Why Ken Ham's Ark Is In Kentucky Rather Than New South Wales

Recently some fellow Hovindologists encouraged me to look into a tax controversy concerning the Ark Encounter - Ken Ham's full size model of Noah's ark, which must have had a carrying capacity of hundreds of thousands of cubic cubits, but I am too weak at solid geometry to work it out.  

Why I took this as practically an assignment is a foreshadowing I fear of what my obituary would look like if I make it to the New York Times - Peter J. Reilly Leading Authority On The Tax Shenanigans of Youth Earth Creationists.  At any rate, the story was forbes worthy and kind of a nothing to see here folks type of thing.

As I was doing my research, though, an interesting comment popped up from someone I spoke to.  It was that Ken Ham is an Australian.  The speculation is that Ark Encounter is in Kentucky rather than New South Wales or the Northern Territory, because Australians have little patience for the mishegas of young earth creationism. I reached out to sometime Hovindologist Nathan Zamprogno

Nathan is a high school teacher, city councillor, director and actor in Hawkesbury in New South Wales.  New South Wales is my favorite part of Australia.  Not that I have ever been there or anything.  It is because of the song.

Nathan's response was so good that I am making it a guest post. The title above is mine.  Nathan's title is below.  Here you go.


An Australian Apologizes For His Nations Contribution To American Idiocracy 

I find myself frequently apologising to American friends for inflicting Ken Ham on you. He's arguably our most disreputable export, despite the fact that your market for swivel-eyed loonies is already saturated with the likes of Kent Hovind and company.

You ask me if Ham saw more fertile soil for his fairy stories in America than in Australia, and I emphatically concur.

Young-Earth Creationism in Australia is far, far less prevalent than in the U.S. The figures I've sourced suggest a figure of up to 47% of Americans adhere to some form of Young Earth Creationism vs 23%* in Australia when questions phrased like "Do you believe that the Earth is less than 10,000 years old" are put.

How to explain this? To claim a fundamental difference in intelligence or the quality of our respective educational systems in our two great nations would be condescending. I'll leave it to others to unwrap the paradox of why the only nation in history capable of putting men on the moon also believes that the Flintstones is an accurate representation of human/dinosaur cohabitation.

However, as an antipodean, I can speak to the prevailing culture in Australia. I say that the milieu that gave rise to the Scopes trial, or the Kitzmiller trial, or the "Ark Park" is next to impossible in Australia. Our education system is centrally governed, in the sense that there are no local school boards.

Our most recent national Census reports that godlessness is continuing an inexorable rise that has been consistent for decades. 29.6% of Australians now report "no religion", nearly double the figure reported in the 2001 Census†.

No wonder that Ken Ham saw the greater opportunities that lay beyond his own shores, in the same way that a gambler is attracted to the winking lights of Vegas across the desert sands.

It is to be remembered, of course, that Ken Ham felt no filial piety to the organisation he left behind in Australia, formerly known as Creation Science Evangelism, and now as Creation Ministries International. Otherwise close kin to Ham's "Answers in Genesis", CMI was raped and left for dead by Ham when he stole CMI's magazine subscriber's list in 2007 (the magazine that CMI produced for AiG's American readers and a substantial source of income for the Australian operation), and substituted Ham's own in-house publication. Ham's recent ploy of recategorising his outfit as a non-for-profit ministry just so he can avoid paying tax is entirely consonant with Ham's consistently unethical, deceitful, mealy-mouthed modus-operandi. CMI, arguably the largest Creationist outfit in Australia, is a shell... a tiny office in the outer suburbs of Brisbane with speakers who are only welcome in fringe churches. I rarely see their material. I've worked in Christian Schools for nearly 20 years. No school I've ever worked at would stock their materials or publications, and all the Christian schools I've worked at specifically repudiate Young Earth Creationism in their foundational creeds.

There is simply no way an "Ark Park" would ever float in Australia. We would look at it with disbelief, and laugh and laugh, until the proponents simply slunk away in shame.

