One interesting point that is touched upon is that Hovind keeps saying there was higher atmospheric pressure which allowed for larger creatures. This part is likely to be true. Just not in ANY WAY how he perceives it.
Without a thicker atmosphere it is almost impossible to explain the size of dinosaurs and it IS impossible to explain pterosaurs being able to fly. There are a number of people who believe in a thicker atmosphere theory but for some odd reason it is not well accepted. This has nothing to do with Hovind's nonsense, it's just an interesting thing that often gets overlooked in regards to paleobiology.
