pseudo scientific theory
A theory about natural phenomena which is claimed to be based on sound scientific reasoning, but is not.
Hallmarks of pseudoscientific theories
• Incompatible with broader, more fundamental scientific theories that are supported by overwhelming evidence
• Violation of the testability/falsifiability requirement–i.e., an experiment cannot be designed or an observation made that the results of which would refute the theory
