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?

It's said that "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention." Sadly most people think being outraged is the point, and the paying attention part is optional.
