The Darwin, Wallace and Linnean Society Supermyth is Bust: More independently verifiable evidence of plagiarism and associated science fraud
The Biological Journal of the Linnean Society and its publisher, Oxford University Press (OUP), are knowingly acting like a fence for stolen goods in selling my stolen research findings to their innocently unknowing subscribers and other paying customers in order to mislead them into believing the underhand cherry-picked plagiarized data and desperate arguments of Dr Dagg and Dr Weal. Why on Earth would they do such a thing? Perhaps the answer is because the newly discovered facts of my research are simply too painful to bear and the New Data from my research so valuable they couldn't resist stealing it? And as a world-renowned expert (published by OUP no less) on stolen goods markets I think that criminal fence analogy is most fitting.
In their respective papers, in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society Dr Weal and Dr Dagg do the following:
- They plagiarise one of my important research findings, under every widely accepted definition of what constitutes research plagiarism.
- They cherry-pick plagiarised it and so conceal from their readership the other data in my list, which undermines the arguments they make. Cherry picking your own data to do such a thing is serious science fraud. Cherry pick plagiarising the findings of another is surely equally, or more, serious.
- Dr Dagg committed this plagiarism maliciously, which is proven by his own blog posts on both me and my finding that he has plagiarised; comments he published before and after he plagiarised it.
- Because the research finding Dr Weale and Dr Dagg plagiarised could only ever have been found with my IDD research method (Sutton 2014b, Sutton and Griffith 2018), they also, in effect, plagiarise that original research method.
Read on to learn the full story, with all the independently verifiable facts and sources, of the most ironic plagiarism in the history of science.
Dagg, J. L. (2018) Comparing the respective transmutation mechanisms of Patrick Matthew, Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace. Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, Volume 123, Issue 4, April 2018, Pages 864–878, https://doi.org/10.1093/biolinnean/bly003
Weale, M. E. (2015) Patrick Matthew's Law of Natural Selection: Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, Volume 115, Issue 4, August 2015, Pages 785–791 https://academic.oup.com/biolinnean/article/115/4/785/2530994
Perhaps the un-scientific embarrassing multiple irony of what has been done is not lost on those who have seriously plagiarised my research, and on those who have, to date, arguably, undermined scientific integrity and the publication record by refusing to acknowledge and deal with that serious repeat victimisation plagiarism. That irony being my research into the history of plagiarism of the theory of evolution by natural selection, the theory first published by the Scot Patrick Matthew, has been most seriously plagiarised by two authors, in two separate papers in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, which effectively seek to argue that Darwin and Wallace did not plagiarise Matthew’s theory in the Journal of the Proceedings of the Linnean Society in 1858, of which the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society is a direct descendant. On which note, as (Iphofen 2017) poignantly writes about my peer reviewed research on plagiarism:
'...we must guard against the temptation to corrupt practices that many see as undermining scientific integrity. These include plagiarism, failure to acknowledge prior-work, biased peer-reviewing, and, in effect, poorly constructed desk or secondary research. Of course, there is nothing new in such discreditable activities. Sutton (2014) offers evidence that Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace clearly plagiarised the earlier ideas of Patrick Matthew without sufficient acknowledgment and Darwin then used his elite connections to ensure he would not be scooped by Wallace.' [My emphasis].
Detailed Repeat Victim Impact and Context Statement Regarding the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society Refusing to Admit to or Address Repeat Victimization Plagiarism of my Prior-Published Original Research
(Dr Mike Sutton, August 2020)
Please Note: Full references to all publications cited are included at the end of this repeat victim statement.
The plagiarism and cherry picking plagiarism fraud comprises Dr Weale and Dr Dagg in their separate papers doing the following in each paper:
- Using one important high-quality finding from my prior published research (Sutton 2014, 2014a, 2015. 2017b) without citation to that research.
- By default, plagiarising the unique Big Data mining method (Sutton 2014b, Sutton and Griffiths 2018) used to make the finding, because the finding could not have been made without that method.
- Cherry-picking plagiarism of that one important finding from my research to effectively mislead readers by not mentioning other findings in that same prior-published research. Those other findings independently, and as a collective weight of evidence, can be understood to disconfirm the arguments the plagiarisers make using the one finding they plagiarised.
- The fact that only one of my high quality research findings has been plagiarised cannot ethically, rationally, or reasonably – in accordance with all guidance, rules and regulations on research plagiarism – be used as a guilt neutralisation excuse by the plagiarisers, Editor or OUP. This is a most important point, that I cannot emphasize enough, because the fact that only one of my findings has been plagiarised means three things (a) as in point 3 above, readers have been misled by deliberate cherry picking from my research findings, (b) high quality (not quantity) research findings plagiarism is the serious issue here (c) not dealing appropriately with this example of serious repeat plagiarism of my research will effectively give the authors and others a perceived licence to do the same with that and many more future illicit “use of one single research finding plagiarism” from my research and from the research of others in future OUP publications and elsewhere.
