Science ka Adda: Science and Pseudoscience

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” – Stephen Hawking

Science is the systematic acquisition of knowledge derived from observation, experimentation and study of empirical evidence. Civilization as we know it today, rests on the foundations of practical applications of verifiable scientific discoveries. Pseudoscience on the other hand is a collection of assertions that do not satisfy the requirements of science, but claim to be scientific. Join them at T2F for their next “Science Ka Adda” as Dr. Ather Enam helps you understand science and pseudoscience and how to tell them apart.
