Wallace also claimed that his eureka moment for his claimed independent conception of (what he and Darwin later fully admitted to be) Patrick Matthew's (On naval Timber and Arboriculture 1831) prior published conception of the full theory of macroevolution by natural selection came about through the never before or since example of cognitive enhancing malarial brain fever! In fact, I discovered that in 1842 the editor of his 1855 Sarawak paper (Selby) read and cited Matthew's breakthrough. Moreover Wallace admitted that most of al he was influenced by Robert Chambers's Vestiges of Creation. Yet Chambers also (my 2014 discovery see 'Nullius in Verba: Darwin's greatest secret') prior cited Matthew's 1831 book, Matthew's later book and also wrote his own guide an arboriculture. I am not surprised that Wallace, the daft-as-a-brush believer in ghosts was also an anti-vaxxer. What is amazing is that the scientific community has fallen hook line and sinker for the Wallace myth. Did you know Wallace doctored a letter in his autobiography (a letter he sent to his mother) to conceal the fact he extorted money from Darwin and co for his role - with Darwi - in the 1858 Linnean Society plagiarising science forad of Matthew's prior-published theory?
