I got an unsolicited (I don’t think…) book in the mail today entitled “Pro Evo”, subtitled “Pro Evolution - Guideline for an Age of Joy”, with a card reading:
At first scan it reads very much like a Unification Church (“Moonies”) book I once took in the late 1980s, as part of my self-study in Comparative Religions Of The NYC Subway (along with rather entertaining “Jews for Jesus” pamphlets, issues of “The Watchtower” in both English and Spanish, and random New Age stuff). But it’s also kind of anti-religious, it purports that There Is No God as one of its cornerstones.
Weird. I wonder how I got it? Even Wikipedia has nothing to say about its apparent author, “Tomotom Stiftung”. His “Foundation” is Verlag Asama AG in Chur, Switzerland, and the book (including “this English translation”) was printed in Germany.
Googling for this book’s title and author turned up mostly bewildered queries like mine of “where did this come from? / why did I get this book?”, along with over 150 “new and used” copies for sale on Amazon.com, mostly for $0.01, though there are four sellers labeling their copies as “collectible” (one of them going so far as to describe the book as “destined to become a classic”) and thus offered at $15.00 to $20.60. (HA!)
