E-mail From A Kent Hovind Supporter

This is an e-mail that I received today from a Kent Hovind supporter about a petition I created and evolution and faith.

I find your enthusiasm to keep a family man in jail for his tax evasion issue a sad commentary.... even for an atheist. I think your motivation is far more than what is purportedly your reason for this absurd petition. I believe it is simply a symptom of a problem.....your problem with the God of the Universe. You understand nothing of this man and the good he has done for many. Your reasoning is also vapid in discerning truth from error. You have a religion as well as Hovind. Faith in a fairy tale called evolution. This fairy tale taught as a fact, which is a boldfaced lie.. As a mathematician I can attest that that it is a mathematical impossibility for organic matter to arise from inorganic matter. An the most learned molecular biologists know as a fact. This lie of evolution is tenaciously clung to by many due to the fact they have an issue with God and cannot face the truth scientifically. The evolutionary model does not even fall into scientific basic rules.....such as repeatable results! Come on get off this ridiculous idea of attempting to prolong this mans incarceration for your own bone to pick with the Author of Life! I am truly hoping you repent of this abberant behavior . What if it was you! Ever made a mistake? Think about it........

My response:


I am disturbed that Hovind and his supporters do not accept the conviction and that he broke the law. The petition was to show that people will not tolerate this.

My problem is not with God. I am agnostic, meaning I do not know if there is a god.

I have read what Hovind has done and it is not "good." Sure, love the sinner, hate the sin. But, if one does not repent for his failures and crimes, then how is this good? I am working on web site to show how hypocritical some Christians are, Benny Hinn, Pat Robertson, etc.

Evolution is not religion, I have repeated several times on blogs. Evolution does not have adherents. Evolution is fact and does not require a god nor does it rule one out.

You say that it is impossible for organic matter to come from non-organic matter? Does not the Bible say that humans were created from dirt?

It seems to me, that you have problem with reality. Show me evidence of how evolution is wrong and will show you how you are incorrect.

Beware of a wolf in sheep's clothing and please do the research.

Lord's Prayer Removal

It has been almost twenty years since the Lord's Prayer was removed from the public schools and now the Ontario government is looking to replace it. A committee will be set up to determine if they will replace the opening prayer with a rotation of faith prayers or a moment of silence.

I agree that there needs to be a change and reflection to our society. However, the same should go with public funding of faith-based schools such as the Roman Catholic system.

Radio debate on evolution

I listened to a debate between Dr. Geoffrey Simmons, from the Discovery Institute and Dr. PZ Myers. I recorded the audio, but it is available on the radio station and on PZ Myers blog.

Earlier in the day, PZ Myers received an e-mail from the radio hosts explaining that debate topic was being changed from the evidence of Evolution vs. evidence of Intelligent Design to whether evolution is fact or faith.

Simmons tried to explain that Darwinism equals evolution and there missing links in whale fossils; to which Myers tells him about several whale fossils that apparently Simmons does not know about.

In the end, Simmons resorts to ad hominems by saying Darwin did not like women and was a racist. Overall, PZ obviously won and one cannot debate or explain evolution in a hour. Hopefully, the hosts of the Christian radio program realize they got more than bargained for.

Does The Bible Condemn Pedophilia?

Video from Skeptic Bible Study on whether pedophilia is condemned in the Bible:

It is interesting that there is no clear law against having sex with children especially in Leviticus 20. It condemns sexual relations with close realtives very specifically. There was no priority by Biblical writers to condemn pedophilia.

We Are Animals

Creationists deny it, but it is a fact:

Humans are animals. We are mobile multicellular organisms whose cells are not encased in a rigid cell wall and we consume food (energy) from other organisms.

We are mammals. We are warm-blooded, have hair and feed milk to our young.

We are primates We are pentadactyly, we have fingernails and opposing thumbs, have a generalized dental pattern and a primitive body plan. We have forward-facing colour binocular vision.

We are apes. We do not have a tail, we are omnivorous, and we are highly intelligent.

We are humans. We are bipedal primates belonging to the mammalian species Homo sapiens in the family Hominidae.
