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."

There is no literature on what I proposed, that's why it's new science by Jim Ryan. Sheesh your am idiot.
There are test subjects world wide.
I've already lain out most of the criteria, but you seem not to have a clue.
I didn't say pathogens only come in through the feet, but your ignorant teaching is made all too easy to see. No where did I suggest such you moron.
Test areas would be according to what I already laid out.
Kids going barefoot likely have stronger iune systems.
You never had a thought all your own, maybe you should go barefoot. Lol

It is not science till it has empirical support.

It is just a notion and a rather sucky one at that.- SLC

My bitch what does this question have to do with the post that you quoted?

For those who haven't followed I was telling Jimbo that the vacuum of interstellar space is much purer than man made vacuums and challenged him to find a man made vacuum "purer" than a natural one.

My bitch as usual is clueless.

Jim, here is a challenge for you. Since you seem to believe that a man made vacuum has no matter in it, I would like you to find me some sort of evidence that that has been accomplished.
By your words, you're too stupid to understand what science proves.

Thank your teachers and the dumbed down school systems.

Say please and I'll show you the proof. That's all ya gotta do to get information, that by your words, you don't understand.

Yet another irrelevant distraction from Dogen.
It's irrelevant whether or not they agreed with my theology.
They agreed that science lead them to a belief in a supreme intelligence.

They would not agree that what you believe in was a supreme intelligence, nor would you care for theirs.

Further, science did not lead two of them to that belief, they had that their beliefs since childhood.

They just found that science was not inconsistent with that belief. That is what you need to learn.

You do not need to reject real science in favor of pseudoscience. None of those scientists did that. Quite the contrary, they advanced real science.

Look at Gore and Obama...

Nobel prizes in science are based on scientific research.

Just because no pseudoscientist will ever win a Nobel prize is no reason to malign the real scientists who do.

Prove your thesis that evolution has limits and the world is your oyster cracker. Ack!

How bout that, polly?

I see that you're mindlessly swallowing dogma again.
Just because someone slaps a label on something doesn't make it so.
ERVs are not insertions from past viral infections.
If they were, they would all be non-functional.
It has been proven that ERVs aid in transcription of over 5% of the human genome.
Therefore, your intuitions are false. New functions are being published every week.
You desperately hope that your junk DNA paradigm can survive, but it is crashing, and Darwinism is being reduced to nothing in the process.
If you continue to cling onto the failed dogma of evolution, you are forced into believing that the proverbial monkey can indeed type Shakespeare.
DNA homology proves nothing, as I've aptly demonstrated despite your base ignorance.

I see you have broken the 500,000 mark of unsupported assertions.

Congrats. You cannot be stopped!

Are you daft? ERV's are the result of retroviral insertion. Look up the meaning of ERV!
Few ERVs have been shown to have functionality.
The older the ERV (the longer it has been in the genome) the MORE likely it is to have functionality (we call that evolution).
ERV's are the result of retroviral insertions in the past.

I don't think he can. I already found one source that says you are full of crap Jim.

Oops, make that two sources.

Meanwhile I am betting that Jimbo has nothing.

Any takers?

Below was your question

Science has an answer, if you know where to look,