- The fact the same finding first plagiarised by Dr Weale has been repeat plagiarised by Dr Dagg, in the very same journal, is proof of the high value of that finding and also strongly suggests that unless this plagiarism is dealt with appropriately, repeat victimisation by plagiarism will multiply even further by the same or by other authors in the same journal and or in other publications.
- The plagiarism is deliberate, because both authors are proven to have prior read and prior-published their knowledge of my research and that finding in it. What they each publish on their own blog sites about my research before they plagiarised it is independently verifiable evidence of their prior knowledge of that finding. Both Dr Weale and Dr Dagg clearly took that finding directly from my original prior-published research with no reference to the research they took it from. That is serious research plagiarism under any definition.
- It is my considered belief that in plagiarising my research in the way they have, given the weight of the independently verifiable evidence presented in this victim statement, both Dr Weale and Dr Dagg have committed serious academic science fraud by deliberate cherry-picking plagiarism of my research.
- In the case of Dr Dagg, what the has written in his reviews of my books and his own blog posts about me and my research, published before he plagiarised my research, and after, confirm his plagiarism is malicious.
The research that has been plagiarised was conducted in 2013-2014, when I was employed as Reader in Criminology at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). NTU published a press brief on the research (see Nottingham Trent University 2014).
The plagiarised research is by no means of minor significance. My research findings have been reported in many newspapers and other publications, including national newspapers: The Daily Telegraph (2014) and the Daily Mail [Scotland Edition] (Caven 2014) and The Scotsman (newsroom 2016).
The ‘Selby cited Matthew in 1842’ original finding from my research is not yet common knowledge. Yet that exact research finding has been cherry-picked plagiarised from my larger list of those newly discovered, in my research, to have cited Matthew (1831). To be clear, my research finding has been plagiarised. It has been repeatedly plagiarised, because it has been published in two different articles in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society. My Selby finding was taken from a larger list of my research findings, of writers I newly discovered cited Patrick Matthew’s (1831) book pre-1858, without credit to the source of my research that originally uncovered and first published it. In fact, it was used with no credit to me whatsoever. That is serious intellectual property theft of my research finding and the method used to make the finding.
Further detailed background information
In July 2020, I provided the full details of the plagiarism of my research, by Dr Weale and Dr Dagg, to the Chief Editor of the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society John Allen. The evidence I sent shows my research was knowingly plagiarised. I also sent the original publication details of my research, thus proving its provenance and that is has, therefore been plagiarised.
John Allen replied to me by claiming that use of this key and important original research finding without referencing the prior-published research that the plagiarist took it from is not research plagiarism. His is response in this regard is not only highly inappropriate but also totally unacceptable.
Moreover, I think John Allen’s stated belief is surely, patently, and profoundly wrong and out of line with all accepted, definitions of what amounts to research plagiarism, as opposed to merely copying text.
The length and occasional repetition in this victim statement will hopefully ensure that those now also in receipt of the same independently verifiable evidence provided herein may be left in no reasonable doubt that serious repeat research plagiarism has occurred and will understand its serious nature, consequences, impact on me as the victim and the need to act accordingly with integrity before the same or other authors further plagiarise my research and further subvert the historic publication record.
I have never felt the need to complain officially about plagiarism of my research before and I am shocked by the response I have received. To date, I am extremely disappointed with the behaviour of The Editor of the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.
Firstly, the research plagiarised is the relatively newly uncovered fact, uncovered by my research, (e.g. Sutton 2014, 2014a, 2015, 2017b) that the naturalist Selby (1842) cited the recognised member of the Scottish Enlightenment, botanist, agriculturalist, famous fruit hybridiser and forester, Patrick Matthew (1831) in 1842. Secondly, this plagiarism includes plagiarising the newly unearthed title and full reference for the book in which, my research discovered, Selby (1842) cited Matthew (1831). Thirdly, by default, the plagiarism includes plagiarising my unique research method (see Sutton 2014b and particularly Sutton and Griffiths 2018 for full details of the method) used to find this important new data in the historic publication record in the field of the history of scientific discovery. Fourthly, by cherry-pick plagiarising just one finding from my research, Dr Weale and Dr Dagg have engaged in misleading science fraud by concealing the other evidence in my research that can be used to dis-confirm the argument they make in their papers.
To emphasise by repeating the above point, plagiarism of my ‘Selby cited Matthew in 1842’ original research finding also seriously plagiarises the unique research method I developed and employed to find it. Namely, the Internet Date Detection, Big Data, research method (see Sutton 2014b and Sutton and Griffiths 2018 to see our detailed peer reviewed article on the method). Unless you were to know in advance that Selby’s book cited Matthew’s book, which is something no known writer has ever mentioned before, and so search on Selby or the title of his book, no other method tried before or since was able to detect the fact it did. Therefore, to understand and appreciate the seriousness of the repeat plagiarism of my research, it is imperative to understand that without use of the IDD research method the ‘Selby cited Matthew (1832) in 1842’ finding, could not, and arguably never would have been found by future researchers in this field.
