This is a golden age of great science, dear reader. Today we have another 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.
Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution Overthrown, a new book by Dr. Nyonbeor A. Boley Sr., has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
Overthrown? Wowie — what a title! This is the book you’ve been waiting for! But wait — we have the press release, but we need to make sure that this book qualifies for our collection. Was it published by a vanity press? We found the website for Dorrance Publishing Company. It says:
The author pays a fee that covers the cost of mechanical editing, page and cover design, printing and binding, as well as limited promotion, order fulfillment and other administrative services. … Once we have received your manuscript, we will provide you with a full-service publishing proposal that outlines the fees. … Often, we can offer our new authors attractive and flexible, interest-free payment plans. It may be possible for you to get started with as little as the first payment of 24 installments.
Okay, that leaves no doubt — the book qualifies for our collection! Let’s get back to the press release. It tells us:
The first criterion for accepting a theory as being scientific is that the theory must never contradict empirical facts. Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution Overthrown was written to prove that Darwin’s “theory of evolution” is not, in fact, a scientific theory at all. Absolutely essential to all science is the agreement between theory and experimental facts. The opinion that man evolved from molecules contradicts archeological evidence on the origin of the human race.
That is fantastic! Let’s read on:
Discover for yourself what problems – even problems in today’s society – can be traced back to the promotion of Darwin’s “theory.”
Egad — problems in today’s society are Darwin’s fault! Eagerly, we hunted for the book at Amazon — and we found it! Here it is: Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution Overthrown. It’s 152 pages long and only $14.00 in paperback. There are no customer reviews yet.
You’ve got to be wondering — who is this brilliant author? The press release informs us:
Dr. Nyonbeor A. Boley Sr. is a Harvard trained physician and global clinical research scholar with additional degrees from the Johns Hopkins University (MS Bioscience Regulatory Affairs/Clinical Development of Drugs and Biologics) and MGH Institute of Health Professions (MS Clinical Investigation). … Currently, he serves as principal investigator of special projects with the National Institute of Health (NIH).
Gasp — the author isn’t the usual maniac in a shack. He’s real! With a résumé like that we assumed he’d be in Wikipedia, but be couldn’t find him. Maybe he’s been erased!
Well, dear reader, that’s all the information we can find, but it’s more than enough to get you to buy the book. Go ahead — you know you want to.
