Bugs don't have nostrils. Bugs breath through their skin through sphericals. I don't think you could even demonstrate, believe it or not, I don't think you could demonstrate bugs are alive!

Bugs move. Bugs eat. Bugs reproduce. Bugs are made up from eukaryotic cells. Bugs are alive.

bugs move, eat, breathe, and reproduce. Sounds pretty alive to me.

Just goes to show that Kent really hasn't ever passed a science class, and also that he lacks even the tiniest drop of common sense.

You're a fucktard, aren't you Kent?

"I don't think you could even demonstrate, believe it or not, I don't think you could demonstrate bugs are alive!"

You admit they have one of the mandatory qualities to be defined as "alive" yet you aren't sure if they are. Your stay in the clink isn't improving your intellectual faculties any Ken.

Oh, come on, you're not even trying anymore, Hovind. I'd expect this from supersport. Seriously.

10/16/2008 2:17:19 AM


I don't think

You don't say?

10/16/2008 2:20:37 AM

There are clear conditions that an organism has to fullfill to be considered alive. Bugs fullfill them. End of story.

We know that Kent Hovind breathes, but is he really alive?

Oh, and Kents prison husband, Burt Two-tooth says Hi!

10/16/2008 2:22:55 AM



Oh. What's up, Kent? <nudge-wink>

Angry Archeologist

WOW! Now that is impressive.

10/16/2008 2:29:01 AM


...believe it or not, I don't think you could demonstrate bugs are alive!

Except of course, for the 7 criteria used for determining whether or not a thing/creature is alive.

10/16/2008 2:29:09 AM


Sphericals? I'm sure you mean spiracles. Which are, you know, kind of the same thing except for how they're completely different. And spiracles are actual openings. They don't breathe "through their skin".

Spiracles allow an inflow of air which feeds oxygen, by way of the trachea, to the insects' tissue. This isn't so different from the mammalian body, which intakes air to get oxygen which is carried to tissue by the blood. So, you know, you'd need to have a pretty fucked up definition of 'alive' to make that claim based on that difference.

By the way, I never even took biology at high school and even I know that. Just goes to show how useful your fake credentials aren't.

Allegory for Jesus

Kent Hovind has a Ph.D. in what now?

10/16/2008 2:35:08 AM


Insects are systems that attempt to stay out of equilibrium with their surroundings.

10/16/2008 2:37:57 AM


WHAT THE FUCK!? He admits that they do breath, albeit in a different way and then says we can't prove bugs are alive. Did he even read the second sentence before writing the third?

10/16/2008 3:18:28 AM

If bugs aren't alive than surely he won't mind sharing his cell with some "non-living" Funnel web spiders or other such critters...

Maybe the other bugs in Kent's 6'x 8' world aren't alive.

You don't say?"

Let's take the characteristics of life:

Bugs are organized: They are made up of organsm which in turn are made from cells.

Bugs acquire materials and energy: Bugs look for food and eat it.

Bugs reproduce: I don't even need to answer this.

Bugs respond to stimuli: They well try to avoid being killed by a flyswatter, among other things.

Bugs are homeostatic: They mantain a relatively constant internal environment..

Bugs grow and develop: Maggots turn into flies, caterpillars into butterflies.

Bugs are adapted to their environment: Bugs are able to survive.

Therefore, bugs are alive.

Uh oh. Looks like we've had a jail break.

10/16/2008 4:30:50 AM


I don't think you could demonstrate bugs are alive!

What the fuck?

10/16/2008 4:33:49 AM


I have... I have no words for how painfully stupid this is. I feel dumber for having read it.

10/16/2008 4:47:09 AM


The Ant has FOUR noses, Mr Hovind.
How much time have you left to serve?

Did Kent just say that bugs are not alive? And this guy calls himself a science teacher.

10/16/2008 5:50:58 AM


Postings like these perfectly prove that Hovind would never have gotten a degree from a real accredited university.
Looks like using a diploma mill was the only way for him to get a degree (and I assume he know this as well ;) )
