If by \"scientist\" you mean convicted criminal, then ok...

I think it is outstandingly appropriate that this was posted on the date it was:

April Fool's Day.

Priceless!

Kent Hovind is a scientist in the same way that Osama bin Laden is a pacifist.

I nominate this for an: ...AND? Award

Scientist? With a degree bought from a diploma mill operating out of a house in Colorado?!

Hovind is a brain-dead fuckwit.

How can someone be a scientist while ignoring things like evidence and not understanding the meaning of "theory"?

I just love the name of his degree. He has a PhD in frigging Christian Science.

Isn't that like getting a degree in Amish Computer Sciences?

Kent Hovind is not a scientist. Kent Hovind is a convicted tax fraud, with a degree from a degree mill in Nowheresville, who has never taken an actual university level science course.

I don't mean to sound immature, but... oh, what the hell. LOLOLOLOLOOOLOLOLOLOOLLOOOLLL NOOBLET FAG ROFL XDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXDXXDXDXDDDDDXDDDXDXDXDX!!!!!!111111111111

Seriously, though, does anyone actually take Hovind seriously? Aging being caused by the sun xraying us, an ice dome around the Earth, chameleons becoming dinosaurs if they live long enough?

Kent Hovind is a scientist. Left is right. Up is down. Black is white. Day is night. War is peace. Misery is happiness. Stupidity is genius.

Saying Kent Hovind is a scientist is the equivalent of saying Spyro is a S.E.E.S. member.

Oh no! He mentioned "Scientist" and a name! Scatter, fellow unbelievers! Scatter in fear and terror!

Justanotheratheist

Even the use of CAPS LOCK makes Hovind no more of a scientist than I am Miss World.

Thanks for the laugh, though. You livened up my Sunday morning no end.

I'm still waiting for you to make me look silly. Guess I'll be kept waiting, as that was written 7,5 years ago...

I have looked Kent Hovind up, and I found not a smidgen, not one iota of evidence for him being a scientist.
In Europe, I'd guess more people know him as "that fundie who got himself landed in jail for tax-fraud", than as "that fundie 'scientist'".
Plus, very few of us (among the few who actually know he exist, that is) can tell a difference between Kent Hovind and Ken Ham.

Ham's a nutbar
and he won't support Hovind's claims

They both use debunked claims from 60 years ago

Read his Ph.D thesis. It's a hoot.

>>I am about to make you look silly---be warned.<<

I have no objections to looking silly. I do object to mis-representations of reality.

Kent Hovind is a very successful scam-artist. Landing himself in jail for tax-fraud didn't even open the eyes of his followers, they probably still send him money.

He owed the IRS About 450,000 dollars in unpaid employee payroll taxes and incidental taxes. I can't do the math without the tax rates and particulars but I'd say it's pretty safe to assume he scammed at least 3 million dollars off stupid creationists needing someone to support their fantasy. This would only be on money that they discovered upon investigation, probably a lot more they couldn't find.

Referring to this link:

http://www.noanswersingenesis.org.au/bartelt_dissertation_on_hovind_thesis.htm

This 'thesis' contains NO original research and NO actual accepted scientific content. It would not be accepted as a Baccalaureus dissertation at any reputable university, still less as a Magister or Doctoral thesis.

Since obtaining this worthless qualification, Ken Hovind has performed NO scientific experiment nor any form of scientific research. On what factual data do you base the statement that he is any kind of scientist?
