Today we have a spectacular 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 is titled “No more doubt – Science Confirms the Bible” book finally proves evolution theory is a hoax, issued by OpenPR. It says, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Pierre Kandorfer describes the biggest fraud in human history and sets the record straight. [Ooooooooooooh!] The latest book by Pierre A. Kandorfer delivers the latest proof [Proof!] that science confirms the accuracy of the Bible.
Excited? Of course you are. The press release says:
Our secular society wants to make us believe that the Bible represents only an irreconcilable conflict between “science vs. religion”. This atheist worldview is suggesting a dispute between scientific facts versus a religious belief system. Nothing can be further from the truth, and scientific facts can prove it.
Wowie! Then we’re told:
Incidentally, the proof of Bible’s historical correctness is by far no more a scientific problem. This question has been decisively answered decades ago. What remains, is only the interpretation of scientific facts, depending on people’s worldview.
That’s what ol’ Hambo is always telling us. It all depends on your worldview. The press release continues:
It is true that the Bible is not a “science book”. At the same time, we are not aware of any evidence that the Bible contradicts the science. Actually, just the opposite. The book assembles all the facts we must know.
Fantastic! The bible doesn’t contradict science. So it’s flat-Earth, firmament, Flood — the whole biblical ball o’ wax. Isn’t that wonderful? Let’s read on:
The book documents hundreds of scientific facts the Bible mentioned already thousands of years ago. Pierre A. Kandorfer compares these facts with the “evolution theory” by Charles Darwin, which many scientists now call a hoax and a complete fraud. [Yeah!] Don’t be fooled! This book will finally set the record straight.
Finally! Then we’re told that “The paperback is available at Amazon and other book sellers and costs only $9.95.” So we looked for it there — and here it is! For $9.95 you get all 130 pages. There are no reviews yet — you could be the first!
Hey, wait! We have the press release, but we need to find out who the publisher is so we can be certain that this book belongs in our collection. Amazon says: “Publisher: Independently published.” We don’t know what that means, but it’s good enough for us!
You gotta be wondering about the author. Who is he? The press release informs us:
Pierre Kandorfer is a veteran journalist with thirty-five years of media background. Being half French, half Austrian, he grew up in the middle of Europe and has written a series of books and thousands of articles. Pierre Kandorfer has a Ph.D. [Wow!], used to be President and Dir. Of Programming of EuroChannel Broadcasting, speaks several languages, taught Communications at a college in Europe, and is considered a media analyst with special focus on media, society and politics.
We found some info about him here: Pierre A. Kandorfer, Ph.D.. It says his PhD is in “Communication and Media Studies,” but we’re not told where he earned it. Who cares?
Okay, dear reader. That’s all we’ve got, but it’s more than enough. Go ahead — buy the book. You won’t regret it.
