Kicking Science in the Yam-Bag

Why do we do this to science? If you don't believe in Evolution, fine. But masking your whacked out religious beliefs under the flag of a "Science Fair" is not just wrong, it's counter productive in every imaginable way. These people aren't just ignoring reality, they are actively working to teach children the opposite of reality.

Check out this winner in the Middle School division:

2nd Place: "Women Were Designed For Homemaking"

Jonathan Goode (grade 7) applied findings from many fields of science to support his conclusion that God designed women for homemaking: physics shows that women have a lower center of gravity than men, making them more suited to carrying groceries and laundry baskets; biology shows that women were designed to carry un-born babies in their wombs and to feed born babies milk, making them the natural choice for child rearing; social sciences show that the wages for women workers are lower than for normal workers, meaning that they are unable to work as well and thus earn equal pay; and exegetics shows that God created Eve as a companion for Adam, not as a co-worker.

What...the...fuck?!?!?! We'll be seeing him on Jerry Springer one day no doubt.

You may want to go and see this train wreck for yourself. These people will some day be voters and work in government. I weep.

Pity they can't grasp one of the best lines from "MIB"...

"A thousand years ago everybody knew as a fact, that the earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on it. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow..."

I do love the life cannot come from non life "experiment". What a hoot!
As far as the prayer experiment, I would like to see a replication of the study, using similarly devote scientists. I'd also like to see if a non prayer based study using the same methods acheived the same ends.

I'd like to see the results of the one where they whispered "God is a Giant Flying Spaghetti Monster" into the petri dish.
