Best Science Fair Project EVER

I wish I was making this up. See this link and go down to the 2nd-place Middle School Level.

For those of you who are too lazy and don't want to go see the joy and bad science that is the "Creation Science Fair," here's the excerpted part that made me spray Mountain Dew all over my monitor:

2nd Place: "Women Were Designed For Homemaking"

Jonathan Goode (grade 7) applied findings from many fields of science to support his conclusion that God designed women for homemaking: physics shows that women have a lower center of gravity than men, making them more suited to carrying groceries and laundry baskets; biology shows that women were designed to carry un-born babies in their wombs and to feed born babies milk, making them the natural choice for child rearing; social sciences show that the wages for women workers are lower than for normal workers, meaning that they are unable to work as well and thus earn equal pay; and exegetics shows that God created Eve as a companion for Adam, not as a co-worker.
