A response to a cranky creationist
June 5, 2009
I recently wrote a column about the idea that dinosaurs still exist in modern times. I mentioned that all the evidence suggests that dinosaurs died out about 65 million years ago. I expected that might rile a few creationists, and sure enough I got the following e-mail within hours:
> In your article you assume that the earth is millions of years old and
> dinosaurs dies out 65 million yrs ago. Please provide empirical evidence
> of this. If you provide this evidence the Dr Kent Hovind will give you
> $250,000 dollars. There is more evidence to the contrary. Please see Dr

>Thank You, Laura
Thanks for writing; I don’t think Kent Hovind will be giving me any money, as he is currently serving 10 years in prison for a few dozen felonies.
If he’s your most credible source, you are in deep, deep trouble!
