er- the whole point of Harry Potter was that 'muggles' made up the whole 'evil' deal about wizards because they saw them on a broom a few times, in their black robes. It says so in 'Quidditch through the ages'. So no, that`s not a plot hole at all, sorry.
Also I hate to break it to you, but wizards don`t exist just in England. And science is taught in schools, which was my point. Well yes, I understand but majority do study about science but I was wondering how wizards survive with zero knowledge of that stuff.
Wait you`re an education student? If you`re a student doesn`t it imply you`re getting an education anyway...

Qudditch was invented in medieval England. The bible, which had been around for MUCH longer, has the passage 'You shall not suffer a witch to live'.
So yes, plothole.

No, but we've only seen how the English system works.
And science is taught in schools, which was my point. Well yes, I understand but majority do study about science but I was wondering how wizards survive with zero knowledge of that stuff.
...The same way that people who don't have an education in real life survive, which is my point the whole time
Do you really not know what an education student is? I'm studying education.
I think the way it generally works is that magic is considered to be a force utterly removed from or directly opposed to the laws of nature. By working magic, a wizard circumvents the laws of physics, and thus would only need to concern themselves with the laws governing magic.
However, nothing is fixed in speculative fiction. I have encountered settings where the magic is itself a fundamental force of nature, interacting with matter and energy and governed by its own scientific laws. I've also seen wizards for whom magic and science were utterly indistinguishable. And I've seen wizards who, though recognizing magic and science as fairly distinct forces, were nevertheless proficient in both.
Anyway, such speculation is really only necessary if you intend to write some fantasy yourself. Like I said, nothing is fixed in speculative fiction, so when you read about wizards of varying degrees of scientific literacy, understand that there is no objective standard to judge them against. They may simply be ignorant as a product of their culture (for the pseudo-Medieval variety), or such knowledge could be completely superfluous to them.