If I was invited to reflect on the differences of character between Australia and the United States, it would be to say that the Australian character is naturally irreligious as an extension of our national character as a bunch of larrakins, blessed with a refined skepticism, a healthy disdain for those professing an inflated sense of authority, a dry wit, resilience and gift for improvisation.

An Australian literary critic, historian and commentator Robert Hughes once stated "Any Australian political candidate who declared God was on his side would be laughed off the podium as an idiot or a wowser (prude, intrusive bluenose)." I don't think that statement could be said of your countrymen. Further, we've had any number of openly atheist Prime Ministers; five since the end of WW2.

 I'm also reminded of the words of one of our famous authors, Tim Winton.
Australia is such a resolutely irreligious culture.  Given our origins, the European origins of this country, it should be no surprise that Australians are pretty doubtful about men in uniform and authority and suspicious of the church.  In America you can rely on some common religious understandings, some spiritual givens, if you like.  Here the soil is pretty thin and bitter.  There is no religious life without the central necessity of imagination.  That historical Australian hostility to the imagination has wounded our culture, I think.  It's hard writing against that flow, particularly when it's joined and reinforced by the anesthesia of consumerism.
Whether the current American tendency to uncritically accept flim-flam men like Ham, Hovind or Trump is ingrained, or a temporary fever which will pass, is not for me to say, but I can say with the greatest of affection from your Australian brethren, that we are worried about America like never before, and despair almost as much as you at the parlous state of your polity, your civic discourse, and the credulity with which once risible ideas are given mainstream currency.

Impertinent Pete, Domineering Deborah And Kent's Kult Kompound

Domineering Deborah

There is a new breed of Kent Hovind critic emerging.  Unlike many Hovindologists, they are not at all disturbed by the notion that the world is only 6,000 years old and that humans and dinosaurs must have existed contemporaneously.

The Anonymous Webmaster

Most vocal and surprising is Theodore Valentine, who anonymously ran Theo, as Kent used to fondly refer to him,has produced an hour and three quarter documentary warning believers about Kent Hovind

The My Little Pony Fan

The one who gets the style closest to Rudy Davis award is Billy Summer of Whatever with Billy

On the other hand I don't expect Rudy will be covering My Little Pony anytime soon.

I don't have a sense of Billy's views on science and theology, but given that he was drawn to Lenox, Alabama by Kent's videos and his issues with Kent are about Kent's behavior,  I'm assuming that he shares some at least some of the young earth creationist viewpoint.

The Theologian

Joshua Joscelyn is the smoothest of the bunch. He was one of the few people from Pensacola on the street during Kent Hovind's trials in 2015

 He takes Kent on theologically calling him a damnable heretic.

The most colorful of the new breed is Deborah Henderson. I really like Deborah.  And in order to explain that, I need to tell you a bit about myself.

What Being A Hard Core Blogger is Like

I spend a lot of time on-line.  I've got three blogs going and a lot of research goes into many of my pieces.  It gets frustrating because sometimes it is the things that I knock out quickly that get the most traffic, but as it happens I don't make my living blogging, which allows my work to have, at least in my mind, a lot of integrity.  Regardless, someone who placed a tracker on me might think that I am not very sociable, as I can go for days seeing no one other than my partner (both business and life).  I do, however have quite a few friends scattered here and there.

And then there are my "blogging buddies".  My tax blogging is mainly based on my reading of original source material, but I end up contacting a lot of different people and then there are comments on the blog that sometimes lead to other communications and various blogs and facebook sites that I end up following.

Good Friends And Friends That Are Good

Of course, Hovindology is a "blogging buddy" phenomenon.  The only Hovindologists or Hovindicators that I have met in person are Dee Holmes and Jonathan Schwartz.  And, as it happens, I recruited Jonathan who I had known for a long time.  I challenge you to find a better video summary of the Hovind controversy than Jonathan's Dr. Dino: Creationism, Conspiracy, Conceit - The Politics of Wrath.

