Prominent creationist and wife jailed for fraud.

barney.gifCreationism. You’ve just gotta love it. You’ve especially gotta love Ken Hovind, the creator of the ‘Creation Science Evangelism and the Dinosaur Adventure Land‘ creationist theme park in Florida, designed expressly to rubbish Darwinism and put whitey back at the top of the food-chain.
In addition to re-writing the history books, it appears that Hovind was also busy re-writing his account books.
Nicole Lozare reports:

‘Pensacola evangelist and tax protester Kent Hovind winked at his wife and gave her a reassuring smile as he was led away to jail.
Jo Hovind clutched the necktie he had been wearing. She kept her eyes on her husband until he was out of sight.
A 12-person jury deliberated for 2½ hours on Thursday before finding the couple guilty of all counts in their tax-fraud case.
Kent Hovind, founder of Creation Science Evangelism and Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola, was found guilty of 58 counts, including failure to pay $845,000 in employee-related taxes. He faces a maximum of 288 years in prison.
Jo Hovind was charged and convicted in 44 of the counts involving evading bank-reporting requirements. She faces up to 225 years in prison but was allowed to remain free pending the couple’s sentencing on Jan. 9.’

  1. You paint with too wide a brush. Hovind is someone who tied himself to the creationist wagon, but was never welcomed with open arms by the creationist community. If you intend to do serious reckoning with creationists, do it with someone of stature. Not a tax-evading weirdo.