Pertinent contextual historical facts of the area of research: Understanding the value of the finding that has been repeat plagiarised:
What is plagiarism, particularly research findings plagiarism?
The University of Oxford (2020) provides us with arguably the world’s most famous definition of what constitutes plagiarism (my emphasis):
"Plagiarism is presenting someone else's work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. All published and unpublished material, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic form, is covered under this definition."
The article by Dr Weale and the article by Dr Dagg each use my prior published Selby data without any acknowledgement whatsoever to where they found it. So how is that not plagiarism?
Where research findings are used without reference to where they originated then that is defined as citation plagiarism, which is a sub-type of research plagiarism. That is what Dr Weale and Dr Dagg did in their respective articles in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.
Citation plagiarism may occur through careless attitudes towards citation (Saunders 2010) or it may occur through an act of what Allen (2007) calls ‘blatant plagiarism’, which is done with an aim to steal the research finding in order to deceive others by taking credit for it. However, it seems reasonable to assume that in other cases citation plagiarism may be motivated or by a sole or perhaps additional wish not to reference the original source of the research finding due to professional embarrassment, malice, jealousy or some other pseudo-scholarly ulterior motive. In that case the motivation may be to have the finding wrongly perceived as something widely known and not attributable to anyone. In some cases, perhaps citation plagiarism is motivated by the plagiariser’s perceptions of academic discipline rivalry that may involve trying to double-guess readership, peer review and editorial arrogance, personal dislike of the victim, their research findings, their interpretation of those findings and conclusions, or individual and disciplinary jealously regarding the discovery of the data they decided to plagiarise.
Plagiarising a research finding can also constitute ‘research method plagiarism’ if the method used to make that finding is original, because if only that original method could make the finding the plagiarist will also, by default, most certainly plagiarise the method used to find it. As explained above, that is the case in the plagiarism of my Selby cited Matthew pre-1858 finding. By plagiarising that research finding, both Dr Weale and Dr Dagg have by default plagiarised the unique Big Data Internet Date Detection research method (Sutton and Griffiths 2018) used to find it. Independent expert peer reviewers of that peer reviewed article I wrote with Professor Griffith’s agreed the unique IDD method is a new Big Data research method that has been used in my research to make significant research findings of this kind.
'The term plagiarism derives from the Latin word “plagiarius,” meaning “kidnapper” or “abductor.” Although plagiarism is difficult to define in few words, it can be viewed as the stealing of another person's ideas, methods, results, or words without giving proper attribution…. The ORI defines plagiarism as being “theft or misappropriation of intellectual property and the substantial unattributed textual copying of another's work.”… The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), UK, has defined plagiarism as “the unreferenced use of others published and unpublished ideas.” (Juyal, D., Thawani, V., & Thaledi, S. 2015). (My emphasis).
The fact Dr Weale’s and Dr Dagg’s plagiarism of my research is subtle does not make it any less serious. Arguably it makes it more serious because it is so deceptive. This is something that the Editor of the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society seems to know or care nothing about. As Dougherty (2020. p.1) explains:
“I have requested retractions of 125 published articles in humanities fields in recent years. A large portion of these articles exhibited very subtle forms of plagiarism. … When undetected plagiarising articles produce widespread inefficiencies in the wider system of knowledge production, not only are researchers denied credit for their discoveries, but plagiarizing articles take up space in journals that should have been reserved for articles for authentic researchers.”
Quality not quantity
It is most important to repeat another point already made, in order to emphasise the fact, that the plagiarism of my research by Dr Weale and Dr Dagg is not an issue of a quantity being plagiarised, it is about the quality of what has been plagiarised. It is also about the insidious subtlety in which that was deliberately done and the malice behind it.
The Selby data, uncovered by my research, that has been plagiarised is not only relatively new, it is also highly significant and of extremely high quality in the specific field of research into the history of scientific discovery and scientific plagiarism of breakthroughs in knowledge and prior-published research findings of others. On the issue of whether Darwin and Wallace plagiarised Matthew, it is highly significant, important and new.
As explained above, the Selby cited Matthew in 1842 discovery provides clear evidence of the existence of a previously totally unknown route for potential ‘Matthew to Darwin and Wallace’ knowledge contamination (Sutton 2015) of both Darwin and Wallace and their subsequent publications. Such potential knowledge transmission, in whole or part, could have occurred directly or in some way via others known to Selby, Darwin and Wallace. Others including but not limited to Darwin’s father (who was Selby’s friend) or Darwin’s and Selby’s mutual friend Jenyns.
