Creation Science Evangelism

Creation Science Evangelism (CSE) is a leading Christian-apologetics ministry, defending the literal interpretation of the Genesis creation account from the theory of evolution (see our Statement of Faith). CSE was founded in 1989 by Dr. Kent Hovind, from a desire to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the science of God’s creation. Today, CSE is an international ministry with some of the most requested resources on the topics of creation, evolution, dinosaurs, and the Bible.

    Dear Kent,

    I´m a german entrepreneur, living in Vienna, Austria. I discoverd Your creation video seminars on the website a few years ago. This is the time for me to thank You so very much doing this incredible ministry, changing the life of many people and give us all the security about how GOD made the world.

    You gave us the tools to distinguish between GOD´s truth in the Bible and the lies of the devil. I am watching Your videos every few weeks and everytime I am astonished about the plenty and the depth of Your work.

    I pray to the LORD to strenghten Your heart, Your soul and Your faith in this time in prison. I pray for the prison personal beeing good to You and will support You and Your work in prison at all circumstances and at all events.

    God bless You.
    God bless the prison personal.

    With my best regards
    Michael Braun

      Dear Mr. Hovind,

      I was just saddened to discover that you are in prison for tax related offenses against the federal government.

      I attended one of your seminars about 15 years ago. Since then, you have been one of my favorite Christian ministors.

      It is no doubt that you ahve dedicated your life to work for God. However, we are all told to, “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s” (??????? ??? ?? ???????? ??????? ??? ?? ??? ???? ?? ???.[Matthew 22:21]. There is really no argument to be made here. This is the words of our Lord.

      In any case it seems that God want’s you to minister to our prisioners. I hjoope that your time spent in prison will pass quickly and comfortably. I would love to send you what I can to help you time there easier. Please forward me your contact information at the prison.

      Know that thsi is God’s will. Be strong. Persecution for God’s sake is a privilage and an honor. you will be in my prayers.

      In Christ’s Name,
      Your Brother, Ali

    Does kent even care that most of what he says is just plain wrong.

    I don’t get it, kent and Eric seem like intelligent guys, they can’t honestly believe the stuff they say, they must only do it for the money.

      Yes, I’m pretty sure Dr Hovind has been in jail the past 8 years really enjoying the financial rewards reaped by his ministry.

      The CSE ministry is backed up with fact. Don’t just come onto this forum and state that the teachings are “just plain wrong” unless you have something to back up your statement. That’s just “plain stupid”.

      Sadly, there are many people (such as Cain) that will never get to know the truth… It saddens me very much. But only God could change their harts. Either through people or other ways we may not be aware of. God bless Cain and let him find the truth!!!

      I resent the fact you think saying a totally oblivious statement nicely makes it any less ignorant or uncalled for. They have dedicates their lives to a cause. You should have some respect. Kent is in prison for what he believes in. We call that conviction. He so full heartedly believes what he does, i think he’d even die for it. And for you too blatantly a his life long dedication and ministry, thousands upon thousands of hours put into it, says a lot you, and probably your religious prejudice for evolution.Have some respect. Have some respect.

      I’m usually not one to pick fights, but just because you say someone’s wrong because they showed you evodence that your theory isn’t true isn’t justification to start calling them a liar. If you want to get in an intelectual debate to prove your dumb theory to be true, then present some real evodence; and if you’re wanting to call someone a liar, then actually be bold enough to state your name and tell him where he is wrong and show evodence of why he is wrong.

    Also, I couldn’t find those six basic concepts of evoluation noted in the cartoon on any evolution site. Where are you getting that from?

    • Tad October 29, 2012 2:24 am Reply

      If you’re talking about the ‘six types’ of evolution that creationists always refer to, those are arbitrarily made up to try to discredit Darwinian evolution. In reality, Darwin’s theory only adresses change over time. That’s it. It accounts for the variation of species. Cosmology and abiogenesis completely different matters.

