I bet a number of people are going to scream "persecution" over this, but the fact is that the people who owned the park were tax cheats.ruling by U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers states that the nine properties that make up Dinosaur Adventure Land as well as two bank accounts associated with the park will be used to satisfy $430,400 owed to the federal government.
Kent Hovind, who founded the park and a ministry, Creation Science Evangelism, is serving 10 years in federal prison for failing to pay the Internal Revenue Service more than $470,000 in employee taxes.
He was found guilty in November 2006 on 58 counts, including failure to pay employee taxes and making threats against investigators.
The conviction culminated 17 years of Hovind sparring with the IRS. Saying he was employed by God and his ministers were not subject to payroll taxes, he claimed no income or property.
Also, by attempting to make a legal claim that the park belonged to God, and that he only worked for God, and therefore did not own any property, and so was not the employer, and thus owed no payroll taxes, he showed just how dumb his is. Of course, he had already showed dumb he is in the first place by claiming that Jesus must have ridden a dinosaur, when the Bible says that he rode an ass. Maybe the ass Jesus rode was this idiotic creationist tax dodger.
