On May 22, 2020, Kent E. Hovind and Paul John Hansen, as Trustee for Creation Science Evangelism (CSE), a non-statutory trust, filed a civil rights lawsuit in the U. S. District Court Northern District of Florida (Pensacola) against six defendants: the United States of America, Margaret Catharine Rodgers, the Estate of John David Roy Atchinson, Michelle Heldmyer, Scott Schneider and Alan Stuart Richey. [see Kent Hovind vs USA]
Dr. DINO we know; but who is this Free Range Chicken?
Meet Paul John Hansen,”a free inhabitant of the land”, who has a notice on his pauljjhansen.com website explaining,
“WHERE AM I. I Paul Hansen, get arrested occasionally for standing up against intrusive government. If you are not getting a response from my email it is highly likely I am in jail. There are two main reasons people go to jail in the United States: -one is for violating US written law, -the other is for holding fast to the God given right to live independent of such corrupt institutions (empires) as the United States has become.”
Paul John Hansen describes himself as having “been in court over 250 times. -I have received numerous death threats that appear as to come from NEBRASKA STATE agents. -I have been arrested an estimated 8 times. Always bogus false warrants, misdemeanor charges..”.
“I file no Federal Income taxes (form 1040) since the year 2001. (No filings in any form.) -I pay no State income taxes. -I do not pay STATE sales tax on major purchases. -I pay no COUNTY property taxes with out a judicial challenge…I currently use no State drivers license, carry no vehicle liability insurance, do not register my vehicles…I am a ‘free inhabitant’ pursuant to Article 4 of The Articles of Confederation. (Not a US citizen)…I believe that a free inhabitant has the lawful standing to choose to live independent of the constitutional corporate US governments, and its statutory courts in the vast majority of his daily life, and to be forced to do otherwise is slavery…”.
Believe it or Not, Nebraska took notice of his unauthorized practice of law…
Paul John Hansen forgot to mention that the Supreme Court of Nebraska in State v. Hansen, decided on June 14, 2013, that it was necessary to file an injunction against his unauthorized practice of law.
The Court stated, “it appears that Hansen believes that he is not subject to state law and is free to practice law without a license so long as he does so on ‘land not owned by the United States.’ He is mistaken…We conclude that Hansen’s conduct is deceptive and poses the type of risk of harm to the public that our unauthorized practice rules are intended to prevent. Accordingly, by separate order entered on June 14, 2013, Hansen is enjoined from engaging in the unauthorized practice of law in any manner, including but not limited to holding himself out to another as being entitled to practice law as defined by section 31001. Injunction Issued.” [State v. Hansen]
On his website, Paul John Hansen provides a mailing address of 488 Pearl Lane, Repton, AL 36475-1108, and describes it as a post location without the United States, not a resident address. That location is none other than Kent Hovind’s Dinosaur Adventure Land in Conecuh county, Alabama.
When I last looked in 2017, former IRS Appeals Officer Robert Baty, author of the website kehvrib.com, had a screenshot of the Conecuh county, Alabama, property data on Dinsosaur Adventure Land, showing Creation Science Evangelism, as legal owner. Three parcels were described with a land value totaling $273,440, a market value of $530,140, and improvements of $256,700.
This large estate is tax exempt property, meaning that the taxpayers in that county have to carry the burden of expenses for Dinosaur Adventure Land’s proportionate share of county services provided. Many of those citizens bearing that tax burden have not the ability to own land with improvements valued in the $787,000 range.
Kent Hovind, the multimillionaire evangelist with no income and no assets
On March 1, 1996, Kent Hovind filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy. As debtor, Hovind represented “that he is an evangelist employed by God and that he receives no income, has no expenses, owns absolutely no property, and has no creditors except for the IRS with a claim of $10,602.31”. Apparently at that time, the IRS had seized an unspecified property and he wanted it returned. In response, “On March 25,1996, the IRS filed its Motion to Dismiss alleging that this chapter 13 case was filed in bad faith for the sole purpose of avoiding payment of federal income taxes.”
The Bankruptcy Decision concluded, “The debtor having failed to file his federal income tax returns for at least the years 1989 through 1995, having resisted collection efforts by the IRS, and having provided false information in his schedules and statement of affairs in connection with this case, I find that the debtor filed this petition in bad faith and as such the petition is subject to dismissal for cause under the provisions of 11. U.S.C. 1307(c).”
