#046 – Nullius in Verba – Darwin’s Greatest Secret – The Leqgue of Nerds


Dr Mike Sutton sits down with Myles to discuss his book Nullius in Verba – Darwin’s Greatest Secret. Dr Sutton believes that in 1831 Patrick Matthew published a full account of natural selection in his book ‘On Naval Timber and Arboriculture’.

Interestingly both Darwin and Wallace claim to have not being influenced by the book and did not know of any other naturalist who had read it. Dr Sutton has uncovered that a number of naturalist had read and cited the work.

  1. Hi Myles

    Down the line from our interview – this month I’m giving a public lecture on the story of Matthew, Darwin and Wallace, It’s at the James Hutton Institute in Scotland. Some of the focus will be on the sustainability (and commercial threat to) the monumental giant redwood trees that Matthew planted in Scotland. Surprisingly, we find Darwin’s and Wallace’s correspondent Professor John Lindley involved in a most peculiar “garden plot” in this precise part of the story: http://patrickmathew.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/source-of-matthew-trees-and-john.html

    Mike Sutton, an academic in Nottingham, has fabricated and falsified evidence, to claim Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace stole the idea that evolution by natural selection can produce new species of plants and animals. His series of publications has evaded peer review, and should never have been published, but they were and now they’re feeding falsehoods into the scientific literature. Sutton has been misleading the public, including lying to Perthshire primary school children, and providing the means to defraud the Heritage Lottery Fund.

    Sutton has been shown to be incompetent, vindictive, and ignorant. He does not follow academic protocol, and uses sock puppetry to promote himself, and falsely defame others. Refusing to debate, he regularly abuses the reputations of notable scientists, living and dead, and maligns all refuters. His editors and employer university refuse to act ethically; he should be investigated for misconduct, and his papers retracted. Instead, he has been allowed to continue, while his works are being cited, also making this a matter of protecting the scientific literature. More people need to be made aware that such a loophole exists, in a system reliant on trust; authorities and publishers need to be reminded of their ethical duty in protecting the historic record.
