The fields listed there are not sciences. Their proponents attempt to use mathematics to give them the appearance of rigor, but nothing they have asserted has been proven.

It covers interesting and related content. We have several soft and non "science" forums.

Isn't science about applying the scientific method? Does it matter what branch it is, if correct understandings and interpretations of phenomena lead to correct predictions then one should be in business for science.

And it's incredible how predictable some human behavior is.

Are you objecting to the term "social sciences"? I don't see what your post has to do with "Forum Feedback".

Here is what the Social Sciences cover

The social sciences comprise academic disciplines concerned with the study of the social life of human groups and individuals including anthropology, communication studies, criminology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, social studies, and sociology.[1]
