Hunt believed occult or pagan influences are
pervasive in modern culture - this includes evolution, as well as all forms
of psychology, some forms of entertainment, yoga, and some forms of
medicine. His book Occult Invasion is dedicated to this area, while several
other books mention it in part.
was a strict Biblical Creationist - refutations of evolution and theistic
evolution were a frequent topic of his radio programs, Search the Scriptures
Daily and According to God's Word.
...I think you’ve got to be very
stubborn to reject God and to say evolution—it all happened by chance. No
rational person could support that thesis. And I would challenge
anybody....—you know the more they get down—when we discovered electron
microscopes and we got down to the molecular level of life, we found that it
was far more complex than Darwin realized.
