Redefining CSE Blogs's Purpose

Thank you for reading and posting on www.cseblogs.com   This site was created in 2006 in order to publish news concerning Dr. Kent Hovind’s life and the legal battle he faces.  Updating the CSE blog audience with information concerning his October 2006 trial, his sentencing, and his current prison outreach, and legal updates is the site’s purpose.  This blog site was not intended to fill the role of a place for a difficult creation-evolution debate.

Each day, CSE receives many creation science questions from people who have not watched the seven-part series.  We try to answer these questions, often by pointing them to the answers already addressed in the creation series.  It takes about 17 hours to view all 8 DVDs in the series and contains a plethora of quality material to study and assimilate.  It may be found at the following site.

Our mission, to reach the world with the creation message, remains the motivation of the CSE Team.  Thus, realizing the monumental importance of the creation message, the CSE Team continues the distribution of creation materials through the www.drdino.com web-site.  The www.cseblog.com site will return to its original purpose of reporting on Dr. Hovind’s personal situation.  For those who wish to continue an on-line creation debate, here are a few places that appear to have current creation-evolution debates ongoing.

To those who are interested and concerned about Dr. Hovind’s situation and the message of creation we say, “Thank you for reading and posting.”

    Dash – only two more posts from Gorge and I would have become saved. Thank heavens that I am now condemned to retain my rationality.

    I have not been able to find out more news about Mrs. Hovind’s sentencing from the Pensacola newspaper. Has anything been decided for her yet?
    We’re still praying for the both of you.

    Brother Hovind has been heavy on my heart these last few days. I am glad he is in a better situation but I continue to pray for him, his safety there in the prison too like Daniel in the lion’s den.
    I am happy to see his work in the Lord there.

    Praying for the Mercy of God in this and also for the mercy of those observing. I remember one phrase Dr. Hovind used……..”if you can’t fight at least carry bullets”. I am going to carry bullets and also, he has shamed me into joining the fight too, as I should have been doing from the start.
    “You could have had one if you’d have wanted one”……..also is burned into my mind.
    Praying for an early release.

    Here’s to the spreading of the gospel!

    I for one am a little unhappy with the choice that CSE has stated here. This blog site has had lively debates on Creation Evolution and generally has been pretty entertaining overall and mostly good natured. I have perused several different blog forums and found that they are dominated by evolutionists with mean attitudes, including the three listed above. I can understand if you all don’t have the time to moderate the posts from people but I am saddened by this.

    Anyways, I still love and support all of you at CSE and will continue to do so.

    Your brother in Christ

    Hi Samphire,Very funny :)
    Great to see your still blog spotting.

    Rationality as a term is related to the idea of reason, a word which following Webster’s may be derived as much from older terms referring to thinking itself as from giving an account or an explanation. This lends the term a dual aspect. One aspect associates it with comprehension, intelligence, or inference, particularly when an inference is drawn in ordered ways (thus a syllogism is a rational argument in this sense). The other part associates rationality with explanation, understanding or justification, particularly if it provides a ground or a motive. What is irrational, therefore, is defined as that which is not endowed with reason or understanding.

    Just remember that you’re standing on a planet thats revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
    That’s orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it’s reckoned,
    A sun that is the source of all our power.
    The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
    are moving at a million miles a day
    In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
    Of the galaxy we call the ‘Milky Way’.
    Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
    It’s a hundred thousand light years side to side.maybe.
    and
    lets try to muse on the complex number of parts to DNA.
    Also
    Please refer to my post at the end of mission field in G20 for the aspects of creation in the human body.
    Also refer to Romans 1

    I can’t save you with my words,you need to stop being a grump and do the word,seeking His face,then the ‘proof will be in the pudding’

    In particular you are on my heart as I pray for the people on this blog. :)

    So I would like to hear from Mr. Hovind the answer to the question I have posed in almost every post for weeks now: Will he now engage in a written debate? If not then why? He has a hard time claiming he doesn’t have time, and poor typing skills is a poor excuse.

    I have already pointed out his theory is transcribed, it has been responded to by Dave Matson, and a numerous others. There are pleanty of people willing to host the debate. All we need is for Hovind to agree.

    [EDITOR’S NOTE:  We have weeks of a running debate within this blog site. Live debates – anytime. Internet debates with the hit-and-run tactics of those who are hiding from God no matter what, are not fruitful. We recently decided to change our policy and end that debate on these pages. It was distracting honest people from the original intent of this site. See the CSEBLOGS.COM posting of March 27, 2007. Editor’s note by Paul Abramson ]

    I liked your comments Joy! My kids & I often refer back to the many comments he made on the tapes too. We will be riding in the car & say “remember when Kent Hovind said…..”

    Kent don’t worry we haven’t fogotten you…we are still praying for ALL of you! We hold a special place in our hearts for you, as many do.

    God Bless You,

    Thought for the Day:

    dear mr.Hovind,
    Jesus loves you very much. though it may be hard to see Him in this storm, know He is always there with you in the midst of it. Nothing touches our lives unless it has gone through God first. Some times i do not understand for myself the things that God does or does not allow in my own life but i know my heart has to learn to ‘just trust’. yet each day i pray for the strength to do just that and love God and others. In saying this i want you to know that many of your brothers and sisters in Christ are praying for you every day. You and your ministry have very much encouraged my walk with God. And even still i know God will richly bless you for all the people you have and still encourage and make smile with the knowledge God has given you. Hold on to hope…. for it never fails.

