RE: Kent Hovind's Doctoral Dissertation
This document was ostensibly written in 1991, so I think it's fair to cut him a break on the typewriter and the typing errors.

That said, it reads like the "Manifesto for the Stupid". This thing has been floating around the internet for a long time and has been pretty thoroughly debunked. I'm kind of surprised to see it make an appearance here in 2010, but thank you all for the trip down memory lane. I'm now dreaming of a time when my biggest challenge in life was to pay my phone bill on time. Not my cell phone, mind you, as we didn't have them way back in 1991, but my land line.

Ahhhhh, the memories.......

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost

RE: Kent Hovind's Doctoral Dissertation
He says his ideas are nothing new but the combined input of members of the faith over the last couple hundred years.... so from that I assume the next few chapters should be preaching of death and war against the non-believing, and that science books should be burned.

EDIT:
"evolution is a religion, not a science - it has no empirical evidence to back it up and cant be a part of science"
"whatever an expert is."
Dx< how can you be so stupid?!

Hey brother christian, with your high and mighty errand, your actions speak so loud, I can't hear a word you're saying.

"This machine kills fascists..."

"Well this machine kills commies!"

Looks to me like the guy is just trying to make a fast buck, with all the seminars etc.
Just like everyone else in the biz.

I've been doing checks across the interwebz for all the quotes hes mined, most of which seem to be things he heard from a creationist site and said "hey it proves i'm right Big Grin"

when I showed this dissertation to my wife who works as a university secretary she laughed! Apart from the obvious problems such as starting with 'hello ' it is obviously a pilot stuff copied from other websites and books and I'm not sure that the references at the end attributed also it might also be plagiarism. In any event it would not even done as a first-year essay on the university where my wife works.

However I take the point about making money -- is obviously an entertaining speaker for those that like that sort of thing and is a lot of money to be made in public speaking to large audiences such as YouTube shows him speaking at. What puzzles me is why people would want to pay money to hear him. I suppose people like to be told what they already think so as to help reinforce their beliefs -- it saves having to think after all!

That explains everything... Iceland is going to become the next communist fortress.

What book are you referring to?

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

I was referring to the dissertation, wrong term? probably...
anyway communism is based on socialism, and unless you're someone who doesn't believe in equal rights to everyone than you may agree communism isn't even that bad an idea, its just how its been executed by certain groups.
