Cult says Faked Clone Results are TrueTopics: Moonbats
An American company has come to the rescue of embattled cloning sicentist Hwang Woo-sook, the researcher who will go down in history for publishing fake human cloning results in scientific journals. Clonaid, founded by a cult called "Raelian Movement," has offered Hwang a research partnership at its secret research facility. Although Hwang's results have now been confirmed as fabricated by the South Korean government, Clonaid asserts they are real:
It is interesting to do the mental exercise, for just a few seconds, and ask oneself - why would Dr Hwang play with the hope of millions of people who are desperately waiting for stem-cell cure to be available for either themselves or one of their relatives? Why would he declare that he has made these lines, if he wasn't able to do it, knowing that millions are watching him and that he would have to deliver them soon?In other words, forget the facts and trust the good character of Hwang, who admits the data was faked:
"The use of fake data ... is what I have to take full responsibility for as first author," Hwang told a nationally televised news conference. "I acknowledge all of that and apologize once again."Although bizarre, the belief in Hwang's fake data is not inconsistent with the imaginary Clonaid world of UFOs and eternal life through cloning.
"I ask for your forgiveness," Hwang said. "I feel so miserable that it's difficult even to say sorry."
