Hovind Prison Update

On Monday, a
new post
appeared on Kent Hovind’s weblog, describing life in jail. As you might expect, he plays the Christian persecution card. He also has a list of reasons God allowed him to be sent to jail. Oddly enough, neither “I’m guilty” nor “there are no gods” is on the list.

He also writes,

If the case is not reversed, I face anywhere from parole to 7 to 12 years.

This is a man who believes that the Earth is 6000 years old when in fact it’s 4.5 billion years old. So presumably that means that he’s looking at between 5.25 and 9 million years in prison.

    This is for all of the idiots that keep trying to be the one who knows everything about the bible and keep saying that Hovind is in trouble because of religion, you have no right ! I have known this man since his kid days. His parents were good people, he has known that if you make any money you pay taxes, he has just gotten so arrogent he thinks he can convince these poor people who are convinced that he is your friend, that he is such a good man, open your eyes and look at what he has done to his sister, his brothers, my god to his own wife, he knew this was going to happen, his brother even tried to give him money to pay them a long time ago, he hasn”t paid a tax in at least 12 years. His wife even tried to get on public health coverage, doesn’t taxs cover this so there is no child left without?

    You really dont know what you are talking about because he really thought he was tax exempt. After he was told he wasn’t he tried asking why but got no reply from the IRS. He even said he would pay the full amount to the judge but got no response. Why would you give someone 10 years when they are willing to pay the fine and when the person obviously doesn’t deserve to go to prison. This is definitely just a way to shut him up. But it wont work it doesn’t work that way when a person has God on their side

      You are so obviously delusional and can’t see old Hovie for what he is, which is namely an arrogant, lying braggart and general, overall dick-head. How can ANYONE possibly believe that all of the university-educated scientists, who are specialised in their respective fields, are wrong, and that Hovind with his high school education and a mail order ‘degree’ could know morte than them? He is nothing more than a con-man and a charlitan.

    Wow, one thing that always surprise’s me is the hate that some people that don’t believe in god and they use that hate agenst anyone who stands up for him as well and they even make pointless statements that have no grounds its just all hate babble, what a sad state too live in, anyways im not too intrested in anyone who likes too bash ignorantly at people, i honestly think its a waste of time and it says more about thoughs people then anyone there talking about and we all know who they are too, shows how well there judgement is and how flawed it must be, easy enough too change that though, just simply cut it out.

    Anyways kent hovind is by no means a mad man or a fool, people make mistakes and other people can exploit them but too me thats a very weak thing too do, its not like he was cought with a bloody knife and a body but there are alot of people that wanna convict him in the same light because of what he stands for, now i have listened too alot of what he has to say about creation and sorry fokes he makes good points and yes his science is good as well (i know something of science myself) i just find it funny that the authority’s were aware of his all these mistakes he was making for a long time i mean years and did nothing until they got a large number of charges, who waits years too charge someone? anyone can make mistakes on there tax’s why wait until they can be sent too prison for 10 years? i think they might have been setting him up for a fall by gathering charges for a long period of time, sure they got excuses by who wouldn’t if this was true, its fishy i tell yeah and its really difficult finding his side of the story aside of simple 2 or 3 word statements that can be taken out of context really easy, i think it was a personal thing, some (well alot) of people don’t like him or what he stands for so gathering these charges together would be a case of discrimination, saying he is a flight risk or a danger too the community shows how they disregarded his character which can be defined so easy by 1000’s of people who know him, there are rapists and murder’s that don’t get this kinda harsh treatment, this is a man who proclaimed too help others and did! a caring man and look at this negative cold reactions from people, that just tells you about the people saying these cold and hate filled words, remember that.

    And yes im saying he was set up by the authority’s heaping up these charges and saving them over a long period of time in order too put him away for a long time and too make him look bad and try too discredit him and i must say they were aware over this long period of time, i mean if he knew he could be charged he would not be where he is now, if you can say you never made a mistake, an actualy “oppsy” then your a hypocrite saying anything bad about this guy who is well respected by millions and its sad people are not making this simple connection.

    It does not surprise me in the least that something like this would happen too him, i mean he was dishing out the truth (yes he does know what he’s talking about) and yes his statement saying how is situation is similar too job is correct as well easy too see if you read the bible, he’s far from being a quack or anything warped in the least, in fact he is one of the most balanced people i have known.

    There will always be people that put people down christ was put down so was all of the apostles and if you follow christ you too will prosecuted and if there is no mistake that can be added too make you look bad one can be created using lies or false statements that are lies, twisted or just so manipulated with a half truth trying too make them believable.

    http://www.drdino.com here judge the guy for yourself and stop listening too people who just love too abuse and twist facts and make false facts about others.

    jonathan,

    Another broken levee on someone’s stream of consciousness. Let’s try some sandbagging.

    [snip paragraph 1]

    Summary: you spend a large portion of your existence in a state of surprise at things that you are not interested in.
    Is this an example of the idle hands doing the Devil’s work? There’s a wealth of productive, useful things you could turn your idleness to like addressing your flailing grasp of the English language or perhaps your lamentable laziness. The majority of people desiring to engage in debate or even to just make a public statement expend the necessary effort to ensure that their ideas are expressed with some degree of clarity. Or at least punctuation and capital letters.

