Fake news! Dr. Fang Zhouzi's dirty language trickery (172 查看)

Translator's note:

In 2013, when being accused of cold-bloodiness and having few long-term friends, Fang refuted the "rumor" by listing twenty people, among them was a person called “Sansi Kenan” (三思柯南)——Fang claimed that they had known each other for 14 years, i. e. since 1999, when Fang took the stage in China. Indeed, that person, his real name is Du Lei (杜磊), is arguably one of the most infamous, notorious, and frightening Fang-lovers, simple because his bites were not only vicious and poisonous, but also continuous and endless. (Please see my “Open Letter to Nature, Part XLI: The Hanly War (II): Fang’s Water Army (I): Introduction”.)As a matter of fact, many people, either Fang-lovers or Fang-haters, consider him one of the two Fiduciaries of Fang’s Law(护法).

However, the relationship between Fang and Du deteriorated rapidly after Fang fled China in October, 2014, and only after that Mr. Du began to reflect on Fang's fraudulent “fraud fighting,” in which he had fought on Fang’s side consistently, tirelessly, and wholeheartedly. And the following article is one of his many reflections, or more appropriately, confessions – in 2017, Mr. Du began directly calling Fang “liar” or “cheater” (骗子). The fact is, Fang has always fought his fights with fraudulent tactics, without a single exception, but before his breakup with Fang, Mr. Du had never questioned, let alone challenged or debunked, Fang's evildoing, not even once. It remains to be determined whether his fight against his formal master is due to his re-found conscience, or just the continuation of his senseless aggressive nature.

By the way, Fang has been targeting Dr. Pan Jianwei since the beginning of 2005 without explicit reasons. My educated guess is that because Dr. Pan is a star professor at the University of Science and Technology in China, from which Fang obtained his bachelor's degree in 1990. Everyone knows that Fang hates his alma mater vehemently, calling it a "vocation school," because he was slighted or mistreated in early 2000s when he went back there.

The following article was published at 2017-12-30 12:43 on weibo.com. I take the liberty to translate it in its entirety to let the world know how evil the British John Maddox prize winner Fang really is, in his formal lover and long-term comrade’s eyes; and how miserable the current situation of Fang's SciCult and SciNazi, which was so frightful and horrendous just a few years earlier, actually is.

Fake news! Dr. Fang Zhouzi's dirty language trickery

Dr. Fang Zhouzi, please don't create and spread rumors in front of journal Nature.

Dr. Fang Zhouzi made a rumor about journal Nature. Dr. Fang Zhouzi used the rumor to criticize Pan Jianwei. After I debunked Dr. Fang Zhouzi's rumor, Dr. Fang Zhouzi used another rumor to defend himself. Now, let's take a look at Dr. Fang Zhouzi's dirty language trickery.

After I pointed out that Dr. Fang Zhouzi had used a fraudulent tactic to criticize Pan Jianwei of USTC, to mislead his readers to believe that journal Nature believes that Pan Jianwei has wasted the scientific research fund because they listed him in Nature's 10 together with an antiscience official in the United States, Dr. Fang Zhouzi remained silent for 4 full days, daring not to make a response. Then, he chose to attack the website of Science Park, which published my article, on another issue. It is pretty much like that eastern neighbor country which uses the tactic of “I'll attack South Korea if I am attacked.” One day later, Dr. Fang Zhouzi finally responded, and this time, what he said as following:

“Sci-cheat Park proclaimed before that I had lost my qualification to popularize science, now, it allows a patient of split personality disorder with severe dyslexia to proclaim that I have also lost my qualification to fight against fraud, only because I pointed out the fact that the so called 'Nature's 10' contains all sorts of people, a person made the list doesn't mean that person had made a significant scientific achievement. It seems that once someone has clung to the big thigh of the government, he acts like the mouthpiece of the Party, and pretends to be the judge.”

Not surprisingly, this post is the masterpiece of Dr. Fang Zhouzi's dirty language trickery. Dr. Fang Zhouzi tries to interpret his post, which criticized Pan Jianwei by using a fraudulent tactic, as “I pointed out the fact that the so called 'Nature's 10' contains all sorts of people, a person made the list doesn't mean that person had made a significant scientific achievement.” However, Dr. Fang Zhouzi's original words before the post are the following:

“Nature's so called 'Ten people who mattered this year' include the new head of EPA in the U.S., he was selected because he is against science. Pan Jianwei was selected because he caused a sensation by spending 100 million Yuan of tax payers' money to launch experimentally a satellite with no any other use, which is unthinkable in other countries. His supporters call him 'Father of Quantum, ' anyone with a sense of shame should have rejected the title, (but he) actually accepted it, and even took the opportunity to boast himself.”

