The weekend is coming up, and your Curmudgeon knows you need good reading material. You’ve come to the right place.
At the colossally stupid website of Jack Chick, purveyor extraordinaire of primitive young-earth creationism, we found something that is certain to give you hours of entertainment. You already know about Jack Chick, because we’ve previously posted about his Creationist Comic Books. If you haven’t yet seen them, you really should.
But today, dear reader, we’re not talking about Chick. We’re going to discuss Jack Chick’s favorite creation scientist, Kent Hovind. His “doctorate” is from a diploma mill named Patriot University (they’re so proud of Hovind they
have had a page about him at their website, but it’s gone now), and he’s currently incarcerated in a federal prison for tax evasion. Despite that unfortunate setback, Chick’s loyalty is undiminished.
Hovind’s current misfortune is only a trivial setback. Many great men have endured imprisonment, and sometimes far worse. Fortunately, Hovind’s monumental work endures. Jack Chick has a whole page devoted to this genius, whose work has literally inspired millions: Creation Seminar, by Dr. Kent Hovind. It’s a 17-hour long set of DVDs.
Chick sells the set for only $89.95. You’ll probably want to buy a copy for your personal library, but to keep you going until it arrives we’ll tell you how to view this material free of charge. Before we do that, however, here’s a bit of product description from Chick’s promotional page:
Dr. Kent Hovind is considered by many to be one of the foremost authorities on science and the Bible. His amazing ability to communicate complicated scientific concepts in an easy-to-understand formant makes this essential information accessible to lay people, as well as the science professor. … This 17-hour series is a “must-have” for anyone studying the vital subject of Creation.
We know you’re interested. Let’s read on:
Age of the Earth – uncovers the follies of the Big Bang theory as well as exposing the religious beliefs of evolution.
Dinosaurs and the Bible – traces the Biblical and historical references to dinosaurs with interviews of people who claim to have seen living dinosaurs.
This is information you probably can’t get anywhere else. We continue:
The Dangers of Evolution – reveals the terrible effects that evolutionary beliefs have had on societies throughout history.
And you must see this:
The Hovind Theory – blends scientific observations with Scripture in a fascinating explanation of what could have caused Noah’s Flood, the Ice Age, and the formation of coal, mountain ranges, and the Grand Canyon.
We can’t wait until they start teaching this stuff in Louisiana and Texas. Maybe they already do.
Anyway, we told you about a way to view these DVDs online — free. Yes, your Curmudgeon always comes through. Here’s where you want to go: Free Hovind. Seven of the DVDs seem to be there. We clicked on the first and watched a minute or two. It seems to work.
So now you can take the phone off the hook because your weekend is solidly booked up. Study hard, dear reader. We may have a quiz on Monday.
