But we might also have a seriously confused author.

R. Joseph is Rhawn Joseph... advocate of directed panspermia and has developed his own hypothesis. He believes life did not originate on Earth but was transplanted to Earth by "cosmic seeds" encased in space debris 700 million years after the formation of the Earth. He claims that these genetic seeds filled with DNA contained the genetic instructions for the metamorphosis of all life, including woman and man. He also rejects the neo-Darwinian synthesis, instead replacing it with a form of non-Darwinian evolution which he describes as a "pre-determined evolutionary metamorphosis" which is pre-programmed in DNA of all life on earth.

Other masterworks by the same author:

His Geocities-era website simply must be seen to be believed:

Here's his narcissistic list of publications.

The Index (Neuroscience, Astrobiology, Quantum Physics).


Sex Differences. Females Have More Sex  [i.e., women are evil whores].

Evolution of Sexual Consciousness: Breasts, Buttocks & the Big Brain.

Wow. He is really a juvenile racist sexist homophobe. Don't waste your time.

Jesus Christ: The Passion--And the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John 
This is actually by R. Gabriel Joseph [Edited to add: apparently]

ADDENDUM (July 18, 2013): That ridiculous Evolution of Sexual Consciousness travesty was originally published in the "Journal" of Cosmology but later retracted due to "censorship" (only to reappear on Joseph's own site):

My porn is science, dammit!

In the summer of 2011, the journal published an article by Rhawn Joseph entitled "Sexual Consciousness: The Evolution of Breasts, Buttocks and the Big Brain". PZ Myers made fun[12] of the article's thesis and the random images of naked women that it contained. Apparently some other people were not happy about it either, because the article was retracted moved to Rhawn Joseph's personal site ( and its original page got replaced with a whiny rant decrying censorship.[13]

Lulz. I'm pretty sure he stole most of his pictures from the old Erowid website. This is actually kind of adorable. Granted, in a rambling, demented, pornographic sort of way. He'd make an excellent Philip Roth character.

Also, I think Battlestar Galactica might owe this dude money for that series finale.
