RE: What is a pseudoscience?
What hypothesis and theory??

There are many topics brought out by one person and that one person in that book specifically. That's largely a reference highlighting book talking a tiny bit about a topic and showing references to elaborate studies and other books on the topic because it was written for a general public of lot major science backgrounds.

But what theory is psudeosciemce? Meme theory? Yeah that one kinda is as its just Signs and other cultural elements that already are more detailed I'm definition.

Not an example: books that use science and scientific ideas and scientific explanations to discuss certain topics (like the god delusion. Dawkins doesn't claim in that book to have scientifically disproven a god, but offers scientific explanations for things associated with a god and/or god belief. You're straw manning Dawkins)

There is no proof of any science in Richard Dawkins' God delusion.

There are scientific facts in that book. Are you simply too blinded by hate to see them? Consider

Because the God delusion isn't a science book. It is a book that presents an arguement based on rational thought and observation and tackles on god claims and arguments using philosophical arguments to debunk the various ways people defend their faith.

Wow, Carusmm. Do you have a license to have all these red herrings in your boat?

I'm thinking that carusmm has more dead brain cells in his boat than red herrings.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

I'd like to state a correction to my thesis: A pseudoscience is a theory for which there is no proof and not likely to be.

What definition of "theory" are you using?
