How can I comment on if this is a science or not? I do DT as a “science” for the IB and everyone disagrees with that as a science. This could be a science if only people accept it as a science, some people accept crystals as a science so why not a umbrella.
My main argument to this is that people accept all kinds of weird things as a science just because a legit amount of people accept it, there is no set thing that makes a science a science. Most people when they hear about umbrellaology laugh and think it is outrageous but just think back to when when Albert Einstein first discussed the theory of relativity people would have thought he was absolutely bonkers but years later we class him as a genius. So how is this any different, the man may yes have to do more research to prove that it is a true science and if he can get more people accepting it then no one can argue with it.
So all in all I think that umbrellaology could be a science but just needs more time time. If was real anyway 🙂
