Now that he’s out, what’s Kent Hovind up to?

He’s making YouTube videos! Lots and lots of YouTube videos, several per day, it appears. If you’re concerned about the volume — how will we ever keep up? — don’t be. It’s all exactly the same old tired Young Earth apologetics and Bible babble that he’s always done.

His latest topic is WOE: What On Earth is about to happen? He expects Jesus to return in 10-15 years. Right.

    Ten to fifteen years? I thought according to other “reliable” sources that all that was happening in September of this year!

    His sign is wrong. It shouldn’t be nothing vs. god, it should state god is nothing.
    Jebus returning? Yeah, sure hey.

  3. Who Him says

    Jesus is coming back? This is the first time I have heard this claim. Why didn’t anyone warn us?

  4. Saganite, a haunter of demons says

    I guess their M. O. is to predict it for every year until it happens. They have to be right at some point, right? Just because it didn’t happen for 2000 years doesn’t mean it won’t happen, right? Right?! Just keep throwing those numbers out there.

  5. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    I think 10-15 is how many years he’ll get when he commits tax fraud again.

    Which, unless he declares income and pays taxes on those tapes, will happen sooner than later….

    Maybe Brother Kent should go back to jail to wait for Jesus.

    The first time that I heard him speak, he was really shilling the videos. It is nice that he YouTubes them for free.

  7. Fair Witness says

    10 to 15 years. Just enough time for him to retire with all those donations from the faithful.

    Now that he’s out, what’s Kent Hovind up to?

    Trying to regain control of the empire from his son Eric.

  9. robro says

    Which Jesus came? When did he come? Where? He can’t come again, if he has never been here in the first place.

  10. RobertL says

    Fair Witness @12 that was my first thought, too. Ten to fifteen years will see his career out.

  11. Saganite, a haunter of demons says

    @#14 robro
    While it isn’t exactly clear from contradictory sources, from what I understand the historical Jesus may have had a wife. If so, then I’d assume he came more than once during his life time, so his second and however many other comings already happened.

  12. philhoenig says

    “Hello. My name is…”

    Was that how Kent’s PhD started, or was that Ken Ham’s? I always get those two mixed up.

  13. rietpluim says

    “Hello, my name is Kent Hovind, and I’ve been an inmate for ten years and a convicted tax fraud.”

  14. zenlike says


    That would be an improvement for Kent. As far as he is concerned, he still sees himself as a wrongly convicted innocent.

  15. robro says

    Saganite — I’ve so no evidence of a living, historical Jesus, married or otherwise.

    According to Chris McCann – a friend of Harold Camping – the world ends on October 7.
    We live in interesting times:)

    I am surprised by the number of positive comments for “Dr” (of a mail order school) Hovind on youtube: either old DVDs from his ministries or interviews from prison. Especially charming are some posts from a year or so ago in which he “debates” actual scientists or professors from paraphrases with his supporters. Is it really necessary to engage the idiocy? I would like to think no…that people who aren’t involved in the sciences would actually listen to scientists (instead of politicians or any creationist). But apparently there are a substantial portion of Americans who are not just creationists, but YOUNG EARTH CREATIONISTS as well!! How many times can sane people try to explain observational science and that evolution is not the same thing as cosmology, geology, astrophysics, etc. The Kent/Eric Hovind talking points begins with “hey, we like science”…but then go on and redefine all scientific terms (to apparently fit their myopic view of the bible). That anyone thinks a collection of gospels can be a better factual source then observational science is more a reflection of themselves! Rational people can only keep going on about how the sciences can easily date the Earth well beyond 6,000 years, that examples of irreducible complexity still have alternative functions, that humans are in the primate family, and that humans did not interact with dinosaurs. The video of Richard Dawkins interviewing Wendy Wright pretty much sums up this debate: no matter how much facts and reason you interject: the “believers” are still going to totally ignore and keep asking “where’s the missing link”? Even though there are wonderful examples of missing links all through the phylum, it’s lost with the creationists. I suppose it’s all our duties to interject some reason, but don’t get too frustrated if it goes unnoticed .
