Scientific, Thursday, December 15, 2005--Stem Cell Meltdown

...Flabbergasting. In six months, this work went from being one of the most celebrated accomplishments of recent biotechnology—probably a strong contender for future Nobel consideration—to what may become a legendary scientific fraud akin to the Piltdown man.


Flabbergasting. That was the only word that came to mind in past weeks as the allegations and admissions continued to mount over Woo Suk Hwang's announcement from last summer that his lab had cloned embryonic stem cells from 11 human patients. It was a breathtakingly exciting advance, one that seemed to hasten the day when embryonic stme cells might be applied to treat or cure diseases. By any reckoning, it was one of the stand-out scientific achievements of the year, and it was enough to net Hwang a top spot on this year's Scientific American 50 list. But bit by bit, this milestone in stem cell technology has been crumbling away, and it's beginning to look as though there's nothing left. ...

Srila Prabhupada: How subtle laws are working, what do they know the scientists? Therefore their so-called knowledge is mayaya apahrita-jnanah, actual knowledge is taken away by maya. And they are thinking, "I am very learned man, scholar." But actual knowledge is taken away. Mayaya apahrita-jnanah. Why? Asuri-bhava. They won't accept God. Therefore they are all fools. In spite of all these degrees, they are all fools. Therefore they cannot explain everything very nicely. "In future we shall see."

Svarupa Damodara: They are saying that "We are beginning to learn more and more..."

Prabhupada: Yes. That means that you are fool. While you are in the process of learning, that means you are fool. Say directly that we are fool. That is gentlemanliness. You do not know; still, you pose, "I am, we are scholar, we are scientist. Give us Nobel Prize." You see. This is going on. We don't want Nobel Prize. We are giving the topmost knowledge. We don't hanker after Nobel Prize. But they give false knowledge and hanker after Nobel Prize. Just see. Their real aim is how to get the Nobel Prize by cheating. That is their real aim. How an educated man, learned man will cheat? So therefore my Guru Maharaja used to say that "This modern human society, or always, it is a society of the cheaters and the cheated." Somebody is cheating and somebody's cheated, and they have combined together to make a so-called civilization.
