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.
