Should evolution be taught in high school?

Which impossibilities are those?  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151550)

Mutation isn't slow. Where did you ever get that idea?  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151547)

And, it's not hard to confuse a mathematician with basic biology. Instead of math and arguments, why not, oh, I don't know...get some EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE? You know, like SCIENCE?  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151543)

Americans who refer to "evolutionist s" never actually understand what evolution is. Does evolution occur? You say you didn't say it doesn't occur. Does it actually occur? And, are there and mechanisms that limit how much change can occur over infinite generations?  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151541)

You're assuming what we'd detect would be comprehensible as a language. Did you know that what you're proposing is at the waaaaaaay fringe of what SETI is trying to pick up? More to the point, what is your point?  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151539)

Wow. No.  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151538)

Just to be clear: you acknowledge that you're not a scientist, but you're still going to try to tell the entire scientific community they don't know how to do science. Lovely.  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151537)

Do you deny saying they found intact DNA? Do you deny saying it isn't actually intact DNA, but is instead material consistent with DNA (like the rotten decomposed remains of a loaf of bread is not actually bread)? Was it intact DNA, or was it something other than intact DNA? Either way, you're forced to admit a lie.  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151536)

But, not DNA. Steak is not a cow. Beer is not wheat. Peptides are not DNA. You said it was INTACT DNA. Your words. Now, you admit it is NOT intact DNA. You lied. Repeatedly. And, now you admit your lies. Good for you for that shred of accidental honesty.  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151508)

It's the Darwin crowd that lacks the facts in evolution d...

What about we let the evidence lead us to the conclusion, rather than formulating conclusions and then looking for evidence to support them? You know, like science?  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #121449)

So, NOT intact DNA, then. Thanks for finally admitting that you've been lying for months.  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151485)

Mere peptides? What happened to intact DNA?  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151480)

Chemicals consistent with DNA is not the same as DNA. A bucket full of water, yeast, malted barley, wheat, and hops has chemicals consistent with beer, as does a rotten pile of beef and cow bones is chemically consistent with a cow but is not a cow.  (Sep 11, 2013 | post #151479)