      • Kaleb Redick February 28, 2013 3:39 pm Reply

        First off, simply stating evolution is change over time is too broad. You have to define how much time and how much change. There is no problem with defining evolution in 6 categories. It makes it less broad and more understandable. Now, as Kent Hovind most awesomely points out, the first 5 types are PURE fantasy and can’t be observed, therefore are NOT science. Now, species vary. No question with this. Look at dogs, cats, fish, birds. All have various colors, sizes, shapes. Now, a cat is a cat is a cat. Same can be said about any species of dog. They may have variations, but they are ALL the same kind of animal…a dog. But, the evolutionists try to cleverly say “Well, this is proof that evolution is true! We all share a common ancestor!” See the HUUUGE leap of faith they just took?

        Lastly, referring to abiogenesis and evolution. I have debated countless evolutionists and love when this is brought up. You can’t have a good theory unless you know the beginning. Simply saying “Well, we don’t have to know how it began. That is irrelevant” is another way of saying you don’t know. Abiogenesis is required for your process of evolution to occur, BUT evolution is not required for the process of abiogenesis (intelligence is). So, in conclusion, evolution is dependent on abiogenesis.

      Hi MM,

      Tad’s comment fails to take into consideration that what you’re looking for regards the ‘Big Bang’ theory as well as ‘Darwinian evolution’ (though I don’t know what it’s called that since the theory existed before he did). How questions regarding the start of stars, universes, gases etc. is being “made up to try discredit Darwinian evolution”, I have no idea. They’re legitimate issues that evolutionist scientists cannot provide answers to.

      I believe what you’re looking for is as follows:
      1) Cosmic evolution – the origin of time, space and matter, ie. the ‘Big Bang’

      2) Chemical evolution – the origin of higher elements from hydrogen (the ‘Big Bang’ theory doesn’t explain where the other 105 elements come from)

      3) Stellar and planetary evolution – origin of stars and planets

      4) Organic evolution – origin of life

      5) Macro evolution – the changing of one species into another

      6) Micro evolution – variations within kinds

    Dear Kent,

    I always had a dilemma with reconciling creation in Genesis and the theory of evolution, my problem was that God’s Word is unchangeable and leads to “truth which sets one free”

    The Word of God has been proven to be reliable in every instance so why should it now be wrong in light on evolution?

    Either we take the Word of God in entirety or we discard it totally, as we cannot just take parts which appeal to us and discard the parts with which we disagree or are unappealing.

    Thank you for your seminars, which I have watched many times over as they explained and confirmed the many uncertainties and doubts I had about evolution.

    Your situation reminds me of Joseph, Peter & Paul who did great works while in prison for the sake of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.

    The Lord bless you, protect you, strengthen you and fill you with His Holy Spirit to give you a hope of a great expectation for the future for “The trials of this present time are incomparable to the glory to come”

    Blessings in Jesus

    Hi – this message is for Eric Hovind. Eric, we met in the green room at TBN when you and Dr. Steve Austin and Greg Koukl and others were lined up to speak. You had splitting headache… which suddenly went away.
    Drs. John Sanford, John Baumgardner, and Steve Austin, and geologist Bill Hoesch and I are the founders of Logos Research Associates. We are currently interested in exposing the history and many problems with Big Bang theory. Yesterday, I stumbled across,, a YouTube of your dad speaking, in part, about Big Bang, and quoting size estimates of the “cosmic egg” as it devolved in textbook accounts from “a few light years across” to “a trillionth the diameter of a proton” over the course of a few decades. Unfortunately, your dad didn’t give references. Is it possible that you might have those references, and that you could share them with us? They would be very useful for our project.

    Thank you for any help you might be able to offer!

    For His Kingdom,
    Jim Pamplin

      SO? You think evolution is true huh? Please, elighten us on how it is true and how it does not conflict with God?

    • Amanda January 4, 2013 10:33 am Reply

      Of course evolution conflicts with God. The Bible says that sin through man brought death. Evolution says that death occurred before man. Either evolution is lying or the Bible is. Since evolution is a man-made theory, and the Bible is from God, I’m going to go with the Bible.

