Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 180376 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."

Yes, we know that you are still a lying, dishonest creatard.
Urb, the first step in learning is admitting your mistakes.
For example, modern day archaeologists sometimes call modern day archaeologists sometimes call Ushu "paleo-Tyre". That is just their way of noting that there was a city before Tyre of importance in the area. It was where the settlement and building of Tyre was began from. There is no record that the city was ever called any form of the word "Tyre". It was Usu or Ushu depending upon the language it was written in.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ushu
Of course we don't even need the fact that the land based city was never called Tyre. Read the God Damned Bible. It will tell you in several different places that the city Tyre is the island Tyre. And not just in the prophecy by Zeke.
Even the dishonest sites that Squish looks for will not claim that the land based city was called Tyre. They might try to call it "Paleo-Tyre" but if pressed they admit that it was either Usu or Ushu.
So the city of prophecy was never swept clean. It was rebuilt from its damages for Alex the G's attack. It did come into trading prominence again as time went on. All the prophesies of significance against Tyre failed.
You are misinterpreting the prophesy on purpose.

What makes you think it is a code? The orderly nature? Then crystals are "codes"?? I've seen crystals form .... I was the only one in the room at the time. I can assure you I did nothing to "code" them.

Mocking creationists isn't bigotry, especially when they pretend that their beliefs are science. Yet, you'd probably flip out of somebody called you a bigot for calling gay people "unnatural" because ancient writings, even though it's been disproven. How does "everything was created in its present form and never changed" make more sense? Some life-forms are even the way they are because of us (i.e. dog breeds and the banana).

You make it perfectly clear that you feel morally superior to non-believers. Im sure you treat moderate Christians the same way.

That's right. AIG does absolutely ZERO scientific research that ends up published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Simply making the assertion doesn't make it so. You need evidence. Remember that stuff? It's what demonstrates that a claim is true. You don't have any. Therefore, your claim is summarily dismissed, as it should be.

Here's LowellGuy on the bus
He notices Rosa Parks sitting in the back

He scurries up to her

"Get off"

"Get off"...he screeches

She says, "Why?"

He thinks about it for a moment....

He shrugs his shoulders....goes, "Ah well"

......And then he ends up sitting in her lap.....

Really LowellGuy.......! You are an embarrassment

But then she did look so motherly

..........even if she was black

That's the Peachfuzz Effect

----------

MikeF notices Rosa Parks on the same said bus

He rushes off the bus

Races across the street to the other side

And when feeling safe and from at a great distance....

He yells, "You have to get off that bus...."

----------
Here comes SubDud

He spots Rosa Parks

He lumbers across to her as fast as he can

"You can't be here", says SZ

Rosa asks, "Why not"

SZ, "Well, firstly, you're a woman......."

----------

Here's Dogem

"You have to go," he tells her

"Why, pray tell, says she

"Why pray tell" says Dogem

And they stare at each other for a while

Then, says Dogem, age 52 and getting older every day, not any wiser, "You blinked first, therefore you lose"

Then he tries to palm off some Geodon to her, which she obviously refuses

Dogem you can't write prescriptions

Stop trying to dish out Geodon!

This is clear cut bigotry

Another interesting fact about Tyre. The city was named for the rocky island it was built upon. In fact Tyre comes from the Greek Tyrus which comes from the Phoenecian Sur. Sur means "rock" in Phoenecian.
I have not found the etymology of the land based city Usu or Ushu yet. It becomes clearer and clearer that defenders of the Tyre prophesy are grasping at straws, and rather ineffectively at that.

The only thing Squishy around here is your head
==========

The Lebanese city of Tyre is still called Sur today

SZ is having revelations.....

Slow and lumbering, but he'll get there eventually

Both Tyre and Sidon had island and mainland components, SZ

AND the scriptures CLEARLY state

1) Many nations

2) Mainland settlements would be destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar

Ezekiel 26: 7-11

New International Version (NIV)
A Prophecy Against Tyre

7 For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: From the north I am going to bring against Tyre Nebuchadnezzar[b] king of Babylon, king of kings, with horses and chariots, with horsemen and a great army.

8 He will ravage your settlements on the mainland with the sword; he will set up siege works against you, build a ramp up to your walls and raise his shields against you.

9 He will direct the blows of his battering rams against your walls and demolish your towers with his weapons.

10 His horses will be so many that they will cover you with dust. Your walls will tremble at the noise of the warhorses, wagons and chariots when he enters your gates as men enter a city whose walls have been broken through.

11 The hooves of his horses will trample all your streets; he will kill your people with the sword, and your strong pillars will fall to the ground.

==========
Any issues with the above?

Did anything mentioned there NOT come to pass?

==========

Read it again----->

8 He will ravage your settlements on the mainland with the sword......etc

==========

Its as clear as the lovely day it is here this morning

BTW

There is nothing Squishy about me

But the precise arrangement of molecules produces intricate and regular crystal patterns.

What are nucleotides "translated" by? This is essential for code, it must be translated by something ... what are nucleotides translated by? What processor do they run on?

In the case of the Rosetta stone the symbols were processed by humans and mapped to another set of symbols affording translation from one language to another. What are these nucleotides being translated to? and by what?

That only synthesizes DNA, makes copies of it. This does nothing to "translate" DNA into anything.
