Loch Ness monster fossil discovered
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Buzz Beer
"The fossilised remains of a long-necked, carnivorous sea reptile, which existed 150 million years ago, have been found in Loch Ness.

Creation science fair a big success
OBJECTIVE: Christian Ministries | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
The 2001 Fellowship Baptist Creation Science Fair was apparently a huge success. Elementary, Middle, and High School students produced exhibits like: "My Uncle Is A Man Named Steve (Not A Monkey)," "Pokemon Prove Evolutionism Is False," "Women Were Designed For Homemaking," and "Rocks Can't Evolve, Where Did They Come From Mr. Darwin?" [Presumably, the successive Fairs were just as good, but they don't have comparable webpages.]
