Hey that's Kent "Dr Dino" Hovind you're talking about, currently spending 10 years at the Federal Correctional Institution, Edgefield, South Carolina after being found guilty of 58 counts of tax evasion. Look him up, he's a real loon.

I would think you would write a good article about Ben Stine's new documentary Expelled. http://www.expelledthemovie.com
Here are a couple of very obvious problems that people who promote young earth creationism can't deal with:
1. The earth must be older than 6000 years because 6000 years is not long enough to contain all of the known human history. 6000 years ago was the middle stone age. People had existed for a lot longer than that and we have cave paintings and other archaeology to prove it.
2. If the dinosaurs were wiped out by a world wide flood and humans and dinosaurs coexisted why are there no fossilised people, just fossilised dinosaurs? Why are there no fossilised mammals in the same strata as the dinosaurs? The answer is that the different types of animal lived at different times. Dinosaurs came first, then mammals and then man, long after the dinosaurs were fossilised.
I don't even mess with young Earth creationist. I had a few of them posting junk on my site for awhile. They're impossible to talk with. Just think how blinded by belief they must be to ignore all the proven science that says otherwise.
It's like trying to teach a blind person the colors of a rainbow.
Also, Ben Stein's new movie is probably one of the lamest attempts the ID crowd has come up with. Check it out:

Answer to all the above: We don't know, we're trying to find out, using reason and evidence. It's sometimes known as 'the Scientific Method'.
Counter question to creationists; where did your creator come from? Who created her? In your answer, please address the issue of Infinite Regress.
Comment from: evolution?...lol Visitor
first off, the creater is a HE. secondly, you bring up infinite regress, ok, HE had no beginning. if you doubt that then let me ask you a question...reffering to the ORIGINAL questions, where did everything necessary for the so called "big bang" come from? if you think about it, both Creationism and Evoulutionism take a great deal of faith. i myself though have that faith and believe in THE Divine Creator.
The "creator" is a he? How do you know that?
Infinite regress, no problem, the universe had no beginning, how can something exist without a universe for it to exist in?
Evolution doesn't even have anything to do with cosmology.
Comment from: evolution...lol Visitor
if the universe had no beginning, then why do evolutionists always ask who created the Creator? why can't He have been there forever?
It is always the creationists asking what was before or what caused the big bang. What exactly is an evolutionist?
Comment from: JERRY Visitor
EVOLUTION IS A THEORY AND HAS FAILED TO MEET THE CRITERIA OF REPEATABLITY AND UNTIL IT DOES IT WILL REMAIN A THEORY.
Comment from: Nate Visitor
Paul, you are both glib and blithe. The answer to the second question might as well be a line from a bad Star Trek episode in its infantile presumption.
Do you honestly consider that textbook answer science? If yes, you need to look long and deep at what you consider valid science.
"Hey, I used ACT words... you can't doubt my science now." Snarf.
Hi Nate. How about disproving what I said...? The evidence is out there, you need only look at it. Just because Star Trek uses science-sounding language doesn't make the actual science wrong.
Comment from: JJ Visitor
Wow those questions were poorly answered. He used the same excuse, "the big bang". So the big bang is like what they believe created everything , and i Believe that theres a creator which is God. Both requires faith, and im sorry i
disagree, Our world does has laws and order and scientifically speaking you cannot get life from non-life! and how bout a scientific law, "matter cannot be creater or destroyed" You just went against science..
Well let's face it, they're poor questions that barely make any sense.
You can get life from non-life.
How do you think an atomic bomb works? The matter is converted into something else, energy. That same energy can also be converted into back into matter, the same way that matter first formed in the universe.
Been reading your creationist "science" books again by any chance?
Comment from: Eli Visitor
Well if God were created He wouldn't be God. Something that evolutionist can not answer is why are there planets that spin in the opposite direction? Remember now..Conservation of Angular Momentum? Now your answer has to be a fact not a guess. Also I find it interesting they believe in the atom, yet they can't see the atom, but they see its effects. God is the same way. I guess it's because their not morally responsible to the atom.
Many many evolutionists keep saying "The fossil record proves evolution." Yet those same "scientists" will later say.."Throw out the fossil record it doesn't prove a thing." Which one is it? Sounds like a bunch of confusion to me.

