Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 180376 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."

Lol, only an idiot like yourself proclaims such, while unable to refute what is written. However, we can't expect a copy and paste moron like you to actually have a sound arguement.

70% of your posts are copy/paste. And, why don't you prove us wrong about you being crazy by just not being crazy? Yeah, easier said than done.

And suspect he only reads 50% of his cut and pastes.

As evidenced by posting a critique of relativism as an argument against relativity

Or

According to you, 30% of what I post is not copy and paste, so why don't you children show the board, just one thing you write that is from your brain and not just the regurgitation of years of abuse y'all have suffered as children and now as those same children, you try to take it out on others.

Tsk, Tsk, children, I hear your mommies screaming for you.

I know what people with schizophrenia write like. I had one client keep a journal for at least a year. The post I referenced could have been right out of one of his notebooks.

Rambling, loose associations, anhedonia, parnoia....

I am not saying you have schizophrenia. You have paranoid personality disorder, grandiose type. I am just saying your last post demonstrated written symptoms of what schizophrenia patients evidence.

30%? That is close to the proportion of observations that make up your spin / gravity nonsense that by your own admission don't fit the rule.

Hey how's that for something that I worked out for myself.

Any thoughts on that yet ? Nah of course not.

Now now children, when you can refute what's written, do let us know.

He is just tired of being refuted by web sited devoted to very basic science. This is his way of trying to ignore reality.

There are clear cut exceptions in the rule of axis spin creating weather and 2 are Venus and Neptune.
So out of SEVEN observations TWO don't 'fit'

Brilliant hypothesis - but this is the point isn't it - it's not that people can't refute it - it's just that either you don't respond (dishonest) or you don't see it (delusional)

Children, if you feel the need to use a new alter ego, because you cannot refute the words of other people, that only makes you look worse.

Perhaps 2 or 4 new alter egos will work?

Schizophrenes have all kinds of thoughts that are all their own, but that doesn't make those thoughts worthwhile. But, you clearly have a different opinion. You're entitled to that. You're wrong, but that's your prerogative.

How is that not EXACTLY what you did? If you condemn us for doing that (which we don't, except as a mockery of your behavior), and you don't condemn yourself for doing that, how is that not hypocrisy, which is completely intellectually dishonest?
