I received the above image from 'WinifredB' today and was upset and disturbed to find out what our Government have done to this great man. This is not justice!
Dr. Kent Hovind (born 1953), commonly called "Dr. Dino", is a prominent and controversial young Earth creationist. He founded Creation Science Evangelism in 1989 and has a doctoral degree in Christian education from Patriot University.
In 2001, Hovind opened a theme park in Pensacola, Florida called Dinosaur Adventure Land, filled with exhibits explaining God's Creation.
On January 19th 2007, Hovind was sentenced to 10 years in prison on 58 federal accounts of tax related offences, and is scheduled for release on August 11th, 2015.
Hovind is well known for his standing US$250,000 offer to anyone who can "prove evolution".The offer has gone unclaimed. Contributors at TalkOrigins, a pro-evolution web-site, have pointed out that Hovind's challenge includes not just biological evolution but also abiogenesis, cosmology and other things, and have claimed that the challenge is worded in a way that makes it impossible to fulfill since it requires proving the negative statement that "evolution" is the only possible explanation for the existence of life.[
