The usual creationist with a vanity press book promotes his writings by paying for a press release, and so it is with today’s specimen. But our latest find is more mysterious than most, being described only as a “researcher and author.” That makes this news exciting!
As with other 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 $80. We assume that’s what we’re dealing with now.
The press release we found is titled New and Advanced Science Discovered that Not Only Proves Religion but Revolutionizes Evolution and Creationism as Never Before . Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
According to Colton Bach, researcher and author of the new book: 2012 Facts & The New Science Of Religion & Evolution; A new and advanced science has been discovered that not only proves religion, but revolutionizes theories on Evolution and Creationism. No longer is [sic] science and religion separate.
Here’s a link to the book at Amazon: 2012 Facts & The New Science Of Religion & Evolution (Volume 1) . We observe that the publisher is something called CreateSpace . Yup, it’s a vanity outfit.
Let’s read on, as the press release quotes the author:
“[My book] reveals 2012 prophecies of major events to come, and how they will scientifically unfold to make 100% sure you survive them. It also reveals a new and advanced science that not only proves religion, but revolutionizes theories on Evolution and Creationism. It reveals all secret truths as never before including 2012 discoveries in genetics, secret revelations about our changing human DNA, the secret origins of Mankind, our Solar System, Planet X, and much more; many of which are hidden within the Bible and ancient texts.” – Colton Bach
Prophecy, proof of religion, the secret origins of man, Planet X … good Lord, Planet X! This is the book you’ve got to have! We continue:
“Sacred ancient knowledge reveals all truths through the secret science of 2012 as never before.” – Colton Bach
Wow — sacred ancient knowledge! What a book!
At the end of the press release we are given two quotes. One from Pope John Paul II and one from Darwin. The Darwin quote is about the eye — it’s frequently taken out of context by idiots to “prove” that Darwin didn’t believe his own theory. We’ve discussed it many times before and it’s included here: Common Creationist Claims Confuted.
The Papal quote is this, but be careful — it comes from a creationist and we haven’t verified its accuracy:
Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish…We need each other to be what we must be, what we are called to be.
We don’t know what to make of any of this, but it’s possible, dear reader, that the work of this mysterious “researcher” may change your life. If that happens, think kindly of your Curmudgeon, and let us know how things are going for you on Planet X.
