Well, I thought it had to do with his IRS problems, but I guess I was wrong.

It turns out that like when Homer Simpson was Mr. X, Kent knew too much!

The Illuminati wanted to shut him up! It makes too much sense!


Gosh, the only thing nuttier than Kent Hovind are his devout followers!

I imagine he continues to natter on prison– I’m sorry, I mean Uncle Obama’s Gulag for Christians!

And I can’t imagine any worse punishment than being forced to be Kent’s cellmate.

That might even be against the constitutional provision against cruel and unusual punishment.

Just kidding! It’s “Dr” Kent Hovind talking about living dinosaurs (and no, he’s not talking about birds!)


And thinks there were grizzly bears in Georgia.

This is the best part of his most moonbattish lectures, “Dinosaurs and the Bible” :


This is where he starts talking about dragons!

And once again, he thinks that grizzly bears lived in the Eastern US.

From Potholer54:


Hovind’s attempt at moving the goalposts has backfired.

NB:  Alaska rabbits are domesticated European rabbits that were developed in Germany!

1. He admits creationism is a religion.

2. He thinks evolution is a religion that says butterflies turn into horses, which it is not.

3. He think kangaroo fossils have been found in Africa, which they have not.

This is the best one I’ve ever seen.

Robert Trivers is a Professor of Anthropology and Biological Sciences at Rutgers, who holds a Ph.D. from Harvard, and this is the closest you’ll find to Kent Hovind debating a true, world-class expert in the field. Most won’t waste their time, but I don’t think he’s wasting his time here at all.

Hovind is so full of crap, and his followers are so gullible that they can’t see that this is the big take-down.

This is a big glass of shut-up juice.

“I don’t want to introduce too much science into this revival meeting.”

The Loch Ness monster is the best evidence for creationism. If only the Loch Ness monster existed, he might have something! Too bad it was proven to be nothing more than a photo of a model dinosaur on a toy submarine.


For fun, everyone should watch his lecture called “Dinosaurs and the Bible.”  It  is amazing all the zany theories he promotes.

Now Kent Hovind wouldn’t misrepresent things, would he?

Okay. Here’s the real story on the first horse being a hyrax.

The animal was originally called the Hyracotherium, which does mean “Hyrax-like beast.” Richard Owen did think it was a relative of the hyrax, and that’s where  Ol’ Kent Hovind got that idea. At one time, we called these animals Eohippus, the dawn horse, but because the original name was Hyracotherium, we’ve gone back to that name.

However, Othniel Marsh realized that it was actually primitive ancestor of the horse when he found a full skeleton in 1876.

We now call this species Eohippus or “Dawn horse,” because we recognized that it was actually the first known horse to have ever existed. It is not a hyrax. Hyraxes are more closely related to elephants and sirens than to horses.

Dawn horse was actually quite a bit larger than it is commonly portrayed. It stood 14 inches at the shoulder and weighed about 50 pounds, so it was primitive, four-toed horse built along a basset hound’s frame. Modern hyraxes are nowhere near that size.

Kent Hovind claims the confusion was the other way around:  The dawn horse was mistakenly claimed to be a horse and now we know it to be a hyrax.

He reverses the story to give his own half-baked theories credence. My guess is the Tulsa Zoo took down that display to shut these people up. And when they did shut up, they put it back up.

The level of Kent’s analysis comes down to one line: “If I get buried on top of a hamster, does that prove he’s my grandpa?”

And then the evolution of silverware.


This animal is now thought to be the basal odd-toed ungulate (a Palaeothere), and may be the ancestor of the horses, the tapirs, and the rhinos, too. Its exact relationship to these modern animals is not clear, but it is not a hyrax at all.

And if the horse didn’t evolve from the Hyracothere, it evolved from something very similar to it.
