Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 179702 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."

If red shift were the answer, there should be no blue shift.

It is not the "answer" dumbarse. It is the data.

Persisting in your folly.

Since the "Big Bang" is expansion that is exactly what would be expected.

Lol, you now claim to know what HTS will say. Why don't you ask HTS, instead of making such a claim?
You shouldn't need to argue with her, if you know her thoughts, right? Well, you do the same with most everything.

I just said that even someone as stupid as HTS should know what was wrong with your statement.

I regret saying that now. I sometimes forget how massively stupid HTS actually is.

Nothing to compete with you, to be sure, but still looking up at double digit IQs in astonished wonder.

Half the data is blue shift, blue shift means contraction. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Incorrect. 99% of the galactic data is red shift. Only a few galaxies in our local group show blue shifts.

So, you are dead wrong, again.

Or is that dead wrong, still?!

Tell us anything in our universe that has no negative side. Tell us anything that has no positive side.

The Big Bang cannot be, if it has no negative side. Nothing else in the universe has just one side or direction.

Oh gosh dogen, you may prove me wrong. You seem not to have a good side, nothing positive to add and nothing new.

One can know the evidence when each boy of evidence backs the other.

Blue shift does not back red shift.

Blue shift

Do we need more than one refutation per nonsensical idea? Over 99% of all galaxies are red shift. Nothing outside of our local group is blue shifted.

Broken clocks are right twice a day and you can't even keep up with them.

Refuting you is positive. Easy, but positive.

Does this mean you are too ignorant to understand the point or that you are trying to smokescreen the fact that you lost again.

Rhetorical question. Don't bother.

Did you listen to them?

Did you understand them?

If so then can we expect you to admit you are wrong anytime soon?
