Should evolution be taught in high school?

There are 179705 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."

advice to you kids,
take physics at a level its a great subject at that stage.
take maths at degree
hardest thing your ever do.
take a long break
yoga and meditation only strictly no sex
take a phd in engineering
combining the two
take a doctorate in rocket science its the only way to fly baby.

one thing is for sure
at all times keep an open mind
don't be bullied by anyone
try to speak from the heart not the mind.

no you should not be gazing at the stars forever
trying to spot a twinkling star.
get yourself a dictionary of science
and then learn some terms to talk about.
you know we could all do with that right now.
if judge don't give a star here they are dead on the inside.

That is a pretty good reason to think you are stupid. But I was responding to your remark "... except for the American Indian, all are immigrants .." EVERYONE on the North American Continent is an immigrant, dumb butt!
If you are determined to see everything as it relates to the ancient earth, you will never be able to make sense of a logical question that pertains to the earth in the recent past...I.E. AMERICA!!! And your name calling is so immature and shows your insecurity. You really should work in that, dear!

Can't believe I've actually seen an evolutionist who believes we can think past the natural mind. Thinking from the heart....huh!

The one logical statement I've seen written by an evolutionist on here recently is that Religion ( hopefully he includes the religion and God of the Bible) should be in the History classroom, not in the Science Classroom.
Frankly, I don't think many Jewish or Christian Believers would object, as long as our true heritage and the role the Bible played in the lives of many of our Founding Fathers is taught. That is FACT based on documented evidence. Therefore it should be included somewhere.
And before some idiot asks, no, I don't care if they teach what Muhammad means to the Muslums! That also is FACT based on documented evidence!

perhaps i am being a little harsh on st John
perhaps there were
a few of us who believed that on some grounds
Earth could be changed for the better.
and that heaven was a good enough metre of logic
to pass judgement on the Earth.

but think about it heaven is no place for apes.
hells meanwhile fallen mankind ape
its a perfect fit.
and a wonderful relationship.
Carthusians wouldn't be down here in the first place
if it wasn't to learn from the ape.

trust me we will never adopt it
as a policy document
were only interested in the blueprint.
so far we have a rough idea
what stands for what.

it is our mission to bring back the evidence
one way or another
regardless of what you might think
we are only here to help.

Get real, SZ. You know exactly what I am talking about. You won't be able to explain away the supernatural going on around us any better than you have been able to explain away Intelligent Design!
When you have no logical answer, but want to be heard anyway, you play stupid word games!
What supernatural? Such a thing has never been demonstrated.
