In the very same Journal that Darwin and Wallace used in 1858 to plagiarise Patrick Matthew's (1831) prior published theory of macro evolution by natural selection Dagg has committed an act of serious academic and professional misconduct by way of deliberate and malicious plagiarism of the research of another person. HERE. The prior published research in question is mine.
What Dagg conveniently left out of his apology for an academic article when he effectively stole my Selby discovery by failing to attribute its source to its discoverer is that the naturalist Selby was editor of the journal that published Alfred Wallace's (1855) famous Sarawak paper on evolution by natural selection (a paper read by Darwin pre-1858). Dagg also conveniently failed to mention that Selby was also was a friend of Charles Darwin's father (who was a house guest of Selby) and that Selby was a very close friend of Darwin's close friend and prolific correspondent Leonard Jenyns - and others in Charles Darwin's close knit circle). Full citations to the source of all these facts are in my books of 2014 and 2017 (both maliciously reviewed on Amazon by Dagg before he plagiarised the Selby cited Matthew discovery!) Nullius in Verba: Darwin's greatest secret.
Matthew (1831) uniquely coined the term 'natural process of selection' to name his bombshell break through and Darwin (1858), who later knowingly lied (after Matthew had informed him otherwise) by claiming no other naturalist had read Matthew's theory and that he had not read it before replicating it, uniquely four-word shuffled Matthew's term to 'process of natural selection'. It being a process, natural (as opposed to artificial - as Matthew explained first by analogy with regard to forest trees) and about selection.
Please note that Loren Eiseley (1979) discovered that Darwin had earlier replicated Matthew's exact same unique forest trees v those raised in nurseries explanatory analogy in a private essay in 1844. Matthew was a forester and arboriculturalist as well as a noted botanist, internationally famous hybridiser of apples and farmer. Darwin would later try to portray Matthew as a non entity by describing him as 'an obscure Scottish writer on forest trees'!
That fact of Darwin's use of Matthew's unique and powerful explanatory analogy for natural slection alone was enough to turn Professor Eiseley from a Darwin fan, who had earlier written an entire book praising Darwin, to an accuser that he committed science fraud by plagiary. Since then an overwhelming preponderance of further evidence has been unearthed to allow any reasonable person to conclude that it is far more likely than not, and probably beyond all reasonable doubt, that both Darwin and Wallace in their Linnean Journal papers of 1858 and Darwin (1859) in his book 'The Origin of Species' committed the worlds greatest science fraud by plagiary.
Sadly, today others are engaging in serious academic misconduct - some arguably amounting to concerted criminal harassment over several years - in an attempt to re-bury this important research data.
In addition to the Selby cited Matthew in 1842 discovery, my original research uncovered many others, including famous naturalists who were close associates of Darwin and Wallace, their influencers and their influencer's influencers who cited Matthew's (1831) book in the literature before Darwin and Wallace replicated the theory in it and then claimed independent discovery of the same theory, same name for that theory and same explanatory analogies of difference between natural and artificial selection for it, and much more besides. All these independently verifiable facts are fully referenced and discussed in depth in Nullius in Verba. All these original facts were detected using the innovative Internet Date Detection (IDD) research method (see Sutton and Griffiths 2018). That method only worked for a limited period of time. Were I to have begun my research today I would never be able to find what I found back in 2013/14. And so Dagg would not have been able to plagiarise my research.
Since it is important and in the public interest that the history of science and discoveries made in that field be informed from the original research that first unearthed them, who actually first unearthed them (On the Selby discovery alone see Sutton 2014, 2015 and this 2016 press article as just a few examples among many), I have very recently written to the academic journal editor Of the Linnean Journal informing him of Dagg's actions - supplying him with the proof that Dagg had read my prior published research containing the fact that the famous naturalist (a friend of Darwin's father and Darwin's friend and prolific correspondent Jenyns) "Selby cited Matthew in 1842" and Selby wrote on aspects of his theory therein.
Dagg - who like his correspondent, (a well known criminal cyberstalker, harasser, obsessive poison pen emailer and criminal harasser of Nottingham Trent University staff) and fellow harasser, Darwin fanatic, Julian Derry - had prior been following me all over the internet to harass me and Patrick Matthew's third great grandson Howard Minnick.
Dagg has also written two ludicrous and malicious attacks on Amazon books about my published original research findings - also prior to plagiarising parts of that research in the Linnean Journal (e.g. here - archived here [scroll down to read Dagg's malicious November 2017 review], also published before his 2018 Linnean Journal article that deliberately plagiarises my important bombshell "Selby research discovery" of 2014).
Following the publication of my research that proved (contrary to prior knowledge based on Darwin's published defence falsehoods) that many other naturalists in fact did read and cite Patrick Matthew's (1831) book, Dagg also set up a ludicrous website to write at great and obsessive length his absurd claims about my other published research on the Spinach, Popeye, Iron and Decimal Point error myth. (See Dagg 2016) and other ludicrously malicious obsessive and clearly demented issues invented inside his mind about me and my research findings.
In the interests of public protection against plagiarisers and harassers, the actions of Dagg and his friends can be studied in greater detail on the Patrick Matthew website (here).
History will not be kind to these people for their fraudulent and anti-scientific disservice to the history of science and discovery
A second instalment in the story of criminal harassment of myself & others, & malicious plagiarism by those seeking to re-bury the newly unearthed facts that Darwin & Wallace committed the world's greatest science fraud by plagiarism and subsequent lies. https://t.co/yQN4gai04q pic.twitter.com/EvyLr4j1N0— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) July 8, 2020
