Pseudoscience Task

Pseudoscience Task

Walt: Find and link information across a range of texts

Work on this Doc together with a partner.

What was the author's main message in pseudoscience
The author’s main message was if people believe in “Carrots can help you see in the Dark?” or “Chocolate can give you good memories” then you have to try and find that out yourself to see if it works when people think these things are true.

Another main message that the author was explaining about “Pseudoscience” is when people believe something that they don’t know, they should try and experiment that one subject that everybody believes so they can see if the statement is true or not.

What are some of the differences between scientists and advertisers?

Write 3 sentences explaining something new you’ve learned from this reading.

What I have learnt about Pseudoscience is that the word ‘Pseudoscience’ is a collection of beliefs that people believe or practices mistakenly regarded as being based on a scientific method.

I have also learnt that Pseudoscience is any body of alleged knowledge, methodology, belief, or practice that claims to be scientific, but does not fit with the actual nature of science. The word “Pseudo” means fake.

The surest way to spot a fake is to know as much as possible about the real thing - in this case, about science itself. Knowing science does not mean simply knowing scientific facts - it means understanding the nature of science.
