Self-Published Genius #113: Darwin’s Big Bang

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.

  1. Pierrot asks a decent question indeed:

    “Is there any scientific proof of that?”
    Then I ask: is there any scientific proof that our Universe contains immaterial things? And what exactly does scientific proof mean? Has Pierrot ever considered the possibility that science doesn’t have anything to say about this topic?
    Fortunately for us he very quickly produces some prime creacrap again:

    “scientific rationalism theories remain ….. are defying ….. any reliable, methodical proof every honest scientific undertaking relies upon.”
    Yes, my friends, take a few moments to ponder this. Every honest scientific undertaking results in scientific irrationalism.

    He also wrote this book – which may be autobiographical…

    Idiots From Hell: Defying Lunatics Among Us January 2019
    Throughout the history of human civilization, there were always many stupid, unreasonable, mean, violent, annoying, and deeply egotistical people around. They always were a minority and did not bother the rest of humanity much at all. Nowadays, however, our “modern lifestyle” with “me first” attitude, increased the number of idiots of all sorts to an almost unbearable level. Not just in the society at large, politics, and all aspects of our culture. Even among our acquaintances, best friends, and also within our own family, we face weird attitudes we can only summarize as “idiotic.” Behavioral research proves that the amount of silly, deceptive, self-centered, and totally unreasonably acting people with a “profound intellectual disability condition” is on the rise. Their total misjudgment of the world, unreasonable expectations, foul language, and idiotic antics accumulate to an agonizing frustration for all of us. Idiots from hell! This book analyzes the problem and shows practical alternatives how to deal with idiots around us.

    Everything he believes is proven by “true” science because “true” science is anything he believes to be true.

    A kook. Wouldn’t know evidence from shinola. The world is full of them. It’s apparently his money. Everybody needs a hobby. It was either this or collecting matchbox covers, and in a lifetime full of wrong decisions, what’s one more?

    Like many cranks, Kandorfer has his finger in too many pies. Cranks wildly overestimate their talents. So, in addition to being incompetent when it comes to basic 101 evolution, Kandorfer is also “an internationally renowned neo-impressionist painter.”

    If you’re masochistically inclined, why not go online and see a few samples from Kandorfer’s oeuvre? The Meister pointedly shows a classic dauber like Georges Seurat how it’s really done.

  5. Let’s try something different, or at the very least, let me try again – With the anonymous descriptive appellation of identity that in the scrum of so-called intellectual discourse is nothing more than opinion which is a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce certainty, we all falter to reveal who really are in addressing the public at large, using false names or makeshift identities of time and place to make it seem we are the more accurate and the more profound of the people we disagree with.
    It makes one think of the trite, the trembled speak, the trendy fictions of tortured inquiries of the meaning of life thrown out like so much slop in the streets where we all walk and talk but that nevertheless falls on our skimpy collared necks as we huddle our ears to hear on our latest cell phones the latest gossip of the latest lies and the spurious disquisitions of our sundered, empty lives.
    Each of you is there. Provided you have the resolve and intelligence to know it. Otherwise you are meaningless drones that human history has too frequently subjected to the desires of religious and secular dictators that soil history with wars, criminal superstitions, and the endless art of fomenting ignorance that becomes the daily norm of our reality of being, with no future of hope to assuage us.
    Things abstruse and remotely thoughtful of the slenderest inquiries that change all too quickly in the world of a today already shaped by discoveries of tomorrow should be borne with at least a small grace of comedic gift. It would make everything a bit more tolerable, for the past remembers only the miserable slights that engage our memories in the frail absolution of our judgments of who we are and who we are not.
    So think of this – image that of musicians playing pianos, string and wind instruments, drums and cymbals in the 18th and 29th centuries of compositions by Vivaldi, Listz, Tachikovsky, Beethoven, Strauss, Chopin heard through a fluke of time and place the music of the 20th century musicians and composures such as Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Stan Kenton, Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, George Gershwin, Anita O’Day, June Christy how it would have sounded to them, an avant garde screech of atonal counterpoints and harmonic rifts and trills and contrapuntal distortions that would have repulsed them but attracted them at the same time, giving them an episodic epiphany of what was capable and what was coming for future musicians and composures, and being musicians, grinning and trying to play it.

  6. @MichaelF: “Everything he believes is proven by “true” science because “true” science is anything he believes to be true.”
    Indeed. Apparently Pierrot realizes that using “true science” makes him look ridiculous. So what should a solid kook do? Pierrot doesn’t really have a clue, as usual.

  7. Kandorfer is confused about what Darwin proposed, since Darwin lived long before the discovery of the cosmic microwave background radiation, the expansion of the universe, and quantum mechanics, all of which I’m sure would confuse Kandorfer even more.

    Kandoofus wrote Idiots from Hell. How much you want to bet he voted for Trump and will vote for Trump again? Willful blindness there.
