Workers testify in ‘Dr. Dino’ trial

| 121 Comments

The latest on the Hovind trial: Workers testify in ‘Dr. Dino’ trial. That should be “‘Dr.’ Dino”, of course.

Apparently he has sued the IRS at least 3 times. Not exactly the best way to get them on your good side…

Every so often the utter absurdity of Hovindesque buffoonery strikes me full in the face and I find myself shocked, once again, at the depths of ignorance to which humans can descend.

More depressing is that such ignorance is usually self-imposed.

Wow, living proof of my thesis. I feel humbled.

Methinks Dr. Dino will soon be starting a prison ministry.

I have noticed that websites and forums put up stuff to, more or less, attack someone. In one forum someone brought up a very good question that was over looked which got me to thinking: Does anyone check on the fruits of a particular ministry before bad mouthing it?

Heh

Isn’t baring your fruit sinful?

Not if it’s good fruit!

From that yecheadquarters site: Hovind may sue for slander!

I guess the ACLU, Stephen Gould and others should Hovind for slander too.

Hovind is now a verb!

I would so totally hovind Rosario Dawson…

Day Three:

Christian College leader says taxes are part of religion Hovind argues God’s workers are exempt

Angela Fail

A local Christian leader on Thursday testified against Pensacola evangelist Kent Hovind, explaining the Bible does not condone tax evasion.

Rebekah Horton, Pensacola Christian College’s longtime senior vice president, took the stand during the second day of testimony at the federal trial.

Antony - Thanks for the link - funny, funny stuff, DaveTard in all his glory! His defense of Hovind is a beautiful thing to behold.

Yep, I am looking forward to this, almost as much as Dover. Obviously the stakes are smaller, but could be just as much fun. I think he takes off and becomes fugitive… Anyone else have ideas on the outcome?

OMG, the YECheadquarters site is hysterical. Take this tasty morsel:

A theory is a set of believable variables that look and sound great. Question is, how many unprovable ideas does it take to make an absolute truth? Absolute truth is one word…

Theories are made up of variables? “Absolute truth” is one word?

As for the middle statement, I defer to the YECers as the experts of making unprovable ideas into absolute truth. Yet another group that defeats itself merely by talking.

He’s more con artist than fool. Ken Ham is cut from the same cloth, but he seems a lot smarter and better at it than Hovind.

It kills me that so many people are still taken in by his con, even now that his fraudulent nature is completely exposed. The vast majority of the YEC community still seems to be behind him. It’s just sick.

Yes folks, Trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with E and that stands for Evilution!

The actual problem is you strange people. Jesus said to pay taxes, but He was talking about just taxes. What is the definition of that? You can find out from the intent of the American forefathers.

The purpose of the IRS is to fund illegal global escapades ultimately for the destruction of all liberty, and also to put America under debt so it can fall. Part of the global escapades is to fund the purchase of WMDs for both America and Russia which will ultimately be used against the American people.

We have always been oppressed by high taxes. Our leaders then tell us we must not be ISOLATIONISTS, but must involve ourselves in other countries. We then have wars. Infiltrators then put our constitutional soldiers on the front lines specifically to have them poorly protected and killed off. The soldiers that remain now hate us and our liberties, and now our national leaders have, with their brothers the communists, unrestricted use of nuclear weapons we paid for. They will use those nuclear weapons to depopulate us and the rest of the world with the communists.

Wow, it’s been so long since anybody’s invoked “Communists” as anything other than a metaphor I was starting to think the fear was dead.

BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA AH AH AHA HA HA HA AHA HA HA HA HA HA AHA H A HA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Ted, tell us about the black helicopters.

Day Four, when we learn about Pope Kent the I:

Lawyer: Hovind detailed actions Evangelist said he ‘beat the system’

Michael Stewart

A Florida attorney testified Friday that Pensacola evangelist Kent Hovind disputed the government’s right to tax him and likened his ministry’s powers to that of a foreign embassy.

“He tried to stress to me that he was like the pope and this was like the Vatican,” Seminole attorney David Charles Gibbs testified at Hovind’s trial before U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers.

You know, Hovind’s legal position might be more formidable than it first appears. There was a homeless guy here in Dallas that had the courts tied in knots for years over tax issues with the defense that he was not an American citizen, but was a citizen of The Kingdo of God, and other such goofy sounding nonsense. Apparently he was able to find all sorts of obscure legal precedents for what he was doing.

