Should evolution be taught in high school?

As much as I enjoy sports I must agree to a degree. I hate a lot of the sports drama, politics and capitalism. I especially hate it when politicians feel they must get involved in the supervision of sports. I remember my father telling me about sports figures from when he grew up. They were a part of the local community. When the game was done they returned to the day to day life of being a butcher, carpenter, mechanic, factory worker or whatever they did. Where did those days go?  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #68234)

You equating sexual conundrum during puberty to homosexuality? Interesting I've never heard of a respected psychiatric journal or expert ever making such an assertion.  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #18234)

Interesting... Do you as a (obviously non accepting) heterosexual want nothing more than to see all homosexuals forced to live a lifestyle that is agreeable to your way of thinking?  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #18233)

I think this is a good question you can ask yourself. Do you go to the public bathroom expecting to see a transsexual? About one in around 8000 people can expect to use the same public bathroom at the same time as a transsexual over the course of a lifetime. Out of those about one in ten would actually recognizes the possibility that a transsexual is in the restroom with them. Now these are generous numbers I have come up with that don't include cross-dressers or transvestites. Nor does it include sexual predators that sometimes assume the presentation of a ts or cd/tv. I'm a pre-op m2f ts and at times I must use the public ladies room. Over the the last 15 years I've had no problems. I'm fortunate that I blend very well I guess. Others aren't so fortunate. The public restroom is a gender specific safe zone that most if not all people will be uncomfortable sharing with those who are obviously the opposite sex.  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #18232)

Cartoons, driving at high speed and pro wrestling will never equate to sports in general to me. I rather enjoy football, soccer, hockey, college basketball and lacrosse. I only get bored if my favorite team totally sucks.  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #68230)

Geeks and the physical/mental misfortunate are the clear majority into pro wrestling. It is a platform where they can identify with characters that portray strength, courage and sexual icons. They use these characters to emulate a persona that is greater than the cards life has given them. As a matter of fact most of the fan base comes from areas where religious fundamentalism is the social standard.  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #68225)

You may be honest and upfront about your faith but that says nothing for science other than you will make a somewhat valid claim and then turn a blind eye to the rest of the puzzle. I remember seeing a YEC website that claimed that the decay rate of Thorium-230 on the moon proved a young Earth. It does have a short decay period but comes from the decay of Uranium-238 which has a long VERY LONG decay period. Creationists read the whole story of magic but when it comes to the science they stop at the point were evidence hurts the validity of their 2-3000 yo story. Why is that?  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #68223)

Everywhere you see intelligent design I see a design that is intelligent. If there was a designer fine tuning species you would see more of a uniform adaptation to situations. What we have is unique adaptations that lead to a similar end. Flight for example. Birds, bats and bugs have developed unique ways of dealing with flight. As different as their methods are from each other they all have the same result. If what you say is true then African Americans should be turning white at a real time measurable rate. Also they should already have the mutated gene that determines eye color as Europeans do. No evidence supports this.  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #68215)

Actually you bring up a good point. Eyeball size and ratio to pupil can vary. My wife has some huge eyes and pupils. Much larger than mine. She is Polish and Ukrainian while I'm mostly Greek and Italian. I would like to see eye and pupil size research done between African and European populations. As far as citation perhaps you could draw upon interior design for a good real time model. Wood grain panels and dark earth colored carpets will carry less lumens than brightly colored walls and light colored carpet. Of course if you don't want to take the reality of what you can see for yourself just ask your optometrist. Light pigment color will carry more light into the eye. Dark eye pigment carries less. This is why your favorite athletic stars wear black strips below the eye. To draw light glare away.  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #68208)

Urban Cowboy Have you ever noticed the differences in people from different latitudes? There would appear to be a gain of information involved in the manifestations of their differences. For example dark skinned/brown eyed people from middle latitudes have better protection from the suns harmful rays. This is advantageous for them because their ancestry is from areas that receive the most intense sunlight over the course of their lifetime. People with ancestry from northern latitudes have lighter skin, and light pigment eye color is far more prevalent than brown. Light pigment allows more sunlight to be absorbed by the skin which helps in the production of vitamin D. Light eye color pigments allow more light to enter the eye which helps vision on dark winter days. This is obviously a direct result of lower sunlight levels in these areas that one can expect to see in their lifetime. Just an example of beneficial mutations as early humans migrated out of Africa.  (Aug 15, 2011 | post #68142)

Hmm I remember this article. I also remember thanking you for pointing me toward it as it supported the debate I was having with another poster. Hardly stumped me honey.  (Aug 8, 2011 | post #67708)

How many hard core gay agenda activists can you list? What ratio do they repesent in the gay population? Maybe you should learn to tune those people out.  (Aug 8, 2011 | post #18083)
