Proposition #68

.

Kent Hovind’s “first ever” letter-to-the-editor was

to the Pensacola Journal, was published in October

of 1991, and dealt with a report that 80 million year

old dinosaur bones were found in Montana.

.

– Kent Hovind: Affirm

– Robert Baty: Deny

.

Those who have followed the Kent Hovind story for awhile will recognize his oft-repeated claim about his “first ever letter-to-the-editor” of the Pensacola Journal regarding some alleged dinosaur find.

.

The most recent example of his boasting about that is from his November 21, 2017 BlogTalk Radio performance for American Freedom Watch Radio as shown below.

TRANSCRIPTION (excerpt) from just past the 01:25:20 mark

.

….”dinosaur bones were found in Montana 

from 80 million years ago.”

.

So, I wrote my first ever letter to the editor.

.

– Kent Hovind

– American Statesman Blog Talk Radio

– November 21, 2017

.

Following are screen shots of 3 letters-to-the-editor of the Pensacola Journal that have recently been found in the archives and dated, respectively, August 1990, February 1991, and October 1991. 

.

Transcriptions of the letters may be added later for easier reading.  (Update: 2 of 3 transcriptions have now been added.)

.

It is the latest of the 3 letters, October 1991, that makes reference to a dinosaur find, though it mentions a 150 million year old dinosaur find in Wyoming and not an 80 million year old dinosaur find in Montana.

.

Some might believe that such details/issues are immaterial.

Others don’t.

.

As reflected in the other 67 propositions in my challenge to Kent Hovind, he appears to have a long history of flat out lying about things and refusing to come out, come clean and deal with claims he makes about himself and his history (among other things).

.

So it is that I thought to document this latest of matters for Kent’s consideration and for the consideration of those who have an interest in such things.

Transcription of Friday, August 17, 1990 Letter-to-the-Editor

.

In response to the letter by Fraser Sherman published Aug 4th, it seems clear that Mr Sherman does not know his facts. He said that “creationism has been exposed as a scientific farce time and time again – it’s perfectly respectable as religious doctrine, but has no scientific backing whatsoever.”

.

I taught high school science for 13 yers before moving here last year for my wife to finish her degree. I travel and lecture on this subject (creation, evolution and the Bible) over 200 times a year. I debated the subject last May at UWF. (PJC and Okaloosa-Fort Walton have each refused my offers to debate there). I have beenactive in this study for 21 years.

.

Mr. Sherman seems to have forgotten that it was the “scientific establishment” that taught the earth was flat. The Bible has already stated that the earth was round.

.

The “scientific establishment” has a very long history of being dogmatically, emphatically, zealously wrong! Geocentric theory, doctrine of humors, phlogistin (sic) theory, smooth moon, moon dust layer, heavier objects fall faster, just to name a few.

.

Evolution is not only unscientific, unreasonable, unnecessary and stupid; it is a very dangerous theory. Look at Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot for example. I would like to challenge Mr Sherman (or anyone else) to debate this subject publicly. It is past time to outlaw the teaching of evolution as fact in our schools. “the science isn’t sound.”

Transcription of Wednesday, October 23, 1991 Letter-to-the-Editor

.

Your article in the Oct 8 edition of the PNJ, entitled “Dinosaur dig work completed,” has a gross inaccuracy that needs to be corrected.

.

The article stated that a 150-million-year-old allosaurus was found in Wyoming. It is true that an allosaurus was found in Wyoming, but it was not 150 million years old!

.

No fossils of any kind are more than a few thousand years old.

.

Many dinosaur bones still give off a “bone smell” when cut. Often they are not even completely petrified! Dinosaur bones and footprints have been found with human artefacts (BA – such as iphones?) and footprints. Bones of nearly every type of animal have been found with dinosaur bones.

.

The imaginary great ages of the bones referred to in the article are arrived at by using the geologic column. The fossils are dated by the strata and the strata are dated by the fossils; a clear case of circular reasoning! The fictitious geologic column (the “backbone of geology”) can only be found in the textbooks!

.

No, the bones are not million of years old, Dinosaurs did not live millions of years ago, they have always lived with and been killed by man.

.

There is a tremendous body of evidence to show that a few dinosaurs are still alive in various parts of the world today! There have been several recent expeditions into the Congo swamp where some apatosaurs still live.

.

The Loch Ness monster (probably a pleseosaur (sic)) has been reported by 3,000 people now and over 50 pictures have been taken of the “monster.” I have copies of many of them and speak on this topic all over America 400 plus times a year.

.

People (and textbooks) who claim that dinosaurs lived millions of years go need to get up to date on the research in this area.
