INTRODUCING WHAT IS ARGUABLY THE MOST SENSATIONAL DISCOVERY OF INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIABLE PROOF OF HISTORIC SCIENCE FRAUD SINCE THE DISCOVERY OF THE PILTDOWN MAN FRAUD

Hello, my name is Mike Sutton. I set up this website in the interests of the veracious history of scientific discovery and for those working in the field of plagiarising science fraud research.


Get the Facts, not the Fact Denial Rhetoric of Biased Charles Darwin Superfans


The world's leading Darwinists, including Royal Society Darwin Medal Winners Sir Gavin de Beer and Ernst Mayr, informed the World that no one whatsoever / no biologist read Patrick Matthew's (1831) original prior-published theory of evolution by natural selection before Darwin and Wallace (1858) and Darwin (1859) replicated it and claimed it as their own. They are all wrong.


Whilst on this website, you can read newly unearthed findings on what is not, as credulous or dishonest Darwin Industry fans and scholars, want you to believe, just an innocent amazingly co-incidental dual replication, but Charles Darwin's and Alfred Wallace's deliberate plagiarising science fraud by glory theft of Patrick Matthew's original prior published theory, unique terminology, supporting examples and essential explanatory analogy of differences between natural and artificial selection.


You may be interested to learn about my remarkable new discovery that Darwin’s and Wallace's friends, associates, influencers and influencer’s influencers both read and then cited Matthew's (1831) book containing his theory, before Darwin or Wallace so much as wrote a word on the topic in their private notebooks. That unique discovery was made with the IDD Big Data research method. Furthermore, you can assess the evidence that means it is proven, with reference to the historical publication record, that Darwin lied when he claimed alternately that no naturalists / no one whatsoever read Matthew’s original ideas before Darwin and Wallace replicated them. Matthew had already informed him that the exact opposite is true. Therefore, if the remarkably simple yet precise method used to make these discoveries is of interest, 'Distinguished Professor of Psychology' Dr Mark Griffiths and I have written an expert peer reviewed academic article for you. It describes the IDD method and provides further examples of its unmatched myth busting power. Most importantly, we now know of the previously buried literature on who read and cited Matthew pre-Darwin's and Wallace's replication in 1858 and Darwin's more detailed replication of 1859. Thankfully, we now know at last where to find that literature and what it contains. However, the IDD method no longer works. We don't know why. Perhaps the loss will not be permanent and is due to Google handing its search engine over to its autonomous deep-learning AI program, Rank Brain. You can read about all of that, and the IDD method, in our article here.


In the interests of a veracious history of scientific discovery and influence, I feel very lucky that I was able to exploit the window of opportunity Google provided before that window was closed to us. The easily independently verifiable references to the newly unearthed historic literature, where Matthew's 1831 book and the ideas in it, were in fact cited before 1858 can be found in my book Nullius in Verba: Darwin's Greatest Secret. 



Ok, so that's the "how I did" it bit explained. Now let's continue from the top. The simple fact is that new Big Data analysis has uncovered dreadfully unwelcome facts in the publication record. Those independently verifiable facts completely disconfirm prior "expert knowledge" claims that no naturalist / no one whatsoever read Patrick Matthew's (1831) prior published original theory of evolution by natural selection before Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace replicated and then each claimed it as their own supposedly independent conception.


As a result of my original research, we now newly know that excluding many prominent advertisements for it, at least 25 people cited Matthew's book before Darwin's and Wallace's 1858 and Darwin's 1859 replications. Seven were naturalists. Darwin knew four of those seven and three of those four played well known prominent roles influencing Darwin and Wallace. Furthermore, to necessarily repeat the point already made, it is proven that Darwin lied when he claimed Matthew's theory as his and Wallace's own on illicit grounds, being against the Arago Principle in science, that no one read it before they replicated it. In fact, in 1860, Matthew had informed Darwin in the published press that the exact opposite was the case and that naturalists, including the famous John Loudon, had read it.


What we newly know from the 19th century publication record is that besides Loudon, who edited Blyth's influential papers of 1835 and 1836 (which influenced both Darwin and Wallace) their friends, influencers, influencer's influencers - including Selby the journal editor of Wallace’s famous Sarawak paper (which we know from his letters Darwin read before penning the Origin of Species in 1859) cited Matthew pre-1858. Moreover, the geologist and famous editor and author of the Vestiges of Creation, Robert Chambers (Wallace's greatest influencer, who also influenced and met with Darwin pre-1858) had read and prior cited Mathew's (1831) book and mentioned the ideas in it in the published literature.


