The procedure of the pseudoscientific method is:
- Make a claim.
- Test the claim by conducting an experiment.
- If the results of the experiment match the claim, then write QED.
- If the results of the experiment don't match the claim, come up with an ad hoc explanation.
Experimental control groups are bad. Why would you test something other than what you want to be true. It's a waste of everyone's time.
If you must have them to please some weirdos who think it's necessary, make sure to avoid things like placebos or blinding for your controls. It's mean to blind people.
