Verily, Nature’s palette of pigments and paints underscores the need of bioresources centres to capture, classify and conserve the planet’s biotreasury lest extinction result from benign neglect and commercial exploitation.
--Edgar J. DaSilva, 2004, Electronic Journal of Biotechnology 7(3): 1
So, mollusque, you would have us believe that someone actually wrote a sentence in the year 2004 that began with the word "verily".
Forsooth, I have a hard time believing this, Gadzooks! But perhaps Edgar is trying to be a professor smartypantzen, or engaging in a lame effort at wry hilarity. Or - more likely - English is not his mother tongue.
