Morden Outreach 2018

August 24 @ 10:00 am - August 26 @ 5:30 pm

This will be our seventh year doing Outreach at the Morden Corn and Apple Festival, and some people ask why we keep going back. To understand that, people must experience the festival for themselves.

On one hand, we have the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre’s booth, representing a world-class centre for geology and marine paleontology in Manitoba; the centre has a working lab and museum where scientists and volunteers try to uncover the secrets of the past using the best methods science has to offer. At the other end of the spectrum, Morden seems to also be the center of Biblical Young Earth Creationism and the pseudoscience of Intelligent Design. One doesn’t have to walk far to find the 17-foot trailer distributing free publications touting the ‘truth’ and ‘facts’ of religiously-based Intelligent Design, such as that the earth is 6 to 10,000 years old, Neanderthal man was just a human with a bone disease, and (one of our favorites) fossilization can happen in less than 100 years. At some festivals there have been multiple booths supporting creationism. And we can’t forget the Bikers for Christ with their knife sharpening booth. 

For those who appreciate that knowledge and understanding will always be better than believing through faith, Morden offers a unique experience. It is a festival that sorely needs reason, rationality, and Humanism, if only for balance. 

So come visit us in our booth at the Morden Corn and Apple Festival for a conversation worth having.  
We’ll be there Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 10 PM, and Sunday from 11 AM to 5:30 PM. 

If you’re a HAAM member, consider volunteering at the booth for what will be an interesting and rewarding experience.

Location: Our booth will be on the south side of Stephen Street, about halfway between Nelson and 9th.
