Har Mar is a funny little shopping mall in Roseville Minnesota. It is the home of the annual Twin Cities Creation Science Science Fair. Sometimes we visit the science fair, but it is not to laugh at the students….
… that would be rude and uncivil, and despite the fact that politeness and civility are EVILE, when it comes to children we should not be all in their faces.
Rather, we go to the funny little mall to enjoy each other’s company, those of us who wish we got together more often than we do, to browse through the Creation Science Fair displays, and to size up the local creationist scene.
For me, I will also be stopping at Radio Shack because I need a switch box to make my Roku work more seamlessly with my TV.
In my experience, there are the following kinds of displays at the science fair:
1) True creation science, like a poster on how Noah built the Ark, with a suitable biblical quote attached.
2) Regular science that is not too well done, presumably because the supervision on these Christian Home Schooler projects probably isn’t very good … such as a poster a few years back demonstrating that hot water freezes before cold water … with a suitable biblical quote attached.
3) Half way decent actual science projects. With a suitable biblical quote attached.
We’ll be gathering around 10:30 or 11 in or near the Barnes and Noble, and later on, about 1:00, lunch most likely at Chicago Pizza. (But I note that Har Mar has a veritable cornucopia of dining options in case Pizza does not suit your tastes.)
As has been said many times by many people: Just observe, converse politely, do not lay ideology on the children.
Huxley will be there, if things go as planned. I’m hoping the creationists will have a baby named Wilberforce.
