Lake County Fair - click for their website
The 2016 fair - Walt Sivertsen was ready to explain the game that demonstrated the impossibility of even a protein ever happening by chance!

July 26-30, 2017

Lake County Fair

with Lake County Fair

MCF's booth is in the Commercial Building. We're focusing this year on the Mt. St. Helens eruptions and dinosaurs!

The volcanic eruptions in 1980 and 1986 were called "God's gift to creationists." They were both major disasters for the region, and air quality suffered for hundreds of miles around. The "gift" was in demonstrating how quickly geological features, such as "thousands/millions of years" worth of sedimentation and canyon creation took almost no time at all, even carving through solid existing rock, and in demonstrating the forces that created the 27 layers of fossil forest at Yellowstone.

Dinosaurs -- when did they live? When did they disappear? Have people actually seen them? ARE there any left? Are they "hopping around your bird feeder?" We have three posters dealing with dinosaurs, and if you'll fill out a "quiz" using the "open poster" info, we have a gift for you!

There will be drawings for prizes; including, for anyone who signs up for our email list, tickets to the Ark Encounter in Kentucky, the life-sized replica of Noah's Ark!

Location: 1060 E. Peterson Road, Grayslake, Illinois

There is a cost to get into the Fair. See this page.  Back to top

The Code Breakers: Perspective from the Inside of the Cell

with Lainna Callentine, M.D. of SciExperience.com, and D.R. Callentine, M.S. Computer Engineering

Come hear from the perspectives of a physician and an electrical engineer the amazing workings of DNA, the genetic code. Did the 3 billion base-pairs of code that made you, evolve by chance, or are you truly fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving God?

Lainna Callentine is a pediatrician, home-schooling mom, author of several books on the human body, and founder of SciExperience. Her hands-on labs have been very popular at the Illinois Christian Home Educators Conferences. D.R. is an electrical engineer. He completed his Master’s in Computer Engineering at Syracuse University as a General Electrical Aerospace Engineer Scholar.

The Latest on Orphan Genes and What They Mean for Darwin's Tree of Life

with Dr. Paul Nelson

The concept of our common descent via the Last Universal Common Ancestor is examined. New revelations about the genetic code and data mining for homology leave the evolutionary paradigm of origins with many unanswerable questions. The data supports intelligent design and a loving Intelligent Designer Who created human beings after His own image.

This presentation may get a bit technical.