This is a long introduction to a concept.  "Blogging buddies" are like meat space friends in this sense.  They fall into two categories.  Some of them are, as far as I can tell, very likable people.  I would be very puzzled if somebody had a strong dislike for Kelly Erb, The Tax Girl,  or Joe Kristan, who recently hung up his keyboard and rode off into the sunset of an upstream merger or the Reverend William Thornton, the SBC Plodder.

There are others, however, that much as I like them myself, I totally understand why others might not.  I'm choosing not to name any names.  The self-aware ones know who I mean.

Domineering Deborah

To make a long story short, Deborah Henderson falls in the latter category.  Domineering Deborah has managed a remarkable achievement.  She got kicked out of Kent Hovind's work camp or whatever you want to call it which motivated the launch of a youtube channel, which has been quiet for about a month.

That got her invited to Robert Baty's Kent Hovind's Worst Nightmare! facebook site.  Not long after, Bob made the following announcement.
After receiving feedback from one or more members here, I decided to give Deborah Henderson a rest and removed her from the group.
Truly remarkable - both houses wishing a plague on her.

I think the main problem the Hovindology community had with Deborah was her tendency to lash out when people did not understand what she was about and her practice of giving people handles.  Mary Tocco was the unlearned Jezebel, Billy Summers was Boohoo Billy, Dee Holmes was Deiceitful Dee and I was Pansy Peter.

In Her Own Words

Unlike most others, I sought to get a better understanding of what Deborah's point was.  Also I tested what was behind her tendency to give people handles.  I asked her if she couldn't think of something a little better than Pansy Peter.  She responded with Impertinent Pete, which I kind of like.  I dubbed her Domineering Deborah and she like that too.

DD seems to believe that her audience is not people like me who don't accept the King James Version of the Bible as God's revelation to the English speaking.  We are incapable of understanding her criticisms of Hovind which she frames as a warning to fellow believers.  I have learned to not attempt to restate her positions, since I will probably get them wrong and might end up being Poopyhead Pete.  So I had a bit of an email exchange to clarify where she stands on important issues.

Here is her response:


KJB only in the English language, like Butthurt Baty would say...Affirm
YEC c. 6000.... Affirm
Vaccines.... BAD
Conspiracy Theories...GOOD
Income Tax IRS.... Don't care
Geocentricity..... Affirm
Flat Earth.... Hasn't tickled my fancy to investigate, as of yet...
Yankees vs Red Sox.... Conspiracy


The Yankees/Red Sox thing was a little joke.  If you had lived in New England for a while, you would get it.  I really like her answer.

I also asked her to boil down her issues with Kent Hovind.  She gave me a bonus by also laying out her issues with the Hovindologists that she considers the Booho Buzzard crew.

