Default Re: Today in scientific fraud

Stapel, who was a professor of social and behavioural sciences at Tilburg, was suspended last month after doubts emerged about research that concluded eating meat makes people anti-social and selfish... Earlier research by Stapel, a frequent guest on television chat shows, found that a messy room makes people aggressive and beautiful people have better chances in life.
He didn't fake data to support a conclusion that confirms his deeply-held philosophical beliefs, which is what I originally assumed, he faked data to support silly bullshit that gets attention. I'm amused.
