I need two examples of pseudoscience that are from the current media or internet and they need to be explained why they should be considered this specific science.

First off, you’re going to need a definition of pseudoscience. “Pseudo” means “fake”: pseudoscience is not actually science. It’s something masquerading as science, claiming scientific basis or results, but not actually following the scientific method or anything like it.
On that note, here are some pseudoscientific subjects to get you started:
— Homeopathy, reflexology, and other forms of alternative medicine.
— Creationism and intelligent design. No, they are not science. They appeal to an ineffable, unobservable supernatural source; therefore, they are outside what science can test.
— Conspiracy theories. “We never landed on the moon”, “9/11 was a government plot”, etc., etc.
— Crystal healing, pyramid power, magnet therapy, etc.
— Psychic abilities of all stripes: psychokinesis, predicting the future, connecting with spirits, etc.
— Cryptozoology: Bigfoot, Nessie, etc.
— Quantum mysticism. Yes, quantum mechanics is incredibly weird. No, that does not mean that you’re psychic.
— Crop circles. They were first created as a deliberate hoax, *which has been documented!* The people who did it came forward and took credit.
— Time Cube. Just… no.
Entering these into Google News (see the last link below) should get you some results. Try the ones near the top of the list first.

Can Internet psychics can give real readings with only your date of birth?
My friend bid on a psychic auction on Listia.com and the internet psychic gave him very vague information. I think he is dumb to bid on that. Now he wants his credits back.
