Kent Hovind is a Creation Science teacher and Baptist minister who became well known for debating university professors and refuting Darwinian evolutionary theory. He has served eight years of a ten-year prison sentence, and he is now fighting a new charge that would put him behind bars for the rest of his life. His next trial starts Monday May 18th. Kent Hovind's teachings, much like many of the topics we cover here at Health Impact News, go against mainstream media and education regarding such topics as the medical system, vaccines, GMOs, and of course Darwinian biology. Mr. Hovind was a biology science teacher for 15 years before he began a full-time creation ministry. Did Mr. Hovind actually break any laws, or is he a political prisoner? He was charged and convicted for "structuring," which is the "crime" of taking too much cash out of your own bank account. The judge in the case called Mr. Hovind "worse than a rapist." Mr. Hovind spoke on the Joyce Riley "Power Hour" talk radio show this past week from county jail.
We have a popular article titled, Arguments we think creationists should not use. Indeed, even many misotheistic evolutionists, including Richard Dawkins, have commended the existence of such a page. Well, as the saying goes, ‘What is good for the goose is also good for the gander.’ Here are 21 bad arguments that evolutionists should not use to help further their stance on evolution. Clearly, evolution is about keeping out God, not an open approach to the actual evidence.
Absolute proof is strictly the domain of logicians. In mathematics, for example, once a theorem is proven it is proven for all time and all circumstances. Mathematical proof is absolute. Mathematics, however, is not science. This is a point about which many are confused. Mathematics is a language used by science, but is not itself a science. Mathematical proof and scientific proof are not the same thing at all. Scientific proof is not really proof at all, in the mathematical sense, but is either verification or disproof. Since scientists deal with a universe that is not of their own creation, they cannot prove their laws absolutely as can mathematicians. Although scientists use the term “scientific proof,” what they really mean is that a particular hypothesis has been verified or disproved. They don’t mean “proof” in the mathematical sense.
Is God Trying to Get Your Attention? When we find ourselves far from God, we are always the ones who moved. A loving father will always discipline his children for their own good, with the goal being restoration and healing.
Instead of following the evidence where it clearly leads, some use broom tactics to sweep away scientific challenges to secular beliefs. Sometimes human will—not reason—drives conclusions and behavior. Some ignore the fossils, ignore protein decay, or claim contamination. But all three tactics create far more problems than they solve

Exciting research from the summer of 2012 described DNA variation in the protein coding regions of the human genome linked to population growth. One of the investigation’s conclusions was that the human genome began to rapidly diversify not more than 5,000 years ago.1,2 This observation closely agrees with a biblical […]
More than a half century ago, famed writer C.S. Lewis warned about how science (a good thing) could be twisted in order to attack religion, undermine ethics, and limit human freedom. In this documentary “The Magician’s Twin: C.S. Lewis and the Case Against Scientism,” leading scholars explore Lewis’s prophetic warnings about the abuse of […]

At the Center for Science & Culture’s Facebook page, a commenter asks how we would respond to a graphic that is making the Internet rounds, humorously imagining a dialogue between God and an angel. It’s a conversation about “intelligent design,” with the angel playing the role of the skeptic and […]
"Give us today our daily bread." (Mat 6:11) These famous words are recorded in what is known as “The Lord’s Prayer” and are part of a “model prayer” that Jesus gave to his disciples instructing them how to pray. “Bread” in the Bible and in the Middle East represented life itself, as grains used to make bread were the staple food. Therefore the meaning of “bread” in this verse represents all food needed daily to sustain us. When we pray this prayer, we are acknowledging that all sustenance comes from God, and that we are dependent upon him to give it to us every day.