    The answer to your question about Mrs. Hovind is in a previous post, Mar 7 in the “Mission Field in G20″ :

    Dr. Hovind wrote, “My wife’s sentencing has been postponed indefinitely.”

    Returning to the CSE Blog’s original purpose is great! That is my reason for reading and posting on this blog; I would rather debate elsewhere.

    We keep praying.

    Thanks brethren for redefining the purpose of CSE blog. The Lord Jesus will abundantly bless you for it.
    Brother Hovind, Our Lord has a divine plan & purpose for you & as you rightly know, It is all part of God’s plan….Joseph’s imprisonment was all part of God’s plan. Jesus’ death was all part of God’s plan. As you continually walk in obedience to the Lord, this situation will unfold & we’ll understand that it was all in God’s plan. Known unto God are all His works from the beginning….The enemy can not understand….You are victorious & the Lord’s strength & joy will continually be yours in Jesus name.
    Beloved Sister Jo, the Lord is your strength & he will see you through. I am praying & please keep praying; sooner than we can imagine, our Lord will undertake for you & brother Hovind. Your crown is waiting & you will not loose your reward for all this suffering for the Gospel’s sake.
    Eric, keep on keeping on, the joy & strength of the Lord Jesus will sustain you.
    CSE family, I pray your joy will continually know no bounds; the Lord will put laughter in your mouths & cause his joy to fload your hearts.

    We are on the battle field…Praise the Lord our master JESUS has already conquered for us

    Brethren, keep praying …do not be tired, God is over all….Remember Daniel kept on praying till the answer came…

    Thank you CSE staff. I was coming here to see how Bro. Hovind’s situation was progressing, then the evolulus started making this a debate forum, then our side started responding, and it turned into a free-for-all. Please keep us informed of the Hovind’s situation and send the debaters somewhere else.

    I want to give a hearty AMEN to the “debate stopping request” you posted. Go to the other websites to do all that stuff PLEASE ! Leave this site for those of us who really and truly CARE about the Hovind family and their current situations!

    Dr. H- we really appreciate all you’ve done to make creation story come alive and easy to understand ! Keep it up brother- we love you ! We look forward to the updates and pray that HIS perfect will be done.

    Hovind, Eric, and CSE: Great job – Keep up the good work!

    Just wanted to remind everyone of http://FreeHovind.com – It has:

    All Hovind’s Seminars, “Answering the Critics” series, College seminars, and a lot of other videos for watching and downloading
    A FreeHovind Petition, which will be open for signatures as soon as Joe is sentenced
    A powerful forum, which would be perfect for all of you who still want to debate…
    Lots of information about Hovind
    Some of Hovind’s charts, graphs, and handbooks
    Promotional materials for distributing
    And a webservant who will add anything else you find lacking! :-)

    Serving Christ Together,

    -Aubrey

    A shame, but perhaps it had to be done. I may have to agree, perhaps for the first and only time, with xchampion91 – we had a pretty civil style of debate going here, and it’s going to be hard to find its equivalent elsewhere.

    Still, these things happen, and I can appreciate that Kent would rather his blog be actually about him, rather than a forum for argument. Ho hum.

    Dear CSE,

    I think that FuManchu has summed up my comment on your debate decision. However, I see from several other CSE supporters that they are glad to see us go. I would simply state that up until your recent decision you were the ONLY civil debate platform on this issue that I have ever encountered. My only suggestion is that you might start another “thread” for debaters on these issues for those that do not want to participate in such a thing and a separate “thread” on current CSE news as is this now. I feel quite strongly that you and CSE are missing a very important opportunity in hosting a “civil” and unbiased creation/evolution debate forum which was the only one out there on the net. One site that I had made a couple of comments on blocked me from further comments. That unfortunately is the sad state of internet blogging for those who support creation, for the most part we are edited and deleted and trivialized on the other sites. Furthermore, the sites that you provided are very technically orientated and anyone that doesn’t have a PhD in something is really going to be at a loss if they try to participate with the evos. Just look at some of their entries to bear this statement out.

    With great sadness in my heart for what I believe to be a tactical error on the part of CSE.

    EndTimes.

    P.S. To Samphire, FuManchu, Darling, lagamorph and others, it is my earnest prayer that you would consider some of the issues brought up by your own colleagues on the evolution side such as Sir Fred Hoyle that just some spark of the truth of the Scriptures might creep through. May God bless, Thank you for mostly kind reponses.

    I am hoping that Kent will be out soon. I don’t know what all needs to happen next for that to happen, but I pray it will. I really do miss listening to his radio show.

    As far as Kent doing an internet debate, the idea is pretty silly. He is sitting in prison, probably with no internet access and virtually no literature relevant to the topic or anyone to discuss it with. Why don’t you challenge him to a boxing match and take your gloves off and put a blindfold on him? Though I still think he would win the debate in prison with both hands and half his brain tied behind his back and one eye closed(because he is on the right side).

    Yes another thread maybe even under another site name.

    The largest point here is the moderator, who will stand in the gap?

    Or who will dedicate the time for this?

    I am concerned about the microchips mentioned in Hovind’s letter. I have been posting information relevant to the microchip subject on MySpace for a while now. If you have a myspace account, I would love for you to come share your thoughts with me.
