Today’s Friday feedback comes from two comments on two different blogs.  It will be in the form of a Video Blog, or VLOG! Sounds exciting, wonder if it will catch on?

Dragons on Animal Planet

Eric Hovind August 20th, 2010

Shocking! Animal planet admits dragons once lived on earth!  Browsing through the Animal Planet website recently, I was shocked to see that it was featuring a new special on dragons!  It blew my mind that they would depict dragons and dinosaurs living at the same time when there is so much evidence that dragons and people lived at the same time. Don’t the producers/writers realize that this is evidence that will help us kill the sacred cow of Evolutionism? Don’t they see that this evidence and information goes against the grain of what many scientists believe today?

Faith IS the Foundation

Recently an atheist said to me: “But faith is the opposite of reason, you don’t need faith to use reason.”

An Evening with Ken Ham

Eric Hovind August 16th, 2010

I have always enjoyed learning from Ken Ham and the team at Answers in Genesis. While in Bible College in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Ken was one of my professors and I enjoyed his teachings immensely. (BTW: This fall I have been asked to join Ken Ham, Jason Lisle, and others as one of the teachers at the college. I look forward to going back to invest in the students’ lives there at Jackson Hole Bible College later this year. If you don’t have college plans for this fall, contact JHBC to see about enrollment.)

In a recent blog, some readers presume that, because of the content, we must not understand how evolution really works. One reader wrote this:

The Future: The Past Revisited?

Eric Hovind August 11th, 2010

An interesting thread of comment came up on Facebook about how we trust that the future will be like the past, known as the ”Uniformity of Nature.” How can we know that the future will be like the past? If we could not ”know“ this very simple concept, then we would not perform experiments in science. For example, if we were to do an experiment and see that water boils at 212 degrees, but do not expect the future to be like the past, then why do the experiment? For all we know when we do the experiment again tomorrow under the same conditions it might be different. The question is, ”HOW do we KNOW that the future will be like the past?” Here was my response on Facebook:

America’s Precious Right—The Vote

Eric Hovind August 9th, 2010

Today is the start of early voting for those of us in Florida. So, I started thinking: Have you ever experienced one of those times when something happens and it’s not funny, but you laugh hysterically? At the birthday party I attended on Saturday a little two-year-old boy named Sean walked right in front of a nine-year-old boy swinging on a swing. The swing was at just the right height to perform a clothesline style move better than WWF fans have ever seen. Let’s just say little Sean was not a happy camper after that experience, but surprisingly it wasn’t one minute later that he was laughing and having fun again, ready to run back in front of the same swing. Thankfully his mother was there to make sure that didn’t happen.

SIN—To Miss the Mark

Eric Hovind August 6th, 2010

Today I participated in my very first archery competition. I have only been shooting for a couple of months, but I was anxious to get out there and see what I could accomplish against guys that had been shooting much longer than I have. The target was a steel buck, literally a steel buck silhouette and a four-inch by four-inch square cut-away where a “kill” shot would be on a real deer. A target is placed behind the hole to stop any arrows that go through that little square. If you miss the square, you never get to shoot that arrow again because it hits the steel buck and destroys your arrow. (Great incentive to be accurate and for the sporting good store that sponsors the competition!) I experienced my first miss in round two at 35 yards. OUCH!!  When you hear your own arrow hit that steel and you realize that you have missed the mark, your stomach sinks, your heartbeat escalates and you feel more pressure in the next shot. It is interesting that we get the term “sin” from archery. It literally means to miss the mark.  I experienced that three times before finishing third place in that competition.
