Sourced[edit]

1990s[edit]

2003[edit]

Ancient history[edit]

  • "The top of the Great Pyramid [.....] there's no capstone on the pyramid. Till the year 2000 celebrations when George Bush [Snr.] and some of these guys put a phony one up there. See, they think they are going to have a new world order, and they probably are."
    • "Evolution: the Foundation for Communism, Nazism, Socialism, and the New World Order Video - Part 5", 1:30:20, June 2003.

Civil War[edit]

  • "...and the federal government is supposed to be the servant to the state government, states are supposed to be supreme, states' rights. Which goes into a long story of the wrong side winning the civil war, right? What was the civil war, it was Abe Lincoln's war, it wasn't the civil war..."
    • "Redeeming the Straw Man", Christian Science Evangelism tape
  • "Evolution was Vladimir Ilich Lenin’s problem. Lenin lead the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 and took over Russia. He killed the Zar [sic] and his family in cold blood. There would not be communism in Russia today if had not been for Charles Darwin's book on evolution."
    • "Unmasking the False Religion of Evolution Chapter 4", 1996, (a transcript of Kent Hovind's early sermons)
  • "The Earth is billions of years old. The geologic column is the way to interpret it, and Charles Darwin's evolution is right." That is what they teach in order to be a good communist. Did you know that Russian teachers come to America to study education because the American educational system is considered the best in the world for teaching students these three principals. This prepares them to be good communists and to doubt the word of God."
    • "Unmasking the False Religion of Evolution Chapter 4", 1996, (a transcript of Kent Hovind's early sermons)

Conspiracy[edit]

  • "There was a book written called The Protocols of Zion [sic]. Now, it was written by the rich guys, but they said, “If this book ever gets found we want to blame it on the Jews.” So they called it Protocols of Zion [sic]. But it’s actually the plan of how to control the world. It’s about seventy some pages, you can, I don’t think you can print it off my website but you can get it in a lot of places. And some people saying, “Hovind, Hovind mentions The Protocols of Zion [sic]. That means he is anti Jewish.” No, I’m not anti Jewish, okay. I love the Jews. But The Protocols of Zion [sic] was written to explain how to control the world, I mean, it lays it all out. But it’s really carefully done so that if it is ever discovered the Jews take the blame for it. Interesting. Well, read the book and see what you think.

Dinosaurs and brain surgery in the 1500s[edit]

  • In 2005 Hovind claimed, "Spanish conquistadors" in 1571 found drawings of dinosaurs on stones, and "on them you will see people doing brain and heart surgery as well as every known dinosaur clearly depicted. Several hundred of them show humans and dinosaurs together."

David Koresh[edit]

  • "GUN CONTROL! That is what the Branch Davidian compound attack was all about. David Koresh was a gun collector and a tax evader. Boy, they didn't like him, and one of the purposes for that raid was to scare the American people into submission. You better register your firearms. Make sure they know. They might come for you as they did for Koresh."
    • "Unmasking the False Religion of Evolution Chapter 4", 1996, (a transcript of Kent Hovind's early sermons)

Diseases[edit]

  • "What do HIV, West Nile Fever, Gulf war syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Wegener's disease, Parkinson's disease, Crohn's colitis, Type I diabetes, and collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer's have in common? These plagues were all developed as a joint effort by the money masters and governments of the world under the guise of biowarfare research."

Evolution and science[edit]

  • "[Evolution Theory] is the motivating factor for guys like Hitler and Stalin and George Bush, by the way, who is a Satan worshipper, like we don't know that."
    • "Truth Radio" 3 April 2006 @ 19:20 (Tape 1)
  • "Could it be that people accept evolution because [....] They know that evolution is the only philosophy that can be used to justify their political agenda of: i. Communism, ii. Racism, iii. Abortion, iv. Nazism, v. Socialism, vi. Gay rights, vii. Women's liberation, viii. Extreme environmentalism, ix. Euthanasia, x. Pornography, xi. Humanism, xii. New Age Movement
    • "Unmasking the False Religion of Evolution Chapter 6", 1996, (a transcript of Kent Hovind's early sermons)
  • "Evolutionism is a religious world view that is not supported by science, Scripture, popular opinion, or common sense. The exclusive teaching of this dangerous, mind-altering philosophy in tax supported schools, parks, museums, etc. is a clear violation of the First Amendment."
    • "Seminar Notebook" Text on the back.

Evolution conspiracy[edit]

  • "There is definitely a conspiracy, but I don’t think that it is a human conspiracy. I don’t believe there is a smoke filled room where a group of men get together and decide to teach evolution in all the schools. I believe that it is at a much higher level. I believe that it is a Satanic conspiracy. The reason these different people come to the same conclusion is not because they all met together; it is because they all work for the devil. He is their leader and they don’t even know it."
    • "Unmasking the False Religion of Evolution," 1996

Enviromentalism[edit]

  • "The purpose of the environmental movement is to establish control over the people."
    • Online Seminar 5B II Db, 1999.
  • "They banned DDT, not because it was necessarily bad, but because it was a great way to help the population control [banning DDT permits more human deaths from insect-born diseases, like malaria]."
    • Online Seminar 5B II Db, 1999.
  • "[.....] most of the environmental hype [regarding global warming] is really to help bring about Karl Marx's dream (nightmare) of a Communist world." [by reduction, and ultimately elimination of private property rights]

Fossil evidence[edit]

  • During a debate with Farrell Till, Hovind made the following claim about Donald Johanson: "[He] found the leg bones of Lucy a mile and a half away from the head bones. The leg bones were 200 feet deeper in a deeper layer of strata. I would like to know how fast the train was going that hit that chimpanzee."

Grand Canyon[edit]

  • "As for the flood carving Grand Canyon, why don’t they explain to us why the top of the Canyon is 4,000ft higher than where the river (Colorado River) enters the canyon? Why don’t they explain to us how rivers miraculously flowed up-hill for millions of years to finally cut the groove deep enough so they could flow downhill?"
    • "Scientific American, Giving Up?"[3]

Medicine and health[edit]

  • "B17 is becoming more difficult to get because the FDA is cracking down on people dealing with B17 because, after all, doctors don't get any money off of this - it's a vitamin. And they [doctors] make a lot of money when you're sick, they don't make any money when you are well. The Bible says the love of money is the root of all evil."

  • "I suspect SARS is one of the many, many, many man-made pathogens to purposely lower the human population. That's just what I would suspect. I love my country, I fear my government, okay. There have been all kinds of things produced in the last 50 years in various laboratories - and things like that - that are designed to kill people. Bottom line. I think SARS is probably one of those man-made pathogens, like probably AIDS is the same thing."
    • "Truth Radio", 7 August 2003, 42:30
  • "The whiter the bread, the quicker you’re dead" because white bread lacks vitamin E and lecithin.
    • "Hovind Seminar at Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia", May 1999
  • "Satan is seeing to it that well meaning parents are destroying their children's immune system by putting over 22 viruses into their system before they are two."

Moon landing[edit]

  • "My take on what happened with the moon landing was [......] they suspect [sic] that on impact that the cameras would be damaged because back in 1969 cameras weren't, you know, like they are today, as good. So they had a studio set up at CBS to mimic the moon landing. And sure enough the cameras broke and so they flipped, you know, the CBS studio on. And what you saw of the footage of the '69 moon landing was actually at CBS studio."
    • "Creation Evolution and Dinosaurs session #5 Q&A", 1:55, January 2002

New World Order[edit]

  • "I'm going to be real surprised if we go two more years. We are so close [to the New World Order]. All we need is one good disaster - which will be manufactured - they create their own disasters. Like the Twin Towers - they blew it up themselves - and they do that so they can bring in their solution. And what they want - if you look at what they want - they want a one world government - a New World Order - with Satan in charge. Period. That's the goal."
    • "Truth Radio", 1 May 2006.
  • "They [the New World Order] want to reduce the population [to 500 million] and their target date is May 5th of 2000. […..] The demons who call themselves spirit guides have told them. “You know, you have to reduce the population by May 5th.” Because May 5th is Karl Marx’s birthday, you know, enter the Age of Aquarius. […..] I suspect they may use Y2K as an excuse to create some little problems here, we shall have to wait and see."
  • "Here are the folks that are involved in this New World Order: The United Nations [….] the World Council of Churches […..] the Council of Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers […..] the International Monetary Fund […..] the Club of Rome, the communists, the socialists, the National Education Association […..] the NOW organisation, the ACLU, the Masonic Lodge."
  • "New World Order, coming to a city near you. They are starting next month in South America, putting microchips in people. That's the plan. America is slated for this fall. Put microchips in the palm of the right hand."
  • "[.....] this New World Order has plans to reduce the population by May 5 of the year 2000 [.....] down to one half billion very soon."
    • Online Seminar 5B II Db, 1999.
  • "Is the NAFTA a stepping stone toward the New World Order? Absolutely!"
    • "Unmasking the False Religion of Evolution Chapter 6", 1996, (a transcript of Kent Hovind's early sermons)

