That is terrible...but scientists are human too.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

Character is more important than education, wouldn't you agree.

> ...but scientists are human too.

Which is why science demands peer review before accepting something probable. If what is being researched cannot be reproduced by three or four independent groups, then the original experiement/research is probably flawed.

Peer review won't catch falsified data however, it's mostly to offer advise and critique the submitted study.

All in all there were 247 complaints, of which I'd bet more than half are actually found to be falsified or fradulent data. With the sheer number of publications per year, these cases make up a very small percentage.

...the whole experience is (and is as) a profound piece of knowledge.  It is an indellible experience; it is forever known.  I have known myself in a way I doubt I would have ever occurred except as it did.

Smith, P.  Bull. Menninger Clinic (1959) 23:20-27; p. 27.

...most subjects find the experience valuable, some find it frightening, and many say that is it uniquely lovely.

Osmond, H.  Annals, NY Acad Science (1957) 66:418-434; p.436

there was one case on that page of a researcher caught falsifying data and was only banned from receiving grants for 3 years. guess he'll be more careful next time.
