Jack Chick Presents Kent Hovind’s Videos

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.

We’ve previously posted a time or two about Hovind. For example, see WorldNetDaily: Kent Hovind Is A Martyr, and WorldNetDaily on Kent Hovind, and Kent Hovind: Creationist Role Model.

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Dinosaurs and the Bible – traces the Biblical and historical references to dinosaurs with interviews of people who claim to have seen living dinosaurs.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.

  1. Living dinosaurs, eh? Conan Doyle was right? And here I was thinking that Professor Challenger was just a crackpot. . .

  2. There is an alleged soldier who claims to have seen pterosaurs whilst stationed in Cuba. Mayhap he is one of those eyewitnesses.

    It is obvious to me, if there is a lunatic out there, Hovind will find him.

  3. I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting up the nerve to commit suicide.

    I think that 17 hours of Kent Hovind will probably do it. If that won’t give me a sense of hopelessness and of the futility of intelligence in human society, along with a desperate desire to never be capable of hearing Kent ever again, I don’t think that anything can.

    Then again, it might put me into such a state of depression that I won’t be able to do anything at all. Makes it a tough call…

  4. Oh, what to DO!?!? This is such a tempting offer! I just don’t know! Do I finish my masters class research paper on the effects of 2.4 GHz band WiFi propagation in a suburban home? Or do I just bite the bullet (perhaps literally…) and thoroughly and completely study these videos?!?!
    Argh!!!

  5. 17 hours is definitely too much Hovind, however before we start feeling sorry for ourselves, we should reflect on what his fellow prisoners must be going through. If ever there was justification for early release, being incarcerated with Hovind would be it.

  6. For claiming to take the Bible literally, he seems to have missed the part about rendering unto Caesar.

  7. I read about Hovind videos a few years ago and was very interested in the folly. The library didn’t have them and I was surely not going to pay for them, so I looked on Torrent sites. Viola, success!!

    I don’t need to go into detail since this crapola has been discussed here for a long time. The production was the only thing possibly more pathetic than the “evidence”.
    Also, I have no shame in stealing content from the criminal, Hovind. Call it retribution and making things right on a small scale.

  8. ….. in an easy-to-understand formant …..

    “formant”?

    If the scientific standards are as good as the website’s professionalism, …..

  9. longie says: “….. in an easy-to-understand formant …..”

    Hovind’s fans can’t read, and his critics don’t bother to read that stuff. So like everyone else, I didn’t notice that.

  10. Why hasn’t Jack Chick received the Curmudgeon’s esteemed Buffoon award? He’s been dishing out his hateful propaganda for decades now. He doesn’t have the least clue about evolution, attacking it as contrary to his fundamentalist beliefs. (Has anyone noticed those who attack evolution say we must keep an open mind, except about the possibility their Bible is full of lies?) Anyway, I nominate Jack for the prestigious Buffoon award, if that’s how it works. Justice must be done!

  11. Steve asks:

    Why hasn’t Jack Chick received the Curmudgeon’s esteemed Buffoon award?

    Good question. I guess it’s because I see him as mostly a religious figure. The Buffoon Award has mostly gone to those with at least some cultural or political influence beyond the religious sphere.
