Speaking of our old creationist foes, last night Stephen Colbert dedicated a segment to imprisoned fraudster Kent Hovind and the impending sale of his creationist Dinosaur Adventure Land amusement park to pay the $480,000 in taxes he was convicted of evading:

For those of you who have followed the blog since the podcasting days, you’ll probably remember us laying into his crazy ideas as far back as 2005. It was his creation seminars that bamboozled Di’s sister and our brother-in-law and subsequently drew us into the science vs. creation debate.
Kent is currently being held at Edgefield Federal Pen here in SC, and Di’s sis still visits him occasionally.
UPDATE 8/20/09 9:15 am
We just received the following e-mail from the ministry:
The United States government has given CSE notice that the ministry property (including the homes of three families) must be vacated within 28 days. While we disagree with this decision, we are complying with all the government’s requests.
So, we are relocating the ministry to a new location only one mile away. While news of leaving property that we have served from for over 20 years is devastating; however, despite the circumstances, the future is exciting!
Unsurprisingly, they’re also asking for more $$… $35,000 to be exact. Wonder what happened to the other 40 grand they supposedly raised for that Supreme Court appeal in April?
