    The phrase 'not even wrong' was coined by Wolfgang Pauli , who was known for his objections to sloppy thinking.

    The phrase "not even wrong" is used to describe any argument that purports to be scientific but fails at some basic level in that it cannot be falsified. This means, usually, tested with the possibility of being rejected by experimental means and therefore, it cannot be used to make predictions about the natural world.

    Some of you are not even wrong. :eek:
