Berlin, Montgomery, and Atlanta

Dad, Kent Hovind, arrived in Montgomery, Alabama at the Maxwell Federal Prison Camp after his 40-hour bus ride from Berlin, New Hampshire on May 14. After being there only five days, he was called to the office, handcuffed, and taken to the Elmore County Jail. He was not informed why he was taken there and spent 21 days in the crowed, unairconditioned jail.

My family drove up to visit him, but could only see him through the glass at the Elmore County Jail. It was an emotional visit, as Dad had not seen any of his grandchildren for three years. He was never officially informed of why he was moved – which is terribly frustrating for anyone. Helpless to do anything to ease Dad’s frustration, unable to hug him, and knowing that he desperately needs dental work done made it hard to see him in these conditions. We departed our hour visit, anxious for him to get back to the Prison Camp at Maxwell AFB, as this was the best facility at which Dad had been during his seven-and-a-half year incarceration.

On June 6, he was handcuffed and put on a bus which took him to the Atlanta Transfer Center, his third time there. This facility has been referred to as “the armpit of the Bureau of Prisons,” as the Atlanta Penitentiary facility was built in 1902.

At this time, we do not know how long he will be in the Atlanta Transfer Center, nor where he will be sent next. We continue to trust God’s divine work in my Dad’s life and in the lives of those whom God may choose to use Dad to influence for Christ. Although letters are very encouraging, we are not posting an address at this time since we don’t know if he will receive his mail there at the transfer facility, nor when he may be moved, in which case all of his mail may not be forwarded. When we have an address to which you may write, we will post that information. Thank you for praying for my dad.

Transferred to Montgomery, Alabama

“Thank you,” to everyone who continues to pray for my dad. After being in Berlin, New Hampshire for the past 19 months, he was moved to Montgomery, Alabama last week — his 14th move since his incarceration began on November 6, 2006.

Those of you who know him well won’t be surprised that he talked about the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ to as many people as he could during his 40-hour bus transfer. He said that witnessing opportunities included talking to a Communist Chinese student studying in New York, four Russian students on a four-month tour studying English, a man from India, five Ukrainian students in the United States to work and travel for four months, and several others.

The prison camp in Berlin had about 100 men. The one in Montgomery houses nearly 900. Dad began making his Name Book Marker Tracts and paper airplanes the first day at his new housing and the requests started pouring in with many men asking for their name to be put on a book marker. Dad made nearly 300 by the end of the second day! Wow! Wouldn’t it be great if a bunch of those guys trusted Christ!

Dad is scheduled to go to six-months home confinement on February 11, 2015. Following that, he will begin five years of probation.

Dad’s new address is:
Kent Hovind 06452-017
Federal Prison Camp
Maxwell Air Force Base
Montgomery, AL 36112 USA

Thank you, again, for your prayers.

All for HIS glory,

Eric

 

Home Confinement

Update from Eric Hovind

We received an update regarding my Dad’s release. According to his latest review meeting, he will be sent to home confinement for a period of six months on February 11, 2015. Dad continues to request that 6 months of Half-Way House time be added to that, as the BOP regulations permit up to one year of Half-Way House time on a ten-year sentence. However, the BOP regulations do not require them to grant a full year. It is a discretionary decision that lies in the hands of the BOP Administration.

Dad also continues requesting a furlough transfer closer to home. He is currently still in Berlin, New Hampshire, over 1,500 miles from Pensacola.

We all continue asking God to work all for HIS glory. To the many who are praying for Dr. Hovind, we say a humble thank you.

All for HIS glory,

Eric Hovind

Christmas

About a week before Christmas as a man walked down the street, he noticed a sign in a store window that said, “Merry Xmas!” Being an algebra teacher, he walked in, found the store owner and said, “Excuse me, sir. Is there some sort of prize for the one who can solve the equation?”

With knitted eyebrows, the owner gave the teacher a puzzled look and asked, “What equation are you talking about, sir?”

The teacher replied, “Why, the one in 12-inch letters in your front window.”

The store owner looked at the window like a calf lookin’ at a new gate.

The teacher continued, “Your sign says, ‘Merry Xmas.’ I teach algebra. I can solve the X for you. It’s Jesus! Andrew told his brother Peter about Jesus when he said, ‘We have found the Messiah which is, being interpreted, the Christ.’ It’s pretty simple, sir. Jesus Christ is what is missing on your window. Is He missing from your heart, too?”

Eyes wide open, the store keeper looked like he had seen a ghost. Finally, he lowered his head and softly said, “Yes, I’m afraid he is. I wish I could find him.”

The teacher reached in his pocket and pulled out a New Testament. In a matter of minutes the algebra teacher led the man to Jesus.

The store owner said, “I think I’ll get some soap and water and fix that sign right now! Thanks for helping me find the answer to the equation. It is easy to solve now that I think about it. Jesus has been missing from my life for a long time. Thanks for stopping.”

How about you? Is Jesus missing from your life? Is He missing from the life of someone in your family or your neighbor? Have you led ANYONE to Jesus this year? We are about out-a-year, ya know. Let’s find somebody soon. If ya can’t get a big one, then get a little one. Somebody is HOPING that somebody will care enough to tell them.

Psalm 142:4 “I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.”

Merry CHRISTmas!

Open letter to House speaker John Boehner and all US Congressmen

Open letter to House speaker John Boehner and all US Congressmen,

HOLD FIRM! NO TAX INCREASE FOR ANYONE! NO increase in the Debt ceiling! The government needs more money “from the rich” like a drug addict needs “one more fix” before he decides to quit or an alcoholic needs “one more beer” before he starts to sober up! STOP RIGHT NOW!

It should be obvious to anyone with one eye and half a brain that the REAL goal in all this political posturing by Barak Obama and many Democrats is simply the advancement of Communism in America. I don’t understand how ANYONE- Republican, Democratic or Independent can want to increase “revenues” even one more dime! There is a spending problem not a revenue problem but it goes even deeper than that!

The entire idea of “take from the rich and ‘redistribute’ to the poor” is pure Communism 101. Go to ANY communist country to see how they got there and the end result. They always follow Karl Marx’s thinking and the idea that you take two steps forward and one step back. Everyone thinks they backed up but they are actually one step closer to the goal! That is all Barak is doing. Don’t “compromise” ONE INCH!

Everyone in Congress, the Senate and the Executive branch (and judicial branch!) took an oath to follow and defend the U. S. Constitution. I would suggest they ALL get it off the shelf, dust it off and read it. It’s only a few pages long. It gives the clear limits of government. I can solve the financial crisis in 10 minutes! Follow the Constitution! Why are “The Feds” involved in: education? a war on drugs? foreign wars that don’t involve us? welfare of any kind? medical decisions of any kind?

You should follow the Constitution and “coin money” and shut down the mis-named “Federal Reserve” and put us on a real money basis. Why do you let private bankers print our “money?” Shut down about 95% of all government programs and lay off about 95% of the government workers and release all federal prisoners who did commit a crime on federal property like Post Offices and Military bases and scale the Fed WAY back to what the founders envisioned. Stop calling ANYTHING an “entitlement.” There are NO entitlements. No one is “entitled” to welfare, Social Security, Obama Care, Medicare, education or 1,000 other programs at the federal level. If ANY program cannot be found in the Constitution you swore to uphold, shut it down. Stop funding it! That is your job. That would “balance the budget” in 10 minutes!

There you have it. Everyone else seems to be giving their ideas on the fiscal cliff so I’d throw in my 2 cent’s worth. We went over the cliff MANY years ago. The ONLY solution to America’s SERIOUS problems is found in II Chronicles 7:14. Our problem is spiritual and the solution is spiritual not political. We need to return to our godly heritage. God would have spared Sodom if He could have found 10 righteous people. Are there 10 in Congress? The Senate? In the Executive branch? Judicial? I pray so!

The founders knew that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. They also knew the power to tax is the power to destroy. They gave CLEAR instructions in the Constitution about taxes and what the federal government could and could not do. Go to www.wallbuilders.com and read what the founders said. They gave great advice for times like these!

Speaker Boehner, you folks in Congress are supposed to control the purse strings. Well, DO YOUR JOB PLEASE! Don’t vote for ANY spending outside the limits of the very document you swore to uphold. If the president wants to go over the cliff, let him. DON’T have your fingerprints ANYPLACE ON IT PLEASE! We need Statesmen NOT politicians! Ignore the polls, the Senate, the media, the critics and follow the Constitution please. For all of us!

Kent Hovind – POW in America

The Mayans Should Have Gotten A Bigger Rock

BROTHER HOVIND!!! Is Dec. 21, 2012 the End of the World? That’s when the Mayan calendar runs out!

Ahhhhh, NO! The Mayans should have gotten a bigger rock, that’s all.

Dec 21 is NOT the end of the world but it IS the first day you can watch an exciting new movie about the end times on youtube for free! :) Go to www.afterthetribulation.com for details. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. PLEASE tell EVERYONE you know (or can get to know by then) that they NEED to watch this film and get ready for what is coming! Maybe get it on DVD for a belated Christmas present?

My longtime friend and Pastor, Steve Anderson and THOUSANDS of others (myself included) have come to realize that we “independent, fundamental, temperamental, right wing, radical, chicken eatin’, Bible believing Baptists” have been deceived about the rapture for the last 180 years! For 38 years of my Christian life I was taught and believed in the “pre-trib” rapture idea that was made up by a 15 year Scottish old girl in 1830! I just trusted the “prophecy experts” to have studied it and to know what they were teaching. NOT a good idea! “Study to shew YOURSELVES approved unto God…” Hmmm? I failed at that on this topic! Not any more though!

II Thes. 2:1-3 says the Day of Christ (the day of the rapture–NOT “Day of the Lord” as in NIV and others!) CANNOT come until two things happen: A great falling away and the man of sin (antichrist) is revealed. I see now why Satan has pushed so-o-o-o-o-o-o hard to deceive people about the timing of the rapture! So-o-o-o-o-o many are waiting for the Lord to come and rapture us out before things get bad. That is NOT gonna happen and Jesus NEVER said it would! He said, “In the world ye SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION…” Jn. 16:1-4, 33. (BTW- DON’T confuse tribulation with wrath!)

Why don’t you tell the Christians being killed by the hundreds TODAY in various parts of the world that “we will not be here for the tribulation.” (See persecution.com) Tell them, “God would never let His church go through suffering.” Ahhhhh, WRONG! Study the history of the 2,000 year trail of blood Christ’s Church has endured. It will be here in America SOON! I predict that because of the disillusionment over the false pre-trib doctrine that MILLIONS of believers right here in America will “fall away” from their faith and even turn other believers and their own family in to be imprisoned or killed just as Jesus warned us would happen in Mt. 24; Mk. 13 and Lk 21! Better read II Peter 3 CAREFULLY!

If you were a Jew living in Germany in 1933 and could see the future, what would you have done? If you were living before the Great Depression in 1929 and could know what was about to happen, what would you have done? If you were living in NJ on the beach before Superstorm Sandy hit and could see the future, what would you do? Well, we have a Book that tells us what is about to happen AND what we should do about it. That’s what this film is about! Watch it and get ready.

This is NOT the time to be scared or panic. 365 times the Bible says, “fear not…” This IS a GOOD time to get SERIOUS with your Bible reading AND your relationship with God! This would also be a great time to quit playing with that stupid ball (ANY ball) and win souls! (I been sayin THAT for YEARS!) This WILL be a GREAT time to win crowns! (Rev 2-3) Jesus told us to REJOICE in persecutions because GREAT is our reward! (He knows things that we don’t :) )

Anyway, I can’t see the movie from here (unless I win my case and go home before that!) so please watch it and tell me what you think. If I can encourage you to stay true to the Lord in the coming persecution it helps me get the Dan. 12:3 prize! You can have the prize too! Mark Dec 21 on your calendar now and make a list of folks to blast an email, tweet, phone call, telegram, yell over the fence, etc to on that day to remind them to watch it as well!

I’ll see you at the finish line! It’s closer than you think! :)

A “Science Guy” Against Science?

Written September 1, 2012

This rebuttal is my response to an article written on Bill Nye, the Science Guy. I have responded paragraph by paragraph to Mr. Hallowell’s article on Mr. Nye.

Billy Hallowell, “Scientist Bill Nye Hammers Creationists: Evolution-Deniers ‘Hold Everybody Back,‘ Harm Children’s Education & Hold Views That Will Eventually Be Extinct,” The Blaze, August 27, 2012.

Bill Nye was once beloved for being America s brightest and most energetic “science guy.” However, the former children s show host (“Bill Nye the Science Guy” aired from 1993 until 1998) is entering more contentious ground of late, as he recently jumped into the political realm to intensely support President Barack Obama s re-election campaign.

The adjectives used by some to describe Bill Nye include bright and energetic. History records lots of people who were “bright” and “energetic” but were WRONG. Hmmm? Let’s see: Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, Voltaire, Osama bin Laden to name a FEW who were zealous for the wrong cause. Let’s remember that “bright and energetic” does NOT = right!

But, politics isn’t his only area of interest these days. Last week, the famed scientist lashed out against champions of creationism. In a new video for Big Think, an online educational forum, Nye claims that evolution deniers are damaging children and harming scientific progress.

“Evolution deniers?” Do ya see any prejudice in THAT statement? Before we can decide if we “deny” evolution, we need to understand the terms. Bill needs to define the word evolution first in order for folks to know if they want to “deny” it or not! I have been through this important define-the-terms step in all 100 debates I did with evolutionists at various universities as well as thousands of Q&A sessions. I encourage students and teachers everywhere to carefully define the word evolution BEFORE they enter into a discussion on evolution, so everyone knows what they are discussing. It is futile to proceed until the terms are defined. The problem (intentional?) is that the word “evolution” actually has six meanings or levels or stages:

  1. Cosmic evolution: the origin of time/space/matter from nothing in the supposed “Big Bang”
  2. Chemical evolution: all the elements “evolved” from hydrogen
  3. Stellar evolution: stars formed from dust clouds
  4. Organic evolution: life formed from non-living matter
  5. Macro-evolution: plants and animals produce offspring different than their ‘kind’
  6. Micro-evolution: variations develop within the kind such as big dogs and little dogs; bacteria becoming resistant to drugs; etc.



Only ONE of these definitions for evolution is true SCIENCE—Number 6. The first five are part of a RELIGION that adherents must “believe” in since they have NEVER been observed or demonstrated. Bill is guilty of mixing these definitions indiscriminately. He (along with many science books) sees and shows lots of evidence for definition #6 with which I agree, but then ASSUMES that this is evidence for the first five. That is NOT good science, Bill! The variations we all observe and that every farmer on planet earth understands and uses does NOT offer ANY evidence for the first five definitions of evolution.

Of course, Bill is welcome to BELIEVE the first five definitions, but he should be honest and stop trying to deceive people into thinking they are also part of science. Only #6, micro-evolution can be observed and demonstrated, the criteria for provable science. Creationists do NOT “deny” that there is evidence for evolution definition #6, but we DO deny there is any “scientific” evidence for the first five. Bill should plainly and honestly admit his use of the word evolution is religious. He is free to promulgate his religious views on his own dime, but he should not be allowed to use tax payer money to teach his mixed definitions of evolution as science in tax funded programs. Bill is the one who is “damaging children” and “harming the scientific process” when he confuses the terms and evidence!

The video, which was posted last Thursday, has already been viewed more than one million times. Entitled, “Creationism Is Not Appropriate for Children,” the clip holds little back when it comes to the scientist’s views on evolutionary denial. In the video, Nye takes particular issue with the fact that America is the only nation in which creationism is so widely embraced.

Millions of copies of our Creation Seminar Series are circling the globe in over 30 languages (see: www.creationtoday.org) so Bill needs to get busy! Bill is the one in denial. The evidence for a Designer is OVERWHELMING at ALL levels through the microscope or telescope. The verse in 2 Peter 3:15 describes it perfectly—”willingly ignorant…”! Does Bill need to light a candle to see the sun?

“Denial of evolution is unique to the United States,” he said. “People still move to the United States. And that’s largely because of the intellectual capital we have, the general understanding of science.”

Beer is often sold at football games. Beer has NOTHING to do with football and beer does NOT ever produce better athletes by frequent association with football. It is true that the evolution religion is unfortunately often mixed with science books, but it will never become science by virtue of frequent association with real science. Evolution needs to be taught in a RELIGION class at school or maybe an “ancient mythology” class, but NOT in a SCIENCE class.

