I hesitate to post another "annoying prominent Christian gets bitchslapped by reality" story right after seeing what the Ted Haggard thread has turned into, but this is too amusing to pass up.

Ever hear of Kent Hovind, AKA Dr. Dino? Creationist nonsense-spouter extraordinaire?

Here is a typically-insipid video of one of his seminars, complete with a tasteless introduction by a guy you immediately want to punch. (My congratulations if you can stomach his little speech for more than a couple of minutes.) This guy's been an irritant to the scientific community for years.

Anyway, it turns out that Dr. Hovind has just been found guilty on 58 counts of tax fraud and is now staring down nearly three centuries of prison time.

Anyone care to join me in a heartfelt BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA?

That was hardly the result of Ted Haggard.

I tried, I couldn't do it.

The fact that he's going to prison makes me happy. The only thing that would make me happier is to hear that he was beaten to death.

This guy takes idiocy and backwards thinking to a whole new level, previously unheard of.

I just have to say, .

I hope he actually has to serve out such a term, or I won't feel properly vindicated.

Prison is a great place to learn about natural selection, from what I've heard.

I could only watch it for about 10 minutes. It's too bad that the audience had to sit there and listen to him. I really felt sorry for the kid that told him he was an Atheist and then used his backwoods logic on him to make him unsure of himself.

I've been multi-tasking, so I've been having it running in the background for about 50 minutes now.

Oh, and people, VEEEERY interesting wordsmithing around minute 44 or so. He's not saying you have to get rid of evolution or creation, just "get rid of the lies." He also recommends ripping the "incorrect" pages out of the textbook, or gluing them together.

Oh, and I'm totally diggin' how every single evil ideology in the course of human history--from Nazism to Socialism--is the fault of evolution. And, school shootings happen because, you guessed it, the shooters believe in evolution.

He also seems big on complaining about how the "humanists" don't want a level playing field. Duh, and does he?

Ooh, here's a good quote--

"A second grader ought to be able to go to class and believe what they're taught."

Heck, I never had that luxury. I'm not sure that even is a healthy luxury.

The children yes, but the rest are just as stupid as he is.

Looks like his Tax dodging scheme was not very intelligently designed.

That'll be the line I'll be thinking of for the rest of the month.

Thankyou. Found it a very bad idea from the first idea of comparing evolution to Nazi doctrines, never good to pitch your argument right on something else that just happend to be supported by that party. Even worse to START with it.

Glad to. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Just reading the subject line put a smile on my face. But hey, they say prison is a good time to work on correspondence school. Maybe he can get a second mail-order PhD this way?
