Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 180394 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."

Space is not a vacuum.

The speed of light test done in a vacuum over 20 miles is total BS, as space is not a vacuum. It has trillions of tons of dust, if you believe in star nurseries, billions of miles of gas clouds, trillions of tons of plasma from the billions of suns and their ejections, trillions of tons of cosmic rays that all tend to divert and break up light, from as close as the moon, as science proves.

There is no vacuum in space, the kind that man can bring about on earth, in space, ENTIRELY DEVOID of matter.

Trillions of tons of matter is all through out space, according to science.

How is it scientists are too stupid to understand that there is no vacuum in space?

vacuum[ vak-yoom,-yoo-uh m,- yuh m ]
noun
1. a space entirely devoid of matter.
2. an enclosed space from which matter, especially air, has been partially removed so that the matter or gas remaining in the space exerts less pressure than the atmosphere (plenum).
3. the state or degree of exhaustion in such an enclosed space.

If even 1 gram of matter was between your ears, we might not have the posts you produce to read for our enjoyment. Vacuum does have something to offer after all.

Here is a link that may help you. No it is not to a mental health organization. You will have to make those steps on your own.

You will notice that it points out that the vacuum of space is greater than what can be achieved in a laboratory on earth. Whether it is greater than the vacuum you have achieved cranially remains for some future scientist to determine.

What proof does man have, that proves that space has less matter than what man can achieve? Has man gone through out space, gathering samples?

If as science claims that there is enough dust in space to create whole worlds and stars on a constant basis, why didn't your web site speak of that?

Keep pretending to be stupid, it fits you.

To have star nurseries, --plural, as science claims and it takes dust beyond measure almost, to create a star, science contradicts itself terribly, while all scientist must be stupid or stoned, not to point it out to science as a whole.

We are going through space right now. You have heard by now I am sure, but we have a whole program designed to explore space. It is amazing. You should really look into it. They have sent chimps into orbit, so even you have a shot at making the trip.

If you looked at the link I provided and obviously you didn't, you would have seen one way reported about how measurements of vacuum are achieved. I know, reading that pesky link would have just put rational ideas into your head and you definitely don't want that.

So just to clarify, when you posted the above - you were just adding more lies/BS to the veritable mountain you had already posted.

Good stuff - knew we would get there in the end.

We knew you couldn't back up your ideas - just wanted you to admit it.

As an aside, what the hell is up with South Carolina. Is there a moratorium on intelligence in that state I haven't heard about. It seems like a large number of idiots post on this forum from that state. Maybe it is one idiot with a lot of spare time on its hands.

Just admit that you, with your 10th grade education and carpetlaying experience, know more about physics and astronomy than all the physicists and astronomers and astrophysicists in the world who have actually gotten themselves educated on their specialties. Just say it. Admit what you know, deep down, is ridiculous.

Poor Ashley. He tried to argue against lunar laser ranging by claiming that it has never undergone peer review, and when it was pointed out that it had, he retreated to his usual childish insults.

I'm surprised he even managed to find 3 different women to marry him, given his behavior.

Space is not a vacuum.

Science claims space is a vacuum

New science by Jim Ryan

The speed of light test done in a vacuum over 20 miles is total BS, because man can achieve a totally closed and complete vacuum, while space cannot. It has trillions of tons of dust, if you believe in star nurseries, as science claims, coupled with billions of miles of gas clouds, trillions of tons of plasma, from the billions of suns and their ejections, trillions of tons of cosmic rays that all tend to divert and break up light, from as close as the moon, as science proves.

There is no vacuum in space, the kind that man can bring about on earth, ENTIRELY DEVOID of matter.

Trillions of tons of matter is all through out space, according to science.

2. an enclosed space from which matter, especially air, has been partially removed so that the matter or gas remaining in the space exerts less pressure than the atmosphere (plenum).
3. the state or degree of exhaustion in such an enclosed space.

To have star nurseries,--plural, as science claims and it takes dust beyond measure almost, to create a star, never mind many stars in many nurseries, as science claims, science contradicts itself terribly, while all scientist must be stupid or stoned, not to point it out to science as a whole.

As far as Jimbo is concerned the whole of the US has been dumbed down, he famously quoted a study saying US citizens were 26th (<------ take note of this number) on a league table of some sort.

Then claimed this meant that the US was 26 (<----- again take note) times less educated than other countries.

I am sure you can spot the synaptic misfire but strangely Jim never got it, oh well we can add basic numerical skills to the list of things he doesn't get.

To be fair to you yanks if Jimbo wasn't born there you guys would be awesome on the league tables

Hold the phone. Is this the "carpet whisper" of old? How did I miss that. Boy you need a score card to keep up with this forum.