“…whether or not one article plagiarises another may turn on a judgement of the originality of the interpretation of scientific experiment or a data set.” (Saunders, 2010). (My emphasis)
"...plagiarism (in principle) can consist in as little as one word, while there are many standard sentences describing research methods that will not be plagiarism even if, in fact, copied from someone else. This is to say that the unmarked reuse of some very short passages might be plagiarism, even though the reuse of other equally short passages would not. The conclusion to draw from this is that plagiarism has to do with quality rather than quantity – or, more precisely, with what is unique rather than so common that it cannot be attributed to anyone." (Helgesson and Eriksson (2015). (My emphasis).
The verifiable fact the unique Selby data from my research has been twice plagiarised in the Biological Journal of the Linnean society is clear proof of the high quality and importance of the research that has been plagiarised. Surely it was plagiarised twice precisely because it is such a valuable newly discovered fact that Selby read and cited Matthew’s book before Darwin or Wallace penned a word on the topic of evolution by natural selection. What other reason could there be?
The fact the unique Selby Data has been plagiarised a second time in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society is proof that the scientific record in the history of science has been corrupted with one incident of plagiarism leading to another and needs, therefore, to be rectified before further incidents occur to corrupt the publication record in the history of scientific discovery and research into priority and plagiarism.
Engaging in the subterfuge of cherry picking one author from my prior published original research findings (Sutton 2014, 2017b), of who I newly discovered did cite Matthew (1831) pre 1858, to effectively make deceptive fact concealment arguments when examining the evidence for routes of potential knowledge contamination (transmission) from Matthew’s (1831) book to the later published works of Darwin, Wallace and others is misleading the scientific community.
Using my Selby research finding without citation to the research and method that uncovered it, in order to make the argument, as Dr Weale and Dr Dagg do, that no naturalist understood Matthew’s theory, is, in my opinion, engaging in science fraud not only by plagiary but highly deliberate deceptive cherry picking. Because, by way of just one relevant example among many others I found in my research, that I could use here, I also originally unearthed the fact that Jameson (1853) cited Matthew’s 1831 book and observations in it. Jameson was the nephew of Darwin’s Edinburgh Professor, employee of the East India Company and regular pre-1858 correspondent of William Hooker (father of Darwin’s best friend and botanical mentor Joseph Hooker). William Hooker, also a friend of Darwin, was sponsor, mentor, customer for his ‘collected’ wildlife and correspondent of Wallace. All pre-1858.
Jameson (1853) cited Matthew and wrote about one area of Matthew’s book on how some species of tree may sometimes fare better when transplanted outside their native areas. Jameson reveals that he fully understood the importance of Matthew’s observation for economic botany. The devout Christian gentleman scientist Selby, on the other hand, was writing in 1842, at a time when such an idea was deemed far more unacceptably heretical to Christians who believed their God designed nature and put everything where it was most ideally and best suited to serve the interests of humans above all else. Most importantly, that idea, and other heretical for Christians ideas, in Matthew’s book, was also mentioned in a major book review of 1831 in the United Services Journal, which instructed readers to not even to dare think about such ideas. And Jameson is just one example of the newly discovered to have cited Matthew (1831) authors in my research findings that Dr Weal’s and Dr Dagg’s cherry picking research findings plagiarism effectively, and misleadingly, conceal by failing to cite the source of the Selby cited Matthew pre-1858 discovery.
To emphasise the point just made, plagiarising from my list of those newly discovered by the IDD method to have cited Matthew (1831) pre-1858, (As Dr Weale and Dr Dagg have done) not only plagiarises the IDD method as well as my data, it also most seriously, effectively fraudulently in my opinion, hides not only the other findings in my research but also hides the power of that method by failing to acknowledge just how many authors (including naturalists) in fact did read Matthew’s bombshell theory, how many were linked to Darwin and Wallace, and in what way.
The image above is from Sutton (2014) and shows Selby in the list of 25 people newly discovered in my research to have cited Matthew’s (1831) book before 1858
Evidence of prior knowledge and malicious intent regarding plagiarism of my research.
In light alone of the facts presented above, my research has been plagiarised in two articles in the Biological Journal Linnean Society, as has the unique research method used. But this plagiarism is worse. Firstly, it has taken place at a relatively very early stage following the publication of my research findings. That greatly increases the chances that my research findings will be misattributed to either Dr Weale, Dr Dagg or both. Worse still is the independently verifiable evidence that Dr Dagg plagiarised my research maliciously. That evidence now follows:
Thank you for carefully reading and understanding the importance and important consequences of the above independently verifiable evidence.
I put the work in for many hours each day, often seven days a week, for over two years and know the uniqueness and value of my research results and how extremely time-consuming and difficult that research was to conduct, as do those who plagiarised it, which is why they did so, and why it has been done twice.
Research in the field of criminology reveals that the best-known prediction of victimization is victimization (e.g. Farrell and Pease 2001) and that is confirmed in this case. Therefore, if not dealt with properly, even more plagiarism of my research will almost certainly follow.

