Let there be a science fair!

Next February, Cincinnati’s Creation Museum will hold a science fair for budding creationists. All students in grades 7-12 are encouraged to apply, provided they agree with Answers in Genesis’ Statement of Faith, which includes the following items:

2. The account of origins presented in Genesis is a simple but factual presentation of actual events and therefore provides a reliable framework for scientific research into the question of the origin and history of life, mankind, the Earth and the universe.

3. The various original life-forms (kinds), including mankind, were made by direct creative acts of God. The living descendants of any of the original kinds (apart from man) may represent more than one species today, reflecting the genetic potential within the original kind. Only limited biological changes (including mutational deterioration) have occurred naturally within each kind since Creation.

4. The great Flood of Genesis was an actual historic event, worldwide (global) in its extent and effect.

Thanks J-Walk Blog. After the jump: a sampling of other upcoming events at the Creation Museum, including a screening of a DVD about “the rampant misinformation propagated by ecological alarmists” and a lecture called, intriguingly, “God Didn’t Make Any Apemen:”

Highlights from the Creation Museum’s events calendar:

DVD Screening: Global Warming: A Scientific and Biblical Exposé of Climate Change”

What is the truth about global warming? Come see a special showing of Answers in Genesis’ new DVD “Global Warming: A Scientific and Biblical Exposé of Climate Change” at the Creation Museum. This bold new documentary is an exciting and important tool for all who face the rampant misinformation propagated by ecological alarmists. Global Warming addresses subjects that most others won’t touch, including misinformation which is contained in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

Lecture: God Didn’t Make Any Apemen

Come join Dr. Menton in this exciting workshop about supposed missing links! He will teach you how to recognize the hoax behind the so-called ape man remains and you will learn that God didn’t make any Apemen. Dr. Menton was associate professor of anatomy for many years at the respected Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and holds a PhD in cell biology from the Ivy League, Brown University. Audiences of all ages enjoy Dr. Menton’s well-illustrated (and often humorous) presentations. To learn more about Dr. Menton please visit: http://www.answersingenesis.org/events/bio.aspx?Speaker_ID=3

Lecture: Lucy: She’s No Lady

This workshop focuses Dr. Menton’s art for the absurd on the fiction of supposed ape ancestors and exposes the evolutionary propaganda in a side-splitting depiction. He will leave no doubt that the famous “Lucy” fossils belong to a knuckle-walking, apelike creature … who was not a lady! Dr. Menton was associate professor of anatomy for many years at the respected Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and holds a PhD in cell biology from the Ivy League, Brown University. Audiences of all ages enjoy Dr. Menton’s well-illustrated (and often humorous) presentations.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
