And just as religious nuts are bonkers, here we see standard #Darwinite Darwin worship footwasher cult uncomfortable disconfirming newly unearthed independently verifiable fact denial propaganda.

Years before his own great science fraud (Sutton 2016), fellow of the Royal Society, Charles Darwin's (FRS) grandfather (Erasmus Darwin FRS) almost got away with the first recorded case of pharmacological plagiarism by claiming that Withering's discovery of digitalis as a cure for dropsy was that of his own deceased son. Erasmus sought to build up his own fame by slyly establishing that it was a Darwin family discovery (see here). Full details can be read here.
One has to wonder what hope Darwin The Plagiarist had of not being so named. His grandfather Erasmus was twice caught out in serious acts of plagiarism, as was his geological mentor Charles Lyell.

This was not Erasmus Darwin's only famous act of plagiary. He also plagiarized verses from the poet Anna Seaward for his most famous poem The Botanic Garden. Here,
Not only that by Darwin's geological mentor Charles Lyell (who along with Joseph Hooker orchestrated the Darwin and Wallace Linnean Debacle, where each plagiarized Patrick Matthew's theory) was also an arch plagiarist. Get the details of Lyell's plagiarism from the tweet below.
Does the book mention fact that on many occasions others were outraged Lyell stole their ideas and research and passed it off as his own? Lyell was a plagiarist - just like his protege known today as "Darwin the Plagiarist".— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) November 13, 2019

My further research after being tipped off by Ian Hardie found the source of what we might call the "striking error" that others have copied without due citation to him is W. T. Calman (1912, pp. 451- 457) who was shown the three letters on or before 1912 by Matthew's daughter Euphemia. Claman (1912 p. 451) wrote that the letters had never before been published. Matthew and Darwin scholars should note that the above letter is one of the three later originally found by Ian Hardie and Min Hunter at the home of John Matthew after his death. They set up the Patrick Matthew Trust, which employed Jim Dempster to research and write on this topic.
Using a secondary transcribed source such as Calman's published transcription of 1912 yet citing the material as though it is the primary source whist ignorantly replicating a transcription error unique to the secondary source is one of the most simple forms of poor scholarship counting as academic misconduct by plagiarism. This mistranscription and wrong attribution issue on the Darwin Correspondence website and elsewhere in the literature on Darwin and Matthew is just one more ironic example of the many issues of dreadful scholarship plagiarism that that run through the so called "Darwin industry" like hidden woodworm in an antique.
Note: For the historical record, I have a copy of van Wyhe's Sutton's research on Darwin and Matthew is a "conspiracy theory' email that he sent to a Scottish journalist. But for reasons of his copyright, I cannot legally publish it.
"What a tangled web they weave" as Darwin Correspondence Project Scholars caught out citing what they never knew was erroneous text transcribed in secondary sources when they cited it as though they got it from the primary source they actually never read! https://t.co/fxvvJtiHy2— Dr Mike Sutton (@Dysology) November 10, 2019

#Science #NEWS First ever photographic images of 3 letters Charles Darwin sent to Patrick Matthew, the true originator of the theory of evolution by natural selection, are published https://t.co/zfIDKWmkhq— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) November 9, 2019
Cambridge University really wanted these letters. But #Scotland said NO!
Problem with Darwin worshipers is they think anyone writing about his science fraud by plagiarism & serial lies about Patrick Matthew (who discovered evolution by natural selection) is Christian.

Privately educated establishment darling toffs such as Boris Johnson have a long history of serial lying.— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) November 4, 2019
Did you know it is newly discovered that Charles #Darwin was also a plagiarist & serial liar?

People are lazy. That's why Boris Johnson is Prime Minister and leading in the election opinion polls. That and the fact Corbyn is a disingenuous #Trotpillock— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) November 3, 2019

Maybe it's time the fawning #HouseJocks run by the English "Establishment" realize the independently verifiable truth about the true Scot Patrick Matthew and the serial lying glory thieving sly plagiarist Charles Darwin?— Dr Mike Sutton (@Dysology) November 1, 2019
