From Eric Hovind’s twitter feed, we get a photo and a caption:
Hanging out with Dr Stephen Meyer from the Discovery Institute. Wow, smart guy!
For those who can’t keep track, Hovind is the son of Kent Hovind, currently serving time in a federal prison on charges related to tax evasion. Hovind created “Dinosaur Adventure Land,” a young earth creationist theme park, and adopted the stage persona “Dr. Dino” for his speaking tours. Hovind claims a doctorate from a diploma mill: Patriot Bible University. He also claims that creationism is excluded from schools because of a secret conspiracy involving the Israel, the British royalty, and probably the Masons. He believes that the US government lacks legal power to collect taxes, a position he tested in court to disastrous results.
While he annoys the prison chaplain for a ten year stint, Hovind’s son Eric has taken over the family business. He managed to buy back Dinosaur Adventure Land from the IRS, who seized it for back taxes. He continues touring in support of creationism. And, if his photo with Disco’s Stephen Meyer is any indication, he even appears to be smoothing over the historically tense relationship between Hovind and other creationist groups.
