Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 180300 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."

My prediction is that you will continue to post psuedoscience based on your internal paranoid delusional system. Your posts will be filled with grandiose idea that have little relationship with the external world.
I also predict that you will get real worked up because this is hitting very close to home and that you will call me "dogshit" or some other disparaging term based loosely on my screen name or other attributes.
Remember:
carpet tacks
dyslexia
spin gravity
spewing black holes
You have a complete inability to comprehend basic science but have grandiose ideas that you are contributing to it and the grandiose idea that you know more than all the professional PhD scientists in the world. You have paranoid ideas about the educational system, government, Jews, scientists, educators,.........
And more to the point, your continuous anger at nearly everything and everyone.
All this will continue because your brain is just slightly out of balance of neurotransmitters.
I further predict you will be angry and miserable till the end of your days because you will not take a little blue and white pill.
I dare you to prove me wrong, especially on the last issue!

Part 2
The Coast Guard arrived a little past dawn. What a great sight, but the Donald was listing badly and the ropes were floating in the water with other hazards. My head was still foggy from slamming into the bulk head. One propeller was out of the water on one side, the ropes and gear on the other and the Coast Guard boat couldn't get close.
We were told to jump in the water and swim to the line the Coast Guard had deployed. To this day I don't know why that second captain left both props running. I know he was trying to get the boat to shallow water and ground it, but at the time I wasn't thinking clearly.
I think I jumped second and got to the line. I was sooo happy. When we got in and warm and fed, a camera man and woman interviewed me for the briefest of times. She said it would be on the news at 5 or 6 and maybe 11, but I didn't see it.
Anyway, we were due to go back out on another tug and I said no, I was not feeling like I could go out, so my boss asked me to see a shrink, so I said ok. He talked a bit and then tried to hypnotize me, but that didn't work, so not sure if that time or next visit, he gave me a psych evaluation and I said ok.
The first few questions were ok, but I came to a 2 part question and this is what makes me know the insurance co's and lawyers are controlling the doctors and psychologists. The 2 part question was,---do you feel depressed and do you feel like killing yourself. I told the shrink that I was somewhat depressed that I didn't feel I could do my job at the moment, but that hell no, I didn't feel like killing myself. The shrink said I had to answer both questions, but both were either yes or no in a combined answer, so I said I would not answer such an ignorant question. He said if I didn't, then everything would stop and I'd be let go of that job.
During this time I agreed to go out on a tug for a ride, just to see how I felt. I did, but didn't feel secure yet.
So I lost that job and couldn't collect workers comp for recuperation time, thanks to the shrinks test, for the insurance companies.
At that time, I wasn't running the fishing vessel, but with some time I got over it and went back as a fishing captain.

So you had a closed head injury. Is this when your delusions started?

Why did you have to undergo a psych evaluation? One only has a psych evaluation for insurance if you were using psychological problems as the reason for the claim.

If they found that you do not have a psychological disorder then I think you got screwed.

The spiritual aspect of the human spirit draws us to God. Atheists can't bear to thing of anyone finding something they have missed, so they are trying to do away with iit all together.
Though others have tried, that has never happened, and it never will. Faith in God when it gets into the human spirit is a SUPERnatural experience that few who ever find it want to turn away from! Want proof, look around!
Define "spiritual."

I'm going to expose you BS boy.
Show everyone here you should judge when people go to the looney bin as you claim. Do so by this simple test.
Explain the psychology behind the red light cameras, their causes and effects.
That should be easy for any psych grad in a top university as you claim, right dogshit?

The issue is not the “kangaroo effect”(which has been refuted) nor the "1984 effect" (needs further study) but rather your personal mental health issues.

And I am not saying you need to go to the "looney bin" but rather a bit of counseling and medication to re-balance your neurotransmitters may be in order.

Little to lose. Best case you feel a lot better and your thinking improved. Worse case you stop taking it.

And I imagine your response will be to deny you were talking about either the “kangaroo effect” or the "1984 effect" in favor of something you concocted.

Not at all once I consider the source.

[QUOTE who="One way or another"]<quoted text> I mean, you call people on here insane, because they have different theories or go against your religion, so do tell us why dogshit.

I enjoy different theories, assuming they are reasonably flushed out. Same with different hypotheses if they reasonably conform to the known facts. But when someone makes up useless tripe and tries to assert that it is better than what countless professional scientists think..... not so much.

Even that would not be so bad if the person putting forth the ideas would read the responses and deal with that information appropriately.

I wonder what the AMA would say about people like you, offering a doctors or shrinks advice for free!

I am offering friendly advice to a fellow human being. You are, as always, free to ignore my suggestions and I don't seriously expect you to follow through.

That would be completely out of character for you.

But if there is an off chance then I would be remiss in my duty as a fellow human being, as a Christian and as a mental health professional.

You may now resume being hateful if that makes you feel any better. I suspect it does in the short run, but not in the long.... eh?

Better educated, clearly.

You do not seem to be stupid to me. You seem delusional. That is not a personal failing, that is a medical (brain chemistry) issue.

Disingenuous question usually receive disingenuous answers.

Is this something that you are unable to look up on your own and therefore have to ask here?

One more claim that you are a shrink, or you claim anyone is medically sick, with your claims of a top college degree in that field and your claims of sending people to the looney bin, I will contact the AMA and see what they have to say. You have made those claims permanent on this site.

[sigh]. I am not nor have never claimed to be a doctor. Therefor I am not under the jurisdiction of the AMA. I am simply reporting to you what I have observed so you can act on it or not.

All that shit and you're too stupid to show the people here the evidence or proof, that you understand psychology.

Poor dogshit, claims he has an education from a top university, yet he runs away from showing us.

Just a simple psychological test dogshit. What causes and affects can come about because of the red light cameras, any causes and affects.

So you are going to ignore my last post on this and move the goal posts.

I don't claim to understand psychology. I just have 20 years of experience, a masters degree and about a third of the way to a Ph.D. I am far from understanding the human mind.

Still distracting from the real issue.

You don't have to admit I called you out on your insurance story.

Nor that you desperately want to change the subject or ignore the issue but can't simply stop replying to this thread.

I keep pointing out to you what you are doing. You get that and you hate it.

Could you do a better job of acting grandiose if you TRIED? I don't really see how. You know more than all the Ph.D's in the world. You refute all of science. What an extraordinary brain you have. You are easily a hundred times as brilliant as Einstein.

Or is that unlikely for some reason.

Do you really read what I post to you? Begin your reply with the number 6 if you have read this far.

So the disorder that you suspect Jimbo has, is that treatable, or are we stuck with it?