All those prominent citations (and many more besides) of Matthew's 1831 book by naturalists and others were published long before Darwin or Wallace so much as wrote a word on the topic in their private notebooks, never mind anything they had published on it.


These two expert peer reviewed academic journal articles set the record straight with the 'New data':


1. On Knowledge Contamination: New Data Challenges Claims of Darwin’s and Wallace’s Independent Conceptions of Matthew’s Prior-Published Hypothesis


2. The hi-tech detection of Darwin’s and Wallace’s possible science fraud: Big data criminology re-writes the history of contested discovery.


A verifiable timeline Power Point presentation on scientists and historians who have reacted to the Supermyth of Darwin's originality and on Darwin's lies about, and plagiarism of, Matthew's original breakthrough, including the New Data on who we now newly know read it who Darwin and Wallace knew and was influenced by, can be found here.


Mike Sutton November 2018.


Read the newly discovered paradigm puncturing facts about who Darwin and Wallace knew and were influenced by, and who their influencers were influenced by, who really did read Patrick Matthew’s (1831) prior published original conception of macroevolution by natural selection before Darwin and Wallace (1858) and Darwin (1859) replicated it years later. See the absolute proof that Darwin deliberately lied in his own defence by claiming Matthew's original breakthrough went unread until after his and Wallace's claimed independent conceptions and, otherwise, amazingly miraculous dual independent replications of the full theory, supporting examples, unique analogies and highly idiosyncratic original terminology 27 years later.

Darwin lied about who really did read Patrick Matthew's prior-published theory of macroevolution by natural selection. That fact is now in a peer reviewed science journal - Here


Surpassing the failure of traditional Darwin scholar rubber thimble paper turning in the libraries of the world, the cutting edge BigData IDD research method, exploiting the high technology of the Google library project of some 35 million searchable publications, enabled me to originally discover facts that 100 per cent  prove Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace fallaciously claimed that no one read Matthew's prior-published discovery and explanatory examples of natural selection before they replicated both. And the "New Facts" 100 per cent prove it, because the proof is in the previously undiscovered 19th century printed words in publications that absolutely prove Matthew's book, and the original ideas in it, were cited by influential naturalists known both to them and their influencers, before they replicated those same ideas - claiming they alighted upon them independently of Matthew's prior publication of the same. Darwin would  later fallaciously excuse himself from 1860 onward by claiming those ideas were unread before he and Wallace replicated them. Darwin wrote that lie after Matthew had informed him of two influential naturalists who read and understood his original ideas, and their significance, and that his book had been banned, because of those same bombshell ideas, by Perth Public Library in Scotland.


This website explains the significance of the New Data about who Darwin and Wallace each knew who really did read Patrick Matthew's (1831) original and full prior published hypothesis of natural selection, and then influenced their thinking on the topic, before Darwin and Wallace (1858) replicated and claimed Matthew's ideas as their own independent discovery.


  Evolutionary biologists appear to be in a classic 'state of denial' over the  new facts about who Darwin and Wallace knew who did read and then cite Matthew's ideas before 1858.


You are invited to peruse what I have written on this website, study the New Data, and make up your own mind.

In 1831, Patrick Matthew's book 'On Naval Timber and Arboriculture' was published. It contained the first full conception of the theory of macroevolution by natural selection. Matthew uniquely named it 'the natural process of selection'. Then, 27 years later, Darwin replicated Matthew’s original idea and many of his explanatory examples. Darwin claimed to have done so independently of anyone else, failed to cite Matthew and uniquely four-word-shuffled Matthew’s unique term into 'process of natural selection' – which is the only possible grammatically correct equivalent use of the same four words in Matthew's original term for his discovery. The naturalist John Loudon - a world renowned and noted botanist whose work was well known to Darwin and his best friend Joseph Hooker,  his father William Hooker and their mutual friend John Lindley - published his review of Matthew's book. Loudon (1832) wrote that Matthew appeared to have something original to say on 'the origin of species' no less!


On 9th January 2016, (Sutton 2016) it was discovered that, for 13 years, at great reputational expense to Matthew, Professor John Lindley - a correspondent of both Darwin and Wallace with a deep interest in evolution of species -  hoodwinked the world that he and Lobb and Veitch were the first to introduce the hugely admired giant Californian redwood into Britain and the first to propagate them. The Lindley-Lobb Myth was only debunked in the press in 1866 -  three years after Veitch died, two years after Lobb's demise and exactly a year after Lindley's death. In fact, Patrick Matthew and his son John are proven to be first to introduce the giant redwoods into Britain. They did so in 1843. And Patrick Matthew was first to propagate them. Most significantly, the magazine, of which Lindley was Editor, had long held a letter from Matthew that proved it!


