>Paper comes under fire
'熟蛋返生'论文杂志停刊

Zhengzhou, capital of Henan province, has set up a working group to investigate a local vocational training school that published an academic paper about making cooked eggs hatch chicks. The paper, titled "Turning Cooked Eggs into Raw Eggs-an Experimental Report on Hatching Chicks", was recently published on Pictorial Geography, and its authors include Guo Ping, the school's headmaster.
河南省郑州市成立联合工作组,对郑州市春霖职业培训学校展开全面调查。此前,该校校长郭平等人在《写真地理》刊发"熟蛋返生孵小鸡"论文。该论文全称为《熟鸡蛋变成生鸡蛋(鸡蛋返生)—孵化雏鸡的实验报告》。

The paper describes how teachers and students at the school have been able to turn cooked eggs into raw eggs through "parapsychological consciousness" and have successfully converted 40 eggs that hatched into chicks.
论文描述称,"在该校导师指导下,学生通过超心理意识能量方法,使煮熟的鸡蛋变成生鸡蛋,并将返生后的鸡蛋孵化成小鸡,而且已成功返生40多枚"。

It soon sparked wide criticism online, with many people calling the results pseudoscience, questioning the academic integrity of the school and raising doubts on how such a paper passed the journal's review process.
论文很快在网上引发了广泛批评,许多人称之为伪科学,质疑学校的学术诚信,并对这样一篇论文如何通过该杂志的审查过程提出了质疑。
