If you're interested in knowing what science is, it's also a good idea to learn what science isn't.
No, that's not quite right. If you're interested in knowing what is science, you also need to know how to recognize what is not science. Many things have been called science when in fact they aren't. Knowing how to recognize these various kinds of "imitation" science, or pseudoscience, is a very useful skill for everyone to have. I firmly believe that if more people knew how to recognize pseudoscience, we'd all be less vulnerable to the scams and lies perpetrated by con men and unscrupulous politicians.Could not connect:
