Cranioproctosis is an unfortunate condition suffered by many in the pseudoscience movement. Symptoms include:

  • Asserting that science is "closed-minded" because it does not accept Revealed Truth (which of course is open to everything other than Revealed Truth not being actually True).
  • Use of random science words such as "quantum" to assert that completely unrelated research somehow supports pseudoscience.
  • Anatomical dyslexia (i.e. inability to tell arse from elbow).

And of course the canonical symptom:

  • Having your head stuck firmly up your arse.
