U forgot teh double parenthses for POLYGON => POLYGON((... ...))

it is

(GeomFromText('POLYGON((-141.089 36.393 -52.089 89.785)',4326)));

and not

(GeomFromText('POLYGON(-141.089 36.393 -52.089 89.785)',4326));

and furthermore your geometries requires more points (>3 not 1)

I have created a table, and corresponding spatial table as per the
documentation, i.e.:

CREATE TABLE service_endpoints (
        service_id integer,
        service_type varchar(10),
        version varchar(5),
        title varchar(500),
        abstract varchar(8192),
        keywords varchar(8192),
        organization varchar(100),
        contact_email varchar(50),
        onlineresource varchar(255),
        endpoint_capabilities varchar(255),
        endpoint_getresource varchar(255),
        minx decimal(10,5),
        miny decimal(10,5),
        maxx decimal(10,5),
        maxy decimal(10,5),
        fees varchar(50),
        accessconstraints varchar(50),
        creation_date timestamp,
        update_date timestamp,
        owner_user_id varchar(50),
        lang varchar(5),
        last_check_time timestamp,
        available boolean,
        average_response_time_seconds integer


...when I try to add basic tabular values, everything works fine.

When I try to add geometry:

(GeomFromText('POLYGON(-141.089 36.393 -52.089 89.785)',4326));

..I received an error "ERROR: parse error - invalid geometry".

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