      In addition, we are created in the image of God. How could man have been created in the image of God as protoplasma? Or monkeys? If we’re created in the image of God then what about the plasma that didn’t evolve into humans but instead evolved into crocodiles, birds or trees? Is a tree created in the image of God too? Did Jesus die on the cross for all mankind, animals and plant life? Am I going to see a saved tomato bush in heaven? If a lion eats a human, and doesn’t repent, will it go to hell?

      You wouldn’t have needed to explain evolution to a “bunch of tired Jews in the desert” because the fairytale of evolution hadn’t been made up yet.

    Dr Hovind

    Your videos on You Tube are my diet these days. I have always wanted to see the public schools remove evolution from the science books because they are religious and theoretical in nature.

    Philosophy should not be taught at the elementary level, I have several kids in the public school system and they have been commissioned to challenge the arguments for evolution. They have a right to do so as students in the PUBLIC education system which is not the PUBLIC indoctrination system.

    Our nation has lost its way, partly because of the determined effort to destroy the family and the elementary educational system. Mothers feel pressured to work to pay bills and therefore they must turn their children over to the Governmental educational process.

    In light of the horrible shootings in Newtown CT, we are looking to start some form of prayer for our local schools to ask God for protection and to cry out for His benevolence on behalf of the kids of our nation.

    What can we legally do to press our school district to adopt a science book with no references to evolution? Where can we go for help on this? We are located in NJ.

    May the Lord assist you in this time of great testing, His will is being accomplished in that your son is growing through this process and so the next generation will be blessed with more information to defend 6 day Creationism,

    It is sad that the mainstream evangelical community has adopted the Frame theory or other hypothesis that has God using evolution to make the world, men simply love darkness more than light.

    Shalom my brother in the Lord,

    Thank our Lord and Saviour Jesus for giving us eternal life through His blood of forgiveness. Dr. Ken Hovind my brother and son of God Almighty, thank you for your race and conviction, our Fathers Grace is sufficient and He will be Glorified. Brother Hovind your labor for the Lord has been hopeful for my family and your simplicity in explaining creation is a wonderful gift of The Most High God. The Faithful Creator loves a broken and contrite heart and you my brother are a example of The Love of Christ Jesus.

    THE “Creation / Evolution” debate has gone on for years dividing people based on specific ideologies which are promoted by proponents of either type of theory. Dividing. The opposition is much like Satan, the opposer and the dialectics which polarize one man from another. When man is separated from man, there is no unity of the spirit. So this Creation / Evolution debate is, in part, itself a work of darkness.
    In the classic Creation / Evolution debate, some folks take a side which states that the universe earth and man were created in 6 twentyfour hour days. Others take a position that one species evolved into another species over millions of years and normally these folks also suggest that inanimate molecules assembled together somehow to form life.
    Let me suggest that both positions are probably wrong.
    Secondly, let me say that this is not a scientific question subject to the scientific method (not a matter of whether either thesis is repeatable and would occur) but it is a historical question. What really happened ? is the question.
    I know of no inter-species fossils which we would expect to find if gradual inter-species evolution had occurred. Furthermore, point mutations lead to death and do not lead to the sudden formation of body organs such as eyes etc. But these points do not rule out a punctuated change which occurs rather suddenly with respect to a long historical timeframe. The fossil record shows a punctuated emergence of various life forms (and theories suggesting a centrifugation-like layered sedimentation of the Flood forming the fossil record is extremely dubious on its face).
    Regarding suppositions used by those proposing the 6 day creation, well, in one day plants do not emerge from the ground in the natural world, leading us to question what is meant in Genesis 1 & 2. The word translated Day does not necessarily mean a 24 hour day… and if it is a 24 hour day, then even Einstein has shown us that time is a relative dimension which depends on your point of reference and the rate of separation and velocity of the objects involved. Traveling at the speed of light, time stops according the relativity theory. So even time is relative and time in one place may not pass in the same manner (“at the same rate”) as in another place. As mentioned before, the fossil record shows appearance of different life forms suddenly at different times in history. Think about it this way, the creative hand of God may not act in a manner which we understand. It is the Mystery of Creation. The bible never said that Adam was created at something like 4004 bc — no passage states that at all. So do not be blinded by a simple minded approach to Genesis and all of history. There are many other things that indicate that the earth is older than that. We can not simply ignore the facts and (1) be honest or (2) be viewed by others who know more than us about these facts as anything but brainwashed nearly mindless followers.
    Lastly, just because your church or preacher paid to give you a message (red flag) insist on a 6-day literal creation, they are not God. So use your brain that the creator gave you and do not insult the intelligence of professors who understand a number of things which are inconsistent with the pea-brain ideas propogated in the churches. And if you think your fundamental minister who is dogmatic about a bunch of their own doctrines is correct (note: dogma = am God, in reverse), just consider the lie of the pretribulation rapture pushed in many churches. The bible siimply DOES NOT state that the sequence of events are “rapture followed by 7 year tribulation period”; that is a made up doctrine in falsehood since it is Not in the bible and is a Private Interpretation of any prophecy is forbidden in the bible (2 Peter 1:20
    Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.)
    So wake up ! Liars and ignorance are everywhere. You need to check things out for yourself and find the truth step by step.

