Butterfly Effect, The - Scars in the Hands
I think there is a logical problem while Evan is in Jail. The Moment he wants to prove that he has contact with Jesus, he goes back in time, Paints a Picture of the Nazis and hurts himself. So when he comes back, he's got the scars in his hands, and Carlos(I think that was his name) can't belive his eyes. BUT if Evan hurt himself in the past, he must have had the scars all the time from the kindergarten-scene to the jail-scene, so he also had the scars when he entered the jail, so Carlos should've said something like "you've had these scars all time along. Nothing changed" because it's only "new" to Evan.

Good one--that's very true. As well, if you think about it, all his other passages through time resulted in him having a different future. Isn't it very likely that if he had pierced his hands in class that the resulting consequences (such as being sent to a psychiatric institution or such because what seven year old kid purposely stabs himself in the middle of the classroom), wouldn't the consequences of that action result in him living out a different future than the one in which he was in the jail?

WRONG. You got it wrong. Evan wanted to prove Carlos that he really goes back in time, and can change the future. So basically, what he did was in that memory, he changed it, and pierced his hands in those things. It only happened when he recalled it, in jail, and it didn't really happen in the past. You just got it wrong, that's all. Or else, how could you explain he knew he hurt himself in that memory, in oreder to prove carlos? He did that on purpose, when he remembered it.
