Bennett Gordon has a post on the Har Mar Science Fair:

…Every diorama in the Home School Science Fair, which took place inside a shopping mall in Roseville, Minnesota, had a biblical quote attached to it. A young woman whose project involved teaching her dog how to run circles between her legs decorated the words: “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” (John 14:15) in pink lace fabric. This quote got to the crux of the science fair, in my opinion: parental commandment. These parents pulled their children out of school, away from their peers, and said, “Now prove that Darwin was wrong.”…

Great post, interesting comments. Here.

    So see this is a yearly thing?

    A couple of us are planning to go on the same mission to ask these kids about their scientific data. Hopefully we won’t flake out due to pity. It’s bad enough these kids are indoctrinated this badly beyond the 7th – 12th grade level.
    Probably won’t be pity though, it would be sheer anger that causes us to walk out before we go barking at some poor bystanding kid.