The trickery Dr. Fang Zhouzi utilized in the above post is that he at first says that journal Nature selected an American antiscience official for the Top 10 science figures, and then he says "Pan was selected because of spending 100 million Yuan of tax payers' money." The trick contains two key elements. The first one is to let his readers to believe that the Nature's 10 is a blacklist, the people on the list are all bad guys. The fact is, just as I pointed out in my previous article, among the 10 people selected by Nature there is a person, Scott Pruitt, who is hostile towards science, but the rest are people who have essentially promoted science, based on the description by Nature. For example, Jennifer Byrne uses technical approach to expose the scientists who have committed frauds in their papers, which is very different from Fang Zhouzi who primarily relies upon the information provided to him by other people. Besides Pan Jianwei, other people include David Liu who engages in the research on gene-editing, Marica Branchesi who is the organizer for gravitational-wave observation and research, Emily Whitehead who is the leukemia patient benefited from gene-therapy, Lassina Zerbo who is the head of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization, Víctor Cruz-Atienza who is a seismologist trying to predict earthquakes, Ann Olivarius who is a lawyer working against sexual-harassment in academic institutions, and Khaled Toukan who is a physicist in the Middle East.

Therefore, the list of Nature's 10 is not a blacklist.

The second key element in Dr. Fang Zhouzi's trick, which is also the more important one, is that he manufactured a rumor. Please pay attention to this: what Dr. Fang Zhouzi meant was “Pan … was selected because [of] … spending 100 million Yuan of tax payers' money.” This is a lie, because Nature didn't say that. On the contrary, Nature's description of Pan was rather positive, anyone can verify this by reading Nature's original text which I attached at the end of this article. What Nature said is this: “It's an apt name for Pan Jianwei, widely hailed for leading China to the forefront of long-distance quantum communication: harnessing quantum laws to transmit information securely.” “Pan's skill lies in picking the right problem and taking risks, says Monroe. 'China is very lucky to have him. '”

Anyone with normal reading ability should be able to tell that the tone of the small biographical piece about Pan Jianwei by Nature is positive and affirmative, from that no one is able to summarized the meaning like Dr. Fang Zhouzi did, “Pan … was selected because [of] … spending 100 million Yuan of tax payers' money.”

It can be seen from the above that in his first post, Dr. Fang Zhouzi criticized Pan Jianwei by rumormongering and misleading: he rumormongers by forging the reason for Nature's selection of Pan; he misleads by mentioning, besides Pan, only one person on the list who happens to be the only antiscience personal, which leads Dr. Fang Zhouzi's readers to believe the list is a blacklist.

What Dr. Fang Zhouzi said in the latter post, “'Nature's 10' contains all sorts of people, a person made the list doesn't mean that person had made a significant scientific achievement,” is even more a lie. I say it is a lie exactly because in his earlier post, besides Pan Jianwei, he only mentioned the lone antiscience personal on the list, how could that be “'Nature's 10' contains all sorts of people”? Dr. Fang Zhouzi only mentioned two people, one is an official who opposes science, the other is Pan Jianwei who has been denounced by him as a cheater, is this Dr. Fang's “'Nature's 10' contains all sorts of people”?

Dr. Fang Zhouzi used the forged reason for Pan's selection by Nature to criticize Pan Jianwei (Dr. Fang Zhouzi's original text is “Pan Jianwei was selected because he caused a sensation by spending 100 million Yuan of tax payers' money to launch experimentally a satellite with no any other use, which is unthinkable in other countries.”——I guess Dr. Fang Zhouzi might be further quibbling by saying that what I said was Pan was selected, I didn't say Pan was selected by Nature——, which was debunked by me, and then he used a new lie to defend himself.

What even more disgusting is, Dr. Fang Zhouzi attached two pictures to his post, one is the title of my article, the other is an article about religion published by Science Park and I am not the author. I guess what Dr. Fang Zhouzi was trying to do was to use the grafting technique to put a “once someone has clung to the big thigh of the government, he acts like the mouthpiece of the Party, and pretends to be the judge” tag on me.

This is Dr. Fang Zhouzi's dirty language trickery.

Before I finish, I want to reiterate what I said in my previous article:

“Although Dr. Fang Zhouzi is a doctorate in biochemistry and according to his supporter Light House and Little Boat, he is also a doctorate in linguistics, he has long been criticizing Pan Jianwei who conducts quantum physics research. And this time, Dr. Fang Zhouzi chose to criticize Pan by forging a fake news, which is unacceptable, because the bottom line is, a self-appointed fraud fighter shouldn't fight fraud by committing fraud.”

"In 2006, when Nature reported Dr. Fang Zhouzi's fraud fighting, they mentioned that some people worried about Dr. Fang Zhouzi's tactics, which reminded them the Cultural Revolution. And the saddest thing is, it appears that Dr. Fang Zhouzi is justifying the worry in his own way."

"The issues like whether Pan Jianwei's research is questionable and whether the fund should be used in such research can be, and should be, discussed and criticized publicly. However, the discussion and criticism should be conducted justly and fairly."


If someone accuses me of “clinging to Pan Jianwei's big thigh” after I post this article, then it demonstrates, at least, he or she hasn't finished reading this article of mine at all.
