Hey funkyderek, "a serious accusation"? Are you kidding? Tony Blair can plagiarize an Iraqi academic's 1991 thesis as a basis for his claim that Iraq poses a threat to the western world, then gives it to Colin Powell who argues the plagiarized material at the UN and no-one calls them on the carpet? Now that's something serious! What have you been doing about that, my friend? In regards McCanney check out the links I provided and you'll have no need to ask. In case you don't know, the scientific community hasn't a monopoly on morals or ethics---to the contrary, most scientists are as unethical as any smooth-talking snake-oil salesman or seducing scumbag, and that's why there's an Office Of Scientific Integrity.
