See, my quasi-scientific observations show that the two fallacious tactics that are by far the most frequently used by the pseudo-scientific types to "pseudo-debunk" science are:

- The Science Has Been Wrong Before argument
and
- The Appeal To Ignorance argument

There are some others, like Red Herring, Tu Quoque, Circular Logic, etc.

So here's a scientific inquiry for y'all. Why are pseudo-scientific crackpots so worked up about science, why does it bug them so much? Why are they so driven to debunk it?
