If this is a generalization of all Christians, it is so very wrong. If he understood, that there are Christians who haven't lost an ounce of education, imagination and thinking because of their beliefs, good for him, although he sure made it hard for us to see that with this quote of him...
Ah ok. How about people like Kirk Cameron? Ray Comfort? You see you have obviously completely missed the entire point of the quote.
People like Da Vinci and Kepler understood what EVIDENCE is. They actually changed their view depending on what the evidence gave them. People like Kirk Cameron are PROUD of the fact that they do not understand the arguments against them, and deliberately try to promote ignorance.
Saying that, it wouldn't surprise me to find that you agree with everything they say.
You expect me to go through an hour and a half long video to prove you wrong?
I do find it absolutely hilarious that you think Kent Hovind uses facts to back up his claims though.
Not even the young earth organisations like "Answers in Genesis" agree with him. Indeed AiG criticized Hovind for "persistently using discredited or false arguments" and said Hovind's claims are "self-refuting".
Hovind has actually tried telling people that "evolutionists believe humans came from rocks", which simply proves that he has absolutely NO understanding of evolution at all. None.
You are taking the word of a person that is CURRENTLY serving a ten year prison sentence for fraud, over the word of the entire accredited scientific community, and again you expect me to take you seriously? Really?
You know he was convicted of more than 50 federal counts right?
Kent Hovind is in fact the perfect example for the quote shown above, not only is he completely ignorant of everything he debates against, he is PROUD of that ignorance.
I do find it absolutely hilarious that you dismiss Kent Hovind's factuality without investigating it. And he does use a lot of scientific, archeological facts. This dismissiveness reveals that you don't really care for facts, or truth, or reality. You care for your ideology that you associate with, and just defend it tooth and nails, like a good 12century catholic priest would.
Did you read what I put? I didn't even use atheist sources, I used full on Christian Creationists. And you still think he is factually accurate? I did "investigate it" I just didn't watch that particular video. I obviously know more about Hovind than you do, and frankly the fact that you think he is a rational and logical person is quite disturbing. I have seen some of his arguments, I even looked him up after finishing writing to you. He speaks in complete gibberish.
You say that I am the person who did no investigating, and yet you continue to prefer the word of someone that is CURRENTLY convicted of FRAUD, over the scientific community. Are you really that stupid?
I tell you what how about we play a game, why don't YOU watch it again, post the facts and "truth" for me here, and then I'll prove it either false or inapplicable.
