Thirteen University of Pennsylvania professors and eight Temple University
professors refuse to debate internationally known creationist, Dr. Kent Hovind

PHILADELPHIA -- REPENT AMERICA, a Philadelphia-based Christian ministry to celebrate April 1 as National Atheist’s Day for “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” Psalm 14:1 of the Holy Bible. In furtherance of this celebration, REPENT AMERICA prepares to welcome internationally known creationist, Dr. Kent Hovind.

On April 8, 2003, Soldiers For Christ at Temple University will be hosting a lecture at 7PM with Dr. Kent Hovind on Temple’s main campus in Anderson Hall - Room 17. Originally, Dr. Hovind was to debate a Temple University or University of Pennsylvania professor(s), but all 21 professors who were contacted refused.

In November 2002, Dr. Hovind’s intellectually stimulating presentation on Creation Science humiliated Temple University professor, Dr. Richard Weisenburg before an audience of five hundred. After the debate, Dr. Weisenburg said that he was “warned by his colleagues”, but decided to be the “sacrificial lamb.” Stephen White of Soldiers For Christ said, “The Evolution Hoax was unmasked during this debate and we are ready to do it again.”

“These professors who teach evolution are starting to use common sense, for it is impossible to defend the lie that humans evolved from a rock,” said Michael Marcavage of REPENT AMERICA.

Perhaps to escape humiliation, the following professors decided to refrain from defending “scientific evolution” in a formal debate with Dr. Kent Hovind:

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
