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."

Addendum!

With good and bad in everything, science needs to take a complete approach, but so far, science has limited its thinking to what the incrowd feels safe, In all presentations.

Just as the Evo morons criticize all not just like themselves, hence, a tiny bit of new thinking in all science, save the latest in computer technology.

There is sooo very much cross checking science could do, but it seems science is like schools, in that it goes about its business, as taught in schools.

Pathetic, just as medicine could be so much further along, if Not for self and dominance.

Well, it makes more sense than anything Jim has come up with.
I find that slightly worrying :-)

But does illustrate my point that you don't have to be a raving lunatic to come up with nonsense.

Clueless as shown by the drivel he posts
Dishonest - as he insists no-one can refute his drivel - we do - he ignores it.
Would have sympathy if he wasn't such an obnoxious git

Tell us, what part of the body is most at risk for disease to enter and why? Then tell us how science can benefit from such.

I sort of noticed that as well, but I keep hoping he's not completely insane. He just insists on proving that he is. It's like he hates religious people and wants to make them all look insane.

Except he does not rant about religious stuff nearly as much as our other fundies. Of all the fundies we regularly encounter in these forums I am convinced that Psycho is the most genuinely mentally disturbed. Lots of anger, a big chip on his shoulder, paranoia, a grandiose delusions. Most of the others are just religiously preoccupied which is not a (diagnosable) mental disorder.

To be fair, initially I was keen to engage jimbo/carpet whisperer/pet whisperer/psychology

when first saw his posts some 18 months ago - other posters here warned me he was not just 'a sandwich short of a picnic' but also lacking in beverages , snacks, utensils and a field to have the alfresco gastronomic feast in.

I still tried but his occasional rants that demonstrate his anti-semetism and mysogenistic crap now put him down to the bottom of my list of who I would give a fig about.

I will let you make up your own mind

Let me guess, you think people sitting around and just praying about it will make the viruses all die. Yeah, that's a good way to get things done.
