St Charles Darwin, Never Rejected God in the Origin of Species, as did the first-to-be-first heretical Originator Patrick Matthew in 1831
We believe in Darwin the one true second-to-be-first-Originator.
We believe his true claim to have independently discovered the theory of natural selection.
We reject the Devil-in-the-detail-dis-confirming evidence and all its works.
Darwin's Claim and Subsequent Promise to all Darwinists:
‘I think that no one will feel surprised that neither I, nor apparently any other naturalist, had heard of Mr. Matthew's views, considering how briefly they are given, and that they appeared in the appendix to a work on Naval Timber and Arboriculture.’ Charles Darwin (1860)
If you believe Darwin's words with the credulity of a true-believer and plagiarist worshiper, then - but only then - may you enter the Darwinist kingdom of heretic-dis-confirmed rhetoric, wherein the second shall be first and the first shall be buried in oblivion.

A Reading from the King James Bible
From the 25th chapter of the book of Matthew, verse 29, in the King James Version of the Christian Holy Bible:
"For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath."
A Sermon from the Sprout
First Sermon from the Sprout
Certifiable Darwinist Evidence of Science-Miracles (see 'Nullius in Verba: Darwin's Greatest Secret' for the independently verifiable evidence of these miracles and a great many more besides.)
(1) The First Miracle of the Shuffling: With zero prior knowledge of Matthew's (1831) prior-published discovery, Darwin (1859) miraculously four-word shuffled Matthew's unique name for his discovery from the original 'natural process of selection' into to his own unique name for the same discovery - 'process of natural selection'. Darwin then used the merely coincidentally four-word-shuffled phrase nine times in the Origin of Species, where 42 times he referred to the Matthew's prior-discovery as "my theory".
(2) The Second Miracle of the Shuffling and the First Miracle of Mere Coincidental Epicentral Influence and Facilitation: Darwin's acquaintance and correspondent - the geologist and publisher Robert Chambers - who anonymously authored the heretical and best selling Vestiges of Creation (Chambers 1844), said to have put 'evolution in the air' in the mid 19th century (Millhauser 1959), actually cited Matthew's (1831) book 'On Naval Timber and Arboriculture' in 1832. That was a mere coincidence. In 1840, once again merely co-incidentally, Chambers cited Matthew's (1839) second book - Emigration Fields. Darwin (1861) admitted the great influence Chambers had on preparing the public to accept the theory of natural selection. Alfred Wallace said it was a great influence on his ambitions to solve the problem of species. In his book review (Chambers 1859) of Darwin's Origin, Chambers - who had an almost photographic memory (Macfarlane) - miraculously, once again merely-coincidentally, was the first person to back-shuffle Darwin's four-word-shuffle into Matthew's original 'natural process of selection'. It was Chambers who later had a mere chance meeting with Darwin's Bulldog - Huxley - in which he successfully berated Huxley to defend Darwin's Origin of Species in the famous 1860 British Association for the Advancement of Science Oxford debate with Bishop Wilberforce. Naturally, just as was his early knowledge of Matthew's book, Chambers' meeting with Huxley was just another mere coincidence. That Darwin and Chambers were each respectively acquainted in person and as correspondents and that each also frequented dinner parties attended by Thomas Carlyle is, of course, more of the same mere coincidence. That Matthew (1831) mercilessly mocked Chambers' life changing mentor and benefactor Sir Walter Scot and that Chambers' Vestiges clearly favored the development hypothesis - ignoring Matthew's more complex and veracious 'natural process of selection' hypotheses - is as merely coincidental as is the fact he corresponded about his inherited hexadactyl trait (see) with Darwin's associate and rival Richard Owen.
(3) The Third Miracle of the Mere Coincidental Epicentral Influence and Facilitation: In 1832, the botanist and polymath John Claudius Loudon reviewed Matthew's (1831) book and remarked that he had something original to say on 'the origin of species' no less! Again merely miraculously coincidentally, Loudon edited and published Blyth's highly influential papers of 1835 and 1837 on species variety and organic evolution. In the third edition of the Origin of Species Darwin (1861) fully admitted that Blyth was his most helpful and most prolific informant on the subject of species as it related to organic evolution. That Loudon was a good friend of John Lindley, who secretly co-authored Loudon's (1825) Encyclopedia of Agriculture and whose own book of 1831 was co-incidentally reviewed directly above Matthew's by Loudon in 1832, and that Lindley was a close friend of the botanist William Hooker (a friend of Darwin and father of Darwin's best friend and botanist Joseph Hooker) is merely co-incidental. That Matthew was a famous Scottish representative of the Chartist movement and Lindley drilled a militia of gardener's to control the potentially riotous Chartists is also a mere coincidence, as is the fact that Lindley went on to write two publications on the theme of naval timber - but never cited Matthew.That both Loudon and Lindley were among a group of only four botanists who were fascinated with the hypothesis of plant metamorphosis is just another mere coincidence.
(4) The Fourth Miracle of the Mere Coincidental Epicentral Influence and Facilitation: The naturalist Prideaux John Selby, who cited Matthew’s book many times in his own book of 1842 and mentioned Matthew's natural selection writing on 'best circumstance suitability' and 'powers of occupancy' of trees, went on, merely coincidentally, to be the Chief Editor and publisher of Wallace's famous Sarawak paper of 1855. It is simply another amazing coincidence that Darwin read Wallace's Sarawak paper in 1855 and his subsequent Ternate paper in 1858. That Darwin's father and many of Darwin's best friends were house guests and great friends of Selby, and that Darwin and Selby sat on several important scientific committees at the same time is all merely an unconnected series of scientifically unexplainable miraculous mere coincidence.
(5) The First of the Six Miracles of the Lies that Turned into Truth: In 1860, in Matthew's first (1860) published letter in the Gardener's Chronicle on the topic of Darwin's replication of his prior-published discovery of natural selection, Matthew informed Darwin that the botanist Loudon had read and published a review of his 1831 book as long ago as 1832 and that Loudon had at that time published his remarks about the unique ideas on the origin of species contained therein. In his second letter of 1860 in The Chronicle, Matthew informed Darwin of another naturalist (unnamed) who read his ideas but feared to teach them for fear of pillory punishment. He informed him also that Perth public library (library of the "Fair City") had banned its book because of the original, heretical, ideas on natural selection in it Yet, it is a scientifically unexplainable miracle that Darwin did not lie when he (Darwin 1861) wrote in the third edition of the Origin of Species: ‘
'In 1831 Mr Patrick Matthew published his work on Naval Timber and Arboriculture in which he gives precisely the same view on the origin of species as that (presently to be alluded to) propounded by Mr Wallace and myself in the Linnean Journal and as that enlarged on in the present volume. Unfortunately the view was given by Mr Matthew very briefly in scattered passages in an Appendix to a work on a different subject, so that it remained unnoticed until Mr Matthew himself drew attention to it in the ‘Gardener’s Chronicle’ on April 7th, 1860.’
Fight the good fight with all thy might,
What is wrong is right
Avoid cherry-picking pseudo-scholarship
Because it is pseudoscience to cherry pick only some evidence for a phenomenon or argument but to ignore others, it essential that we weigh all of the evidence for Darwin's and Wallace's miraculous duel "independent" immaculate conceptions of a prior-published theory. Therefore, all Darwinist and Wallacist miracles must be considered and weighed in the balance. These miracles are explained in this and other Darwinist and Wallacist miracles outlined in all sermons from the Sprout.
