    Just to flip this, do you have any sources that horseshoe theory is a real thing? That’s the funny thing about language, someone put Theory in the name and now people think it’s a real thing.

    To save you the trouble, it hasn’t held up under academic study. Plenty of info on Wikipedia about it.

      I don’t doubt you; do you have a source that says it hasn’t stood up to academic study?

      I don’t believe in horseshoe theory, I don’t even know what it is. I can’t give you a source that it’s real.

      My original comment was more a joke than anything.

      It doesn’t deserve even that much effort

      Just the basic definition of the two extremes tells you enough to know there is no similarity, and no serious thought behind the “theory”.
