Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 180388 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."

Hogwash, the fact that there was never a substantial slave workforce
in Egypt, is based on real archeology . Not a chronology of supposed events, the areas where the people who actually built the pyramids lived has been excavated, and their burial places have been unearthed, exposing the exodus story as a fabrication.



In fact just about 50% of the bible is highly exaggerated and pure fiction.

Wow! That's quite the set of gymnastics you have to go through to make your Babble seem legible. Seems an omniscient God would have been able to do better than that, huh?
Speaking of which, why is your God always broke? I mean he's been around for so long, knows the past, present and future and still can't manage his finances well enough that he has to keep having his flunkies ask me for money? You'd think a Guy who knows everything could do better than that too, huh?
Does this rant deserve a response?

I don't think so

You obviously know nothing about the Scriptures and what I have pulled from a readily available source has been sufficient to shut you up

Now you're evo-whining....

If churches are asking for donations....try and give something

You may be on the receiving end of charity one day....who knows?

Now Squishy don't lie. You link the worst rubbish quality sites all of all time. You can't get much lower than creatard.com , a site that pretends to do science while openly declaring that they are anti-science.

From this I am now convinced that your dumbness has no bounds

So

You have no idea about the Scriptures

No idea about science

And now confirmed no idea about history either

AND

Despite not knowing NUTHIN'....

You still want to teach me stuff

I have told you before

I already know what 'evidence' is

Its the thing missing from evolutionism

Are you the varmit that spoke critically about my data source?

Well, I'll have you know, you knave, that her Royal Majesty The Queen of England appreciates my data source on a daily basis

After the Royal ablutions are completed, she says, "Bring me the data source".

And upon provision of the said data source, she diligently peruses the data source whilst imbibing her morning tea and muffin

So, you scoundrel of immense proportions!

What in tarnation will you say next?

What a fool he was.

Here's one for you; the Bible says that roughly 2000 BC God came down from 'heaven' in the 'plains of Shiner'(which is actually an area in Babylonia), and confounded the speech of humans. He supposedly did this because humans were becoming too smart and cooperating too much. This action the theists tell us is when men's speech separated into the thousands of languages we now have on earth.

Trouble is with this lie....is that archaeology has known for many decades that at the time of this Biblical transgression of truth humans were spread ALL over the earth....had been for thousands of years....and I'll bet you anything you want....they were speaking different languages.

The Chinese were making pottery at least 18,000 years ago. The American Indians were exploring All of the areas of the States, maybe 15,000 years ago. Homo-sapiens (us) were painting cave walls in France, Germany, and Spain as far back as 30,000+- years ago.

All the writing in the Bible seems to portray the Middle East as the only place on earth that has people or civilizations. It is the 'tunnel vision' of Arab goat herders and the occasional Rabbi or scholar.
