This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Kent Hovind page.


This page reads more like a Wikipedia article on the subject. There appear to be some quotes buried in the text, and they should be the focus here, with the remaining text stripped out. Otherwise, this page should probably be deleted. ~ UDScott 11:39, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

User:C56C has replaced the encyclopedic article with a substantial quote article. As a result… This article was preserved after a vote for its deletion. See its archived VfD entry for details. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 15:49, 5 August 2006 (UTC)


There is a group of people who say the 'Protocols' are a real plan for world government, but written up as a Jewish plot ( to hide the *real* conspirators, you see). Hovind appears to have been reading literature put out by some of these people.

Now, the 'Protocols' are a notorious hoax (one of many discreditings is the book 'A Lie and a Libel'). People who put any credence in them for any reason are deluded. But this particular take on them I do not think is anti-Semitic, when you look at it, just loopy. I would recommend that the reference to Hovind's quote as 'anti-Semitic' be changed to 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion'. It is odd, I admit, as the two things are usualy the same, but the facts seem to support this change.

Someone advise me: can I change it myself without starting an edit war?

Seems to me like you're right. I renamed the section as "Conspiracy". This OK? Muad 01:20, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
This illustrates why the standard format of people articles calls for quotes to be sorted chronologically. One reason this article has a cleanup tag is because the interpretive topic headings should be removed. ~ Ningauble 20:27, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Misc. quotes (need better citations, some are dead links, others undated)[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.
  • "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.

  • "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?"

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."

[…..] 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."
