Swedish Skeptics

Vetenskap och Folkbildning (VoF) is a Swedish non-profit organization set out to promote popular education about the methods of science and its results. By engaging in open debate, the organization particularly sets its task to discredit false ideas about matters that can be resolved scientifically. An important part of this education is to make clear what questions can and cannot, respectively, be resolved through scientific means. The organization tries to investigate what science-based arguments there are for â.. or against â.. controversial phenomena such as astrology, healing, homeopathy, dowsing, telepathy, UFO and so forth. The organization is open to anyone who supports its purpose. All work is conducted on a voluntary basis.

To define science and pseudoscience is not all that easy. VoF uses the following definition:

Science is the systematic search for such knowledge that is independent from any single individual, but that anyone could rediscover or verify. Pseudoscience is statements not based in science but presented in such a way that gives them the impression of being so.
