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.

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.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

Headshot of Editor in Chief of Mother Jones, Clara Jeffery

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
