|what mistakes has he made that you can point out?|
1st post on this board. I happened upon this board and this was the first post I saw. I just had to respond because hacks like Hovid only help in hurting Christianity.
I think that Hovid’s transgressions range farther than just mistakes. The basic foundation of expertise is in question. He claims to be a Doctor, but he received his PhD from a diploma mill. (Coincidentally for $500 you could probably get a PhD from Patriot university as well).
Here are a few links that illustrate Hovid’s inadequacy:
A review of his doctoral dissertaiton:
Talkorigins.org page questioning Hovid’s claims, arguments and credentials:
I think that when a person like Hovid comes around you have to ask yourself a couple of questions. Right off the bat, how can one guy refute the central theories in several scientific disciplines? He claims to be an expert in biology, physics and other sciences. I’m not saying that is impossible, but I am saying it is highly unlikely. This should be a warning flag to tell anyone to be skeptical of this person’s claims.
Here we have a guy who says that he can refute all scientific claims not aligned with biblical creation. You may think that this is appealing, but just because it sounds right in line with your faith based beliefs, doesn’t make it science.
I hope this helps, and please ask more questions.
