What is the difference between philosophy and psuedo-science, in this day and age?

Sure, years ago when science was still a cult if not magic, philosophy was philosophy, but today with science and all it’s contraptions guiding our perception, what really "is" the difference between philosophy and pseudo science……….between philosophy and science fiction…….what is the philosophy of science, today, if not our being able to keep up with the very bolting horse of science that takes us into virtual "psuedo" worlds of "avatars", the very badges it seems we wear in this arena?
……..I only say this to entertain your willingness to categorize what I presented in no time and as few words at all.

Pseudo-science wears the trappings of science.

    Science is testing hypothesis.

    Philosophy is asking question, we may never know the answer to. There are similarities and differences between Science and Philosophy.

    Psuedo-science is trying to prove the supernatural. Philosophy is thinking how various things work. Psuedo-science, in my opinion, is very stupid. Philosophy; however, can not be proven or disproven, at least most of the time. So, yes, there is a considerable difference between psuedo-science and philosophy.

    In this day and age, philosophy is very technical and materialistic. For the most part it’s about engaging in debate using sound deductive arguments.

    Philosophy is not about unicorns, healing crystals and Astrology. These belong to Pseudo-science, also known as BS.

    so science and it’s contraptions guide all our perceptions you reckon?

    I feel so robotic all of a sudden, must be time for an oil change and a tune up…