Judge Jones’ notwithstanding, I do not have the greatest confidence in the courts. Recall OJ, and the $3 USFL award.

Hovind is not doing anything new. He’s parroting the same standard “arguments” that the loony-right militia-type nutters have been using for decades now. All of his arguments have been dealt with before, and everyone who made them in the past ended up in jail.

Hovind doesn’t have a prayer.

Pardon the pun.

The OJ case was soured by police misconduct, though. In this case the IRS seems to have been moving very slowly and carefully against Hovind–hopefully that means their behavior’s been completely by-the-book.

Most americans have several credit cards and use those plastic cards to buy material things to satisfy their needs and desires.… BUT NOT ALL CREDIT CARD HOLDERS CAN PAY THEIR CREDIT CARD BILLS AND THOSE BILLS ACCUMULATE OVER THE YEARS… THEN THEY APPLY FOR BANKRUPTCY… THEN THE COURT NODS AND APPROVES THEIR APPLICATION FOR BANKRUPTCY AFTER SPENDING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS AND NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY UP! WAKE UP AMERICA!!! THE IRS IS BEING MANIPULATED BY SPIRITUAL FORCES EVEN BEYOND the constitutionally mandated laws! Dr. KENT HOVIND AND HIS WIFE WERE HARRASSED, MANHANDLED, AND INDICTED NOT BECAUSE OF TAX-EVASION! Dr. KENT HOVIND AND HIS WIFE WERE HARRASSED, MANHANDLED, AND INDICTED BECAUSE THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE PROPAGATION OF CREATION SCIENCE!!! Dr. “Dino” Hovind is a bankrupt evangelist/missionary/preacher/God’s co-worker vs. satan’s atheists/evolutionists/non-Bible believing servants!!! What is the difference between a tax evader and a bankrupt missionary? A tax evader earns money from his profession/business and spends 100% of it on his materials needs and lusts and evades the IRS. A bankrupt missionary conducts FREE seminars on “GOD AS THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR OF MAN AND THE WHOLE UNIVERSE” and never get paid, never earn a penny, and spends his time, money, and life on PREACHING “GOD AS THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR OF MAN AND THE WHOLE UNIVERSE”. DR. KENT HOVIND IS INNOCENT ! WAKE UP AMERICA ! DR. HOVIND IS A PROPHET IN YOUR MIDST ! COME JUDGMENT DAY, ALL OF YOU WHO SCOFF AT DR. HOVIND’S TEACHINGS SHALL FACE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST AND AMONG THOSE WHO WILL RULE WITH CHRIST WILL BE PREACHERS AND PROPHETS OF GOD LIKE DR. KENT HOVIND.

Apparently the mere mention of the name “Hovind” brings all the nutters out of the woodwork.

Up to this point, I was willing to be generous and consider Hovind to be just a whackjob con artist. But the more I read responses like mrs bush’s, the more I think he’s a cultist interested less in the kingdom of god in heaven than in the kingdom of Hovind on earth. If I were one of the authorities responsible for public protection where this guy lives, I’d be keeping my eyes open for suspiciously large purchases of Kool-aid.

In the interests of historical accuracy I point out that the Jonestown massacre involved Flavor-Aid, not Kool-Aid. People make this mistake all the time. I suspect a vicious, underground, anti-Kool-Aid conspiracy, probably funded by the world-wide Flavor-Aid Hegemony. My evidence for this is the total lack of evidence for this. Obviously, a world-wide conspiracy of any power would be able to completely eradicate evidence of it’s existence. Thus, the lack of evidence precisely conforms to the expected evidence of the conspiracy’s existence. If there was evidence of the conspiracy, we would have to conclude that the conspiracy did not exist.

This post brought to you in Hovind-o-vision! Hovind-o-vision: bringing you the best in irrational conspiracy theory arguments since 1989.

Most americans have several credit cards… [snip]…PROPHETS OF GOD LIKE DR. KENT HOVIND.

Normally when I’m subjected to such a withering stream of nonsense, I am at least also presented with the opportunity to purchase illegal Viagra, a fake Rolex, or the stock of a company that has already filed for bankruptcy. What’s the upside supposed to be here?

I think the guy should have used more exclamation points.

And heck, he didn’t even mention the black helicopters.

Re “why summon only four “employees””

Er, can’t Hovind or his lawyer summon anybody they want as a witness even if the IRS didn’t summon that person?
