When scientific terms are used wrongly to give legitimacy to old superstitions,pseudoscience is born. Many times,the insistence on continuing to believe in discredited hypotheses,leads to pseudoscience in scientific studies too. Scientific temper teaches questioning and demands verification and pseudoscience cannot stand on tests of verification. Scientific temper is also useful in discerning between superstitions and useful traditional knowledge. The talk will elaborate on these issues with examples.
