Skip to comments.Creationist lecturer posits Adam, Eve and dinosaurs (Kent Hovind alert)
Posted on 05/18/2006 11:15:07 AM PDT by DaveLoneRanger
One of the nations most popular and controversial proponents of creation science is coming to Morgan County.
Dr. Kent Hovind, a former high school science teacher and the founder of Creation Science Evangelism ministries, will address creationisms religious and scientific origins. Hovinds seminar is sponsored by the Morgan County Baptist Association, and Shiloh Baptist Church Youth Pastor Paul Miller said evolutions origins are based on Satan, not science.
"The very beginning of the Bible says in the beginning God created," said Paul Miller, youth pastor at Shiloh Baptist Church. "Throughout history, the devil has had a well-thought-out strategy to attack the word of God. Through what I call modern and postmodern times, the devil has orchestrated this thing such that people think we evolved."
Hovind posits that evolution has been consistently disproven by science, a claim hes willing to put money on. He has pledged $250,000 to anyone who can provide empirical evidence of evolution. Hovind said only three people have taken him up on his offer, and none walked away with the money.
Hovinds description of evolution is as follows: time, space and matter came into existence independent of God. Planets and stars formed. Early life forms reproduced, and major changes occurred between these life forms. According to Hovind, many of evolutions supporters dont understand the theory.
"They think any kind of change at all is evolution," Hovind said. "Theyll point out that dogs and wolves have a common ancestor, and I would agree. Thats called microevolution, and there is no argument about that. Now does that mean that dogs and bananas have a common ancestor?"
Hovind, who calls himself Dr. Dino, also believes that Earth is only 6,000 years old and that dinosaurs and humans once coexisted.
Hovind said reptiles known as dinosaurs were actually called dragons by early man, and most of these creatures were hunted and killed. Some, like the Loch Ness Monster, remain, he said.
Bringing Hovind to Morgan County was a matter of faith for Miller.
"God just laid it on my heart to expose the lies of evolution," Miller said. "We both sense apathy among Gods people regarding Gods word, especially creation. We need to stand on the word of God."
Although Hovinds seminar will touch on evolutions alleged scientific failings, Miller said he ultimately hoped the lectures would touch attendees minds and hearts.
"The goal would be that through the discovery of Gods creation, folks would come to know the Lord Jesus Christ," Miller said. "We dont want to hide the fact that thats our goal."
Hovinds seminars will be held Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the Morgan County High School auditorium. Admission is free. He will also speak during Shiloh Baptist Churchs 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. services on Sunday. He will also answer questions in the churchs sanctuary at 9:45 a.m.

There was an expedition that was done to the Congo by some Young-Earth group to try and find Mokele Mbembe (a Lochness type thing), since by showing it exists they would prove people lived with dinosaurs.
It is a shame that the IDers have made this an Atheist vs Believers kind of thing, I think that was very dishonest of them. On the other hand, the left has been making it a Evolutionist vs Morons thing, oh well, it all comes down to ad hominem these days...
Dave, the Loch Ness monster is a fairy tale. Do you believe in the Easter Bunny?
He is confusing his belief with scientific evidence.
I still believe in Santa....
Did you read what I wrote? I never said I believed in Nessie (we're on a first-name basis, she and I).
Do I believe that we've found conclusive evidence of living dinosaur descendents, no. Do I believe that it's completely impossible that dinosaurs might still lurk somewhere on the globe? It would surprise me, but not shock me. Reports such as "mekele membe" (river-blocker) and other such things make me wonder. Creationism is not contingent to such ideas, but it would be more in line with creationist ideas than evolutionary ones. We found an entire colony of animals that were heretofore undiscovered; tree-hoping kangaroos mate? Obviously, we haven't explored the entire globe yet to say for sure that none exist.
Oh no, no, not at ALL.
What did it look like...can you provide proof?
Not confusing, blending. It's only forbidden for creationists, though. People who believe in evolution, a framework with foundations in or correlations with naturalism/humanism/atheism, are perfectly welcome.
I have living evidence of dinosaur descendants in my house: two Jardine's parrots. They're little T-rexes with feathers. When they're cranky and hungry, the resemblance is uncanny.
So did dinosaurs go extinct, or did they evolve into birds? And what evidence do we have of that besides some similarities in physical features? We cannot observe something that allegedly happened millions of years before we were born, much less our human ancestors. We can only infer from evidence, which is sketchy at best.
Evolve a sense of humor.
The Loch Ness monster...
Looks like man and dinosours lived together. Maybe even used them.
"Hovind, who calls himself Dr. Dino, also believes that Earth is only 6,000 years old and that dinosaurs and humans once coexisted."
This man is 100% correct.
This guy is a breath of fresh air next to the liberals and democrats.
Just curious, when do the Young Earthers believe the first humans migrated to the Americas?