We are not in the 15th century anymore. Therefore I don't see how the derogatory comment "evolutionist" even exists. As civilization advances, and we become more advanced, more and more people believe in evolution. In fact go ask any proffessor at a highly regarded colledge such as M.I.T. or Cambridge University in England what there belief is. Ask any highly educated person and you might find one in a thousand who doesn't believe in evolution. Yea, I guess I'm saying if you don't believe in evolution in this day in age your not too bright.

I have one question I challenge any creationist to answer. In the supposively "seven days" God was creating everything, according to Genesis, he created the sun and then it says he also created the stars. That might make sense at the time the Bible was written since we didn't know are sun was just another star. But if the Bible is correct than why does it say our sun came before the stars? And one more question. Why does Genesis say "in the begining the earth was dark and without form" and then God said "let there be light". Wait a minute the sun was here before the earth. In fact without the Sun and it's gravity the Earth woule just drift out into space.

Here is another question or two:
1.How do we distinguish between right and wrong, according to evolution? Who decided murder/adultery/theft is wrong? Don't animals do it?
2.What is morality and why do we have it if the animals don't?
3.Where do emotions and feelings come from? Bacteria don't have them?!?!? (If they do, then we murder them everyday...lol)
4.Where are the transitional fossils?
5.Why would anything want to reproduce, if it would lower it's chances of survival because of competition for resources?
6.Who evolved sexual reproduction and with who did he/she/it do it?
7. Why are there still single-celled organisms? Didn't they want to evolve too??
And don't sidestep it like those questions about energy and matter!!
The above has been answered here.

i'm sorry, but people who call creationism crazy but believe in the big bang theory are total morons, it's just as crazy. big bang proves nothing just another flawed thoery
Comment from: Bob Visitor
These are the stupidest answers ever, you've answered all of them in the wrong context!
Gordon Hudson- Dates are man's assumptions, evolutionist assumed the earth was 3 billion years old 50 yrs ago; now, 4.6 billion years old. Dates are not always reliable. and your so called dating methods dont work either!Did you know that people are smarter than animals? if they seen a flood coming they would have fled to higher ground and would have been on top of the ground not underneath, so their remains decayed.

Termites chew on wood and they swallow it, but termites can not digest it. It goes in to their stomach and there is little tiny critters in their intestines that actually digest it. And also, those critters can not live with out those termites, and those termites can not live with out those critters. Which one evolved first?
Comment from: creationist1 Visitor
GOD is the ultimate intelligent designer of the universe. not just by chance. it was created in six days by GOD and any other theory or thought or hypothesis is just that,a thought and any other belief is just an absurd theory that will ultimately be prooved wrong.

Questions that evolutionists can't answer:
What came first, the chicken or the egg? If the egg; what came first, the embryo or the shell?
What came first DNA or the proteins that make up DNA? Since DNA itself contains the code or instructions on how to make more DNA?
Try these simple steps:
1. Google: "how old is mount everest"
2. Google: "how many inches does mount everest grow in one year".
3. 70 million x 2.4 = 168 million
4. Divide by a mile: 168 million / 5,280 = 31,818
5. Mount everest should be 31,818 miles high?

Comment from: rick Visitor
I just have one question for you evolutionist which never seems to get answered. "In the beginning, nothing!" One day nothing exploded!" How do you explain this? How can something exist from nothing?
Comment from: Marvin Visitor
So you know exactly what happened 1.0 × 10-6 seconds after the "big bang"?? wow.. you must have been there then huh?
Or wait.. there must be evidence for that, because if there isn't it must be called a Theory. Aw shucks..
And no questions were answered there. Who is this guy?
Comment from: RIGHTperson(: Visitor
OMG, no one really knows what happened, but we (evolutionists) have quite A LOT of evidence and logic about it, obvioulsy the point of energy grew so intense it had to explode, causing the big bang, and the world is waaay older than 6000 years, right then and there you are basically saying dinosaurs and ancient egyptians etc never existed :/ I am not saying your wrong, but i believe differently, you dont have to say bad things about every other religion and belief just cause you dont believe in them, they could be right you never know, its rude and narrow minded.
Hello RIGHTperson(:. The Big Bang wasn't an explosion.
