The journalist charged with verifying the human cloning claims of the cult-linked company Clonaid has now reached the same conclusion as many observers – the claims could well be “an elaborate hoax”. Michael Guillen, former science editor of ABC News, said he has suspended the independent review process that would have genetically tested the first-born baby to prove that its DNA was indeed identical to that of another person.



“The team of scientists has had no access to the alleged family and, therefore, cannot verify firsthand the claim that a human baby has been cloned,” Guillen said in a statement on Monday. “In other words, it’s still entirely possible that Clonaid’s announcement is part of an elaborate hoax intended to bring publicity to the Raelian movement.” More here.
