My Uncle Is A Man Named Steve (Not A Monkey)

Ahh, the joys of a creationist science fair.

The winning project (Elementary level) proves that her uncle is no monkey:

Cassidy Turnbull (grade 5) presented her uncle, Steve. She also showed photographs of monkeys and invited fairgoers to note the differences between her uncle and the monkeys. She tried to feed her uncle bananas, but he declined to eat them. Cassidy has conclusively shown that her uncle is no monkey.

That’s really cute, and also totally hilarious.

At the high school level, the winners proved that prayer helps bacteria become more resistant to antibiotics. Because let me tell you, what we really want at this point in the game are extra-resistant bacteria.

  1. Don’t forget the middle school level where 2nd place went to a boy who “proved” that women were designed for homemaking. THAT explains why I can’t decide on a career–I wasn’t designed to have one. phew! I don’t need more education, I just need an apron. Silly me!

  3. So you think that’s cute, huh? Huh. I think it’s insidious and evil, and if it weren’t the indoctrination of children I’d just roll my eyes and fuggedaboutit, but as it is, this kind of thing make my blood boil, and the desire to scream with rage is almost .. it’s … eeeeeeAaaAAHHHHHHRRRRRRRRGGGGGGG!

  5. Quote: “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.”

    They gave this little bastard a PRIZE for this shite? I am speechless, honestly…(and you know how often THAT happens.)

  7. I wish they had shown us that honorable mention, “pokemon prove evolutionism false” for the elementary section. by the way i’ve checked out that entire site. in one part, an old fart of a pastor thinks he saw a dinsaur. the proof? a picture lifted of Jurrasic park.