March 2020 USA Health Expert Dr Fauci spouts the palpable lethal idiotic nonsense that people should not wear facemasks in a COVID pandemic. It was plainly stupid advice to many people hearing and reading it at the time, including myself and my family and friends. Like other so called experts Fauci would later change his mind completely. Here he is before he did so, making stupid assumptions that everyone wearing a mask is stupid and that by doing so they will in some way, unexplained, create a shortage of masks for others who he weirdly thinks need them more.
. During the 2020 Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic, scientific and medical advisers to the UK Government took the myth that face masks of any kind do not provide the wearer, if a member of the general public in a public/semi-public place, with any useful protection against a virus and added to it a new myth that they would be more likely to become infected and to infect others through the act of wearing a mask in public and semi public places. In this blog post you will see the video and newspaper, journal and peer reviewed journal article evidence for the creation, dissemination and busting of the lethal Masks Supermyth.

. The timeline of UK government scientific adviser - mere unevidenced - beliefs about public use of face masks/coverings outside the home during a pandemic and the actual evidence followed by the turnaround on 11th May 2020.
Many thousands of lives have been lost. If masks work today to stop the spread of Covid19 then they also worked months ago!
.On & BEFORE 12 March (2 months ago!) @piersmorgan some of us with at least 1/2 a brain knew masks should have been compulsory in the UK - never mind recommended - as they finally are. And mass congregations banned earlier. But not this so-called "expert" https://t.co/toOhkBJubW https://t.co/GZwRZJQjFR— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) May 19, 2020
Please follow the video and newspaper timeline.
March 4th 2020, Chief Medical Officer, and top "expert" government adviser on the Covid19 pandemic, Chris Whitty, says the general public should not wear masks (Here) .
Maybe that is because Whitty oddly thinks face mask wearing will somehow uniquely turn us into idiots who won't also wash our hands or properly keep the correct social distance anymore?
Whitty is on record on 4th March saying that masks will not provide protection against the virus, but does not explain why that should be his thinking given that the virus is spread by coughed or sneezed water droplets. Logic suggests masks will reduce the volume and trajectory of infected droplets. Given that many spreaders and super spreaders are asymptomatic. Compulsory masks for all would prevent them spreading the virus. So what on Earth is Whitty talking about?
A supermyth is a myth that is compounded by further myths about that myth (see the supermyths website)
So here we see the beginning of the supermyth that masks don't work against Covid-19 - as others (on film below) such as Whitty's deputy, Jenny Harries, add to the masks don't work myth with another myth (to compound the original myth) that the general UK public wearing masks in public places start acting stupidly with them, doing things like wiping infected masks over surfaces. And further myths added by scientific advisers that mask wearers think masks are to sole solution to the pandemic.
11th March 2020 The Deputy Chief Medical Officer telling Boris and the rest of us the barking mad nonsense the public would wipe infected face masks over surfaces - but its OK for us all to attend mass public events in this pandemic! (Ref: https://twitter.com/i/status/1237760976482598913)

