CHRISTIAN CREATION SCIENCE KENT HOVIND TEACHES THE EVOLUTION THEORY
DARWINISM VERSUS CREATION SCIENCE’S ‘BIBLICAL EVOLUTION’
Many churches disseminate the teachings of Christian Creation Science teachers such as Kent Hovind as absolute Bible Truth. Creation Science has emerged as an ‘alternative’ explanation to the dinosaur-dilemma and truly Biblical views of the Genesis-creation.
The well-known evangelist and masonic preacher Billy Graham also supported ‘creation science’ and declared, “…Whether it came by an evolutionary process [or creation,] whichever way God did it makes no difference as to what man is and man's relationship to God."
Can sincerely born again believers in Christ really believe such a lie?
Sadly, many do.
What’s more, while the well-known Creation Science, (answers-in-genesis) disciple Kent Hovind alleges that his mixture of some Biblical verses with the evolution theory proves ‘evolution a massive lie,’ he actually uses the lie of evolution to ‘prove’ his many Christianized evolution fallacies.
In this way, Hovind and Company are leading thousands of gullible Christians astray.
Consequently, this much needed article exposes the Masonic-Darwinist teachings of evolution, which also support the very unbiblical theories of Creation Science.
God commands us in His Word to ‘test every spirit, to see whether they are of God, because many false prophets [and teachers] have gone out into the world.’ – 1 Jn. 4:1; 1 Ths. 5:21.
So, if it is not in the Book of Genesis and in the whole context of the Bible, it’s not true!
We do not have to speculate whether dinosaurs walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden in Eden, because, in the Book of Genesis, God explained exactly when and what type of life He created here on earth, and the entire context of the Bible confirms Gods’ account!
Thus, we have to conclude that, if the teachings of Creation Science and Hovind add to, twist, or omit God’s account of creation, and if their teachings do not fit into the whole context of Biblical truth, we have to do with a strange, dangerous spirit!
CREATION SCIENCE DOCTRINE IS AN ADAPTATION OF ISAAC VAIL, DARWIN, AND BAUGH
High school ‘science’ teacher and well-know preacher, Kent Hovind, has taken the Christian world by storm with his ‘flat earth,’ and ‘dinosaur eggs in the ark’ tales. He alleges, ‘Dinosaurs were alive 400 years ago, and I have the evidence to prove that they are still alive today!” Sounds like an oxymoron to me; ‘were alive... still alive…’ But then, as we will discover, Hovind’s teachings are full of self-contradictions, and more horrendously, contradictions to Scripture.
Christians might choose to ignore Hovind’s unscriptural ramblings and ‘unorthodox’ statements, which, untested, seem logical to many gullible believers. However, the number of Christians he affects necessitates a closer look at his wild Creation Science theories.
To attempt to separate Creation Science fiction from Darwinism would sound something like this: (in Hovind’s words,) “[In Eden…] lizards became [or in evolution terms, evolved into] dinosaurs... But now the genes for largeness are gone somehow!” No, wait! “Evolution teaches, all the dinosaurs evolved from a single cell that came to life during ‘the big bang,’ and they all went extinct in a meteor storm millions of years ago — or no, some evolved into crocodiles and lizards, as the genes for largeness are gone somehow!” “No,” Hovind argues, “actually, they all drowned in the flood of Noah, but some are still alive today!” Wow! All Drowned… some are still alive….????
Christian Science disciple Hovind is a fraud and an extremely false teacher, and so, ‘Way of Life Literature’s Fundamental Baptist Information Service’ and many other writings warn, ‘BEWARE OF KENT HOVIND’S NEW EVANGELICAL PHILOSOPHY!’
Creation Science is a cultic religion, foreign to the truth of Scripture, which is an adaptation of Darwin’s masonic religion of evolution and the non-sustainable hydrogen theory of Isaac Vail and Carl E. Baugh. Baugh alleged that earth was ‘encapsulated’ by a massive layer of ‘metallic hydrogen’ that created a ‘glass house effect.’ Hovind changed that illogic hypothesis to a ‘double layer of ice,’ but later decided it was like Vail alleged, a ‘canopy of water,’ while he kept to the ‘dinosaur’ theory of freemason/illuminist Darwin and Baugh.
