Well, so much for the idea that science is an objective exercise, carried out by people with a desire to find “the answer”, no matter what the answer may be. This article in the Guardian shows that SOME people really “can’t handle the truth”. It is somewhat disturbing to me that the fellowship (of research scientists) I hope to join in the near future has members mercenary enough to participate in this type of exercise. It’s not a surprise to me, just terribly disappointing when it is presented in the open. This is both ethically and morally wrong.