Paul John Hansen reproved by a Chief U.S. District Judge, who he is now suing
In another case, Paul John Hansen is reproved in a Judge’s ORDER dated June 27, 2012, filed as document 7, in U. S. A. vs. Creation Science Evangelism, Creation Science Evangelism Foundation,(USDC for the No. District of Florida, Pensacola Div.) .
M. Casey Rodgers, Chief United States District Judge, stated, “Pending before the court is the plaintiff’s motion for default summary (doc. 6). The defendant entities have been served but have not responded to the complaint, which was filed on March 26, 2012. Neither have the defendants responded to the plaintiff’s motion for default summary judgment, which was filed on June 11, 2012.”
“Also, although an individual, Paul John Hansen, attempted to file documents in this case, he was twice informed that the papers would not be accepted because he was neither an attorney nor a party (see docs. 4 & 5). On June 4, 2012, the court entered an order directing the defendants to secure counsel, advising them that an artificial entity cannot proceed pro se, and requiring them to show cause why a default should not be entered against them (doc.5). The defendants have not responded to the court’s order, and the time for doing so has expired. Now, having fully reviewed the plaintiff’s motion and the record, and having provided the defendants with time to respond, the court finds that the motion for default summary judgment is due to be granted.”
Notice that in this most recent lawsuit filed May 22, 2020, against the United States of America, Plaintiff Paul John Hansen is suing as the Trustee for Creation Science Evangelism (CSE), a non statutory trust. Apparently Hansen has learned to avoid at least one error which the Judge noted in the lawsuit quoted above.
This time, pro se Paul John Hansen is representing Creation Science Evangelism, as a common law trust, rather than as a statutory trust. Common law trusts are created without public officials, and the individuals of the trust are eligible to legally sue, or be sued—provided they do so in their own name.
Rule No. 6: Never confess that you are the successor to that crook Glen Stoll
The Judge’s ORDER noted above, on page 5, says, “In the fall of 2011, Paul John Hansen, representing himself to be Glenn (sic) Stoll’s successor in interest as director of the defendant entities, filed liens against the properties set out above and initiated, in state court, an action entitled a Quiet Title Action…the United States removed it to federal court. Ultimately that matter was dismissed.”
“Because the ‘Hansen liens’ remained on the public records of Escambia County, thereby creating a cloud on the title, the United States filed the instant action, seeking their removal and the entry of an injunction against the defendants prohibiting the defendants or their representatives from filing new ones….The United States has filed a motion seeking a judgment declaring the ‘Hansen liens’ to be null and void from the inception…”.
Also the Judge stated, “The court found on July 27, 2007 in Case No.3:06cr83-MCR that the defendants have demonstrated no rights superior to the rights of the United States other than the right to receive whatever property remaining after satisfying the $430,400.00 forfeiture judgment. As that order was final, it is res judicata as to the defendants and if the ‘Hansen liens’ are founded on the belief that the defendants’ have a superior interest, they are precluded from asserting such an interest. ‘Res judicata bars the filing of claims which were raised or could have been raised in an earlier proceeding…”.
One of the conclusions of this ORDER is that “Defendants are hereby permanently enjoined from interfering with the rights of the United States of America in and to the property described above in any manner including filing or attempting to file liens, claims or other encumbrances in any manner whatsoever without a prior order of this court…”
More stories of Hovind’s tax troubles involving that Mastermind of illegal tax schemes, Glen Stoll
On July 29, 2009, M. Casey Rodgers, United States District Judge, issued an ORDER in United States of America vs Kent. Hovind and Jo D. Hovind, case number 3:06cr83/MCR. This Order contains insights as to why Kent Hovind ended up in a federal prison for 9 years.
“Kent Hovind and his wife, Jo Hovind, were the owners of Creation Science Evangelism (‘CSE’), a nondenominational religious organization advocating the message of creation science and opposing the theory of evolution. Located in Pensacola, Florida, CSE sold videos and books, hosted debates, and provided lectures across the United States. Kent Hovind established CSE in 1989 and merged it ten years later with the Faith Baptist Fellowship, an independent Baptist church in Hawthorne, Florida.”
“In 2002, Hovind wanted to create an independent structure for CSE, and to that end he sought the services of Glenn Stoll, director of a corporation known as Remedies at Law and, according to the company’s literature, its general counsel. Stoll and Remedies at Law promoted the formation of religious-based business organizations through pre-packaged plans that established ‘personal ministries’. Stoll claimed such ministries could be created by completing a one-page Declaration of Status asking the declarant to answer several questions about his or her purpose, loyalties, and function in life.”
“According to Stoll, answering these questions was a faith-based political statement that gave rise to ‘a lawfully established unincorporated association of pure trust’.”
