Five years from now I am going to remember the differences between science and pseudoscience. More specifically, I am going to remember how to determine whether or not something is pseudoscience or an actual science. There are always people trying to scam you, and I don't want to be one of their victims. It is important to be able to tell the differences between the two because science can actually provide help, but pseudoscience generally just makes the situation worse.
For instance, people who write self help books are somewhat hypocritical. The term self-help means helping yourself without the help of others. It strikes me as odd that they are writing a self-help book, even though the goal is to help the reader. This doesn't see like it is actually about self-help, or helping people at all. It is only a ploy to gain money.
They don't care what so ever about helping people at all, so they claim to have proof and facts. People are desperate, so they turn to pseudoscience, which has "solid" proof, instead of actual science that only suggests. No one wants to get scammed or fall victim of pseudoscience, but they do because nothing stops them from stating that they have facts.
