Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) insisted that we should first read the book of Mother Nature, and only subsequently read books written by man (see p. 144 and 175 in “Planetary Influence on the Sun and the Earth, and a Modern Book-Burning, Nova Sci. Publ., 2015). No one has read the book of Mother Nature better than our honorary president Charles Darwin. Besides, his words of 1871: “false facts are highly injurious to the progress of science” can stand as a declaration for our new Independent Committee on Geoethics (founded on October 17, 2015, in Prague).
The Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection (Darwin, 1858) – i.e. his theory of a continual evolution of life throughout the Earth’s history – is proven correct by all means. We may even say that those who deny this (i.e. the “creationists”) do not represent science, progress and logics, but simple anti-scientific illusion (Fig. 1).
