[First, mods, this may be more appropriate for General Questions; given the religious wackiness of the site I’m asking about, however, I’m suspecting the conversation will veer into Great Debates territory, so I’m posting this here. My apologies if this is incorrect.]
Anyway, the site is in-depth enough, including sections mocking “evolutionists,” that it’s hard to believe it’s a joke. At the same time, I notice that they’ve got a whole project devoted to shutting down Landover Baptist Church, whose leader is “a shadowy figure named Chris Harper who apparently has a history of anti-Christian bigotry”; they link to a page “which shows pictures from an Atheist convention that “Reverend” Chris Harper was a key speaker at with other anti-Christian blackguards such as Douglas Adams and Dave “Mephistopheles” Kong!” Again: hee hee hee!
I can’t figure these guys out. Brilliant satirists, or amazing nutjobs?
That’s just freaky. Why would it send some browsers to one place and other browsers to another? Maybe it has something to do with whether cookies are enabled or something? I’ve never heard of such a thing.
My personal favourite is the Middle School winning entry, “Life Doesn’t Come from Non-life”: Patricia Lewis (grade 8) did an experiment to see if life can evolve from non-life. Patricia placed all the non-living ingredients of life - carbon (a charcoal briquet), purified water, and assorted minerals (a multi-vitamin) - into a sealed glass jar. The jar was left undisturbed, being exposed only to sunlight, for three weeks. (Patricia also prayed to God not to do anything miraculous during the course of the experiment, so as not to disqualify the findings.) No life evolved. This shows that life cannot come from non-life through natural processes.
I particularly like the request for non-divine intervention in a science experiment
It must be satire, although if it is, these people sure have a lot of spare time up their sleeves!
