It’s been more than two months since we had a new addition to our series about Self-Published Geniuses. This is 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 we found today is unlike anything we’ve ever encountered. To begin with, it comes from a source we never heard of before, called EIN Presswire. They describe themselves as: “the world’s leading online newswire and news distribution service.” Oh, wait — they say: “We are similar to Cision and PR Newswire in that we publish and distribute press releases, but we have our own proprietary and unique distribution platform and we focus on distribution for small and mid-sized companies.” It’s the same kind of thing we usually encounter when we learn of self-published books, so we know what we’re dealing with.
The press release is titled The greatest mysteries of all times. As we learned a bit later, it’s also the title of the book being promoted. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The latest book by Pierre A. Kandorfer portrays some of the greatest mysteries of all times. Where did we come from? What is the origin of life? How and when was our universe created?
Big mysteries indeed! Then it says:
Charles Darwin’s evolution theory claims that our universe created itself “out of noting.” [BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!] According to most school books, life was created from dirt, water, and a lot of time through the so-called “primordial soup” around four billion years ago. Secularists want us to believe that everything in our universe is material. [No energy?] Is there any scientific proof of that?
Deep questions, obviously from a deep thinker! After that the press release tells us:
Over one century since the introduction of the evolution theory [Over a century and a half!], not a single aspect of the claim has been independently confirmed. [Gasp!] Still, our school kids are being spoon-fed with the evolution theory, while the Biblical creationism is outlawed in our education system. At the same time, Darwin’s critics face censorship in our public life.
Egad, censorship! That explains why we never encounter creationism on the internet. The press release continues:
The supposedly “scientifically provable” evolution, the big bang, and scientific rationalism theories remain twisted. These deceitful theories are defying common sense, logic, and any reliable, methodical proof every honest scientific undertaking relies upon. [Yeah!] What is left? Thousands of theories with no proof, confirmation, or logical explanation. They are nothing but the greatest mysteries of all time.
Thousands of junk theories! It’s an outrage! Let’s read on:
Pierre A. Kandorfer analyzes this scientific fraud systematically and investigates the never-ending problem of the evolution claim. Pierre Kandorfer is a veteran journalist with thirty-five years of a media background. He wrote thousands of articles, hundreds of TV programs, and over a dozen books such as [Who cares?] … in addition to some media textbooks. Pierre’s books are available at NeverGiveUpYourDream.US, Amazon, and many other booksellers.
Impressive! Hey — when we found the book at Amazon — Here it is! — we discovered that NeverGiveUpYourDream.US is the publisher. When you look for their website, all you find is a press release for this book. Everything points to one guy — Kandorfer. This is the ultimate in self-published books. Anyway, the book costs only $8.95 in paperback, and it’s a full 100 pages long. An incredible bargain! Oh — there’s no “Look inside” feature, and no reviews.
The last paragraph of the press release tells us about Kandorfer, the author:
Pierre taught media communications, acted as Dir. of Programming of a nationwide TV broadcasting, worked as TV host and producer of a movie series, and hundreds of TV shows. He also is a commercial pilot, speaks several languages, and is a proud Christian and passionate Constitutionalist.
What a guy! That’s all there is to the press release, and it seems to be signed by Kandorfer and his publishing company. He may be the most impressive self-published genius we’ve ever encountered, so go ahead and buy the book. Oh yes, and tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya!
Addendum: We just discovered that two years ago we blogged about another book by the same author — see #80: Science in the Bible.