And, based on scientific experiment - here is another good article
By contrast, here is one beloved by anti-maskers based on people in a lab experiment only wearing a medical grade mask or a flimsy cotton mask coughing into a petri dish from a couple of inches away. Yet the authors of the article admit they did not measure either the volume or trajectory of infected water droplets by mask wearers versus non mask wearers. Moreover, where the hell do members of the general public obtain these flimsy disposable medical grade masks? And who thinks flimsy cotton masks are the number 1. choice of the public? For all they know a scarf wrapped around the face, a way thicker DIY anti dust mask or ski mask, anti pollution mask, works better. Anyway, it's well worth a read.

CONCLUSION: Videos and pictures speak thousands of words
If masks work on 11th May to reduce the spread of Covid19 and reduce the dreadful death toll then they worked 2 months ago when the three so called "experts" below were creating and spreading the deadly Mask Supermyth!
The so-called "experts" advising the UK Government made up a myth by telling them and the public a made-up story that if they wore masks they would only be doing so in the erroneous belief that a mask on the face renders the wearer immune from infection and so they would stop hand washing and social distancing.
The correct message should have been that because Covid19 is often spread by asymptomatic people breathing out, coughing and sneezing infected droplets in public and semi-public places that EVERYONE should wear a mask. Because: "when we all wear a mask we protect ourselves by the simultaneous act of protecting everyone else."
The only reason masks are not compulsory today in the UK (12th May 2020) during the pandemic could well be because the government of the UK would rather thousands more now die than admit they got the science, logic and commonsense on masks for the public wrong from the very start, and for months they callously refused to admit it, allowing thousands more unnecessary deaths and many more infections to occur.

