Today, there are many topics that are pseudoscience in the news. Pseudoscience ‘looks’ like science but isn’t. Astrology, homeopathic healing, bigfoot, the moon landing was faked are examples of ideas that may seem like science at first but once examined using the scientific method are found to be wrong. As the great Carl Sagan referenced in his book, The Demon Haunted World, scientists have a built in “baloney detector” with the knowledge and use of steps of the Scientific Method. Just as a review on how the scientific method works, view the Neil de Grasse Tyson video. You see that something as simple as the mystery of missing whipped cream on hot chocolate can be easily solved with the Scientific Method as there is solid evidence that cream floats on liquids. Therefore, you should be able to use the Scientific Method to prove or disprove pseudoscience as well.
For this discussion assignment:
Choose en example of pseudoscience from the list.
In your initial post, devise a hypothesis about this topic and explain the steps that you would take to prove the hypothesis. Also, explain how think you will be able to prove your hypothesis.
Here’s the list. Remember these are things that look like science but are actually wrong.
Choose one of these.
Astrology
Cryptozoology (bigfoot Loc Ness monster etc…)
Homeopathic medicine
Crop circles
Perpetual motion
Faces, or canals on Mars
Vaccines cause autism
Flat Earth
Hollow Earth
Bermuda Triangle
Earthquake prediction
Phrenology
