Look, I don't know too much about Stem Cell research. I know that the claim is that these cells will somehow replace bad cells in ailing people. Here's been my beef: I believe that life begins at conception and that using embryos to create these stem cells is morally wrong. We have debated that point here before, and I am certain will debate it here again.

But it seems like the major researcher and scientist in this field is full of crap.

How does this impact this controversial science? One person (admittedly, like me, pro-life) calls this Hwang "The whole field". And this story from June seems to indicate the relative truth of that statement. Hwang is being treated almost god-like in that article.

Some articles I've read about this say things like "This kind of error is a grave act that damages the foundation of science," (from the AP). Those are rather big words to say the least.

AWA, I'm with you on the whole "life begins at conception" thing. This definitly strikes a blow against stem-cell reasearch....

Or does it?

There has been MAD significant break-throughs when it comes to stem cells which don't require dead babies (umbilical cords for one). Hopefully, the stem-cell reasearch that doesn't require dead children won't get tossed because of this guy.

It probably sets the whole of Stem Cell research back about 3-8 years from where everybody thought it was. And seeing as how this will prove to be some great pundit talk fodder now that the "Happy Holidays Crisis" is coming to an end, I'm sure we'll be hearing about it for long enough to cause some more avenues of US funding to dry up.

But in the end, if there's something to be learned from Stem Cells, someone is going to find it. There just won't be any American scientists appending their names to the findings this time around.
