Hovind the Poet / Predictions of Christian Creationism

Kent Hovind, Creationist crackpot and now poet :

God does not believe in atheists
His presence from creation is quite clear
God does not believe in atheists
It takes a fool to tell him he's not here

God believes atheists can get born again
And become a new creation,
But they'd best admit the world around them first
And ask for their salvation
But to only cry, "Recycle!" is the worst

God believes atheists do have certain rights
To seek and search the scriptures
It says, "Come now, let us reason" that's for them
But it doesn't give them reason to
Make up what God is saying
Until it's no true benefit to them

Blee dop, sklee dop, sklee dilly dilly
Bah donna bee on a Saturday night
If that sounded like nonsense to you too,
Those schools have got some books for you



Does Christian Creationism make predictions ? Certainly. An anonymous contributor won post of the month on talk.origins in 2002 listing some of them.

4.2.1 All baramins were created in creation week. No new baramins have appeared since then, so we can expect to find fossils representative of all modern baramins throughout the fossil record. We would therefore expect to find cattle [Gen 2:20] or cattle tracks etc. throughout the fossil record in Pre-Fall (possibly), Post-Fall, Flood and Post-Flood rocks.

(...)

4.3.1 Within each land animal and bird baramin we expect a pattern of species radiation in Pre-Flood strata, massive extinction down to a single species in Flood strata, a gap followed by radiation into modern species in Post-Flood strata. For example the cattle baramin should show an increase in the number of species up to the Flood, extinction of all but one species at the Flood, a gap followed by a reappearance of that single species and a radiation into modern species after the Flood.

(...)

4.5.1 In the Flood period the order of fossils should be determined by hydrological sorting, effectively by body size, modified by swimming ability and flying ability. Acanthostega should appear higher in Flood period rocks than T. rex.


Can any Christian here provide scientific evidence that any of these predictions came true ? I'm just gonna go ahead and unleash the crickets in advance... For my part, I'd also like to ask the same question I asked IDers : where is the "micro-macro" distinction in the structure of DNA ? And how the fuck does a Flood carve through layers of soft clay to form the Grand Canyon ?


Don't miss my post on Memetics and the relation with Catholic miracles, below. Thanks !

Gotta love that Hovinian logic. Recycling = Atheism

> God does not believe in atheists <

He doesn't believe in himself? He doesn't acknowledge his own existence? That screws up objectivist axioms..

Something's screwed up here, and it's not the axioms !
