Quote# 141409

Evolution is a religion that people believe in. Nobody's ever seen a frog produce a non-frog or a cow produce a non-cow. You can believe it if you want (and you obviously do), but I don't think you understand what evolution really teaches. I show every night for the last 60-some nights, right from the textbooks, there was a big bang where nothing exploded and then earth cooled down, developed a hard rocky crust, and it turned into soup from the rain, and the soup came alive. That is all part of the evolution theory.

Now in the last 10 years when you guys' feet have been held to the fire, you've tried to narrow evolution down to variations within different animals. There's a whole lot more to it than that. I give six definitions and you're gonna show it in a minute, and my six divisions of that slippery word "evolution" are correct. I think you don't know anything about evolution. I think you believe a lot of things. You have a great faith; it's an admirable faith. But you don't know anything about evolution.

"nothing exploded" "it turned into soup from the rain" "the soup came alive"

That's in textbooks. Riiiight.

Kent Hovind, remember when he was the go to YEC? Then he got arrested and Ken Ham to advantage of his absence to take over. Even Kent's son follows Ham's teaching. It's sad seeing Hovind try to remain relevant.

Nor has anyone seen a wolf give birth to a Boston terrier, but even most creationists will accept that dogs are derived from domesticated wolves.

The favourite animal of my best friend is the Wolf. He has lots of books about them, and is always pleased when his friends find for him/give as gifts books that he doesn't have to add to his collection.

He also collects/is pleased to receive DVDs/VHSs of documentaries about them: including their evolution.

My best friend is a long-time Christian.

Your move, Kent 'My P.R. credibility is as destroyed as my anus after ten years in the can' Hovind.

Moral: Reconciling one's faith with now proven scientific fact. It's a thing.

Kent Hovind telling me "I don't think you understand what evolution really teaches". No, that's too much for any irony meter to take.

What kind of idiot would actually think that? Oh wait, it's Kent "Hello, my name is Kent Hovind" Hovind, that explains that. (that's the actual first line of his "doctoral" dissertation)

Some say that following the legalization of gay marriage, he has wanted to go back to prison; and that he once tore a picture of Charles Darwin in half. All we know is, he’s called the Hovind!

Ah yes, sure. You know, from your first few statements it seems like you have more of a beef with astronomy, physics and chemistry than with evolutionary biology. But who am I kidding, you are just rejecting science in general at this point and your ignorance is palpable. Don't you have something more important to think about, like your next criminal scheme?

...Methinks you're the one who doesn't understand what evolution actually says. But of course, you're Kent Hovind, the biggest dumbass in the creation fantasy world.

As far as I know, even other cretinists discourage people from reading/listening to/using the texts of Kent Hovind...

Horses and donkeys sometimes produce non-horses and non-donkeys (mules and hinnies).
We KNOW that you don't understand what evolution really teaches, Kenny-poo.

Our whole universe was in a hot, dense state
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started, wait
The earth began to cool, the autotrophs began to drool
Neanderthals developed tools
We built a wall (we built the pyramids)
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries
That all started with the big bang! Hey!


NOTHING of what you said there is part of the evolution theory, dearie. It's rather cosmology, geology and abiogenesis.
The ToE is about adaptation of existing life, through random mutations and natural selection.

I held my feet to the fire yesterday. It was a bit chilly so we lighted a fire in the soapstone-covered stove in our living-room.
It was very cozy.



(Pictured; not our stove, but fairly similar.)

No, YOU don't understand what evolution really teaches, if you're regurgitating that "never seen a frog produce a non-frog" nonsense, which has been refuted a million times already.

I show every night for the last 60-some nights, right from the textbooks, there was a big bang where nothing exploded and then earth cooled down, developed a hard rocky crust, and it turned into soup from the rain, and the soup came alive. That is all part of the evolution theory.


No, it's fucking not. Evolutionary theory does not address the origin of the earth or abiogenesis. If you really do have textbooks, you need to read them again, and this time, actually try to understand them.

I think you don't know anything about evolution. I think you believe a lot of things. You have a great faith; it's an admirable faith. But you don't know anything about evolution.

Well obviously he's going to burn in Hell.