No apology or explanation for U-Turn. Unprecidented coward & lethal plonker! https://t.co/2FDi6Jg2F4— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) June 23, 2020
Whitty now 23 June 2020 recommends masks in shops! No admission that he earlier said masks are useless! from Mike Robert Sutton on Vimeo.
.Patrick #Vallance666 is UK man who gloats on Twitter as being the "Science Chief" said NOTHING, NOTHING! when #BonkersBoris, Harries, Van-Tam & Whitty started & spread the lethal #MasksSupermyth.

I hate petitions but in view of SAGE's position I'd encourage you to sign. As we said 3m ago, arguing about the strength of evidence is angels on the head of a pin. It's time to apply the precautionary principle. I'll re-post my summary of evidence below.https://t.co/niY5az5EQA— Trisha Greenhalgh 😷 #BlackLivesMatter (@trishgreenhalgh) June 24, 2020

.On #MasksSupermyth. #BonkersBoris's idiotically lethal response to mandatory face-masks petition not washing with politicians in parliament. See Tory #Covid19 Death Squad's initial response & the justifiable reply that it's not a sensible reply.

.Dr. Fauci admits Public Health officials misled the public on masks!!— Trevor Scott (@TrevorS53362313) July 2, 2020
Will Dr. Harries do the same??@Criminotweet @sallywilts @jay9bourne @Ninascott_ https://t.co/ax2ayA4tXZ
.And then theres this.. this does not bode well for Harries or Whitty who advised us NOT to wear them.— Trevor Scott (@TrevorS53362313) July 6, 2020
Mask wearing could have prevented lost lives and protected the economy... https://t.co/tz8caOOJtR
.So the World Health Organisation (WHO) hid the evidence that we should all wear masks to save lives during the #Covid19 pandemic. Why? Because they thought people would "panic". WTF? Tens of thousands died due to this utter, arrogant, unworldly, stupidity! https://t.co/Qxyy73jOEi— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) July 7, 2020

No explanation for the U Turn. @BorisJohnson
No apologies for the lives lost through super spreading the lethal Masks Supermyth!

Wales Govt. finally realises (but does not admit) it was credulously suckered by the ludicrous yet lethal #MasksSupermyth and makes 3-layer masks compulsory on public transport.

If compulsory face masks, in public/semi public places, work to save lives this month then they would have saved lives many months ago!

Does the self named "Naked Scientist" from #CambridgeUniversity now have an anti-covid19 mask on his logo?
Because he has not apologised for spreading the mass killer #maskssupermyth anti-mask message!

He has NEVER apologised for promoting Welsh anti-mask behaviour: "First Minister Mark Drakeford said was only a "marginal public health case" for face masks to stop Covid-19." https://t.co/4VEHAtl6wy Now he has locked the entre country indoors for 17 days.