Politics[edit]

  • "When the Twin Towers collapsed do you know what was in the basement? [...] Lots of gold. Do you know where it is? [...] Nobody does. It disappeared. Did those buildings drop down to cover a great crime being committed? Somebody is taking all this gold out of the Twin Tower basement. Makes you wonder."
    • "Truth Radio" 3 April 2006 @ 15:15 (Tape 2)
  • "With Pearl Harbour I think our people know full well it was coming. They always have a cover story, of course. [.....] They knew full well Pearl Harbour was going to be bombed. [....] They wanted that to bring us into the war. So I think people wanted very much something like 9-11. Whether those specific buildings or not, I don't know. A lot of shady stuff, like the buildings, I understand, were sold or something or insurance policies taken out, you know, just a few weeks before that. Buildings that hold 50,000 people only had, you know, 3000 killed. Lot of folks were told not to come to work. Somebody knew what was going on."
    • "Truth Radio", 5 August 2004 @ 37:25
  • "Oklahoma City bombing was done on purpose. Did you know the Federal Government blew up their own building to blame it on the militias and to get rid of some people that weren't cooperating with the system?"
    • "Evolution: the Foundation for Communism, Nazism, Socialism, and the New World Order Video - Part 5" @1:36:10, June 2003
  • "The bad guys who would like to have a one world government have learned a simple technique - you create a crisis and then the people will call for you to come solve the crisis. That’s why the Oklahoma City Bombing took place. They wanted to get the anti-terrorist bill passed through Congress. […..] Whenever there is a crisis like the Twin Towers getting blown up, you had just better look behind the scenes to see what is really happening. Why is this going on? There’s a reason for it, okay, it’s all part of a plan. […..] [American] Civil War was intentionally done, World War Two, the Great Depression, all these things are planned ahead of time and they are orchestrated to […..] cause a particular response amongst the people."
  • "Did you know that the black suited organization that attacked the Koresh cult was a United Nations task force?"
    • "Unmasking the False Religion of Evolution Chapter 6", 1996, (a transcript of Kent Hovind's early sermons)

Tax evasion[edit]

  • In a court document the Hovinds referred to the United States Government as "the 'bankrupt' corporate government" and said they were revoking their United States citizenship and social security numbers to become "a natural citizen of 'America' and a natural sojourner."
  • In reference to a federal 58 count indictment Hovind wanted to plead, "subornation of false muster," but the Judge did not accept the plea. When the Judge pushed for a plea "Hovind said he was entering a not guilty plea 'under duress'."
    • Pensacola News Journal, July 17, 2006.[4]
  • When asked by the Judge were he lives, Hovind replied "I live in the church of Jesus Christ, which is located all over the world. I have no residence."
    • Pensacola News Journal, July 17, 2006.[5]

UFOs[edit]

  • Listener's letter: "[.....] Do you think it feasible UFO sightings could be demons? This could be an explanation for the Rapture. Ergo, it would be easy for them to deceive the public."
  • Hovind: "Yes, Kay, I think you are right on target. I think that may be one of the reasons why there's so much hype about UFOs. It's psychological conditioning for when the Rapture takes place."
    • "Truth Radio", 11 November 2003 @ 32:34
  • People ask me all the time, "Hovind, do you think there's intelligent life on other planets?" I say, "Nope. I taught high school for fifteen years. There is not much intelligent life on this planet." This was a joke Ken was making.
