Following up on a story UD News reported earlier, Retraction Watch reports:
In what can only be described as a remarkable and swift series of events, one of the authors of a much-ballyhooed Science paper claiming that short conversations could change people’s minds on same-sex marriage is retracting it following revelations that the data were faked by his co-author.
If one digs further into the story it will quickly become apparent that the data backing the paper were facially absurd. Where was the much ballyhooed peer review process?
*The phrase “advocacy science” should, of course, be an oxymoron. Sadly, it is not.
