Invented Results

Wow the whole stem cell debacle is all over the press. And in the process Science is scarred in the public's imagination.

(On the other hand, scientists are conservative when it comes to the belief in other peoples work. Science is a brutal place. There is always someone who is re-evaluating, re-dissecting, re-examining, your ideas/results. Many times these same people are advocating that your ideas be discarded. After a while, if an idea is repeatedly confirmed by others, it MAY be accepted by everyone.)

Since we are on the topic of ideas and results, I've updated the Worst things about science II. While we are so pessimistic, you can also check out the Worst things about science (part I).
