Zermatism

Zermatism is a pseudoscience invented by Stanislav Szukalski (1893?-1987), a gifted Polish artist and immigrant to the United States, in a 39-volume work. Zermatism maintains that all human culture derived from Easter Island after the flood which destroyed all living creatures except those on Noah's ark. All languages derive from a single source (the Protong) and all art is a variation on a few themes that can be distilled down to a single series of universal symbols. Zermatism explains the differences in races and cultures by claiming that they are due to the cross breeding of species. The first humans were nearly perfect but they mated with Yeti with abominable results.
