http://www.fallensword.com/?ref=443050 Evangelist Kent Hovind became a Christian at age 16 and immediately desired to serve Christ with his life. For 15 years, he taught high school math and science, during which time he completed his master's degree in education. While researching and writing his doctoral dissertation on the subject of creation versus evolution, he saw the tremendous need for exposing evolution as a dangerous, religious worldview, and for arming Christians with scientific evidence that there are no contradictions between true science and the Bible. In response to these goals, shortly after finishing his Ph.D. in education, he began the full-time ministry of Creation Science Evangelism. Since its beginning in 1989, Dr. Hovind's ministry continues to grow as he has spoken more than 900 times each year in public and private schools, churches, university debates, and on radio and television broadcasts. His humorous, fast-paced, illustrated seminars provide documented evidence against the unscientific theory of evolution that goes against Scripture. The information presented concerning dinosaurs in the Bible (including a few that are living today) reflects his extensive study in the field of cryptozoology. Dr. Hovind's mission is to strengthen the faith of believers, to confound and to convince the evolutionists, and to win the lost to Christ. Dr. Hovind makes his home in Pensacola, Florida with his wife, Jo. Their three married children also live in Pensacola. All three and their spouses work in the ministry. A Bristle cone pine is approximately 4,300 years old—dated via tree rings. The method may not be perfect, but it is the best we have for dating trees. The Great Barrier Reef is less than 4,200 years old—dated via measuring the growth rate for 20 years. Even though both are less than 5,000 years old, they are the two oldest-living organisms on earth. Their ages easily fit the creationist point of view, but leave loose ends for the evolutionist. Why aren't there older trees or bigger reefs? With the evolutionist time line, surely something is closer in age to their "millions of years." Evolution doesn't fit the facts, does it? Prevailing winds are caused by two phenomena. The sun's heat causes north-south or south-north winds, depending on latitude. The rotation of the earth causes the winds to shift east or west, clockwise north of the equator and counterclockwise to the south. This Coriolis effect is proportional to the speed of the earth's rotation: the greater the rotational speed, the greater the Coriolis effect. Due to these prevailing winds, the Sahara Desert is in the process of desertification, expanding approximately four miles per year. Calculations based upon the rate of the Sahara's expansion show the desert to be 4,000 years old. This young age of the Sahara Desert fits quite well in the creationist time line, beginning its desertification process soon after the global Flood. The current slowing rate of the earth's rotation, and its relationship with the Coriolis effect, allows for a variety of climates around the world without creating a menacing environment. Following the evolutionist time line over a period of millions of years, the Sahara Desert should have already expanded to its maximum size. However, since the earth's rotational speed is decreasing measurably, the Coriolis effect would have been far greater millions of years ago, exacerbating the evolutionists' difficulty explaining the Sahara Desert's young age. In 1810, a billion people lived on earth. the population hit six billion. This fits the biblical chronology perfectly as the current population started about 4,400 years ago with Noah and his family after the Flood. An evolutionary time line would require not only a nearly non-existent growth rate but also three trillion deceased humans within the last million years. Studies over the past 140 years show a consistent decay rate in the earth's magnetic field. At this rate, in as few as 25,000 years ago, the earth would have been unable to support life because of the heat from the current. After Charles Lyell published his Principles of Geology in the 1830s, society began accepting the theory that the earth and mankind evolved from a previous lesser state. Lyell used Niagara Falls as one of his illustrations to promote uniformitarianism. He estimated that Niagara Falls was 10,000 years old. He did this to try to discredit the Bible. Skeptics like Lyell leave out one important factor in their calculations, a worldwide Flood, approximately 4,400 years ago.
