Does anyone know where I can find the original text?
Ok here is the quote I found where hovind talks about 3 states of matter.

Matter has three dimensions, solid, liquid, and gas

It seems to be in a paragraph where he is talking about the mysticalness of the number 3 and it's relation to the trinity.

Most of my quotes are taken from this site:

I can't seem to find the original text on hovinds site. Can anyone find a link to what Buddaka is quoting? I have found may crituques and quotes from various sources but I can't seem to find the original text.

In regards to Buzzsaws comment:

I think he tries to keep it simple and relative to things commonly observed on earth for his audiences, much like many school teachers do. I don't blame him for that.

Look, it is perhaps excuseable to dumb things down for your audenace to get to a central issue. But if his point is that the number 3 is somehow mysitcal and special, and that we can see how things in nature come in distinct sets of 3's its disingenuous to say there are 3 states of matter.

Plasma is NOT GAS it is a completly different state of matter.

If he knows the truth then he is being diengenous to call atention to the mysticalness of the number 3 in realtion to the number of states of matter. If he doesn't know the truth then he is stupid or ill informed. In either case he isn't someone worth paying attention to.

Re: Does anyone know where I can find the original text?
I googled the text from Buddaka's quote and found this:
http://www.grahamkendall.net/Unsorted_files-2/A327-Hovind.txt
But I don't know the origin of the text, it would appear someone cut and pasted from somewhere (sounds like Hovind's writing but no evidence of authenticity, however the quote is there word for word)