“Baugh was the founder of the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, Texas, and host of TBN's Creation In The 21st Century. Baugh insisted that the earth was created in 3987 B.C. and surrounded by a canopy of metallic hydrogen before the flood. Baugh believes the stars literally sing and that all dinosaurs were herbivores even after Adam’s fall.” – [‘Realms of Faith, Christian Author’s Database.’]
HOVIND’S EARTH WAS A FREEZER, NOT A GREENHOUSE
Hovind: “Earth’s atmosphere has 6 layers, [no, earth’s atmosphere has FIVE layers!] but apparently there used to be a 7th layer… [Where is any evidence of this?] which created a greenhouse effect around the earth… ICE held up by earth’s magnetic field, as well as ICE under the crust of the earth, created a green-house effect, that’s why everything grew huge in Eden…”
What? Ice underneath the earth? The deeper one digs, the hotter earth gets! No crust of ice there, that’s for sure! It is a fact that the core of the earth is scorching hot, because multitudes of volcanoes brew inside the earth. It is impossible to place a ‘layer of ice’ on top of such immense heat.
Later, old self-contradicting Hovind forgets about the double layer of ICE and states, “A canopy of WATER overhead increased air pressure which allowed trees and other vegetation, insects and reptiles to grow larger, as insects breathe through their skin…” No Hovind, what kind of ‘science’ teacher are you? Insects do not breathe through their skin, but through special openings in their bodies. And no! Insects do not have skin. They have an exoskeleton that does not nearly represent skin, like mammals have.
Actually, God said in Genesis 1:6-10 that He divided the waters of the ground from those of the air – God Himself created an atmosphere and a stratosphere, which spans from 9–60 km. above the earth. The Word of God does NOT speak of, or even suggests a ‘7th layer,’ ‘metallic hydrogen,’ or ‘two layers of ice,’ which supposedly ‘encapsulated’ life on earth! If two thick layers of ‘ice’ encapsulated life on earth, life would have been in a freezer, not a greenhouse! Just think of a cloudy day; now multiply that cold, sunless day by a thousand! Sandwiched between two thick layers of ice, life on earth would have been unbearable! Hovind’s earth would have been a dark, ice-cold, uninhabitable, dead planet. [See ‘The Vapor Canopy Hypothesis Holds No Water,’ Paul Farrar an Bill Hyde.]
Rich Deem wrote in ‘The Water Vapor Canopy Theory, Why the Bible (And Science) Says It is False,’ “[Freemason] Isaac Vail (1840 –1912) first proposed the canopy theory in 1874. He believed a canopy formed millions of years ago as the earth evolved from a molten state. Vail supported his case primarily by ancient Babylonian mythology.”

SOME OF HOVIND’S ABUSE OF SCRIPTURE LANDED HIM IN PRISON
A contextual study of Scripture and just a little knowledge of real scientific facts, (of which evolution is NOT one,) discredits nearly all of Hovind’s unbiblical teachings, from which Hovind made millions of dollars, and even built his own ‘Jurassic Park.’
Currently, Hovind is serving a 10-year prison sentence for tax evasion. Many charismatic leaders follow his example, and state that the government ‘has nothing to do with their finances, because they answer only to God.’
Most importantly, one has to remember that these teachers and preachers did not work for that money in the first place! Through their uncontextual abuse of the Old Testament law and other Scriptures, they extorted their millions from the poor, from widows, and from brainwashed Christians! [See ‘New Testament Tithing and Excessive Giving is a gospel of Greed.’]
Just like the get-rich-quick tithing scammers, Hovind also distorts and abuses God-given Scripture, and gathered millions of dollars from gullible Christians! His answer-only-to-God teaching, by which he raises himself above reproof and accountability, is another dangerous fallacy.
Our Lord Jesus Christ commanded, ‘Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, [physical taxes, etc.,] and to God the things that are God’s,’ (Mt. 22:21.) And Peter wrote in 1 Pt. 2:13, ‘Submit yourselves to every [non-Scriptural violating political] ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king… or to governors… For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men…’
REAL SCIENTIFIC FACT ABOUT HOVIND’S “GENES THAT JUST GO”
Whichever way the dinosaurs supposedly ‘went extinct,’ the Creation Science theory of lizards that became dinosaurs, and dinosaurs that became lizards remains the evolution theory exactly!
