Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Ayurveda[edit]

I am wondering why only Maharishi Ayurveda is listed in this article as opposed to Ayurveda medicine in general. The Wikipedia article for Ayurveda already states that it is widely considered pseudoscientific.Sega31098 (talk) 19:35, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Ley lines[edit]

Please add Ley line, as that page already links to this one. Oskar Liljeblad (talk) 12:36, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Creationist cosmologies reference error[edit]

Just a tiny fix, the reference for Creationist cosmologies is currently "Technical Analysis in Financial Markets" - obviously a mistake. This reference is still relevant to the Finance section. I'd suggest adding the same tag as for the previous entry, "Creation science", which says "not in citation given" linking to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Verifiability - alternatively, a relevant citation could be found. I hope this is a useful suggestion. Thanks :) Refractions (talk) 05:41, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Are references really needed here?[edit]

Almost all of the topics listed here have a wiki page where evidence for that topic being pseudoscience is discussed and references are given in support of that. It seems a waste of time and effort to relist those same references here. IT seems to me that all that is needed is a quick description of the topic following the link to the page. If the wiki page says it is pseudoscience, then it gets listed here. Any arguments over if it is pseudoscience is waged on that page and not here. This article is huge because it has so many unnecessary references that are basically duplicates of what is found on the wiki pages. I propose that if a topic already has a wikipage that all references be removed here. That would also make this page easier to handle and edit. --OtisDixon (talk) 05:01, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
