'll bring you americans into the modern era.

All our modern medicine and knowledge is based on the same science so if you're not teaching this science in school why would your school leavers trust their doctor?

Praying wont help when they break a leg.

If you want the rest of the world to stop laughing at you because less than half of you even believe evolution I'd start teaching your kids now.

For a so called modern western nation you should be ashamed.

No, many of the so called fulfillments of prophesy were clearly written into the Jesus story by the writers. The fact that he is in our calenders is definitely not proof of his existence. If that were the case you would have to believe in Thor and Odin too.

What the frig does Pompeii (correct spelling) have to do with Tyre?
You will say anything to hide from reality.
Thanks for the correction---> not really
It was not required

Pompeii----> ancient city

Pompei---> modern city near Naples

So

You're wrong.....again

Frightened?

Why not produce what I have asked if you have an air tight case?

Write it down for me

What does Ezekiel 26:3 say

I am not asking much

A simple request

Write it here and do it now

No one is frightened of you. I will not let you quote out of context.

And I already wrote what it says. Go back and read again if you have to. It does not say what you think it says because, as I said, you want to quote it out of context.

Funnily
Whenever I'm on this forum I cease being the dumbest kid on the block

Dunno how that works.....

I guess it's all relative

Now

Ready to roll?

What does Ezekiel 26:3 say?

Why are you afraid?

I won't trap you....

Correct

1) Evolution has never happened
Only natural selection that reduces variability

2) You're right again

Abiogenesis which is better described as biogenesis

But I like to call it creation ex nihilo

Well actually I do

We can talk about this after our Bible study is completed
