Kent E. Hovind (born January 15, 1953) is an AmericanYoung Earth creationist. He is most famous for creation science seminars, many of which have been taped and widely distributed. His seminars, which often make use of humor, aim to convince listeners to believe in biblical creation and to reject evolution. Hovind's views are criticized by the scientific community, and even some fellow Young Earth creationist (YEC) organizations like Answers In Genesis (AIG) criticize Hovind for "persistently us[ing] discredited or false arguments"
Hovind established the Creation Science Evangelism ministry in 1989. Before his incarceration in 2007 for tax offenses, he frequently argued for Young Earth creationism in his talks at private schools and churches, at university debates, and on radio and television broadcasts.
