Eleanor,

It's really rather simple. How many legitimate sciences are
conducted 95% or better by part-time, weekend hobbyists and
enthusiasts who simply appoint themselves as 'experts', as
opposed to people professionally trained and educated?

There is not a single real physical or social science out there
which has no budget, and no cadre of professionals to carry out
the research and provide peer review.
