Did you know there is a Creation Science Hall of Fame? Somehow, I did not. It’s not a brick and mortar place apparently, though they plan on building on in Northern Kentucky between AIG’s creation museum and the proposed Noah’s ark theme park.
The list of inductees is fairly amusing. Among the living inductees are weapons grade liars and frauds like Carl Baugh and Kent Hovind. The page on Hovind starts with this howler:
Kent E. Hovind (born January 15, 1953), an American young earth creationist, is considered by many to be one of the foremost authorities on science and the Bible.
I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there. Even by creationist standards, Hovind is a bad joke. I’ve had many a conversation even with his fellow young earth creationists who cringe at the mention of his name. Imagine being so utterly lacking in credibility that you manage to embarrass people who think the world is 6000 years old.
The amazing ability of Kent Hovind to communicate complicated scientific concepts in an easy-to-understand format makes this essential information accessible for youth and laypersons, as well as science professors.
By “ability…to communicate complicated scientific concepts in an easy-to-understand format” they obviously mean “ability to lie, distort and oversimplify scientific concepts he does not understand at all.” That he can do this with complete confidence has no bearing on the fact that he’s either lying or ignorant (both, actually).
