Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 179706 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."

We see how no one accepts the challenge of the teachers pet and the utter stupidity it taught for over 200 years in school.
By doing such for 200 years, we can easily see the stupidity of the copy and paste school system, how it teaches your kids to hate and it teaches them to be stupid.
So the so called psychology professionals run away from the truth and discussion. Hahahahahahahaha, you morons, you wouldn't know psychology if it bit you.
Psychology of ignorance taught in school!
What are the things that teachers do, that teach ignorance and hatred?
College? Lol your teachers prove the stupidity you taught them. Higher education, what a joke.
Any psychologists here?
What a school system, aye!
Yet your education isn't suffice to support your 'new science' and discuss the experiment I outlined that shows it wrong.

Think will stick with the education thanks

Not since the 15th century anyway. But before then literal interpretation was partly the cause of the dark ages.

Well, literalism started to creep in starting in 1090 a.d. It is really a formulation of western society that developed along with western European civilization.

But no mon frere - I have exposed your dishonesty and total lack of rational thought , but the more you dodge my simple experiment the more it shows your TOTAL insanity.

Tell you what, I am turning in, so suggest you do your normal protocol and keep posting rubbish for the next 5 hours in the hope that someone will give you some attention , eventually giving up as you realise no one really cares.

I have better things to do