Peter, you have arrived late in the game and I do not consider you to be part of the Boohoo Buzzard crew. These people initiated insults, name calling, false accusing, then when I hit back they get all offended. This does not seem to be your character. I haven't checked my email for a while and just got to this. Give me a minute and I will do my best to sum it up, I will say, this I have repeatedly stated to them swarm of buzzards, this is not about attacking the Kult Kompound Klan, it is about Biblically exposing a flase teacher, a wolf in sheeps clothing. I did not speak a word until Billy Dolls decided to attack me in a video for speaking truth, now he plays the innocent. 
I do not know where I ever gave the impression that I was hurt or angry at their decision to kick me off the property, I was having a time there, but once again I remind y'all, the 3rd night I was there, the first night after my Husband left, I texted him and clearly said "This is officially a Kult," Kult and his jezebel knew I knew. Once again these buzzards will cherry pick their lies and use their lies to attack those who call them out, such as believing the unlearned jezebels lies about me, but then discredit other lies they told. 
Here is an Open Letter I sent to Butthurt Baty and Them....
May 2, 2017 An Open Letter To Robert Baty And Them: Part 1 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Matthew 7:6 The hypocrisy of this group is exactly the babel I was hoping for, to gather the evidence needed to point out the insanity that you poses is equal to that of Kent Hovind. The main goal of climbing into a snake pit to conspire with snakes was to confirm all snakes are  of their father the devil, an enemy of Christianity, an enemy of the Gospel. Lowering myself to climb into this pit of snakes, has been of great concern by some of my fellow Christians due to God's warning.... 2 Timothy 2:16. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. God himself, whom through His infinite wisdom, has warned us to not do such things, Due to my experience in this world by being King James only and enduring the backlash of so-called Christians that attack me more then any other group, I have developed thick skin on matters of religion. God has blessed me with a wicked sense of humor and discernment to bring truth out to the open. With full support of my husband, I found it not only necessary but beneficial in my testimony exposing Kent Hovind for the false prophet he is, is to mock the mockers and expose the pure hatred for Christianity you and Hovind have in your hearts. Most of you people here are after Hovind for personal reasons for derailing your egos, you must, at any cost, including your own sanity, prove him wrong in his theology of the Young Earth to justify the misguidings you have been taught and indoctrinated into. The Bible is crystal clear on the earth being being c. 6000 years young, that is the one reason most followers of Hovind have blinders on and cannot discern truth of his deceitful ways. A quote from Hitler “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” My goal is to share my testimony and experience on his compound. To warn others of the ungodly ways of the happenings there. I am doing my Biblical duty to expose a false prophet. 1 Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called. One must honestly ask the question, which claim about reality is likely to produce a more harmonious world, if carried out faithfully to its logical end? The assertion "God created man in his own image," representing the Judeo-Christian tradition, or the manifesto by atheist/evolutionist Richard Dawkins, representing the ideological epitome of the atheist movement, "the universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but pointless indifference." 


Other Comments

I asked my favorite Hovindicator, Rudy Davis, for his view on DD.
I don't really know her nor have I ever talked to her. All I heard was that she was living at Dinosaur Adventure Land for free and was asked to leave and got upset and now she is devoting a large portion of her life to helping Theodore's smear campaign against Dr. Hovind.  Other than that, I don't really have any further comment. When I asked Erin if she had anything to say regarding Deborah, she simply said "No Comment". 
Maybe after this post Erin will have something to say on DD's choice of accessorized armament.

 Ernie Land, Kent's consigliere and long time friend wrote me:
Very seriously, I only met her once for maybe 2 hours at a luncheon. That is where she took her photos of me. A volunteer, handicapped and on crutches, had ridden in the passenger seat of my car to the restaurant. This lady moved in front of him insisting she get a ride back and that ladies up front. She started on Kent’s wife calling her a jezebel and asking lots of questions. When we got back to the campus, I told Br. Kent we had a problem in her we were not equipped to handle. Days later I moved to the Board with a request from myself and another Board member to ask her to leave and yes, we graciously offered her bus fare. It was me who speed dialed our Sherriff once they notified me we had an issue. I did so from 80 miles away. It got ugly quick, but it was her rebellion that made it so. She insisted she was a resident, while having signed our terms saying she was not. She wanted hours to pack her 1 small bag of possessions. That’s it, so why is this so important in the scheme of things? It seems to me this is all about spreading lies and gossip on a Ministry that is winning souls and doing a Kingdom work.

