A derivative of the words “paleontologist” and “prostitute;” referring generally to a scientist whom allows money, fame or notoriety to interfere with scientific study or the established methods of scientific research.
Example: "After receiving a handsome stipend from the local church, the paleostitute provided research data which clearly demonstrated tiktaalik to be a golden retriever with scoliosis.”
The wildtype paleostitutes typically exists as one of two species:
A species of scientist specializing in the subject areas of paleontology, paleoecology or paleoanthropology that willingly and fraudulently alters, modifies or misrepresents research for purpose of receiving direct payment.
A species of scientist specializing in the subject areas of paleontology, paleoecology or paleoanthropology that willingly exaggerates the significance of scientific evidence for the purpose of publishing a popular work, reinforcing previously held hypotheses, creating a documentary on the History Channel, receiving free drinks at a tavern or impressing members of the opposite sex.
