the extinction of doctor dino

And the good news just keeps rolling in. It seems as though Kent “Dr. Dino” Hovind, one of the anti-science evangelical leaders at the forefront of the “Dinosaurs Coexisted with People Just a Few Thousand Years Ago” movement, is headed for prison. Here’s a clip from Boing Boing:

Kent “Dr. Dino” Hovind, founder of Creation Science Evangelism and the Dinosaur Adventure Land creationist theme park in Florida (“where Dinosaurs and the Bible meet!”), and his wife face more than 200 years in jail for tax fraud. (Previous post with background here.) Yesterday, Dr. Dino was found guilty on 58 counts, including not paying an $845,000 employee-related tax bill…

Now, if only we could just start turning over some rocks around the Ken Ham compound.

[More on Dinosaur Adventure Land can be found in this report from the Southern Poverty Law Center.]

With any luck, not only will we take back our country from the Republicans next week, but Christianity will finally be returned to the world of rational thought… I don’t want to jinx it, but it really does feel like the tide may finally be turning against the fundamentalist anti-science hate mongers who have been leading our country into the abyss these past six years.

    How adorabe, Clementine’s first blog entry.

    There is nothing so heartwarming as the naive innocence of a child. Have a great day, I’m going out back and feed my unicorn!

    Don’t trip and get impaled on his fanciful horn.

    A> Dr. Dino is not anti science, he is pro truth. Have any of you actualy taken the time to listen to him, or anyone else who believes differently? I doubt it. Any and ALL theories
    including evolution(which strictly speaking does not qualify as a theory or even a hypothesis)should be open to scrutiny and debate, as well as be held accountable to prove. Evolution can in no way do this. I think that most of you know that evolution in not possible but cannot accept the alternative and so must continue to protect this “sacred cow” at all costs.Evolution is a religion in itself. There is little or no science but a determination to twist and turn science to make it fit the theory and if it doesn’t then it is thrown out. This comes through very clearly in the anger and zealousness of many of these comments. What happened to freedom of speach and freedom of religion (other than the religion of evolution) Don’t let anything but your fear stop you from having a open mind. AND if their are any of you who sonsider yourselves Christians or even believe in God then I suggest Prayer. If you really want to know the truth then pray for that. God will show you the truth. But be prepared to accept His truth and not man’s.

    Hey Judy, why aren’t you down at the brewery tonight, writing letters with the rest of ’em. I’m here minding the store until Mark gets back.

    Listen, I’m with you. I know dinosaurs and people co-existed. Even Mark posted proof right here on this very site. Did you check out the Pterodactyl stuff he put up last year?

    You seem like a really nice person. Could you transcribe the YouTube audio Mark posted today for me?

    Here’s the link to the post:

    Anyway, thanks for dropping by. I was siting here re-running the Fox 2 Greenpeace clip over and over, and just wondering what he heck Rebecca Sobel might be saying about Dingell. Now that’s a hot little number. Sobel…not Dingell, though I do find his grasp of issues very attractive as a candidate.

    Oh, by the way, you might want to get off the Internet. An Internet connection is the mark of the beast you know. I don’t know if anyone has made you aware of that.

    From now on, whenever I’m gone, you’re in charge, Robert.

    Thanks, Mark. I thought I handled everything pretty well. Of course, it was just the night shift, but you really should think about keeping someone here at the counter around the clock 24 hours. You could kinda think of me as your Art Bell. I could talk about conspiracies constantly and field questions from babysitters who are up late wondering what formulas to use in their rate calculations.
