Science and Pseudoscience

Differences between pseudoscience and science

  • Pseudoscientific ideas are not tested, or can not be tested (i.e. not testable). Science ideas are tested, and are testable.
  • Pseudoscientific ideas are not given to scientists to read before they go into a paper (called “peer review”). Science papers are peer reviewed.
  • Pseudoscientific ideas are not based on facts. Science is based on facts and observations.