    Thank you, Dr. Hovind. I have only found your work recently (late 2012). if I may say this; it is truly inspiring, to see how you’ve unbelievably shaken the atheist hornets nest – challenged their misbegotten, undeserved authority over truth – angered ranks of scientifically-closed-minded authoritarians.

    It is a disgrace to this nation, the way that you were taken “lawfully” from your family and shuffled from prison to prison over the last 6 or 7 years. You are a brilliant Dr. and a minister, a great role model for our country. It shows you how backwards we have become; the US has less than 1/2 the population of China, yet has DOUBLE the prison-population. Doesn’t that say something beyond “freedom”?

    Furthermore, I have educated myself beyond “School” (as everybody must) and have learned from EXPERIENCE how criminally “lawful” our tax system is here; IT IS truly a scam. An example is how tax fraud (identity theft) has been consistently rising 150% each year with no sign of slowing.

    Yet worry not, have faith that Your works are still reaching people, even at this very moment – who are finding their way back to their inner-roots like I did and rediscovering God. All blessings from God! All Glory to God! thank you Dr. Hovind – and the entire Hovind family and co. for adding strength to modern Christianity.

    i shall pray for you, and hope you get the h311 outta there before the impending collapse kicks in!

    Dear Kent, I have also spent some time in prison and know what it is like and what you have been going through. That is the place I REALLY put my faith in God. It was a blessing for me to go there, for 5 years, and to be pulled away from all the bad influences and distractions I had around me. It got me to a place where I was all by myself away from family and everything, and I was 1 on 1 with God. It was a test of all tests for me to rely upon God for my safety. I have never returned since my release in 2001. But I know that when God has a plan for us, we can end up in a place we never expect. So I always keep that in mind.
    I feel for you brother, but I know that God is using you in there to reach the ones who need it. That’s why you are there.
    Thank you for all your incredible work you have done, and are still doing. You have reached untold numbers of people with your research and won many souls and still are. We are trying to plan a Creation program for our youth at church and am going to present your seminars as something we should use. Your work has shown incredible professionalism and this is important to be respected.
    Together with your work and Ron Wyatt’s, how on earth could anyone deny God’s Word? My faith has been strengthened by you both in ways I could never have imagined! I know that you met with Ron.
    I hope that you and your family are all okay and hanging in there. I’m sure you are. You are God’s children, and you know where your strength lies. Not in the cares of THIS world. God Bless you and yours Kent. And God Bless the people around you, inmates and guards. Can’t wait to meet in some day!

    A fellow brother in Yahushua, Jesus,
    Elliott Fowble
