Self-Published Genius #83: Logical Creationism

This is the new year’s first 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 Lonnell C. Stewart’s Newly Released “To God Be the Glory Not Evolution” is a Thought-Provoking Discussion that Calls for a Second Look at Scripture’s Logic. It was issued by PR Web, which describes itself as “the leader in online news distribution and publicity.” It says, with some bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

“To God Be the Glory Not Evolution”: a compelling study of creationism vs. evolution. “To God Be the Glory Not Evolution” is the creation of published author Lonnell C. Stewart, a computer scientist and single father of two from Chesterfield, Virginia.

Wowie — the author is a computer scientist. He certainly seems qualified to debunk evolution. The press release quotes the author:

Stewart writes, “In today’s generation, many have resigned to the idea that we as living creatures have evolved from non-living matter. Many have shied away from expressing their true belief, which is often supported by their innate conviction that there is a living God who has self-consciousness similar to our own.”

Are you one of those with such an “innate conviction” but you’re afraid to express it? This is the book for you! The quote from the author goes on:

Oftentimes these individuals cower behind the false teachings of evolution simply because those who espouse these theories purport themselves as being the highly intelligent keepers of the wisdom of the universe. Many people find that they are unable to make logical arguments for the true fact that God and not evolution is the true creator of all things that exist.”

This is fantastic! It’s as if the author knows your thoughts and is talking directly to you. The quote continues:

“In this book, I have laid out some of the core ideas that deal with creation as described in the Bible. This book makes a challenge to anyone who is willing to honestly look at what the Bible says about God and creation, as opposed to what is taught by evolution, and to see which makes more logical sense.

We know what you’re thinking: “Where has this book been all my life?” Anyway, the press release goes on:

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Lonnell C. Stewart’s new book is a prescient argument that gives voice to the unsettling sentiments of many believers who have half-heartedly conceded to the popular theory of the day.

Aha — so that’s who the publisher is. We’ve run into that name before. Here’s their website: Christian Faith Publishing. It leaves no doubt — they’re a vanity publisher. They even let authors pay their fees on a monthly installment plan. Okay, with that, and the press release, we know the book qualifies for our collection. Let’s return to the press release:

Stewart speaks truth to power [Ooooooooooooh!], encouraging others to stand for their convictions as made apparent in the inviolable and authoritative word of God.

That’s all they say, except for a link to a YouTube promotion which doesn’t say much at all. So we looked for the book at Amazon — and we found it! Here it is! They have a “Look inside” feature. The book a full 36 pages long and costs only $10.95 in paperback. Wowie! That’s only about 30 cents a page. There are no customer reviews yet. That means you can be the first!

That’s all the information we can find, but one thing is obvious: You gotta get this book, dear reader.

    Keeper of the Wisdom of the Universe – I’m adding that to my CV right now.

  2. It is always heartwarming and encouraging to see a professed christian tearing down science, education, logic and the scientific method in order to affirm his or her belief in god(s). I’m relieved to know such stalwart and courageous people are still willing to invest money that they could otherwise use to feed the poor or provide housing for the homeless in order to publish books attacking our nation’s universities, scientific organizations and scientists. Bravo.

  3. “Are you one of those with such an “innate conviction” but you’re afraid to express it?”
    No and no.

    “there is a living God”
    How does a dead God look like? Is he referring to Nietzsche?

    “anyone who is willing to honestly look at ….”
    Ah yes, it has been a while since we met this cheapo. I disagree with this fool hence I am not willing to look honestly at his stuff.

    Taking a look inside is worth the effort:

    “Science ….. have grappled with the phenomenon of which came first, the chicken or the egg.”
    Evolution Theory has answered this question since long. Be sure that Lonny doesn’t present it.

    “Some people believe that humans evolve into angels when they die and go to heaven.”
    Perhaps, but it ain’t part of Evolution Theory.

  4. Do go have a look. You will learn among other things that “Some people believe that humans evolved into angels when they die and go to heaven… But the Bible makes a clear distinction between the two.” I find this very reassuring, since I have no wish to evolve into an angel either before or after I die.

    The author also tells us that God created angels long before he got around to creating the world and us on it. But at this point, the free sample ran out, so I’m never going to be able to find out how the author knows what happened before Genesis 1:1 takes up the story.

  5. I can’t remember having seen a 36-page book other than an illustrated children’s story book.

  6. “…Many have shied away from expressing their true belief, …”
    Are you so dimwitted!!! There are hundreds of the delusional xtians around me that always state evilution is of satan! There is no lack of them saying lies for jesus!

  7. Richard Andersen

    This book, like all the others in this genre, will sink without a ripple

    Check out these titles by the same publisher:
    Muscle Testing God’s Creation Paperback 2018 by Dr Terry M Reed

    Bewerearillas, Dogman, Skunk Apes, or Bigfoot and How to Find Them Successfully by Dustin Teudhope

  9. Theodore Lawry

    @Michael Fugate Awesome literature! But try this
    or Google “The Physics of Immortality: Modern Cosmology, God and the Resurrection of the Dead” The author Frank Tipler was a real physicist who did some good work before going off the edge. Note the Amazon reviews from the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal!

  10. “…there is a living God…”

    All gods were living until people stopped believing in them. The Tinkerbell effect is powerful stuff, and fun to try, at home or anywhere.

  11. “the author is a computer scientist”

    It is, of course, far more likely that he wrote one or more computer programs and he imagines that makes him a computer scientist. I have seen a *lot* of computer programmers refer to themselves as computer scientists, despite being scientifically illiterates.

  12. …and yet again we have a professed Bible-believer merrily adding to Scripture, which it says itself is not allowed. Where does it tell us when God created angels?

  13. Ross Cameron

    Ah, if we could only get creos to ‘honestly look at what the Bible says about God and creation’.

  14. Hey, thanks for the hint, Zetopan! I have written a few computer programs (and be sure they worked), so I guess I’m a computer scientist too. Never mind that my last one was 30 years ago.

  15. Eddie Janssen

    “Science ….. have grappled with the phenomenon of which came first, the chicken or the egg.”

    To make the challenge a little more interesting:
    What came first: the chicken or the chicken egg?

  16. cicken or egg
    I remember when I was a kid being teased by an elderly member of the family with the puzzle of the chicken or the egg. I naively answered that the egg was obviously first and that the chicken evolved later. I remember this because I didn’t understand the emotonal reaction. What had I done wrong? Only many years later did I learn to be careful about mentioning evolution.

  17. @PB A very interesting quote. So, why then hasn’t Mr K Ham of Kentucky mentioned this. After all, if the Bible is to taken literally, one can’t imagine how this could have escaped the attention of AIG.

    OOH. Bizarre thought. I’m picturing Ken Ham as a contestant on Mastermind.
