Selective Scientific Memory
For those of you who don't know, this was one of the most poorly designed studies that money was ever spent on, that didn't adequately control for, well, anything, really. But the women who got prayed for by anonymous people half-way around the world supposedly had increased rates of fertility treatment success. On further review, it turns out to be hogwash, but Columbia University is being really snarky about admitting they've been duped.
I don't know what can be done to increase the enforcement of ethical standards within the scientific community, if anything, but we have to step up to the plate here and show the rest of the world that we can do our part. How can we work to increase knowledge and better mankind if we can't be trusted to tell the truth?
