Top 10 CRAZIEST Pseudoscience Theories! Find out about Dowsing Rods and Nibiru Planet X!


science is all about a provable and
repeatable process you’ve probably learned it in school ask a question do
research construct a hypothesis test the hypothesis analyze the data and
communicate the results but what happens when people claim something to be fact
but they can’t really prove it to be true
we call this sway Doe science they either don’t test their theories at all
or only pick the results that support their theories this is not only terrible
science but it helps to drive many dangerous and wrong ideas stay tuned to
number one to find out which inexplicable sway Doe science is still
used to find underground sources of water today number ten astrology astrologists claim
to be able to predict a person’s personality based upon the alignment of
stars when they were born but no study has ever been able to show any strong
connection between the location of the stars in the sky and a person’s
personality or abilities astrology’s popularity may come from its tendency to
make people self fulfill their daily predictions you may not even be aware
that you’re doing it but if you read that you’re gonna have a terrible day
you are more likely to actually have one simply because it’s on your mind this is
known also as the power of suggestion because of the power of your
subconscious mind to see these predictions play out in the
innocuousness of your daily grind this particular suite of science has
developed what is also known as confirmation bias which simply means
that you will actively look for evidence to confirm your horoscope so though
astrology may have no scientific credibility our basic psychology can
cause us to believe in it even if we have no reason to number nine psychic
abilities some people are said to be able to perceive information that are
not normal within the human senses they call this ESP or extrasensory perception
and this ESP allows them to do things like read minds or speak with ghosts
many studies have been done in the field of psychic powers and they have produced
inconsistent results which means that psychics are not able to prove that they
are indeed psychic while psychic abilities may be true a lot of people
who claim to be psychic are actually just using a system of hot and cold
reading this means that they will look for answers to questions that could
cover a broad range of people making it seem like they have knowledge of a
single individual coupled with a good grasp of reading and understanding body
language they can change their answers if they think that you are reacting
negatively to their replies and therefore you believe that they are
actually able to communicate with your dead relatives number eight the
vaccination and autism link this is another contentious point with loud
voices on both sides of the argument but there are definitely some dangerous
points of this sweet Oh science theory this began in the late 1990s when a
study published by a British surgeon suggested that the MMR measles mumps and
rubella vaccine was increasing autism in British children the paper has since
been discredited because of serious procedural errors financial conflicts of
interest within those who perform the testing and also ethical violations the
man who wrote the paper eventually even lost his medical license even after all
this many look at his conclusion seriously but several other major
studies have since been conducted all of which concluded that there is no
conclusive link between any vaccine and autism to this day many believe that
vaccines cause harm which is still the subject of debate however not getting
vaccinated is equally as dangerous and puts the lives of other children at risk
and rather more concerning has the ability to bring back strains of many
terrible diseases that were once thought to be eradicated
number 7 homeopathy created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann cures for any and all
ailments were manufactured using a process of homeopathic dilution where a
chosen substance is repeatedly diluted to the point where no molecules of the
original substance remain homeopathy claims water can cure you because it
once held medicine think about that for a second and then think about all the
other things of water has held and then maybe don’t because it’s too disgusting
homeopathy is not a plausible treatment because it’s beliefs about how drugs
illness the human body liquids and solutions work have been contradicted by
a wide range of discoveries and other topics including biology psychology
physics and chemistry and yes some clinical trials have produced positive
results but multiple systemic reviews have shown that this is because of
chance flawed research methods and reporting bias let’s just stick with the
doctors number 6 intelligent design if the answer to every question about
evolution is because God wanted it that way then you believe more in faith than
science and that’s okay we’re certainly not here to convince you otherwise
but intelligent design is a religious argument for the existence of God
presented by its followers as an evidence-based scientific theory about
life’s origins but as all evidence points to the contrary it could also be
considered swayed Oh science supporters of intelligent design often claim that
certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an
intelligent cause not an undirected process such as natural selection
however educators philosophers and the scientific community have demonstrated
