In this most important contribution to the Darwinist Treasury of Science Miracles. St Wallace explains in his own words how the only recorded event of malarial fever cognitive enhancement enabled him to have a eureka moment that facilitated his replication of Patrick Matthew's (1831) prior published theory. In fact, this was a duel miracle because, Prideaux John Selby, the Chief editor of the journal that published Wallace's (1855) Sarawak paper on natural selection, had read and cited Matthew's (1831) book many times in 1842, which was the very same year Darwin supposedly penned his private unpublished essay on the same topic! And Selby was a friend of Darwin's father, a friend of Darwin's friend Leonard Jenyns and sat on many important science committees with Darwin. So much then for Darwin's and Wallace's self-serving fallacy spreading that Matthew's book went unread by any naturalists known to them and that it failed it influence anyone.

Should you be surprised to find in this book that Wallace simply describes the originator, Matthew, as someone who failed to develop his discovery further?

Should you be surprised that despite the fact he knew that according to the Arago Effect laws of priority - as approved, fully accepted and applied by the Royal Society - being first is everything, that Wallace fails to admit that Patrick Matthew has full priority over himself and Darwin?

If not then you are just the kind of person we are looking for. Why not come and worship with us at the Church of the Immaculate Conception of a Prior Published Theory. Find us on Google. All credulous Darwin and Wallace idolaters are warmly welcome.

But, whatever else you do, you must never commit the heretical sin of reading Sutton's seditious research on this topic.Nullius in Verba - Darwin's Greatest Secret

His views changed the world of science. when history moves forward its often only one or two names from any discipline/genre that is remembered, Wallace was actually one of the key influential figures of the time - his writing is also vivid and honest and makes for a good read.

Now I have read this book I must really get down to reading Darwins "Theory of the Species". The only let down off Wallace's book was the last chapter regarding consciousness. The only problem I had was some of the words used even with my Kindle Fire there was no definition of the word, bearing in mind that the book was written over 120 years ago this can be expected.
