Doctor Hovind's doctoral dissertation revealed.

Well it's funnier than the climate emails.

These honest questions deserve an honest answer. I believe we have been lied to about the age of the earth. Satan, the father of all lies, has come up with this one to try to make a fool of Jesus Christ. Jesus said in Matthew 19:4 that the creation of Adam and Eve was the beginning. I believe Jesus was right.
What's he a doctor of, anyway?

I didn't think this was new news. I've heard about Hovind's thesis before - it's been available to people willing to purchase it for a long time.

Heh, I was scanning through it. He claims that because Islam is a pantheistic religion, it adherents more readily accept evolution. Which is why Turkey teaches evolution as fact.

Because Turkey is the best example of an Islamic government, right?

Hovind=Cunt.

He occasionally amuses with his willful ignorance, but largely, is just sad.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

I wonder what he has to say about the Jews largely accepting evolution as correct.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Other than Orthodox, yes. Which is to say most.

BTW, most Christians do too, except that they are not Real Christians <sup>TM</sup>.