that creationism lacks any empirical support and offers no testable or
tenable hypothesis and so it’s not science not to say that that should
waver your faith number 5 toxins and chemical free ever been on a cleanse to
rid your body of toxins ever question what those toxins actually are well
scientifically they are a poisonous substance produced by living cells that
when introduced into a new body causes the creation of antibodies it is not
just a coverall term for a bad thing that’s in all the stuff I don’t like
while a detox diet may well encourage you to eat more healthy food that’s
really all it’s doing and while we’re at it can we stop saying that things are
chemical free they’re not in fact you are a walking bag of chemicals not all
chemicals are bad after all you die without h2o + o2 wouldn’t you there are
an outstanding number of items advertised as chemical free seriously
google it but there is no such thing as chemical free shampoo it will maybe have
less damaging chemicals in it but even all natural products are made of
chemicals because Mom everything is number 4 graphology
graphology or graph analysis but not graph analysis is the belief that a
person’s personality can be seen in their handwriting that the physical
characteristics and patterns of handwriting can identify the writer
indicates psychological state at the time of writing and evaluate personal
characteristics controversial for more than a century graphology supporters
often try to show anecdotal evidence of positive testimonials as a reason to use
this way to science for personality evaluation however as with all the
things I’ve mentioned earlier empirical studies fail to show any validity number
three Nibiru Cataclysm this is the belief that
there is a large planet Planet X or Nibiru close to our solar system and
that we are destined to collide with it causing the end of the world there is
however absolutely no evidence of this other planets existence but this does
not stop the supporters who believe that NASA is at the heart of the global elite
conspiracy to hide the truth from the general population while they seek
refuge in secret underground bunkers the existence of Nibiru was first speculated
in 1976 when writers zecharia sitchin claimed that the Babylonians and the
Sumerians total of a great planet dubbed Nibiru which orbited the Sun and in 1995
by Nancy Leiter who started a website called Zeta talk where she tells people
that she can communicate with extraterrestrial life these beings from
the planet Zeta Reticuli star system sent her messages via an implant in her
brain these beings told her to warn mankind of its impending doom as Nibiru
would enter our solar system in 2003 well that didn’t happen and so that
changed to September 2017 but we’re still here number 2 flat earthers here
we go my favorite of the Swade Oh Sciences though flat earthers members of
the Flat Earth Society claim to believe that the earth is flat this is because
when they walk around on the planet’s surface it looks and feels flat when in
reality the earth is just vastly bigger than they
and it looks flat because the difference in size makes it difficult for the naked
eye to see natural curvature any and all evidence to the contrary including
images of the Earth from space clearly showing the world to be round are said
to have been altered by NASA the leading Flat Earth theory holds that the earth
is a disc with the Arctic Circle in the center and Antarctica is a 150 foot wall
of ice around the rim NASA is full of employees who are apparently only there
to stop people from climbing over the wall and falling off the disk they
explain night and day by saying to the moon known to be 384,000 kilometers from
Earth and the Sun 147 million kilometers from Earth our spheres that are really
32 miles across and move in circles only 3,000 miles above the surface of the
earth oh and there’s also an invisible anti moon that hides the moon during the
lunar eclipse they also believe that there is no gravity but rather than the
earth is driven upwards at 32 feet per second squared by some dark energy
flat-earthers also think that GPS devices are rigged to make airplane
pilots think they are flying in straight lines around a sphere when they are
actually flying in circles above a disk I’m not sure what else I can say
apart from that recently when asked by Elon Musk why there was no flat Mars
society they replied by saying that Mars had been observed to be round well I
have news for you so his earth number one dowsing rods
proved by science to be as effective as random chance dowsing is still used to
this day by some water companies as a way of finding underground water wells
dowsing is a type of divination using two l-shaped twigs or rods individually
called a dowsing rod divining rod or witching rod in blind attempts to locate
groundwater buried metals or ores gemstones oil gravesites and any other
buried item without the use of a scientific apparatus holding the rods in
your hands you walk with them out in front of you until they move
cost each other a signal that you have found what you’re looking for the
movement of dowsing rods is now generally attributed to the ID ometer
effect the ID ometer effect is a reflexive response usually to pain but
the body sometimes reacts reflexively to ideas alone without the person
consciously making the movements the effects of automatic writing dowsing
Ouija boards have all been attributed to this phenomenon you want something to
happen your body creates it are there any other sweet Oh Sciences that you
