Our favorite snake oil salesman will be offering a 2-day seminar in Dover next month.  One can only wonder at how the good doctor was able to shoehorn this engagement into his busy schedule of speaking "over 700 times each year in public and private schools, universities and churches."

Repent America to Bring Creation Seminar to Dover Area High School; Evolutionists Lay Low

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 2 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Repent America (RA), a Philadelphia-based evangelistic organization, is bringing a creation seminar to the Dover Area High School next month, featuring internationally known creationist Dr. Kent Hovind.

The Dover Area School District became known for its support of intelligent design by ensuring that students were informed that evolution is “not a fact.” However, a federal judge ruled the practice unconstitutional because of the possibility that students might come to the conclusion that the intelligent designer is the God of the Bible. In addition, all of the intelligent design school board members were voted out this past election, adding to the disaster in Dover.

“The school board has been taken over by evolutionists who refuse to continue the legal battle for truth, and who once again are teaching students the lie of evolution as fact,” stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. “We must not abandon the schoolchildren of America in indoctrination chambers, but fight for the truth to be presented to those trapped inside its walls. Repent America is coming to Dover Area High School to do just that,” Marcavage continued.

Dr. Kent Hovind, who is considered one of the foremost authorities on science and the Bible, will be the event’s guest speaker. The former high school science teacher turned evangelist speaks over 700 times each year in public and private schools, universities and churches. He has debated evolutionists at many universities across the country and is dedicated to the proclamation of factual, scientific evidence supporting the Biblical record of creation and history of the world.

“Kent Hovind’s exciting, fact-filled presentations are extremely informative and highly educational, which will impact the lives of all those who attend,” Marcavage stated. “Christians will be strengthened in their faith while the most devout evolutionists will sit up and take notice,” he continued.

“The event was initially scheduled to be conducted in a debate format, but every evolutionist we contacted so far has refused to participate,” Marcavage continued. “Evolutionists lay low when they actually have to defend their beliefs, but when the floor is only open to them they will do whatever they can to tell fables,” he concluded.

The two-day seminar will be held in the auditorium of the Dover Area High School on Friday, March 17 at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 18 at 10:30 a.m. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

I hear he can also levitate, cure diseases with the touch of his hand, helped the US design the atomic bomb, and single-handedly wrestled John Wilkes Booth to the ground when the police had him cornered. Also, he can transcend space and time, and some claim he created Jupiter's moons.

Oh yes, and he once killed an allosaurus with his bare hands.

Could he be an "Inteligent Designer"?
Completely not supernatural, but with a skill-set similar to God? :D

But Rimmer had some positive qualities, and a sense of shame. Hovind is sort of the distilled essence of what gives religion, creationism, and sociopath-ism a bad rap.

 Are there WORSE people in the U.S.A. (who don't openly advocate violence in seeking their ends)?

Maybe Pat Robertson, although i think he does occasionally advocate violence, at least of the godly retribution kind.

Pat is very, very bad, but not really comparable to someone like Hovind.  He's only more dangerous, due to having a much larger power base.

For those who haven't seen it, Kent Hovind's appearance on "Da Ali G Show":

Best moment:  A lingering shot of Hovind's stunned face as Ali G accuses him of failing to flush the backstage toilet.

And, as I recall, Arnold Rimmer was an atheist.  Even though -- or perhaps because -- his parents were Seventh-Day-Advent-Hoppists.  Old Arnie wouldn't have been completely ID-resistant though; he'd have been open to the "space aliens" hypothesis.

As for Ace Rimmer, he had a sense of humor.  (What a guy!) You think Hovind's tough because he dispatched an allosaurus with his bare hands?  Well, Ace once killed two Nazis with a single alligator!

Will have to download the Hovind-Ali G extravaganza ....
