In The Intelligencer, located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, we read Dino Pastor, about Rev. Paul Veit, who “spends his time traveling the country dismissing evolutionary theories.”
If “Dino Pastor” is Veit’s own description, then he seems to be the self-appointed replacement for Kent Hovind, the flamboyant young-earth creationist known as “Dr. Dino,” who, since 2007, has been serving a ten-year sentence for various income tax violations. See Kent Hovind: Creationist Role Model.
Let us see what The Intelligencer tells us about the Dino Pastor. The bold font was added by us:
The Rev. Paul Veit told a crowd of children and their parents gathered in the gymnasium of the Plumstead Christian School that his view of the beginnings of the universe had an evolution of its own.
“I started with a total evolution education,” said the minister, who is the founder and director of Declare God’s Wonders Inc., an evangelistic ministry, and the Dinosaur Encounter, a Creation Learning Center located in Bridgton, Maine.
In case you’re wondering, Plumstead, where this momentous event occurred last night, is in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Ah, we’ve found the Rev’s website: Declare God’s Wonders. His “Welcome” message says: “Declare God’s Wonders, is sponsored by the Rev. Paul E. Veit often referred to as the ‘Dino Pastor’ …” So he really is a Kent Hovind wannabe. Good, we’ve missed that guy.
Here’s more from the article:
For the minister, who says he has taken more dinosaur footprints in the last two years than anyone, the fossils reveal an intelligent design in as the origin of the universe.
He argued that his findings show complexity in creation from the beginning, a complexity that points to the hand of a creator.
Well, yes — if dinosaurs were present from the beginning. Continuing:
The minister said that the Great Flood chronicled in the Book of Genesis is revealed in many mass dinosaur graveyards, pointing to discoveries that show thousands of fossils facing in the same direction as if they were covered with a cataclysmic flow of sediment.
Who knew? But it could have been a dinosaur parade. One more excerpt:
“The Grand Canyon is the loudest screaming graveyard,” he said. “It says God doesn’t fool around when he deals with sinners.”
