Self-Published Genius #37: God Is Real!

This is a new addition to our series about Self-Published Geniuses, where we bring you news of authors with a vanity press book in which the author claims to have made paradigm-shattering discoveries, and announces his work by hiring a press release service.

The press release for this one is titled New Xulon Book Discusses God’s Role Creating The Universe, from something called Press Release Rocket. It says, with some bold font added by us for emphasis:

Within the pages of E. Gale’s new book, God Is Real! … readers will discover that the intricacies of our body’s systems and abilities of our cells to follow complex DNA codes all point to the existence of a transcendent God – who created our universe and all that dwells within it.

Oooooooooooooh — this is the book we’ve been hoping for! But before proceeding further, we need to confirm that it qualifies for our collection. Was it published by a vanity press? No problem. The website of Xulon Press proudly declares:

Xulon Press is the largest, most experienced Christian owned and operated print-on-demand self publisher of Christian books. So if you’re a Christian author looking for a Christian self publishing company, join the thousands of Christian authors who have chosen Xulon Press.

Okay. We’ve got a vanity press book and we’ve got the author’s press release. Let’s dig in and see what else it says

This in-depth study of what current science knows about the creation of life investigates the varied misconceptions of evolution, and it shines the light of truth on them. Author wants to show the world the breadth of God’s power and the depth of His invention – and to prove that God is Real!

It’s an in-depth study — isn’t that great? We found it at Amazon: God Is Real! It’s 216 pages and it costs only $15.49 in paperback — what a bargain! There are no reviews yet.

Let’s read some more from the press release:

As a product of the public school system, E. Gale became an atheist in high school and remained an unbeliever until she was forty-eight years old – when a friend shared the gospel message with her. Relying on what she was taught in biology classes, she had opposed Christianity and believed she was doing others a favor by mocking their belief in Jesus. She wrote this book because our public schools and the media have taught everyone to ignore the evidence for God, and she wants to prevent this from happening to others.

The author went to public schools and became an atheist; but then she was saved! What a thrilling story! The press release continues:

She uses exciting recent findings and experience as a teacher to take the reader on a journey to the smallest inner workings of life. She cleverly illustrates how God’s infinite power produces what couldn’t happen from random chance.

The author is a teacher. Isn’t that wonderful? There’s no doubt about it, dear reader. This is the book you’ve been waiting for. Get it now!

Your Curmudgeon is pleased to have brought you this information.

  1. Great “books” at that site!
    Check these out:

    but my favorite
    Science Declares Our Universe IS Intelligently Designed
    by Robert A. Hermann

    He has constructed the only known mathematical model of the “Theory of Everything” – his General Grand Unification Model or GGU leading to his General Intelligent Design model or GID, but has to publish in Creation Research Society Quarterly because all those mean atheist scientists don’t want there to be a god.

  2. Why is it that whenever we read quotes like this, “…and remained an unbeliever until she was forty-eight years old – when a friend shared the gospel message with her”, we never get the full story, such as …and remained an unbeliever until she was forty-eight years old – when after receiving a significant blow to the head a friend shared the gospel message with her and suddenly it seemed to make sense“?

    I often think that what they mean by “unbeliever” is that they were a Presbyterian or Catholic until they became a true Christian.

  4. Yes TomS that is it. Most were brought up in the church, but for whatever reason drifted away until BAM! they are “born again” and then feel the need to discard everything from their previous life whether it is useful or not. I don’t know how many times I have seen a creationist start their apologetic spiel with “I was an atheist and an evolutionist, but…..” It is the apologetic version of “once upon a time” and the universal start to every story.

  5. I suspect you may be right… especially considering how clear the choices really are.

  6. @michaelfugate
    It would be mildly interesting for one of those “former evolutionists” to explain to us what evolution is.
    It’d bet that it was “we came from monkeys”.

  7. Many of the seem to hang out at creation.com
    Like this guy http://creation.com/gary-parker
    or this guy http://creation.com/richard-peachey

  8. After a while spent listening to these people, you just throw up your hands. Or just throw up. The latter is one of the signs of concussion, after all, and beating one’s head against a wall is a good way to get one.

  9. Can someone explain why nearly all “anti-evolutionists” clearly demonstrate that they know nothing about evolution with a statement like “…it couldn’t happen by random chance…”.

  10. @abeastwood
    Is it possible that this is an unwitting holdover from the time a couple of centuries back when the only opposition to theism came from Epicureanism,
    which attempted to explain the world as the random motions of atoms? One of the ideas was that living things were formed with random combinations of body parts, which in a kind of “survival of the fittest”, those random combinations which could survive, did. I am confident that the 19th century theists were familiar with this, and identified evolution with Epicureanism. Of course the current opponents of evolution are not as literate as the 19th century opponents.

  11. Of course the current opponents of evolution are not as literate as the 19th century opponents.

    You can say that again!

  12. Wow, MIchaelF, this one looks like a total gas:

    http://www.xulonpress.com/bookstore/bookdetail.php?PB_ISBN=9781626974593&HC_ISBN=

    It contains both “an in-depth adventure into the unseen world of quantum physics in our search to find God” and “in-depth look into many of the moral issues in our society today.”
    In just 256 pages! Go figure – my textbook on quantum physics needs more than 400 and is only “Elementary Modern Physics”.
    The genius of these guys is beyond dispute.

    That Gary Parker link also makes me curious – he has asked the question that leaves us at SC’s blog baffled again and again:

    What is creation science?

    So expectantly, not to say enthusiastically I clicked again and was not disappointed:

    “Product not found”

  13. I have a copy of Gary Parker’s Creation: The Facts of Life on my bookshelf. I mourn for the trees that make up its pages.

  14. That Gary Parker link also makes me curious – he has asked the question that leaves us at SC’s blog baffled again and again:
    What is creation science?

    Gary Parker used to be at the Institute for Creation “Research.” He has authored and coauthored some of the early “Scientific” Creationist materials; one of the major ones being What is Creation Science by Henry M. Morris and Gary E. Parker. I Still have a partial copy in my files.

    If you head over to the ICR website, you can find a number of his writings back in the 1980s when “Scientific” Creationism was becoming a national nuisance.