OK. So what do these images prove?
That is only one of dozens of dicpictions of dinosaurs with men in ancient artifacts and drawings.
The pallate of king Narmer of egypt is another famous one.
Then there are those imfamous dino footprints and human footprints in texas -- people in the eighties discreted those has being fake and in the 90's a dig was allow and more dino prints were uncovered and another set of human prints were found as well.
There are coal beds that are 3000 and five thousand years old with over a hundred years of reporting and photos of human artifacts mixed in the coal.
Those who are curious can view hundreds of photos of these finds and artifacts and the orginal articles printed all online.
There is a cool book call the names of God about boulders in the US southwest and in africa and the middle east and other places all written with the same hierglyphs and these mention early bible names and God and other cool things. their website contain photos of these stones and mentions their locations and offers some translations and invites amatures to send in hierglyphs from other stones.
All you need to make an Ica stone, is one of these:
and one of these:
Is that thing supposed to be a triceratops or a stegosaur?
Actually evolution belongs with the fairy tales too...
From this perspective evolution (macro) has more holes in it than swiss cheese.
Just one hole: the sphincter.
From this perspective evolution (macro) has more holes in it than swiss cheese.
You believe what creationscience.com has to say about evolution? Talk about "more holes in it than swiss [sic] cheese." I checked out Chapter 26, the Ape-men section of your link.
Talk about half truths, distortions, and outright omissions!
I guess he's unmoved by carbon dating...
It looked like a single-celled eukaryote.
Come on, you ought to know that.
Some believe that North America was once part of a huge continent that fragmented in the time of Peleg around when the Tower of Babel was built. So they didn't have to migrate, they just drifted thousands of miles away.
Yes, 'tis true.
The shark has not changed in millions of years.
Same as it ever was.
So, is the shark a 'perfect' creature?
Evolution not needed?
That there were creatures of abomination which God destroyed?
We are all the result of the collective efforts of single-celled Eukaryotes.
Our consciousness is the result of the collective conscious of each Eukaryote.
Victoria Vetri. Whatta babe.
The evidence presented at the hearing paints a clear portrait of a tax protester whose sole purpose in seeking relief under chapter 13 was to obtain the release of property seized by the IRS...The IRS records reflect that notwithstanding his earning of income during the years in question, the debtor has failed to file any federal income tax returns for those tax years for which the IRS has filed its proof of claim. Furthermore, the IRS has no record of the debtor ever having filed a federal income tax return. 
Is he still providing tax advice?
Hard to tell who's joking and who's not. This is a claim that evolutionists take seriously. Sometimes, smiles help show what's a joke. You moron. :-)
I have a collection of pre-Columbian ceramics. I'll sell it to you and throw in the Golden Gate bridge free.
In the film, The Great Dinosaur Mystery, a number of dragon accounts are presented:"Dragons" are likely dinosaurs, since the word dinosaur wasn't invented until the 19th century.
* A Sumerian story dating back to 2,000 B.C. or more tells of a hero named Gilgamesh, who, when he went to fell cedars in a remote forest, encountered a huge vicious dragon which he slew, cutting off its head as a trophy.
* When Alexander the Great (c. 330 B.C.) and his soldiers marched into India, they found that the Indians worshipped huge hissing reptiles that they kept in caves.
* China is renowned for its dragon stories, and dragons are prominent on Chinese pottery, embroidery and carvings.
* England has its story of St George, who slew a dragon that lived in a cave.
* There is the story of a 10th century Irishman who wrote of his encounter with what appears to have been a Stegosaurus.
* In the 1500s, a European scientific book, Historia Animalium, listed several animals that we would call dinosaurs, as still alive. A well-known naturalist of the time, Ulysses Aldrovandus, recorded an encounter between a peasant named Baptista and a dragon whose description fits that of the small dinosaur Tanystropheus. The encounter was on 13 May 1572, near Bologna in Italy, and the peasant killed the dragon.
Ouch...is that a horse-hoof to the crotch? OW...
While I agree with you that no one is 100% correct, Kent Hovind is not someone upon whom I place my trust.
A question. Your tagline says you're a natural skeptic. Are you skeptical of what the mainstream scientific community tells you?
Choke* Sputter* Gasp*
So in a society where they had living horses and men and legends of this combo -- and artists create the perfect replica of a horse and man.
And in the case of these men in South America that have a replica of a triceratops with a man saddled on it -- which he could have never seen . . .
So then the dremel man says "Ah it is fake."
Well it was only in 1995 that it was first reported that dinosaurs had skin on the bone plates --no one ever drew them with scale marks
Look again . . .
The "fake" predates 1995 many of these "fakes" were first dug up in the 1920's and 30's and more than a few show skin marks on the bone plates
Neither of us "know" this since it is not observable, repeatable or testable. You're making an educated guess.