Biblically, logically, and throughout human memory and recorded history, it also remains a fact that God created everything on earth according to their own KINDS… Then, He commanded everything to multiply according to their own, unchangeable, specific ‘genetic codes,’ genes, or KINDS!
Still, Darwinism and ‘Christian Creation Science’ teacher Kent Hovind allege that “genes, [which God Himself had created and commanded to remain unchanged,] can go, get lost and change” - thus ‘evolving’ or ‘changing’ one species into another, while the ‘original’ species remains the same!
Wikipedia Encyclopedia explains, “Genetic information is carried by a long molecule called DNA and this DNA is copied and inherited across generations. Traits are carried in DNA as instructions for constructing and operating an organism. These instructions are contained in segments of DNA called genes. DNA is made of a sequence of simple units, with the order of these units spelling out instructions in the genetic code. This is similar to the orders of letters spelling out words. The organism "reads" the sequence of these units and decodes the instruction.” Generic code can never ‘evolve’ to ‘change’ one species into a completely different species! Not suddenly or even gradually — not even in ten million billion years! God said so, and God is the Creator of everything that lives!
It is a real scientific fact that not even a single rose can become a lily – ever!
Darwinism or the theory of evolution is not scientific!
Evolution is not even logic.
More importantly, this silly teaching remains completely unproven.
As we will see in this study, evolution ‘evidence’ was pre-fabricated to prove something that either never did, still do not, or will never exist. So, what lies beneath this incredibly false teaching, which is permeating every sphere of ‘science,’ biology, pagan religions, and even Christianity?
Well, let us see. If it’s not truly scientific and logic, and if it’s not in the Book of Genesis and in the whole context of the Bible, the creators of the evolution theory and those who ‘Christianized’ it, (such as Creation Science and their diligent disciple Kent Hovind,) has an evil, antichrist agenda! In fact, their agenda is not merely an ‘alternative’ way to view creation — as if that isn’t bad enough! It is an alternative religion, designed to draw millions of people away from the true Creator God of the Bible and the Author of salvation, His Son Jesus Christ. Evolution is in fact an anti-god, anti-creation, freemasonry religion!
BIBLICAL FACTS THAT REFUTE EVOLUTION AND THE FAMOUS PREACHERS THAT TEACH THIS LIE
Not Darwin’s ‘coincidental big bang,’ but God Himself created His universe very precisely. Yet, just as in Darwinism, Creation Scientist Kent Hovind’s earth was ‘originally’ nearly flat, as “mountains did not exist before the flood of Noah.” However, the real Genesis account of creation, Amos 5:8 and the whole context of the Bible declare that, in the beginning, the Creator God of the Bible “made the cluster of stars called Pleiades and the constellation of Orion. He measured the waters of the earth in His hand, metered out heaven with a span, caught the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains on scales...” (Isa. 40:12-26; Mt. 10:29.)
Similarly, not Darwin’s ‘big bang,’ ‘accidental evolutionary process,’ ‘gradual adaptation,’ ‘biological engineering over millions of years,’ nor Hovind’s ‘dinosaurs in Eden’ and the ‘genes for largeness that are gone somehow,’ but the Creator God Himself made every existing and living thing in the universe exactly as we see it now.
Then, God Himself commanded every living thing to multiply strictly according to their kinds, or according to their specific ‘genetic codes.’ God Himself, the Mastermind behind all creation, wrote these codes into every living thing, ensuring that nothing would ever be able to ‘change’ into another creature. It is Biblically, scientifically, and logically completely impossible for a single cell to suddenly come to life ‘all by itself’ to ‘create itself’ into an incredibly complex organism such as a tree or a human. In fact, where could even a single living cell come from, if a Most Intelligent Being did not make it? It remains a truly scientific and Biblical fact that no one, except God Himself, can give life to even the most microscopic organism. [Read about humanity’s gross abuse of God’s marvelous, unseen worlds of atoms, sub-atomic particles, bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi in the book, ‘Witchcraft – (pagan & Christian,) what is that?’]
