What do you do when your pioneering stem cell research has been unmasked as a hoax?

Raelians offer disgraced stem cell researcher work
South Korean cloning expert Hwang Woo-suk, a science superstar disgraced when his pioneering stem cell research was unmasked as a hoax, has a new job offer from a UFO cult that says it has produced six human clones.

Clonaid, a company linked to the Raelian Movement, a group that believes humans were cloned from prehistoric alien visitors to Earth, said it had offered him a post in one of its laboratories.

The firm has never provided proof of the six clones it says it has produced and does not reveal where the laboratories it says it has are located.

Dr Hwang quit his post at Seoul National University in December 2005 after his claim to have cloned human embryonic stem cells, which could be used to treat diseases such as Parkinson’s, was shown to have been faked.

“We at Clonaid believe that Dr Hwang has cloned human embryos and has the knowledge to develop stem cell lines,” the company said in a message posted on its website on Sunday.

The Raelian Movement, whose leader Rael—a former French sports journalist named Claude Vorhilon—says cloning is the first step towards eternal life.

When Clonaid announced that its sixth cloned baby had been born in Sydney in 2004, Australian Federal Health Minister Tony Abbott called the announcement “the medical equivalent of a UFO story.”

You won’t be laughing so hard when they unleash their army of cloned alien dogs, Chuck!

If they claim to have six clones already, why do they need a stem cell researcher?

Hmmm. Is that fish I smell?

and why would they get a researcher who had lied, if he was knowledgeable about cloning he would have been able to do it and not lie.

Because he didn’t lie. Technically it was his research staff who did all the under-hand stuff, and a s far as i’m aware he didn’t have a clue until the results were already presented. Kinda put him in a tough position, poor chap. So anyway it seems he’s gone form one work-group of nuts to another!
