The great man has supplied the Arab Thought Foundation with false credentials, and thus been appointed one of four judges in the category of Scientific and Technical Creativity Awards. Also named as a judge is Dr. Saleh Al Athel, formerly President of King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology in Saudia Arabia. Dr. Al Athel is the co-author with El Naschie of a terrifying paper applying El Naschie's nonsense E-infinity theory to the design of nuclear reactors.
The Arabic version of the announcement calls El Naschie "أستاذ بالجامعات الألمانية والبريطانية" or "Professor of German and British universities" which is both vague and untrue in any interpretation. He has never been a professor at any British or German university.
The English version of the announcement is more specific and equally untrue. There he is said to be a professor at The British University in Egypt and The German University in Egypt.
El Naschie has never held any real academic appointment except an emeritus professorship at Alexandria University. He was foisted upon AU by Hend Hanafi, president of the university, much to the embarrassment of the Department of Physics. He may be the only person ever to have become an emeritus (retired) professor without having been an actual professor.
For years El Naschie falsely claimed affiliation with the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University.
His website calls him "Distinguished Fellow by the Association for the Advancement of Fundamental Scientific Research at the Institute of Physics of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt, Germany" which is true, but not an academic appointment. It's just a fancy title given to financial contributors.
El Naschie is a make-believe scientist.
I have tried warn Arab Thought Foundation via their contact page and send them a link to this article. But I am getting some kind of submission failure. Readers can try their luck.
