Most of the questions here are about pseudoscience, such as homeopathy and anti-vaccination. Are other forms of fringe theories, such as Gavin Menzies' 1421 on-topic?

1 Answer 1


I think so. In my opinion, all crackpot theories are on-topic. I'm sure at least some people would like to refute all the 911 truthers' theory and that falls under the pseudohistory umbrella.

  • I agree, those questions can be answered objectively, and they would fit pretty well onto this site.

    I agree too - pseudo-history, conspiracy theories and such are quite central to skepticism.
