My Kindle Confront[s] Kent Hovind's Dissertation
Kent Hovind's diss--um, er, ertation, if you want to call it that, is now online. I loaded it onto my Kindle, which has new PDF-reading ability, and began the Text-to-Speech function.
When I read, "As an evangelist, God has given me..." (was God the evangelist?) I knew I was in for the long haul. My Kindle, in fact, started reading aloud in two ways: first in its normal voice, and then, in a silly high pitched whine.
Rather like that. Then, it let out a gasp and refused to read further unless I gave it some chocolate. Nobody else touches my chocolate!
I looked at the page (74) and read for myself (otherwise, I would never have believed it):
Bring back a Mars rock or a Jupiter rock, I'll eat it or lick it.
The best. Line. In a "dissertation." Ever! Bwahaha! My Kindle now demands pop-rocks.
Where can I find pop-rocks? I haven't seen those things in years. I offered to go to the Science Museum and pick up some freeze-dried ice cream, but Kindle won't hear of it.
Shimmies to Pharyngula
LATER: It just gets better and better:
page 87: "God created the plants on day three before he created the sun on day four. If you think plants are going to survive billions of years without the sun, you need to study more biology." Now, how can you argue with that? Bwahaha!
