How does pseudoscience narrow down your observation?

Pseudoscience (such as the stupid logic and science making books like প্যারাডক্সিক্যাল সাজিদ, UFO things, quranic/biblical/mythical/hindu science etc.) gets rid of you and cannibalize your commonsense usually because of your lack of understanding the difference between ‘A View’ and ‘A Claim’. Before completing a large scale observation (or a view) it comes up with ‘A Claim’ that narrows down your rest of the observations and makes you more selective in your observation such a way that you cannot see further ahead.

 

We can take a look on a flowchart to understand the way pseudoscience makes us selective and also narrows down our observation.  

 

 

It is very relevant to mention a quote from Carl Sagan’s famous book 
The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark‘.

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.
