Should evolution be taught in high school?

Feb 24, 2008 Full story: www.scientificblogging.com 174,428

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." Full Story

You pretend to be too stupid, to recognize what science writes about bacteria, as a collective.

Are you too stupid to find it? I can always do it for you.

Funny, but we do know you have more than enough stupid to spread around topix.
You could probably dumb down the whole site.

So you refuse to speak to the subject, because you have nothing of value. You're offensive to American care or intelligence. Go back to your foreign country. Americans aren't taught like you foreign idiots.

How does this become an issue of being anti American ?

People disagree with you for reasons unrelated to your nationality e.g.

You post your nonsense science, insist it is supported by evidence but refuse to discuss the lack of evidence.

You insist that no one can refute you - but ignore any posts that do

You blame everyone else for your shortcomings , Jews, congress, banks, foreigners, women

You act like a 5 year old child and call every morons when you don't get your way.

As I say - its not that you are an American , its because you are an uneducated, lying , racist , mysogistic loon who doesn't take responsibilty for his own failings and try to educate himself.

Unless you are saying you are a typical yank - in which case it is you who is being anti-American.

All the American moms and dads I was exposed too, said that only cowards work in groups, against individuals.

American moms and dads don't teach the Anti-American tactics that your group of Evo morons do. Hence, you are anti-American cowards, unable to stand on your own two feet.

That's just the American way!

Really Jim?- could it just not be that the majority find you objectionable and come to this conclusion independently ?

And who is the real coward ? I have asked you many times to :-

Point out the evidence in your immunology nonsense
Try my simple experiment to test your 'light theory'

And each time you studiously ignored the posts - rather than actually defending and /or testing your 'new science', knowing that if you didn't ignore the points I made you would have to face up to the fact that you have a problem, and your science doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

So - who's the coward?

Not a betting man - but odds are this post will be ignored - which kind of proves my point.

The Evo cowards act in concert. They hate any new thinking, they twist word and meaning, they overstate what people say, they cry on each others shoulders When one of the Evo morons is proven to be an idiot by his her own words, then other Evo morons run in, attacking the one that dared show how the Evo morons words proved him herself wrong.

It is very clear that you act as a cowardly pack of anti-Americans. Our culture teaches us that you are cowards, acting as foreigners.

Still the American coward I take it - as you have totally dodged my last 3 posts.

No problem - is what I expect from an American coward such as you - I have better things to do.

Suggest you post your paranoid nonsense for the next 6-8 hours.

Instead of proof that something is a surety, science has reversed proof, in favor of falsification. Science chooses a negative, instead of a positive.

Science has been usurped by evolution, which offers no proof. That's why it must demand falsification, instead of proof, that everything else in the world depends on.

Almost nothing in life depends on proof.

I have no proof that my wife is the best person to marry.
I have no proof that my car was the best choice.
I have no proof that taking my current job was the best choice.

If you think about it I bet the only time proof comes into your life is when you select your alcohol.

You are a more is better sort of guy, aren't you?

Just like evolution, global warming is a hoax played upon the unsuspecting by greedy liars with a huge vested interest in sustaining it even when all the data proves it wrong. They want to convince you that as far as anthropomorphic global warming is concerned, the debate is over. These anti-science, anti-progress nut cases are mostly government (taxpayer) funded to promote and pay homage to their political ideology so completely lacks independence or objectivity. Besides the end game of taxing the hell out of us and parking our cars and turning out our lights, third-world countries will also be held back because of this lunacy.
Yes, I have taken a break from one misinformation campaign to another. Seems every liberal cause is based on false information and is basically done for the same selfish reasons.
Why did Congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (from my district) announce yesterday that communities like hers there will be home under water in only few short years (due to sea level rise.)? Obama has declared war on the energy industry. And then the newspaper goes on to say they checked her facts by checking with a government agency (controlled by people like Obama and Wasserman-Schultz) that is paid to promote it. Wasserman-Schultz gets contributions from the very people set to gain from it's promotion. Obama has her out there spreading this global warming propaganda which of course she has no clue what she's talking about.(At least Al Gore took one Natural Science course at Harvard which he earned a very respectable "D" Grade!) I doubt little Debby has had even one science course.

There is no proof of spill over, because it would be wasting energy, plain and simple, unless the dam designers were morons like booger.

Yea, stupid dam designers should just let the dam collapse under excess pressure. Better to overload a power grid.

Outhouse schooled moron.
