  • New Hypotheses and Fringe Ideas
    Those ideas and hypotheses considered outside of today's mainstream science for various reasons. This might include insufficient technology or focus for proper study or merely being contrary to existing conclusions & accepted understandings. This forum distinguishes itself from Pseudoscience through the expectation that posters will provide requisite empirical evidence, supporting theory, and include mathematics and/or citations to legitimate literature to support their proposals.