“Kent Hovind took advantage of Stoll’s services by creating his own personal ministry through a Declaration of Purpose on May 12, 2003. A formal written trust agreement was executed on May 21, 2003, creating a trust name Creation Science Evangelism Ministry (‘CSE Ministry’) with the corporation sole, Director of Ecclesiastical Enterprises, as trustee. Stoll issued it a business license from the ‘Kingdom of Heaven.’ Stoll and Hovind also created a second ministerial trust the same day, named it the Creation Science Evangelism Foundation (‘CSE Foundation’), and also issued it a Kingdom of Heaven license. As the conveyance deeds noted below show, Stoll’s corporation sole, the Firm Foundation, acted as trustee for the CSE Foundation. With these entities in place, the Hovinds began a complex process of transferring nine of the ten real properties at issue in this forfeiture proceeding to various ministerial trusts.”
“By the time they began transferring the five individual trust properties and the CSE Foundation properties to Stoll’s trusts, the Hovinds had already engaged in serious criminal conduct. On July 11, 2006, Kent Hovind was indicted…”

The $536,041,100 Question
Kent Hovind and Paul John Hansen live in a tax exempt dreamworld where they do not shoulder their fair contribution towards supporting the cost of government.
Should by some remote chance, the lawsuit known as Hovind and Hansen vs. the United States of America come to trial, one wonders how their egregious sense of superiority over the simple minded law abiding taxpayer will be regarded by the jury, once they grasp that these two men are coveting a half billion dollars representing tax payer funds?
In a separate case which Paul Hansen filed this past week on June 3, 2020, against the state of Nebraska and the city of Omaha regarding a traffic violation, Hansen was granted permission by the Court to proceed in forma pauperis, allowing him to file his pro se lawsuit without payment of fees. [see hansen v nebraska]
Peruse the screenshot below, and notice the audacity of our forma pauperis free range chicken, Paul Hansen. Let us hope he never causes a car accident, and injures or kills others, since he considers himself to be above purchasing liability insurance.
A Rude Awakening
Thirteen years ago, the Hovinds received a rude awakening when they were arrested, and this was described in the May 22, 2020, Complaint filed in Hovind and Hansen vs. the U. S. A.
The plaintiffs state in Item 26, “That on July 13, 2006, at 7:30 A.M., after CSE was operating with no known legal nexus with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, a S.W.A.T. team, led by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Federal Agents, representing themselves as acting officially, in official uniform, consisting of more than twenty (20) individuals, all brandishing UNITED STATES OF AMERICA issued assault rifles, surrounded the house with a post address 29 Cummings Rd Pensacola, Fl 32503*, where HOVIND and his wife were sleeping, which was property/land owned by, CSE Trust Ministry.”
The Hovinds chose to appeal their convictions and sentences in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. The Court on December 30, 2008, concluded, “The convictions and sentences of the Hovinds are AFFIRMED.” [usa vs kent hovind appeals]
There appears to be little change of heart in regard to Kent Hovind, and it shows in yet another scheme mentioned by Ernest Land, CSEM Director, in an interview with CPA Peter J. Reilly, a few years ago. ( quote excerpted from a December 29, 2017 Tracking the Leopard Meroz article ” Ernest Land: Designer of Black Budget Tax Shelters for the Self-Anointed, Self-Professing Man of God.)
Kent Hovind reminisces about the good old days when the fruits of evangelism was Money
Item 34. in Hovind and Hansen vs. USA, notes, “In the year of:
i. 2004 CSE revenue was approximately $2,000,000.00
ii. 2005 CSE revenue has approximately $2,250,000.00
iii. 2006 CSE revenue was approximately $2,500,000.00
That totals $6,750,000 in revenues for three years + a claim that the CSE properties present value is $3,000,000=$975,0000
In Document 1, page 51, Addendum 1, Kent Hovind claims that the loss of revenue between then and now would be about $70,000,000. In Addendum 2, Paul John Hansen quotes the ten commandments written in Exodus 20 which was addressed to Israel, as a theocracy. He then attempts to apply Deuteronomy 13:11 as applying to Americans, a Gentile nation which is not a substitute for the ancient nation of Israel. There seems to be no end to the absurd interpretations of American and Biblical laws by Paul Hansen.
On June 4, 2020, the Judge ordered Kent Hovind and Paul John Hansen to “promptly, and by no later than five (5) business days of the date of this order, present the requisite summons(es) to the clerk…and asked the court clerk to notify Chambers on 6/9/2020, if summons not received. As of this morning, nothing is on the docket as yet.
