Falsifiability of scientific theory  
I was surprised today that very few people understand what falsifiability means and how to apply that useful evaluation tool.

Of course I knew pretty well, that an average person has no idea about what Popper's criteria of falsifiability is.
But most of my online friends do not understand what "Falsifiability" means either.

It is a pity, because Falsifiability criteria - is a very powerful tool that allows to quickly separate potentially useful theories from pseudo-scientific scam.

Hopefully my friends understand better what testability is (the meaning of "testability" and "falsifiability" overlaps a lot).
