I don't see anyone disputing that, Chownah...
A lot of people have no qualms about talking about how their experiences prove this or that etc......so why can't some of us who have a better education talk about our experiences in the realms of science....science is after all just one kind of human experience and is often way more perceptive and revealing then the average persons musings.
That's true, but only if the person really knows the subject (not to mention whether the audience would understand what he/she's talking about)... that wasn't (and won't be) the case when the QM was brought up in here. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just I didn't want anyone to continue to be misled about what the science actually says. Nothing beneficial ever comes out of that... only more delusions.
It's OK if we don't know much about certain subjects in science. We don't have to say what we think they say to try make ourselves sound more authoritative. That's just silly.
Science doesn't really need more people adding the myths to it.
I'm reminded of Feynman's (a big-time physicist) quote, it went something like this: "I think it's safe that no one really understands quantum mechanics today."
Just be honest with yourself, and with what you actually understand... that's all.
