    That’s interesting about the faked gay study, Mary. I was looking for the study to possibly mine it for details in a essay I’m writing for the humanist market. I’m two for two on my submissions to the skeptical and humanist market (Skeptical Inquirer and Free Inquiry), so it’s obvious where I need to focus my new non-fiction career. (I was a fiction writer before my six-week coma, which was kind of blessing, despite the fact that I’m still in rehab.) Both works stem from my coma experience, as does the new one.

    Anyway, I couldn’t remember the details about the study well enough to find it via Google, so I decided to quote a Pew survey instead. I guess it wouldn’t have mattered, since I haven’t finished the editing of the new essay yet, but still…whew!

    Thanks so much for sharing this!

    Wow, the information on the faked study has advanced a lot since yesterday. I was about to say the headline was wrong because it was retracted because the data could not be verified. Turns out it is looking like a whole cloth fabrication.