    [snip paragraph 2-6]

    Summary: Kent Hovind was “set up by the authorities[note spelling]” because said authorities didn’t act sooner to restrain him, while at the same time you yourself who are certain that, “they were aware over this long period of time” did nothing to intervene in the actions of, “one of the most balanced people [you] have known.”
    Way to give your friend a helping hand there, cupcake.

    [snip obligatory Bible quote]

    Maybe you need to consider, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s”[Matthew22:21], and perhaps, “be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ”[Ephesians 6:5-6] before you go casting aspersions on others sparky.

    As for Hovind’s “scientific” presentations they’ve been long debunked; something you would know if you would exert the effort to break the circle of your own flawed logic. Please let us know if you manage this; based upon your above mental meanderings your acceptance of the light of rationality would be a miracle of almost biblical proportions.

    It is rather funny to see uneducated sheep following athiests assume they know a thing about anything regarding the truth about their existence. Always using the evolution theory to back their assumptions as if the evolution theory has even been proved to be the truth.

    Then again how can you expect someone who is so far away from the truth to see the truth… Truth is when something cannot be proven wrong by no other measure… evolution has been proven wrong on all its accounts yet some people involved here think its the truth.

    Well i guess thats what happens when someone beklieves they were an ape they act like one

    By the way regarding the tax laws i suggest you watch America Freedom to Fascism before condemning a person to prison when you actually know nothing about the topic.

    very amusing perhaps if you seeked the answers you will find them…

    If one purges the Judaism of the Prophets and Christianity as Jesus Christ taught it of all subsequent additions, especially those of the priests, one is left with a teaching which is capable of curing all the social ills of humanity. Albert Einstein

    Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. (Luke 21:10)

    There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. (Luke 21:11)

    But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. (Luke 21:12)

    You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. (Luke 21:16)

    When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. (Luke 21:20)

    Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. (Luke 21:24)

    On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. (Luke 21:25)

    There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. (Luke 21:25)

    No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (Matthew 26:34)

    Concerning prophetic accuracy, Old Testament passages give more than 50 prophecies of the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; and every prophecy (written over 400 years before His birth) came true.

    You get a point for using something approximating paragraphs. Unfortunately, you get points taken off for spelling, punctuation, grammar, rambling style, and violation of the Star Trek Rule. And you lose a few more points for repeating arguments that weren’t convincing the first five hundred times and haven’t improved with time. So about average for a Hovindite.

Their are sick perverted people out there producing child porn and adult porn. Why are they walking free. The bible say’s in the last days people will call good evil and evil good. Whether the earth has been here two years or billions of years. Then God is Even greater then our feeble minds can imagine. Kent can still preach and has a voice even from prison. People in Prison will be saved because God is there with him. Will you atheist be heard from hell, no it will be too late…. That will be for billions and billions of years. Lissette

    To whoever dont believe I have this to say. I am not some genius who claims to know more then the other guy. I do know this. I come from an abusive home where I lost my father My mother addicted to men. I joined the crip gang and have committed evry sin under the sun. In my heart I know I was wrong. What constitutes wrong? If I am from an animal or whatever TRhen When i attack or bite then I am only doing what is natural. Listen I would have no problem grabbing one of you nerds by the neck and choking you, but someting in this past year has changed me. I am a new person. I am finally happy and look forward to life. I found forgiveness in my life and resist all urges to do wrong with ease now. The thing that happen to me was my acceptance of Christ. God does exist and you all know it. I know you will tell yourself you don’t believe in him, but you do or you wouldn’t be so caught up in him. I know you will beat around the bush, but why do you evolutionists get so mad about are theory, if thats all we got. All you got is a theory. Which no matter way you cut it Creation is on top. We get mad because we are humans, who are in love with are theory. Are you in love with Darwin? Just say yes and get tears in your eyes when you think of all the molecules rearanging to make you. You can’t. Why can A human get all teary eyed when thinking of God. And if you give a dumb answer then what is that saying about you. If you are so smart and serious about knowing the truth then sit down FACE to FACE and talk it out with different people. Not preachers necessarily but normal people who have really experienced God. I went to public school all my life so let me tell you how I have had to sit there and hear how I came from monkeys. I had a choice listen about God from people who know nothing about him or listen to teachers and bioligist tell me about evolution. I chose God why? Because he exist!!!
    I leave you with this(literally leave because i don’t participate in blogging i am to busy) For those who don’t believe the Bible, as we believe it, says there will be a great war (armeggedon), where Christ will come back and the soldiers of Christ will be with him (that will be me) It says the blood of the unbelievers and sinners will be up to the neck of Jesus’s horse. I look forward to meeting you in the valley of jezreel on the plains of meggido! Oh I know “what a mean Jesus” well go cry about it because all your molecules are going to be reaaranged when we finally meet. You could look me in my blue eyes and beg for mercy but it will be too late.
    I shouldn’t have got so mean but you can call me peter choppin ears off when it comes to defending the LORD.

    If it’s of any significance much of the details of biology and evolution that are discussed here send me running for books and Google for definitions and it’s invaluable as a learning experience.

    I’d say that, just like most things of worth, obtaining knowledge is hard and frequently the value of it is not immediately apparent. Studying biology is no exception. If it were easy there wouldn’t be so many unanswered questions. In reading past the invective in your original posts it’s clear you aren’t stupid. You can work a fair turn of phrase, you ran your territory and survived. Stupid people don’t make it through that.