His qualms with individuals who don t embrace the notion that human beings evolved goes well beyond mere theological and scientific disagreement. Nye believes that those who tout creationism are actually doing damage to scientific progression.

All through history there have been FALSE notions that hindered or damaged scientific advancement. For instance, the geocentric theory made it very hard to advance astronomy. Today, evolution is one of the greatest hindrances to the advancement of science. See the video “Expelled” with Ben Stein for many examples.

“When you have a portion of the population that doesn’t believe in that, it holds everybody back, really,” he said, going on to say that it’s difficult to make sense of life and to attain the proper answers if one denies the scientific theory. “Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science — in all of biology.”

This is a crazy statement for an otherwise intelligent man to make! It was the belief in creation and design in nature that was the driving force behind the founding and advancement of EVERY branch of science over the last 400 years. It is the religion of evolution that is the obstacle today. DESIGN is the fundamental idea in all of science—NOT evolution! The evolution theory has done nothing in the advancement of science. Revelation 12:9 says Satan “deceiveth the whole world.” You have been deceived, Bill. Open your eyes before it is t-o-o-o-o-o late!

Bill’s statement, “Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science and all of biology” is not only unprovable and wrong, it is standard dogma for his followers. I have often said that even if evolution, as in the first five definitions, were true, it has NOTHING to do with any real practical science. In addition to being harmful to the advancement of science, evolution is a USELESS theory!

Nye went on to plead with parents — even those who “deny evolution” and live in a “world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe” — to properly educate their children.

I agree! Parents need to “properly educate their children.” This would include teaching them the truth about evolution in order to prepare them to face the zealots who peddle their evolution religion under the guise of science. Part Four of The Creation Seminar entitled, “Lies in the Textbooks,” and my books: Help! I’m Being Taught Evolution in my Earth Science Class!, and, Help! I’m Being Taught Evolution in my Biology Class! would be a great start for curriculum!

“We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can — we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems,” he added.

“We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers in the future.” Hmmm? Are these Bill’s code words to say that anyone who does NOT fall for his religion should NOT be allowed to vote, should not be allowed to earn a living, or maybe even, not allowed to live on planet earth? What engineer uses any of the ideas of the evolution religion in his work, Bill?

“In another couple centuries that worldview, I’m sure just won’t exist,” Nye concluded. “There’s no evidence for it.”

Future? I think it was Voltaire who said something similar. He said that in the future, no one would believe the Bible. Sometime after that Voltaire’s house was used to store Bibles to ship to missionaries! Nietzsche said, “God is dead!” Hmmm? I think God would say, “Nietzsche is dead!”

As noted, Nye has been speaking out fervently for President Obama’s re-election campaign and, as Inquisitr has noted, he’s been stumping for him.

Isn’t it revealing that a guy who believes he came from a rock and that there are therefore no moral absolutes would be for Obama? What morals does a rock, or more recently, a monkey, have? Hmmm? Makes ya think about this election! Truly the god of this world, Satan, has blinded the minds of many. Second Corinthians 4:4 says, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

Proverbs 28:2 also gives us a timely warning: “For the transgression of the land, many are the princes thereof.” We have LOTS of politicians and government bureaucrats telling us how to run our lives in every detail because we are a wicked nation! God is giving us what we DESERVE not what we WANT. America has SERIOUS problems that will NOT be fixed by this (or any) election. I think 2 Chronicles 7:14 is the ONLY fix for this problem! Read that verse carefully! God is waiting for HIS people to do right.

Remember Stalin said, “He who votes is not important. He who counts the votes is important!”

When I am released, my offer still stands. I will debate any ten evolutionists, including Bill Nye, at any time on three simple conditions:

  1. The Creationist side gets half the time.
  2. We talk about one topic at a time.
  3. Either side can video the debate and distribute it, unedited, except for adding in visuals or PowerPoint slides.



I would love to see Bill’s (or anyone else’s) best evidences for any of the first five definitions of evolution. Looks to me like anyone with one eye and half a brain can see that “God created the Heaven and the earth.”

BTW, world events s-u-u-u-r-e make ya think we are getting close to the end just as the Bible predicted. Meanwhile — WIN SOULS!

See ya at the finish line!
