“The part about just observing a experiment could change the outcome of a science experiment is just plain stupid.”
If you have a particle whirrling around space, and you take a photograph which defines that particle’s location at that very instant, you will be unable to know its velocity (or momentum).
If you have a particle whirrling around space, and you know its velocity, there is no way to know where it was at a particular time. Think of a sine graph, and a particle moving along it. You know that its velocity is maintained as it goes along the graph but being offered only the velocity gives you no ability to find the location of the particle at a given time.
Look up the Heisenburg Uncertainty Principle.
Also, the science experiments were all justified. There has been plenty of time since their publications in 2002 and 2007 for scientists to rebut these hypothesis. To just call “BS” because something doesn’t sound right is…well lets look at the past. Man proposes that the earth is not the center of the universe, and is thrown in jail. There are tons more examples but I think this cliche does the trick.
Now personally, I disagree that we can associate quantum mechanics with physical reality (on a percievable scale). However, I dont just claim “…doesnt look right, I call BS!”

I felt I was reading a fictional short story about nothing and it somehow was a Seinfeld script. It didn’t make my head explode but it did affirm my thought that people with degrees and a large vocabulary are full of themselves and somehow have to justify to everyone else that they didn’t waste all their college money on beer. The part about just observing a experiment could change the outcome of a science experiment is just plain stupid. Any decent scientist would know to repeat the test multiple times and find out what force is causing it to deviate from its original course. Hell, even the way the air molecules in the chamber are at that time could be the reason why, not just because someone observed it. That article was a load of total BS if you ask me.

Yes, those guys Heisenburg and Schrödinger were real idiots.
