RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Talk:Eric Hovind

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Merge into Kent Hovind? Right now there's next to no content and the Kent Hovind article is much more extensive, and I'm not sure if Eric is notable enough for his own article (not even Wikipedia has a separate article for him). Chthonios (talk) 03:53, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

I hope the article is better now, I made many small edits because there was relatively little information in many of the sources I used. I guess Eric Hovind will stay just about notable till his father is released from prison at least. Proxima Centauri (talk) 13:59, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Florida Atheism Monument Unveiling[edit]

Alright, not sure if this is freethought-y enough to belong here, but I felt it just underscored how nutty the guy is, and deserved to be remembered. Feel free to remove it if you think I am wrong. ThomasKFinch (talk) 13:52, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Eric the Parrot[edit]

Have you noticed that Eric doesn't provide anything new? He repeats Kent. I mention this obvious fact only because Kent at one point said himself that Eric just parrots him. Supyloco (talk) 07:09, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

There are youtube videos that have Eric Hovind's audio and Kent Hovind's videos and they are identical. Eric literally memorized his father's videos and presents them as his own. In the past year or so, Hovind has changed this and now preaches "presuppositional apologetics," which means that he doesn't even try to engage in the creation science anymore. Especially, after his feeble attempts at repeating his father's videos left Eric embarrassed when exposed as false.

Researcher's inquiry[edit]

This researcher is looking for materials on said subject matter. This material dull, personal opinions all over the page. Please re-edit your work. — Unsigned, by: Alfred1974 / talk / contribs (signed by bot) 19:20, 02 August 2014 (UTC)

Work and money[edit]

At the 3:55 mark Eric Hovind says, "I feel sorry for you guys who have to work for living." Maybe add this to the section about money?

Possible Hovind family split[edit]

[1] Is there any information on this anybody else can find? I've had a quick look on google, there doesn't seem to be anything. There's only this video which is suggesting a family problem, though it was uploaded only today. MisterBlueSky (talk) 21:04, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Yep, there's more:
Though Hovind is dumb on his own grounds, not because of any family issues. The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 03:45, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Also see Court Records here for a civil court case (2016 CC 001545) between God Quest Inc vs Kent Hovind over "Eviction with Damages." You can also search Kent and Jo Hovind "marriage dissolution."

Office furniture[edit]

"In May 2016, Hovind announced the Creation Store was closing and was selling items, including "office furniture," at a discount." (Source: https://www.facebook.com/erichovind/posts/989290937786484 and http://us1.campaign-archive2.com/?u=0c27fabe1a3f3155774781e90&id=8d06417d27 )

If I was as stupid as I am right now, only richer, I'd buy these and have them shipped to DG free of charge. Does the RationalMedia foundation have offices? If so, we should act fast... Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:23, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

What's all this "Pacione" stuff?[edit]

@DigitalWasteland And why should anyone care? This all looks like a bunch of irrelevant bullshit and drama. You're tossing this character's name around like someone reading the article should know who he is, and you provide no references at all besides some anecdotes and links that have nothing to do with the subject. What is your purpose here? Cosmikdebris (talk) 19:47, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

RatoinalWiki was watching his review of Eric Hovind's site. Drama no that's research he played up; he squared off with both Hovinds on his 38th birthday. --DigitalWasteland (talk) 19:56, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Write what he was convicted for and by who[edit]

"who has followed in the footsteps of his father Kent Hovind, a convicted felon ... by a convicted pedophile who hanged himself.
