December 2005--Top Korean Scientist Cloned Human

A landmark scientific paper on cloning that propelled a South Korean scientist, Hwang Woo Suk, to international stardom was an "intentional fabrication." This was one of the top guys in stem cell research in the world...


Alas, humans will do what humans will do and as Rob MacGregor's Indiana Jones said, it's about "Fortune and Glory." Speaking of Indiana Jones, have you noticed the so called archaeologists who are wearing the fedora and galavanting the world? Fortune and Glory! It makes no difference if the person is a butcher, baker or candlestick maker or scientist, politician or preacher, we all have that flaw called 'human nature' (to a greater or lesser degree).

"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." - Romans 3:23.

Don't forget Peter Popoff is making a comeback. There are con-artists out there who want fame.

I know what you mean txatheist--there are some real charlatans out there; in every occupation, venue and discipline. Anything that's real and of value has a counterfeit....but just because there are some quacks in the medical profession doesn't stop any of us from seeking medical help when we need it, does it? And we've all heard stories about bad cops, but that doesn't stop us from dialing 911 when we need one.
So why does every atheist cite the comparatively few examples of depravity among the clergy as a clarion call that religion (Christianity)is bad? Rarely do we hear of those instances where so-called scientists have fabricated data etc. and so that's why I'm doing this series about scientific malfeasance. We had scientists testifying that cigarette smoking wasn't harmful to your health, that some pesticides, defoilants, were harmless and not dangerous to the environment. Which shows that a few scientists can easily be swayed by $$$$$$. Don't you agree? That's why I'm writing these articles.
