Matthew's Priority
  • Read Professor Milton Wainwright's (2008) peer reviewed paper on Matthew's priority

  • Read Professor Milton Wainwright's (2011) peer reviewed paper on Matthew's priority

  • Read Dr Mike Sutton's (2014) peer reviewed paper on Matthew's priority

Under the ‘Arago Effect’ rules of the Royal Society, established in the mid 19th century, being first to publish your discovery is everything on the question of who has priority for it. This means Matthew has full priority over Darwin and Wallace for his prior published hypothesis of the ‘natural process of selection’. It is a great scandal, therefore, in the history of science that the established rules and conventions of scientific priority have not been relied upon to garner national and international recognition for Matthew’s contribution as an immortal great thinker in science.

  • Read an overview of  Professor Michael Rampino's paper on why Matthew's original version of natural selection was more veracious than Darwin's. And a (2010) press release on the paper here.

  • Access Rampino's (2011) paper.

  • Read   Sutton's (2015) blog post on why the long established rules on priority for discovery in science, enshrined in Arago Effect, mean Matthew is an immortal great thinker in science and Darwin a good finisher.

Vote on my open letter to the Royal Society requesting an official statement on the fact of Matthew's priority over Darwin and Wallace. HERE.

Solver of the problem of species

In 1831, the Scottish laird, farmer, orchard owner, grain dealer and botanist, Patrick Matthew, authored 'On Naval Timber and Arboriculture.'  Matthew's book is universally recognised as the first publication to contain the complete hypothesis of the theory of natural selection. New evidence proves that both Darwin and Wallace lied by pretending they had no prior-knowledge of it; both committed science fraud by plagiarising Matthew's discovery, his name for it, his examples of the process in nature compared to culture. They even ripped-off his unique creative perspective.

Darwin is a counterfeit orginator who told six lies to achieve primacy over Matthew.

Darwin and Wallace aped Matthew's unique discovery, its name, hypothesis and many of his key explantions.

Matthew was born on a farm called Rome. The site is now in the grounds of the Palace of Scone.

The discovery of natural selection was made at Gourdiehill, the seat of Matthew Esquire.

Golden Pippin Apples

Science swindler Darwin's unpublished notes from 1837 reveal that Matthew's subject of apple trees - was the  first  he wrote on  evolution. Extensive additional evidence proves he reverse-engineered Matthew's discovery to pretend it was his own.