It is even more bizarre to believe that a single, unintelligent cell or a ‘single cell life form’ ‘eventually’ ‘evolved’ or created itself into a living entity such as a tree or ape. More unbelievably, it then allegedly began to ‘adapt,’ ‘change,’ and multiply itself into millions of completely different, incredibly complex, and most intelligent species. Then, after ‘millions and millions of years,’ in which millions of species supposedly evolved into what they are now, they have never changed into something entirely new, or created even one minute form of entirely new life again. For instance, although rats have supposedly been ‘evolving’ for ‘millions of years,’ they are still plain old rats. Why is this so? As in the case of the ‘missing link’ between humans and apes, real genetic ‘links’ that allegedly allows one species to ‘evolve’ into another simply do not exist.
A sustainable dog-ape was never born. Under unnatural circumstances in captivity or other forms of isolation, animals of the same species might interbreed, but that is as far as it goes. (Like horses and donkeys, which produce the infertile old mule!)
Genes, which God has created, can never and will never ‘change’ to form a different species, simply because God ordered it so! The real scientific fact is that from the beginning of time until the end of the ages, everything could and can only reproduce strictly ‘after their own kind!’
GENESIS ONE, VERSES ONE AND TWO
‘In the beginning,’ according to Gen. 1:1, only God’s dwelling place heaven, and planet earth existed in God’s infinite expanse, the universe. Initially, according to Gen. 1, earth was the only planet in the never-ending cosmos of the ever-living God. Like God’s dwelling place, heaven, planet earth existed without the concept of literal time.
In Gen. 1:2, the Spirit of God hovered over this empty, chaotic earth, which was overflowed with water. Earth was dark; there existed no night and day; summer and winter, or dry ground.
There were no stars to surround the planet yet. No sun to give it heat and life, and no moon. Planet earth was dead; submerged in water and without an atmosphere.
There were no air, wind, clouds, mist, or rain.
Earth was a place on which not a speck of physical life could exist.
Strong's Concordance, #8414, describes the chaos on earth as follows, ‘A formless, chaotic mess, a waste, a worthless thing, emptiness, and desolation, for no purpose, for nothing.’ The Spirit Filled Bible explains, ‘This word first occurs in Gen. 1:2, ‘The earth was without form [tohu] and void [bohu.] Tohu and its rhyming synonym bohu are coupled to describe a scene of disorder, confusion, and lack of arrangement. However, the Lord brought order OUT OF chaos, as our present Earth testifies. Elsewhere ‘tohu’ refers to a howling waste, a trackless wilderness, a scene of utter disarray, and barrenness. Tohu suggests ‘sheer emptiness’ as opposed to order and balance.’
Gen. 1:3 – God created the first literal day on earth:
On the first day of the first month, in the very first year on earth, God gave His first creative command on this dark, flooded planet.
Gen. 1:3-5 describes the dawning of the very first day as follows, ‘THEN God said, ‘Let there be light…’ and God divided the light from the darkness… God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. So [this] evening and [this] morning, [in which God created light,] was the first [24 hour] day…”
A literal day cannot exist in infinity. So, on the first day, God created light by ‘dividing the light from the darkness.’ He allotted a time-designation to the light, calling it Day, and a time-designation to the darkness, calling it Night. Consequently, God created literal time here on earth. However, the first literal day on earth was not the type of day we can identify with. The sun, moon, and stars, (the other planets,) did not exist, and so, this concept of literal time in the space between light and darkness is a notion that is incomprehensible to us, as we are God’s physical creations from a different day in Genesis.
The footnote, S.F. Bible confirms, “This time designation, along with the numbering of the days… shows the writer [of Genesis] views creation as happening in the course of six consecutive 24-hour periods.”
Gen. 1:6, the second literal day
THEN God said, ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, [a space between the surface of the waters that covered the earth and the clouds above,] and let it divide the waters from the waters. Thus, God made the firmament, [the heavens - the atmosphere and stratosphere,] and divided the waters, which were under the expanse, [waters that covered the earth,] from the waters, which were above the expanse… [God created mist and clouds.] So the evening and morning was the second day…
Gen. 1:9, the third literal day
THEN God said, ‘Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear…’ and He called the dry land Earth… And the accumulated waters He called Seas…’
Hence, it is clear that the oceans were not ‘underneath the earth,’ as Hovind alleges, not in the beginning, neither at the flood of Noah!
