Pseudoscience (Greek: ψευδής, pseudes, "lying, false" + Latin: scientia, "knowledge, expertness"; hence, false knowledge) is a term of disparagement applied to hypotheses and concepts that are presented in a manner appearing - to non-experts - to satisfy accepted scientific methods of a given field but that are considered by the expert disparager to either fail to satisfy or only superficially satisfy the requirements of such methods.