Bob Baty wrote me:
Deborah Henderson and her husband Randolf remain mysteries to me.
They appeared, seemingly, out of nowhere with no visible means of support and traveling the country and getting their pictures taken with celebrity, fundamentalist Baptist preachers; while Deborah has accumulated 4,995 "friends" on her FaceBook page.
Deborah has been accused of having a rather "seedy" history, but has not been inclined to actually detail her life story in any meaningful way that might be corroborated to some extent.
Her husband Randolf plays the shy, silent type and, allegedly, was in prison for 20 years or so and, at times (once or more), was transported with Kent Hovind.  Neither Deborah or Randolf, to my knowledge, has made an effort to document that history and I have been unable to find any record of a "Randolf Henderson" with such a history; leading me to the conclusion that "Randolf Henderson" may be a contrived name of some sort to hide his past from scrutiny.
They have become bit players in the Hovind story, and the bit they have played has yet to be fully developed.  Deborah and Randolf, despite my entreaties, have not been inclined to fully explain their involvement in Conecuh County, AL with regard to their efforts, while supporting Kent Hovind, to engage in a seemingly well-orchestrated attack on local publisher of The Monthly View, Jim Allen.
Like others, I wait and watch for the Hovind story to further develop and what, if any, further involvement there might be from Deborah and Randolf Henderson.

Always Remember

I'm not sure what to make of all this and I've got work to do, so I am wrapping it up.  The most important thing that you should keep in mind in all this is that whatever your belief on a particular issue and however misguided you think people with a different belief are, if there should be a disaster in your community, there will be an outpouring of generous support from across this great country of ours.  A significant portion of that support will be from people who believe the opposite of what you believe on creation versus evolution or geocentrism or whatever.  And a significant number of people who agree with you will ignore your plight for a variety of reasons.  Always remember that and try to be kind.

Theodore Valentine's Hovind Documentary - Reactions

When Independent Baptist minister, young earth creationist, convicted felon Kent Hovind (Doctor Dino) was nearing the end of a long prison sentence for tax related crimes, the federal government prosecuted him again.  This time for actions that he had taken with respect to property that had been seized as a result of the first conviction.

A movement to free Kent Hovind arose in response.  Along with some sharp conventional legal work and a bit of juror nullification, the prosecution was foiled and Kent was released on time nearly two years ago.  

The Hovindication movement had two strong pillars on the internet. Rudy Davis put aside other matters, such as questions about the legal qualification of President Obama to serve as President, and made his Lonestar1776 youtube channel all Kent Hovind, all the time.  

The other pillar was the website  You need to go to the wayback machine to see it in all its glory. I tend to look at it as full of Nazi imagery, ridiculous conspiracy theories and logical inconsistencies.  Maybe it is personal because the site one time characterized me as traitor who should be exiled to China - just saying.  Whoever was running remained anonymous during the struggle.

On the other hand, I really appreciated Rudy Davis as a spokesman.  He reminded of Fred Ward's portrayal of Gus Grissom in the Right Stuff.

The administrator of has stepped forward.  It is Theodore Valentine, the mysterious Theo that Kent would sometimes refer in his post release youtube videos.  Kent Hovind has been going great guns on youtube, since his release.  The medium seems to be perfect for him, making me think it could be used as evidence for intelligent design. now points to, which is now something of a Kent Hovind attack site.  Theo has been promising us a documentary exposing Kent Hovind and he finally delivered today with something just over an hour and forty five minutes.

I can't recommend the lifespan investment.  Interlock Media's ten minutes will give you a lot more coherent content.

Overall, I am quite disappointed in Theo's video.  It is really not much better than his website work complete with some Nazi imagery thrown in.  There are some intriguing things about Ernie Land alluded to and matters concerning Kent's alienation from his family.  Theo devotes a lot of time to business issues between himself and Hovind that are typical of the type of disputes that a vendor might have with a difficult customer.

Deborah Henderson tells me that the video is not directed to people like me, but rather to believers who need to be warned about Kent Hovind.  That might account for the emphasis on Kent as unworthy to be an elder particularly in the light of his marriage to Mary Tocco, who Deborah considers an "unlearned Jezebel".

All this is by way of introduction to Rudy Davis's comments on Theo's video.  So one pillar of Hovindication remains firm.

