In 2009, the IRS took control of Dinosaur Adventure Land, Kent Hovind‘s Creationist theme park in Pensacola, Florida, so that they could sell it off and recover the money Hovind owed for committing tax fraud. (It was a sad day for, like, three people.) Hovind was sentenced to 10 years in prison and was eventually released in 2015.
While there were attempts by Hovind’s son to buy back the property, that never worked out and the park has officially been closed since 2009.
You know what that means.
Hovind has built another Dinosaur Adventure Land! This one is in Repton, Alabama, and the grand opening takes place this Saturday. You can see glimpses of it at the beginning of this video:
It’s the poor man’s Creation Museum, but with all the same bullshit. Even Ken Ham is probably thinking, “Damn, that’s just sad.”
But wait. Wait. Wait until you see the flyer. You’re going to laugh your ass off.
Check out the image in the lower left-hand corner.
That, my friends, would be Jesus holding a raptor.
Kent Hovind is literally using a meme mocking Creationists to advertise his Creationist theme park. (And it looks like he gave Jesus a haircut, too.)
What else would you expect from the man whose doctoral thesis from the unaccredited Patriot Bible University opens with the line, “Hello, my name is Kent Hovind”?
Someone in the area please attend and report back. I have to know just how depressing this place is…
