I guess Kent Hovind honestly believed himself when he said that eating peach pits (which contain cyanide) cures cancer.
Hey, eat enough cyanide and it will stop the cancer and even prevent any more from forming in you ever again!
Well, I guess that is true (like the anti-aging pills that kill you ).
I did laugh when he praised Native Americans for chewing willow bark (which he also claimed cured scurvy) and laughed at people for taking aspirin. Or when he said warts were caused by zinc deficiency.
