UnMoral Minds

Wow, not even peer-reviewed journal articles are safe from false information.  Apparently a Harvard researcher, Marc Hauser, may have provided false, made-up data (at least for the control condition of the study) for a 2002 article published in the journal Cognition.  Although extremely rare something like this would happen, it's worth taking note of.  Sad to say, but this man will likely be looking for a new career. Ironically, he published a book called Moral Minds. It looks like someone teaching others about right and wrong has a few things to learn.

Read the story here.  And because I know you're interested (obviously I was), here is the man behind the story and his photo is at right.
