Pseudo-Science present itself as science in order to make its claims seem more robust or secure than they actually are. We can call it ‘fake’ science also. Or in other words we can say that pseudo-science is not scientific at all, but they try to create the impression that they are scientific.
We just understand the basic meaning of pseudo-science. Now we will discuss about the typic features of pseudo-sciences.
Typical features of pseudo-sciences
Pseudo-Science misrepresents itself as scientific in an effort to appear credible while avoiding the requirements and implications of the scientific method. This is pseudoscience, also known as “fake science,” which is nonscientific reasoning disguising itself as science in order to make its claims appear more solid or secure than they actually are.
(1) Science seeks falsifications, whereas pseudo-science looks for confirmations.
(2) Claims made in the name of science are frequently untestable.
(3) Error is inevitable, but science recognizes this and searches for and gets rid of it. Pseudoscientists do not want their theories to be disproven because they typically begin with a strong devotion to them. They don’t approach the investigation with the sincere intention of testing their allegations.
It is easier to comprehend the clash between science and pseudoscience. The community of knowing disciplines, which comprises the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, can be found on one side of the issue. On the opposing side, we find a wide range of ideologies and movements, including creationism, astrology, homoeopathy, and Holocaust denial, which are at odds with findings and approaches that are widely acknowledged by the community of academic disciplines.
