No, this isn’t about Kent Hovind — he styles himself “Dr. Dino.” It’s about Rev. Paul Veit. We wrote about him once before, back in 2008: Introducing Paul Veit, the “Dino Pastor”.
He has a website — Declare God’s Wonders — which says:
Paul Veit is a graduate of Nyack College and Denver Conservative Baptist Seminary. He is pursuing on-going paleontological training at the Mt. Blanc Fossil Museum. He is ordained in the Christian Missionary Alliance and is licensed as an evangelist. He 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.
After years of never showing up in any of our news sweeps, Veit’s name popped up this morning in the Times Leader of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Their headline is ‘Dino Pastor’ preaches in Wright Township about science behind creationism. The newspaper has a comments feature, and the comments aren’t flattering to the rev. Here are some excerpts from the news story, with bold font added by us:
The “Dino Pastor” brought his message and evidence that he says proves creation and Noah’s flood Saturday night. The Rev. Paul E. Veit talked about topics such as pyramids, rock cuts, elongated skulls and aliens to prove creationism in the front of New Life Community Church, 570 S. Main Road.
Darn! If only we had known about this, we could have gone there to see the presentation. Now we have to settle for a newspaper account. Ah well, let’s read on:
“Evolutionists definitely needs [sic] aliens,” Veit said during his presentation. Veit said that there are three things people should question about evolution — aliens’ distance to earth, the scientific laws and that the Bible only teaches about God and heaven. “The Bible mentions no other beings, that’s not fair to aliens.”
We’re not sure what that’s about, but it appears that the Dino Pastor doesn’t like aliens. Let’s continue:
Describing the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), Veit reminded individuals that there is one group who has never claimed to be taken by aliens: the born again Christians. “The born again’s [sic] who have asked God for forgiveness,” he said.
Is that right? Those folks are never abducted by aliens? Wait a minute — won’t the rapture be a big, global taking by an alien? Maybe not. There’s so much we don’t understand. Here’s more:
As he described rock cuts, Veit told the few dozen in attendance that “man is and always was brilliant,” even as the technology King Solomon and his followers used became lost to history until the 1800s.
Yeah, those guys had their own internet back then. Moving along:
Veit brought his mobile museum of authentic fossils for presentation. They included dinosaur poop, a replica of an enlongated skull and dinosaur eggs.
Wowie — a mobile museum featuring dinosaur poop — a caravan of coprolites! One must admire the ministry of the Dino Pastor.
Okay, skipping a bit, here’s the last line of the story:
With the evidence he presented, Veit knows “evolution looks dead in its place.”
Mark Twain is often credited with saying: “Never argue with someone who buys ink by the barrel.” To that we can add: “… or with anyone who travels with a truckload of poop.”