The obvious and significant facts reveal that Patrick Matthew was a repeat victim of glory theft by fallacy coining - first by Lindley (1853) then by his correspondent Alfred Wallace (1855; 1858),  then by their mutual correspondent Darwin (1858, 1859). In addition,  in 1867,  Matthew was victimized again. This time by unknown members of the British Association for Advancement of Science - who platform blocked him from giving his conference-accepted paper on his prior-published discovery of macroevolution by natural selection  at the Annual Meeting, held that year in Dundee (See: Sutton 2016).  Because he was prevented from presenting his paper, the rules of the 'British Association' ensured it could not be included in the published conference papers. Notably, Lindley (then deceased),  Wallace and Darwin were all members of the 'British Association' as were Darwin's friends and associates, who were also present. Wallace was present, as was Charles Lyell (guest of honour) and Robert Chambers. This multiple victimisation of Matthew, at different times, but for the same academic 'crime' of significant and delinquent 'immortal great glory theft ', by Lindley, Wallace, Darwin and members of the 'British Association' - three keenly co-operative co-correspondents and a science institution, with a shared understanding that species evolved, is most remarkably unique in the history of scientific discovery if it is only a mere multiple coincidence.



Shocking News for all of us who thought we knew that Darwin discovered natural selection


The 155 year old paradigm that Darwin and Wallace discovered natural selection independently of Matthew's (1831) prior and original publication of the full hypothesis is in fact premised on credulous Darwinist belief in the self-serving lie written by their namesake in his own defence in the Gardener's Chronicle in 1860, and in his subsequent lies from the third edition of the Origin of Species onward (Darwin 1861), that no naturalist read Matthew's original ideas on natural selection until he brought them to Darwin's attention in 1860.


The independently verifiable facts take us in the opposite direction from disconfirmed Darwinist spin.


In point of fact, Darwin knew otherwise when he wrote his lies, about Matthew's ideas being unread, because Matthew clearly informed Darwin, before he wrote them, that naturalists - such as John Loudon, for example -  had read those ideas. Indeed, as Matthew further  explained to Darwin in 1860, an unnamed naturalist, a professor of an esteemed institution, told Matthew that he was afraid to teach the scientific ideas in his 1831 book for fear of pillory punishment for religious heresy. Moreover, Matthew had also prior-informed Darwin that because of his original and heretical ideas on natural selection that his book was banned by the Public Library of Perth in Scotland. Curiously, at the time of writing these words (September 2015), these are disconfirming facts among many others selectively ignored by cherry-picking Darwinists in the highly specific context of their strategic and successful one-sided-spin telling of the story of their namesake's claimed 'independent' discovery of Matthew's prior published ideas. In sum, ludicrous though their claims are, because Matthew's book would have been read in its entirety by many people, including naturalists, Darwinist published spin on this topic, written in the context of denying the existence of any probable routes of Matthewian knowledge contamination of the pre-1858 works of Darwin and Wallace, is premised upon misrepresenting the significance of the suitability of the title of Matthew's book 'On naval Timber and Arboriculture' as one that naturalists would not read, and that even if they did read it they would not appreciate the significance of Matthew’s discovery within its pages, or else would not read the arguments where they were placed within it. Those fallacies were published to prop-up further fallacious yet unequivocal arguments made by Darwin and leading Darwinists that, variously, no naturalists, no biologists, no one known to Darwin or Wallace, or even - apparently most stupidly of all - no one whatsoever, read Matthew's (1831) unique ideas on natural selection before 1860.









































Prior to the publication in 2014 and 2016 publication of the original findings in my book - Nullius in Verba: Darwin's greatest secret - the history of discovery of natural selection was founded upon the fixed-false-belief that no biologists, no naturalists and certainly one known to Darwin or Wallace had read Patrick Matthew's(1831) full prior published hypothesis of natural selection before Darwin's and Wallace's (1858) and Darwin's (1859) claimed independent discoveries of the same explanation for all life on Earth.


In fact, prior to their replication of Matthew's 'natural process of selection', along with many of his confirmatory examples and his unique explanatory analogy, Darwin/Wallace corresponded with, were editorially assisted by, admitted to being influenced by and met with other naturalists who - it is newly discovered - had read and cited Matthew's book long before 1858. Of that number, several mentioned Matthew's original ideas on natural selection and one who cited the book, Robert Chambers, went on to write the best-selling book on evolution - the Vestiges of Creation in 1844, which influenced Darwin and Wallace on the topic and was said to have put evolution 'in the air' in the mid 19th century. Hence, probable Matthewian knowledge contamination of the minds of Darwin and Wallace creates a new paradigm in the history of scientific discovery,


To find out about the new hi-tech, BigData research method that discovered the New Data, which debunks, with independently verifiable hard facts, the old unevidenced 'expert' majority view of Darwin's and Wallace's supposed dual, vexatiously anomalous and paradoxical immaculate conceptions of Matthew's prior published hypothesis of natural selection you have arrived at the right website. Please read on and then explore the other pages.

The old - now debunked - so called 'expert' majority view of the discovery of natural selection was that no one read Matthew's original ideas, certainly no naturalists read them, and that Darwin discovered the theory, independently of Matthew's 1831 book, slowly from reading and then thinking about the published literature some years after his voyage on the Beagle, starting around 1837. The same credulous 'experts' believed Wallace's fantastical story to have discovered the theory whilst in a state of malarial fever. In fact, Wallace's (1855) Sarawak paper editor had read and cited Matthew's (1832) book many times in 1842.


To repeat the points made in my introduction to the New Data, above, this paradigm changing new discovery in the history of science busts the unevidenced 155 year old myth, started by Darwin in 1860, that Darwin and Wallace each discovered the theory of natural selection independently of Matthew. Moreover, Darwin's fallacious claim, that before 1860 no naturalist had read Matthew's ideas, is proven, by independently verifiable historic publications, to have been just one of six plainly deliberate and self-serving lies he told in order to achieve priority over the naturalist whose ideas he replicated and referred to, audaciously, as "my theory".

Article from the DailyTelegraph Wednesday May 28 2014, p. 12. by the Telegraph's Science Editor Sarah Knapton.


Darwin 'stole' theory of natural selection


Charles Darwin lifted his theory of natural selection from the book by a Scottish fruit farmer, a researcher has claimed.


Decades before On the Origin of Species appeared in 1859, Patrick Matthew  wrote of “the natural process of selection”, explaining how “a law universal in nature” ensured the survival of the fittest.


Darwin, although accepting that Matthew “anticipated” the theory, always denied plagiarism, maintaining that he arrived at the theory indpendently.


But Dr Mike Sutton, a criminolgy expert at Nottingham Trent University believes that Darwin must not only have been aware of Matthew's 1831 book, On Naval Timber and Arboriculture, but borrowed from it heavily.


He has spent years cross-referencing passages in both books, checking citations and studying the figures who influenced both men, and claims to have unearthed information which proves the naturalist lied.


“I have no doubt, based on the weight of new evidence, that Darwin read Matthew's book and then went on to replicate his discovery and key themes.” Dr Sutton said. “Without Patrick Matthew, The Origin of Species would never have been written.”

Darwin's fraud and Nullius in Verba in the national press

 

Just as new DNA analysis is changing traditional forensic science, in 2014 I pioneered the use of newly available "big data" analysis of the literature to expose the world's greatest  science fraud.

The great science myth, started by Darwin and Wallace, that they each independently discovered the theory of natural selection with no prior knowledge of Patrick Matthew's earlier publication of it, based on the premise spread by Darwin as a lie, is now completely disproven by newly discovered evidence of who they knew who read Matthew's book. We now know these other naturalists and agriculturalists read it because they cited it before Darwin or Wallace wrote a word on the topic. The direct influence of those who cited Matthew's book on Darwin’s and Wallace's work, the damming results of a computer assisted plagiarism analysis, the discovery of six lies that Darwin told to archive the successful spread of the myth of their primacy over Matthew, evidence that Wallace extorted money from Darwin and his friends to keep silent about his role and Darwin's dishonesty, and proof that all eight of Darwin's excuses for supposedly not having read Matthew’s book are fallacious. Darwin also engaged in a protracted and desperate attempt to have the codified rules of scientific priority changed so that better known scientists such as he would be awarded priority over lesser known first discoverers such as Matthew.

As said, Darwin claimed, and Wallace relied on the claim, that they failed to hear of Matthew’s book because no naturalist known to them had read it. Darwin lied! But for 154 years the scientific community simply took his word for it.

Contrary to current Darwinist "knowledge" that no one read Matthew's book, pioneering big data analysis of 30 million+ publications reveals that before Darwin penned the ‘Origin of Species’ at least 52 people read Matthew’s (1831) book ‘On Naval Timber and Arboriculture’, 25 actually cited it in the published literature! Moreover, 19 of those who read it were in Darwin's inner social circle! Of the seven naturalists now newly known to have cited Matthew's book in print, three played pivotal roles at the epicentre of Darwin's and Wallace’s published and unpublished work on natural selection before the ‘Origin of Species’ was first published in 1859.

