Founded in 1872 by Obadiah Ersatz of Pennsylvania, the Ersatz Journal of Science was the premier publication that brought the wonders of scientific discovery to the general population.
In 1908, the publication founded a society of scientific colleagues that met annually to review the greatest scientific achievements of the year and awarded recognition to those scientists that had brought the most good to society through their work.
In 1933, the publication turned towards a darker path with the inclusion of “smut” in an attempt to increase circulation and sales.
In 1941, the publication supported the war efforts of the United States through strategic scientific propaganda meant to dehumanize the Nazi party. The Germanic racial slur “kraut” was first coined here.
In the 1970’s, Ersatz included a strong emphasis on social science and pharmacology. Although, the details of this period are hazy.
In the 1990’s, the publication attempted to be the premier literary entity on the blossoming internet. However, the project was abandoned after the entire budget was spent on animated .gif images.
The internet era for Ersatz was not attempted until mid 2015. Although a late bloomer to the information age, Ersatz is certainly upholding the honorable traditions of Obadiah today.
