Creation Seminar Came to Cork
Hovind grew up in East Peoria, Illinois, the United States, which is 150 miles
south of Chicago. His keen interest in math and science prompted him to enroll
at Illinois Junior College with a Science major. After two years of
undergraduate work there, he transferred to Midwestern Baptist College in
Pontiac, Michigan where he completed his bachelor of Religious Education degree
the next fifteen years, Dr. Hovind taught secondary school math and science
classes. During that same time, he completed his Masters in Education degree in
1988 from Patriot University in Colorado Springs, Colorado. And, in 1991, he
received his Ph.D. in Education from the same university.
working on his Ph.D. doctrinal dissertation, Dr. Hovind recognised the need of
exposing the teaching of evolution as a dangerous, religious world-view, and
that people need to be equipped with the scientific evidence that there really
are no contradictions between true science and the Bible. His doctrinal
dissertation turned out to be on the subject of Biblical Creation verses
Evolution, and the effects that teaching evolution has on students.
1991, Dr. Hovind began Creation
Science Evangelism - an organisation dedicated to exposing the
scientific fallacies of the theory of evolution, and the scientific accuracy of
the biblical record. Dr. Hovind currently speaks over 600 times each year to
audiences in schools, churches, and universities, as well as on the radio, and
on television programs. He has been extensively interviewed, and debated. He has

400,000 videos of his seminars so far. His humorous, fast-paced,
illustrated seminars provide fully documented evidence against the unscientific
theory of evolution. The information presented concerning dinosaurs reflects his

written in text books, but not in the earth.
The philosophy of evolution strongly motivated the ideologies that
brought about World War I and II.

Hovind has a complete range of fossils, and actual dinosaur artifacts, as well
as replicas of dinosaur items like tyrannosaurus-rex teeth and claws, a velociraptor
claw, a pterosaur skull, and a stegosaur plat and tail spike - all
of which are accessible by the attendees of his lectures.
Hovind has a long standing offer
of $250,000 (£200,000) for anyone with empirical evidence (scientific proof) in
favour of evolution.
He has debated dozens of University professors all across the U.S. clearly
showing that evolution is still only a theory, and a poor one at that!
Hovind lives in Pensacola, Florida with his wife, Jo, and their three teenagers.
is the Seminar?
“Creation, Evolution, and Dinosaurs” Seminar is a two hour program that
examines both sides of the origins debate: Evolution, and Creation. Dr. Kent
Hovind, Ph.D. conducts the program using a multimedia presentation, as well as a
hands on display containing a large assortment of artifacts and reference
materials for people to be able to see for themselves what scientists are
talking about when they deal with evolution, and the theory of origins.
What is the purpose of the Seminar?
vast amount of information and scientific evidence clearly contradicts the
modern evolutionary theory models, and actually supports the Genesis account of
creation, and the flood. Most people are only aware of what evolution teaches,
and are forced to reject the basic foundation of science - that of observable
laws. Evolution is not based upon verifiable science, but rather on a series of
religious-like beliefs that are neither scientific, nor rational. The seminar
will pleasantly document the true nature of the evolutionary belief of origins,
and that of creationary belief of origins, so that the audience can better make
up their own minds based on evidence, and not suppositions.
What happens at the Seminar?
seminar begins with Dr. Hovind stating who he is, and where he stands as a
Creation Scientist. He will then proceed to explain both theories of origins
with constant and direct references to the facts that either support or reject
each theory. Dr. Hovind taught science and math in the public school system in
America for 15 years, and has developed a witty, and enjoyable method of
communicating what would otherwise be a hard to grasp subject.
there is time, at the end of the Seminar, Dr. Hovind will attempt to answer a
few questions from the audiences, in order to clarify issues that may still be
in people’s minds.
will be a large table with books and other materials for interested people to
purchase that will thoroughly document and expose the fallacies of the
evolutionary theory, and present the scientific basis for the instantaneous
Creation of all things.
What Do Creation Scientists Believe?
who call themselves “creation scientists” are professionals, typically with
advanced degrees from major universities, who are generally involved in the same
types of work as the average scientist. The difference is that creation
scientists have a “world-view”, or “model” for their science which is
based on the belief that an intelligent designer (“God”) exists who created
our universe and the natural things in it. The creation events were one-time
events and are not taking place today. A large subset of creation scientists
could be called “Biblical creationists”, who take the first eleven chapters
of the Bible to be real history, including the creation of all things in six
24-hour days, the existence of Adam and Eve as the first man and woman, the
unnatural introduction of “death” into the perfect creation because of the
disobedience of Adam and Eve, and the occurrence of a world-wide flood (Noah’s
flood) which destroyed most life and greatly affected the processes operating on
the earth. Most creation scientists believe that the earth is “young” (on
the order of ten thousand years). Biblical creationists believe that the Bible
and true science are in full harmony with each other.
During His Presentation On “Creation,
Evolution, and Dinosaurs”
following subjects are dealt with by Dr. Hovind:
That the earth is not billions of years old - he exposes it’s young age
by looking at the rapid decay of the earth’s magnetic field, the short limit
of time that so much pressure could exist in natural gas, and oil mines, and
many other verified scientific observations.
That science is supposed to be all about facts and laws, and not just
theories and assumptions that are completely unverifiable.
That dinosaurs did not live millions of years ago, but have always lived
with mankind, are mentioned in the Bible, and probably are still live today in
some remote areas.
That the so-called ‘geologic column’ is a hoax -- it can only be
found written in school text books, but not in the earth. He will demonstrate
that the majority of geological columns are the result of a world-wide
That the teaching of the theory of evolution is dangerous to the
world-view of both students and adults - it was the motivating source of World
Wars I and II, and racism.
That the description of the creation of our universe as presented in the
Bible is both true and trustworthy - he easily shows the fallacy of
evolution’s theories for the origin of matter and life in the universe by
simple and verifiable scientific methods.
audience, ages 12 and up will easily enjoy and understand Dr. Hovind’s
explanations of this important subject.
Dr. Hovind’s presentations help listeners:
His well-documented evidence
helps people develop a world-view founded upon true science (one that looks at
all the facts without bias), instead of upon luck, chance, and accidents.
His explanations help people to
simply be more aware of the scientific value of Creation Science as opposed to
only hearing the evolution side of the origins of the universe debate.
The topic of evolution verses
creation science is hotly contested in the science classrooms these days because
of all the questions surrounding the supposed “facts” behind evolution, and
how the evidence really does seem to point toward an instantaneous
creation, and then a later world-wide catastrophic flood.
Teachers and parents alike are
concerned about the subliminal evolutionary world-view that has permeated the
school textbooks, and the so-called “documentary” television programs that
end up teaching children that they are only accidents, and mistakes, and not in
control of their destiny because of genetic programming, and therefore not ever
responsible for their actions.