Rudy Davis on "Beware They Are Ravening Wolves"

Peace Peter,

   My wife just returned from Canada and we had a Schaeffer Cox call this morning. From what I saw of Theo's Magnum Opus, I see a bitter man. Theo’s first sentence in the propaganda piece is a lie and it just gets worse from there.  Dr. Kent Hovind is an elder and I believe his efforts are part of a ministry that wins souls for Christ.  Truth does not need Hollywood video and sound effects.  That is what happens in our federal courtrooms when they play slow motion video of exploding grenades and sten machine guns that was never used by Schaeffer Cox.  Hollywood video effects are a magician’s trick to bias and beguile the simple minded.  The Romans 13 quote is completely misapplied and shows Theo’s willingness to bow down to a fraudulent authority which has now resulted in him becoming the spokesman for the devil.  Our authority in this country is not an oppressive government but is “We the People” and our US Constitution.  In Theo’s  lame efforts to “take down” Dr. Hovind, Theo trashed a popular Kent Hovind facebook page administered by my wife which could have been used to advocate for other innocent political prisoners or as a permanent reminder of Christians actually coming together, which in this day and age is extremely rare. Theo also redirected traffic from freekenthovind website to liesofthedevil for his own benefit and then likely changed the name of  his Free Kent Hovind youtube channel as well to Lies of the Devil.  All of this traffic was siphoned from those interested in Kent Hovind, not Theo.  The fact that Theo doesn’t see any problems with this behavior speaks volumes to his character or lack of it.

  I am also grateful for the video plug showing my anger at Obama’s forged birth certificate (Hot or Cold, Rev 3:16). I wish everyone had the same level of anger as I and then Obama would have been held accountable for his proven forgery which landed Lt. Col Terry Lakin in Ft. Leavenworth prison for six months, separated from his children, and the loss of his military benefits after a distinguished career (see:  Let’s put this in perspective….  Obama’s birth certificate has been proven a forgery in two forensic labs on two continents.  Now given that I believe that this is an undisputable fact, I find it very puzzling that people would look at me in bewilderment of how angry I was and how accepting of Obama’s forgery everyone is. Rather than attack my message, Theo tries to discredit me by showing my outburst. That is typical of this world that when you cannot attack the message, then resort to attacking the man.  Rather than get upset that our Commander in Chief is a fraud and has committed a felony, Theo wants to point out how angry the redneck is in the truck?!  That is typical of our apathetic society. The bible said that times would come when they will not endure sound doctrine.

  Also, I still wholeheartedly believe that Kent’s son Eric Hovind did wrong and deceptively raised funds in Dr. Hovind’s name and these funds were not used for their intended purpose. I even have a sworn affidavit from Jeff Utzler regarding this.   In regards to the video my wife Erin and I made about Eric Hovind, I didn’t see any refutation of the content that of that video.  Also, Theo’s playing of looney tunes clip shows that Theo doesn’t understand the difference between the words talk and text.  I highly suspect that Theo was concerned that after Eric saw my video, that Eric would get mad at Theo and either kick him out of DAL or lock him up in the garage.  So, it was from a place of self-interest that Theo was mad that we made that video, not concern for the Hovind family.  Theo likes to paint himself as the guardian of the Hovind family who has abandoned Dr. Hovind, which is laughable.

  It is ironic that I came out long ago against the book “The Shack” before this open feud of Dr. Hovind and Theo.  The book promotes “unconditional forgiveness”, which I do not think is biblical. The main theme is that a parent forgives the murderer of a child without the murderer asking for forgiveness.  Erin and I even did a video on the topic of “unconditional forgiveness” and how this is unbiblical.  Luke 17:3 clearly says that there is a condition upon forgiving our brother which is never brought up in the book “The Shack”.  So, while Kent and I disagree on whether the book is good or not, I don’t feel the need to tear down his ministry because of our difference. We also strongly disagree on the topic of geocentrism, but again, I don’t claim that Dr. Hovind is “evil” because he doesn’t share my world view.   I refuted Jen Fishburne a long time ago regarding her statements about “worse than rape” so I have no further comments on her or her credibility.  All the innuendos and creepy music about Jaworski is so baseless that it doesn’t require a response for the simple minded and immature people who are beguiled in this low-grade propaganda video.
 The idea that somehow Brady Byrum made a financial killing off Dr. Hovind is absurd.  Brady can speak for himself but I stand behind my friend Brady and know Brady to be a man of the highest integrity.  Also, there is nothing wrong with Hovind wanting to get paid millions for his wrongful conviction and incarceration and to have his case overturned and to have the judges and prosecutors held accountable for their wrongdoings.  I admire that Dr. Hovind is still fighting for this to happen and the evildoers to be held accountable and pray that he never gives up that fight until he achieves victory.   Knowing Dr. Hovind, that money from the lawsuit will be used to the glory of God.

