Where are we going?

A recent post on Pharyngula points to what can only be described as a ridiculous parody of science. But I guess such a reaction would only come from a person who has not encountered these things before. Reading the comments on that post led me to this. In short, it's a 'Christian science fair', and schoolchildren are actually awarded for 'experiments' which 'prove' Creationism. What is horrific are the supposed conclusions that they arrive at and are applauded for the same. Here's a sample from that page
  • God designed women for homemaking
  • Dinosaur and Man walked together
  • Using Prayer to Microevolve Latent Antibiotic Resistance in Bacteria
How regressive can this get?
