If anyone needs a textbook example of batshit crazy it could be Dr. Kent Hovind, the outspoken Christian Creation literalist who believes the Holy Bible to be the inerrant word of God. He is a textbook example of what happens to a human mind when indoctrinated at an early age.
Apologist Kent Hovind doesn’t care about truth or reality, he has made up his mind that the Holy Bible is the inerrant world of God. He is trying to save your soul, and says this is his goal at the outset of his seminars. The Bible forms the basis he forms his reality, his worldview, science is wrong because the Bible is right. This guy is a text book example of how a religion, like Christianity, possesses the mind.
He is not teaching a science, he states he is not a scientist. He is imitating a scientists and simply stating conjecture as fact. People love it, they clap wildly when he ridicules the scientific method. He created Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola Florida, a hotbed of fundamentalist Christians.
He isn’t trying to teach you science of Creationism, because there is no science of Creationism, nor are there any academics engaged in science, all Creationists are engaged in religion, they have a religious agenda. At the start of his seminars the question is asked, where are you going to go when you die? His theories about the age of the earth or the flood or Adam and Eve are not about science at all, he is possessed by a belief and is trying to memetically infect others.
For instance, he questions the age of the earth, in a two hour seminar he argues that the earth is only a few thousand years old, Mammoths lives with dinosaurs and man. He really believes this and packs the auditoriums with the faithful. He is telling the audience what they want to hear, he is “authority” with his “PhD” telling the faithful they can keep right on believing.
Creation Seminar 1 – Kent Hovind – Age of the Earth
People want to believe. No Creationists is actually engaged in fossil digging, they are simply trying to perpetrate the Bible hoax, and the faithful desperately need someone with a PhD who will tell the rest of science that the theory of Evolution is false.
Dr. Kent Hovind is a show stopper, a smooth fast talking con artist making a living selling what the believing public wants to hear. He is keeping the American tradition of fraud artists alive and well. With the Holy Bible, all kinds of careers and money can be made, God help the man that criticizes the Bible in Amerika.
But if you listen even a short while to the videos posted here, you will immediately doubt that this man has a real Doctorate of Philosophy, so where did “Doctor” Kent Hovind get his degree? Patriot Bible University, a Baptist ministry trailer parked in a gravel pit. No shit. A diploma mill gave him his Bible degree.
