Ideas for a Religious Science Fair Project

Halloween2000 This is just so disturbing that I don’t know what to say. I’d like to think that it’s a work of parody but I know it’s not. The Twin Cities Creation Science Association posted a lengthy list of projects that kids have asked about science fair projects. As far as I can tell there are a few real and quite valid science fair projects buried in there but to find them you have to skirt around quite a bit of foo. Discovering how glue works and if the position of the sun effects how tired we are sound valid to me but what is up with this question?

65. What affects skin color? Is one color better than another? What was God’s purpose in this?

Actually, I’m surprised that they would even bother putting such a sham on when clearly the religiously correct answer to each and every one of the questions posed is "Because God wants it to be that way". Check your brains at the door and grab a book full of fairy tails before you sit down. Critical thought has little place in religion. In all honesty, the whole debate over ‘is there proof of god’ (your choice of deity, there are many to choose from) strikes me as being like arguing over what Gandalf the White would have done at the battle of Waterloo. You see my point? Mixing fantasy with reality makes for a good read but hardly helps you understand how things work.
