Bye Bye, Dinosaur Adventure Land

Kent Hovind‘s Dinosaur Adventure Land, a creationism theme park, is about to be seized by the government so that it can be sold off to pay the money Hovind owes for committing tax fraud.

U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers’ 16-page order released late Thursday gives the government the green light to divide up the nine properties in and around the 5800 block of North Palafox Street and begin to sell them until the $430,400 forfeiture amount is satisfied.

I’d love to know what the resold land gets used for… the potential is great!

    Tax fraud? Christians committing tax fraud? Who would have thought? Next thing you know the Christian priests will be molesting little children right in the Church. Then later it might get even worse and we might have Christian church leaders preaching family values all the while doing illegal drugs and gay sex with prostitutes!!!

    Of course Christians have been scamming the rest of us for decades by not paying their fair share of taxes. The scam just isn’t called fraud because the congress authorized them to not have to pay taxes. So, the rest of us have to pay even more taxes to make up the difference. That doesn’t sound fair to me!!

    I say cancel all tax exemptions!!

    From the looks of it, with just a few changes in the signage and the labels, it might make a good interactive science park for kids. “Galileo’s Pendulum Swing!” “Slide the Inclined Plane!” “Climb the Rockface Timeline of Life on Earth!” “Real Science Docents Answer Your Questions!”

    The irony would be delicious.

    How about an park with themed rides for atheists? riding in a boat for It’s A Secular World would be nice.

    I wonder how much land will be sold off before that $430k debt gets repaid?

    Frustrating thing is the Hovind is probably guilty of many more tax crimes other than just the payroll taxes. He feels that because he works for God he owes nothing to anybody. He does not think he is governed by any local, state or federal systems. He has whole lectures on tax evasion.

    Will they be auctioning off the dinosaurs? I want a huge model stegosaurus.

    They have a pendulum swing in place already. Now we just need to teach kids the reason it doesn’t swing back far enough to smack you in the face is because of science instead of an invisible cloud dude’s love.

    Leave things as it is and call it Fiction Land.

    Guess we’re just waiting on Ken Ham to screw up his taxes.

    Many Christians, including myself, realize that Kent Hovind acted wrongly, and that he was in no position to be teaching science.

    However, I find it amusing that so many atheists-people in general-make so much out of mocking the guy.

    Are you guys really that scared of one off-beat preacher?

    Rather Christian or not  HONESTY is one VIRTUE in which should be instowed apon us as children and all thru our age,  AND nomatter who or what they should not take the fun out of a childs life by taking away parks, and other places in which the inner you can imagine things  the state is looking to enlarge their pockets and the h–l with the upcoming generations
