Should evolution be taught in high school?

Feb 24, 2008 Full story: www.scientificblogging.com 174,462

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

For your Wiki source:
"It is believed that the overwhelming majority of mutations have no significant effect on an organism's fitness."
Better have that foot looked at.
<quoted text>
Again, from your Wiki source:
The Big Bang is not an explosion of matter moving outward to fill an empty universe. Instead, space itself expands with time everywhere and increases the physical distance between two comoving points.
You might try reading this stuff first.

i figure because my actual height is the only concrete
thing so far as i can tell,
888 feet tall
this must make my bully beef,
at least 40% of a mile long?

Two questions.
If the Big Bang was not an explosion, why are all galaxies traveling at hundreds of thousands of miles per hour?
In other words, if there was no Big Bang to propel the galaxies to such speeds, what did and show evidence.
The next is, if galaxies travel so fast, how did individual planets settle into a place in one

that would increase friction and turbulence, dummy. It would make things worse not better.

You remind me of two saying of my good friend, Chip Todd:

"Anything is possible if you don't know what you're talking about."

And

"Knowing nothing beats knowing something that ain't so."

No clearly you are the one that's lying. I don't have to believe your fairy tales. If there was any decent evidence you would have shown it to us by now. You need to be honest for once and admit the whole thing is a crock. Microbes to man indeed! You don't really believe that for one minute. You just chose to live a lie for ideological reasons. Please don't respond.

Sorry man, but the whole of science supports evolution.

If you don't like it then you don't like science.

The fossil record has too many holes and is missing way too many transitional fossils.

Incorrect.