The existenc of many routes for knowledge contamination from Matthew to Darwin and Wallace is thus uniquely proven in this ground-breaking book, which demontrates that Matthew - on a balance or reasonable probability - influenced both Darwin and Wallace through three major naturalists who cited his book: John Loudon, Prideaux John Selby and Robert Chambers.

Loudon cited Matthew's book in 1832 and then went on to edit and publish Blyth’s highly influential papers of 1835 and 1837 on species variety and organic evolution! In the third edition of the Origin of Species Darwin fully admitted that Blyth was his most helpful and most prolific informant on the subject of species as it related to organic evolution. Chambers cited Matthew's book in 1832 before writing the best-selling 'Vestiges of Creation' in 1844. And both Darwin and Wallace admitted the huge influence of Robert Chambers’s ‘Vestiges of Creation’ on their own work in the field of natural selection. Selby, who cited Matthew’s book many times in 1842, went on to edit and publish Wallace's famous Sarawak paper of 1855! 

Having destroyed the myth of Darwin and Wallace as honest gentleman of science, my book further examines these bombshell discoveries in light of earlier discoveries of Darwin’s dishonesty in stealing the ideas, given in confidence, of his Edinburgh University tutor, Grant, and his earlier discovered notorious editing of the second edition of the ‘Voyages of the Beagle’, which fuelled the myth that he discovered natural selection on the Galapagos Islands rather than a year or two later where he really found it - inside books between 1837 and 1838. If you think Galapagos finch beaks had anything at all to do with the discovery of natural selection then you, like millions of others, have been hoodwinked by Darwin’s great science fraud.‘Nullius’ provides a vivid and authentic depiction of the times, the characters, and the cover-up that endured for over 150 years – until now.More than the clues and newly discovered independently verifiable hard facts, my new book brings to life the colorful personalities, professional rivalries, gargantuan egos, and scramble for notoriety by the people that both championed and challenged the cover-up of Darwin's science fraud at the time. This behind-the-scenes portrayal will be fascinating to anyone who loves a true-life detective story, where in this case, the victim was the truth. I think it will be very surprising if Darwin’s and Wallace’s claims to have each independently discovered the theory of natural selection will survive the only conclusions that can be reached by examination of the newly discovered data.

BOMBSHELL

1831

For over 155 years pseudo-scholarly Darwinists have misled the world over the history of the discovery of natural selection

Patrick Matthew (1831) was the first to fully explain natural selection as new species branching from a common ancestor by way of nature selecting varieties that were best circumstance suited. He even uniquely called it: 'the natural process of selection'. A term Darwin (1859) would uniquely four word shuffle into 'process of natural selection'.


Charles Darwin's success at creating a persona of respectability and great honesty is proof of the old adage that it  is not what and who you really are that matters. All that counts in society is what and who you appear to be.

The Myth of Darwin's Honesty is Bust by the Facts


Cast iron proof that Charles Darwin, in collusion with his best friend and botanical mentor Joseph Hooker, lied in the Gardener's Chronicle  when he wrote in 1860 that apparently no naturalist had read Matthew's (1831) prior-published ideas, and further lied when he wrote in the third edition of the Origin of Species (1861), and every edition thereafter, that Matthew's unique ideas had passed unnoticed until 1860.


Read the hard facts here.

Charles Darwin

Joseph Hooker

Contrary to the myth started by Darwin's deliberate self-serving lie, told in 1860 in the Gardener's Chronicle, and from the third edition of the Origin of Species onward, credulously parroted by influential Darwinists, such as Gavin de Beer, ever since Mike Sutton (2014 and 2016) uniquely discovered that Matthew's (1831) original ideas on natural selection in fact were read and discussed by naturalists and others. The book containing them was cited, and the ideas on natural selection in it, commented upon, years before Matthew brought them to Darwin's attention after the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species in 1860.


Sutton proved that Matthew's book, containing the full hypothesis of natural selection, was cited by at least 25 people before 1858. Seven were naturalists, four were known to Darwin and two to Wallace and three (Loudon, Sellby and Chambers) played major roles at the epicenter and influence of the pre-1858 work work of Darwin and Wallace on natural selection.


Therefore, in 2014, the neglected anomaly of the Darwinist myth of Darwin's and Wallace's independent discoveries of Matthew's prior published hypothesis is disconfirmed by the discovery of the New Data.


Fact-led reason suggests now that Matthewian knowledge contamination more likely than not took place.
