I like Kansas and Kansans—I’ve got a copy of Oceans of Kansas(amzn/b&n/abe/pwll) on the coffee table at home, I think the paleontological history of the region is wonderful and represents a great opportunity for the residents to learn. And then there’s this news: a major meteorite find, and what do people in the area do? They declare a meteorite festival! How cool and science-friendly is that?
All you have to do is look at the details (and not just that they’ve got some Branson cowboy performing there). In particular, look at all the astronomy events (appropriate) that are sponsored and delivered by members of the Van Andel Creation Research Center (grossly inappropriate…crazy insane levels of inappropriateness). They are showing The Privileged Planet and another film I’d never heard of before, The Milky Way and Beyond…but the fact that it’s from Moody Institute of “Science” damns it without the need to waste time watching it.
You’ll find a collection of biblically based, family oriented videos that help build values and faith in your child, with scientific principles that answer those difficult questions children have about the world around them.
Children will learn all about plant life, geology, and ecology through songs, science games and memorable experiments. Best of all, the lessons are all integrated with the thruths of Scripture.
Our videos examine nature and reveal how the wonders of creation illuminate the majesty of God in a way the the whole family will enjoy.
It’s such a shame. Here’s a great opportunity to educate people and teach them about real wonders of the universe, and the wandering clowns of the creationist sideshow mosey up, squat over it, and dump a reeking, slimy layer of fecal gobbledygook on the proceedings.
