Dinosaur creationist theme park seized by government

We've posted previously about Dinosaur Adventure Land, the creationist theme park in Pensacola, Florida. Now, it looks like the government may be seizing the properties in lieu of nearly half a million dollars owed to the IRS by the theme park's founder/minister Kent Hovind. He's in jail for tax fraud. Maybe they'll auction off the exhibits! From the Pensacola News Journal:


(Hovind) 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.
