Congratulations to the winners of this year's science fair at Pawleys Island Christian Academy in South Carolina. The school expects excellence from its students, and they have apparently met that expectation.

According to this account in the Georgetown Times:
Brian Benson, an eighth-grade student who won first place in the Life Science/Biology category for his project “Creation Wins!!!,” says he disproved part of the theory of evolution. Using a rolled-up paper towel suspended between two glasses of water with Epsom Salts, the paper towel formed stalactites. He states that the theory that they take millions of years to develop is incorrect.

“Scientists say it takes millions of years to form stalactites,” Benson said. “However, in only a couple of hours, I have formed stalactites just by using paper towel and Epsom Salts.”
Finally, proof that we did not evolve from stalactites.

We evolved from stalagmites. Doesn't this kid know anything about science?

This is a f---ing joke, right?

Well, fine. But it still doesn't explain Sea Monkeys, dammit.

Sea Monkeys evolved from Land Monkeys.

Shame on this kid's teachers for allowing such an awful leap in logic to win first prize.
