Once again, dear reader, we bring you important news of an author with a vanity press book. As with others who have made paradigm-shattering discoveries, today’s proud author has announced his work by hiring a press release service.
This one is issued by an outfit we’ve encountered before. It’s called PRWeb, which “gets your news straight to the search engines that everyone uses, like Google, Yahoo and Bing.” Their Pricing page reveals that their “Basic Package” costs $159. We assume that’s what we’re dealing with here.
The press release is titled Creationism vs. Evolution: Ground-Breaking Discovery by Physics Engineer Solves Vital Facet of Origins Debate. We’ll give you some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
A new book by North American Physics Engineer, Daniel Friedmann, could be about to settle long-held differences between devotees to Creationism and Evolution. By connecting the dots that reconcile science and religion, ‘The Genesis One Code’ provides concrete answers to the origin of the Universe and life on earth.
This is fantastic. A “physics engineer” has not only reconciled science and religion, he’s also solved some of the greatest problems in science. Here’s a link to his book at Amazon: The Genesis One Code. It costs only $9.99, so it sounds like a bargain. The publisher is something called Inspired Books. We can’t find a website for them, so we’ll assume they’re a vanity publisher. Let’s see what else the press release tells us:
This epic discovery uncovers a highly-accurate way to convert ‘Bible Time’ to Gregorian years and thus the age of the Sun, Earth and the Universe as a whole. In fact, without any modifications, the formula consistently produces results that match scientific estimates.
That’s truly an epic discovery. Let’s read on:
“The argument between evolutionists and creationists often heats up when timelines are discussed. For example, every word in the 6 Day Genesis describes the origins of the Universe. However, scientists have their own timeline of when the world came to be, in apparent direct contradiction to Genesis,” says Friedmann, who works as the CEO of a large aerospace company.
He’s “the CEO of a large aerospace company”? We Googled around to see what that might be. We found a Wikipedia article on the guy, Daniel E. Friedmann, but were surprised to see that the aerospace company isn’t named. Editorial notes at the start of the article indicate that Wikipedia’s editors aren’t certain about its contents. They suspect that Friedmann wrote it himself. If so, that’s a promotional technique we haven’t encountered before, and we’re very impressed. Let’s continue with the press release:
At its heart, ‘The Genesis One Code’ explains how Friedmann developed the formula – 1,000 X 365 X 7,000 — from references in religious texts. Multiplying these numbers shows that each Creation day is an epoch of 2.56 billion Gregorian years. Using this formula to calculate the age of the Universe gives 13.74 billion years, almost an exact match to science’s latest estimate published December 21, 2012 after 9 years of satellite observation.
The formula is far too advanced for us. We’ve been struggling with it, but when we multiply 1,000 times 365 we get 365,000. And multiplying that by 7,000 gives us 2.555 billion. What are we supposed to do with that? Somehow it works for Friedmann:
In Genesis alone, Friedmann’s formula produces about 20 Bible/science matches for events related to the development of the universe and the appearance of life on earth described within its text.
We’re hopelessly lost, and it’s probably our fault. We are not a “physics engineer.” Here’s more:
This makes the formula a discovery of truly monumental proportions. “I hope that it fills in some of the grey area between science and The Bible, while serving as the inspiration to unravel further mysteries between both sides of the debate,” Friedmann said.
There’s no doubt that this is what the world has been waiting for. One last excerpt:
With the book expected to see high demand, interested parties are urged to secure their copy before it’s too late.
Very good advice. There’s more information in the press release, and the Amazon listing has 18 reviews so far — almost all give the book a 4 or 5-star rating. We’re confident that they’re from impartial readers, because no one can slip phoney reviews into an Amazon listing.
Well, dear reader, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and get a copy of this book.