So academics who are anti-maskers, stop lethal fuelling anti-mask sentiment in a pandemic spread by, coughed, sneezed & otherwise exhaled water droplets. Or Twitter will delete your fake #MasksSupermyth news!— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) October 23, 2020
Try explaining that to your university bosses! https://t.co/Airx8Efqm9
On 25th October 2020, the eminent scientist Dr Fauci tells the BBC that facemasks worn by members of the public save lives in the Covid19 pandemic.
I think lethal anti-mask sentiments spread by UK scientists, politicians and academics needs to be seriously debated - to save lives, or not as the case may be. I have looked at the evidence and it has been clear to me since March 2020 that masks surely do play a major role in reducing the incidence spread of Covid19.
Scientists in Brazil have linked resistance to Covid-19 safety measures, such as wearing a mask, with traits of Anti-Social Personality Disorder.https://t.co/ZG2MeVEoyT— Melvin Carvalho (@melvincarvalho) October 27, 2020
President Elect of the USA, Joe Biden, tells Americans on 9th Nov 2020 that the most effective thing they can do to save tens of thousands of lives in the Covid19 pandemic is to "wear a mask" (here). How far is that from Trump's insane mockery of mask wearers and what Biden calls Trump's "emotional and physical clone" Boris Johnson's monster raving loony advice not to wear one because they spread covid19?.
If he took responsibility he could save tens of thousands of lives being lost because people won't wear masks because of his previously broadcast misinformation on masks: https://t.co/I5zw30SAaD https://t.co/4wbnQLYcJd— Dr Mike Sutton (@Dysology) January 2, 2021
These people aren't leaders. They're credulous followers. They spread the idiotic #MasksSupermyth, started by idiots, that masks spread COVID19 & do not reduce its spread. It is dishonest not to admit your mistakes. The normalcy of such dishonesty fuels conspiracy theories. pic.twitter.com/IHCg9ZbxKo— Dr Mike Sutton (@Dysology) December 30, 2020
I and my family all wore an industrial anti-dust mask covered with an anti-pollution mask from the very start of the COVID19 pandemic. At the time I began this blog post on the Masks Supermyth in May 2020, governments were telling people in the West not to wear masks because they would be depriving medical and nursing staff of personal protective equipment (PPE) we all knew that was absolute claptrap. Moreover, when some scientists were making up stories about masks being ineffective at protecting the wearer and others around them from exhaled virus particles we know that was rubbish because masks would not be recommended to medical staff - and fears of such PPE shortages would not occur - if that was true.
If there is one lesson to be had here it is that scientists, politicians and the wider public should always abide by the scientific principle of nullius in verba (incidentally, that is the title of my book on the worlds greatest science fraud by plagiarism).. In other words, do not simply take the word of anyone that anything is true. Check out the independently verifiable facts for yourself. Relatedly, never blindly and credulously follow the zombie horde by accepting any argument on the simple basis that it comes from "authority."
In the case of my book, Nullius in Verba: Darwin's Greatest Secret, the scientific community and the wider public have been hoodwinked for over 150 years by Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace who both plagiarised the entire theory of evolution by natural selection, its name and explanatory analogies and examples, from the Scot Patrick Matthew who published it in its entirety 27 years before them and - contrary to science mythology started by Darwin's serial lies on the matter - his 1831 book containing the theory was read and cited by Darwin' and Wallace's friends, correspondents, influencers and their influencer's influencers and even by the editor of Wallace's Sarawak paper on the topic before they penned a word on the topic in their private notebooks. Yet despite the newly unearthed independently verifiable evidence in my book and expert peer reviewed papers on the topic (e.g. here) most of the scientific community and general public swallow the Darwin supermyth on the basis that they are blindly obeying authority on the matter. Do you dear reader?

Are you an independent rational, objective person able to weigh independently verifiable facts? Or are you just one of the zombie horde stumbling blindly, obeying authority because certainty is more comforting than disturbing new disconfirming evidence? https://t.co/xBGGof5eY7— BentSociety @The Veracity Institute (@OnNavalTimber) December 30, 2020
#BonkersBoris broadcast this lethal advice on 11th March 2020. And Boris Johnson and Dr Harries have NEVER apologised for the deaths they caused by it. Because if masks do save lives, then telling people masks kill people must - logically - kill people. https://t.co/0TZE6m8A1G https://t.co/IFiXzy5j5X— Dr Mike Sutton (@Dysology) January 3, 2021
Nutty Professor Chris #Fckwhitty - who has still not apologised for his central role in the lethal raving bonkers #MasksSupermyth (that masks do not work to reduce spread of COVID19 and even spread it) announces 1,041 deaths from COVID19 in past 24 hours: https://t.co/ogwLIT08oX— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) January 6, 2021
