Do You Believe in STAP Stem Cells: Poll #10

  1. Paul,
    Your Poll #9 showed that European scientists were more open to the possibility that the STAP phenomenon was real. Some of your commenters said that these scientists were pulling your leg. I don’t think that this is the case. I think that, in the absence of hard data one way or the other, the different groups on the two sides of the Atlantic (Americans versus Europeans) are showing their different biases or orientations. Whereas American biologists cannot fathom that STAP could be real (that was my initial reaction), European biologists may be more open to the possibility. It’s going to be exciting to find out who is more right!
