Quotes

Penn Jillette: Take some time and put the Bible on your summer reading list. Try and stick with it cover to cover. Not because it teaches history, we've shown you it doesn't. Read it because you'll see for yourself what the Bible is all about, it sure isn't great literature. If it were published as fiction, no reviewer would give it a passing grade. There are some vivid scenes and some quotable phrases, but there's no plot, no structure, there's a tremendous amount of filler and the characters are... ...

Ever heard of "Kent Hovind"???
5 April 2014 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

These two childish ninnies can believe whatever they want - but they're plain WRONG!

The wheels on the bus go "scoff-scoff-scoff, scoff-scoff-scoff, scoff-scoff-scoff" all through every town. but the historical accuracy of the Bible continues to be confirmed by archaeological finds. Many Arabs deny Jewish roots in Israel, claiming that the idea of a historical Jewish homeland is a hoax, An archaeologist named Eilat Mazar however, has uncovered in East Jerusalem, what may well be the palace of King David 2 Samuel 5:9-11.Mazar found the ruins of an immense 3,000- year-old stone structure. Inside the building they uncovered pieces of pottery dated 1000 BC, the time of David & Solomon. Mazar also uncovered a "bulla", a government seal, belonging to Jehucal son of Shelemiah, mentioned in Jeremiah 37 In the New Encyclopedia of Archaeological Excavations in the Holy Land there are over 3,000 illustrations, maps, charts and diagrams; chronological tables; bibliographies relating to Jewish history. Need I detail NT archeology of Herod, Pontias Pilate etc?

Hey for your information, "smart ones", Jesus did exist, no historian doubts his existence. In fact, you can read Roman historians talking about Christ, and his Crucifixion, no one back then doubted his existence, just if he was the son of G-d , or not. Why don't you start with Tacitus's writings in "Annals", it confirms that Jesus was executed by Pontius Pilate during Tiberius' reign. Or try Josephus, who said he was "perhaps" the messiah because of his works. There is more evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ than there is for the existence of Caesar. If He didn't rise from the dead, the Roman authorities could've produced His body when His disciples said He in fact had risen. The Romans didn't do it simply because they DIDN'T have the body! It's amazing how many atheists pound religion but they themselves are willing to believe heir own fantasies. People believe what they want to believe. G-d doesn't owe anybody any proof.

You think monkeys and snails and lizards and stromatolite ROCKS are in your family tree??? HAHAHA Neanderthal is only an aged human fossil. The back hunches after a few hundred years. Man's eyebrows never stop growing, even today. The big brows on Neanderthal are evidence of old age. People lived longer on an abundant Earth!

Atheists have such hatred for people who don't buy into the evolution myth. They seem to think childish ridicule & personal attacks are the best way to get their message across. It is notable how much similarities militant atheism & Islam share with each other: both put forth a rather anti-Christian stance, by even meaning & morality. Even going by extreme measures as to slaughtering millions of people. And both eventually lead to the same thing: Totalitarianism!

Dr. Kent Hovind is professional, compared to these two! He is well-researched on his topics. He is objective. His series is the best presentation I have ever found on the topic of Evolution/Creation. He does not delve into endless speculation, or digress into worthless personal opinion, as so many others do (ex. - whenever u hear a person resort to the phrase, "Well, I just think that so & so," then you are being fed personal opinion, not fact) but he simply separates himself from the most abundant evidence & detaches himself from man-handling the Word of G-d so as to not stand in judgment of either one beforehand.

Dr. Hovind has a comedic personality and is very interesting. I just love watching these videos because he really challenges your mind, & make you think. You may not agree with everything he says but that is what is amazing about him; he gives INFO and let's the watcher choose what info they take as truth. He never shoves anything down your throat; just gives you FACTS. His videos changed my life because now I serve G-d by faith and logic. I can't say enough good things about Kent. Anyone searching for truth needs to watch these videos!!!!

1/10