   In closing, I will say that God worked a mighty miracle to free Dr. Hovind from prison after 9 years of being wrongfully incarcerated. He sat in a prison cell year after year with little to no attention from the body of Christ and abandoned by even some within his family.  It is also obvious to me that Kent was threatened by an anti-Christian judge with another 20 years for simply mailing a letter.   God used a few selfless souls to come together to make noise and shine light to free Kent and now we are grateful to the Lord to have his unrestrained voice again in the world and speaking up on Kingdom issues instead of muted behind prison bars.  Nothing Theo or any of the bitter, jealous, simple-minded, immature, poodle, snowflake, millennial, moocher, looter or government boot licker can take glory away from God for that victory.  Kent is now free and we will not let you losers put him back in prison.  Get used to Dr. Kent Hovind being a free man once again because I believe the Lord has mighty things in store for the future of Dr. Kent Hovind and his new wife. And praise the Lord God Almighty that the good Lord has blessed Dr. Hovind with a beautiful woman who loves and supports him.  Also, I am no longer puzzled at why such a popular teacher like Dr. Hovind sat year after year after year in a jail cell with little to no public interest.  The body of Christ simply did not deserve the blessing that is Dr. Kent Hovind when we chose to remain silent about his wrongful conviction.  Let us all keep fighting for other innocent political prisoners.  Dr. Hovind is not the only one and we must not allow the losers to slow down our efforts free other unjustly incarcerated brothers and sisters in Christ and give glory to Jesus Christ in the process.
Faithful to Jesus until death,

Another County Heard From

Just as I was getting ready to wrap this, I heard from Robert Baty, Kent Hovind's most indefatigable critic.  Here is what Bob has to say

My comments, for what they are worth to you, are limited in scope.  Others, including yourself, have a lot more professional insight into such things and will/have offered evaluations.

I think that Theo's documentary is a valuable addition to the continue Hovind story, and one must realize, to some extent, the sort of people that will be attracted to work for Hovind, such as Theo.  We have to accept the baggage they bring with them if they should "flip" as Theo has.

I think there is a certain "consciousness of guilt", on some level, in the way Theo has been prosecuting his cause against Kent; without regard to the merits of his criticisms of Kent.

As far as I can tell, Theo remains very much a "mystery" man because he has yet to fully present his own history and that of his wife.  

He seems to be the same as Theodore Valenzuela who was extensively discussed in my former FaceBook groups.

Did he legally change his name to Valentine?
What's the story on that?

So many details are missing from his resume.

He seems to have traveled freely with Kent as Kent tried to set him up with Russian/Ukrainian women, with some success but only, apparently, temporarily.

Same goes for Lenae?
What's her resume look like and just how did she get hooked up with Theo?

It is also my opinion that no documentary on Kent would be complete without an adequate discussion of my part in his evolving story.

I did not hear/see anything in Theo's documentary that proposed to present my part in the Hovind story.

Yet, he mentioned you, Peter, Rudy Davis, Jen Fishburne, Wyatt Mickas, Billy Summers & Mark Hill.

Why does Theo not want to talk about me and my part in the Hovind story?
Is it because of his own part in the Hovind attack on me?
