"A Pensacola evangelist was arrested Thursday and indicted in federal court on 58 charges that include income tax evasion, making threats against investigators and filing false complaints against Internal Revenue Service agents."



Hm....a Pensacola evangelist. Who comes to your mind?


Dr. Dino's new name is now Dr.In Deep Doo Doo.

Hovind's wife, Jo Hovind, was also indicted on 44 of the counts and appeared in court alongside her husband.

Arraignment for the Hovinds is scheduled for2 p.m. Monday. The couple was released pending their trial but are not allowed to travel outside the Northern District of Florida.


Hmmmm….. This should give Kent some time to debate evolution in writing. We should send him a challenge. We could be helpful in keeping him from obsessing on his legal problems. He needs us!

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

As someone pointed out elsewhere, Hovind always counters evolution supporters with "Now you're perfectly welcome to believe that, but don't call it science, and don't use my tax dollars to support your religion."

Um, what tax dollars would he be referring to?

Far be it from me to gloat over the misfortune of another, but damn Sam! this has been a long time coming....

And it's misfortunes of his own devices. I figured he'd get busted for a tax cheat sooner or later -- Hovind's been weaseling around that for decades -- but I confess to being a little surprised that he's stupid enough to threaten the cops. The false complaints charge is also a little unsettling.

But then, I am reminded of the assault charges filed by a tenant of his a couple of years ago and consider that perhaps I shouldn't be all that surprised. I have, over the years, been acquainted with similar persons, difference being that those persons whom I knew were called thugs.

What a pity. I and a another SFN member had planned to get good and drunk, and go to Dinosaur Adventure Land with the express purpose of meeting the great man and puking on his shoes. Guess we'll have to postpone that trip for a while. Or maybe take it to Cincinnati....

Here is a more lengthy article on it.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Mercy sakes! He's even worse than I thought, and I wasn't at all sure that was possible.

Of the 58 charges, 44 were filed against Kent Hovind and his wife, Jo, for evading bank reporting requirements as they withdrew $430,500 from AmSouth Bank between July 20, 2001, and Aug. 9, 2002.

At the couple's first court appearance Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Miles Davis, Kent Hovind professed not to understand why he is being prosecuted. Some 20 supporters were in the courtroom.
Y'know, he reminds me of somebody...... Can't quite put my finger on him...... Something to do with milking the congragation like an eight-titted cow...... Hell, I dunno......

A little help here.....?

Thinking of this story, nailing Dr. Dino to the tax cross, had me smiling several times today.
Yee-haw!

Second runner up Dr. Hobo quote of the mouth club,
"If Evolution is true, there is no Creator, so laws come from mans opinion. That is called a democracy, which is a terrible form of government. Democracies always degenerate into dictatorships. In America, it is sad to say, has become a democracy. "

That is just precious. And slightly unsettling. And maybe terrifying.

Yes, it is. But history and indeed, current events tell us that it is the ultimate goal of all fundamentalists: the subjugation of all to their various, fairy tale philosophies.

Thus it has always been; thus it will continue to be. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

Hovind is a liar, con artist, and thief.

He preys on people who do not posess the mental faculty to detect his bullshit.

He has fake credentials and shamelessly calls himself "Dr".

He is indicted on 58 counts, most involving money. 58 crimes, involving money.

Personally I hope he sees the inside of a jail cell for some significant time.

He'd then have a captive audience.
