It's never a bad time to re-read Dennis Overbye's 2006 essay in the NY Times: "Far Out, Man.But is it Quantum Physics?"

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/14/science/14essa.html

My selection for what to take away with you:

But one of the most valuable aspects of science, he said, is precisely the way it resists that temptation to find the answer we want. That is the test that quantum mysticism flunks, and on some level we all flunk.

Not only do I know they're incorrectly using the terminology but it's the terminology of my field. I know it's proper usage and desperately want to explain it to them. I never bother though as my experience suggests they're not actually concerned and won't believe me anyways. Very frustrating though. I get it.


QM is is the biggest bullshit wankerery evah-but it is excellent science. :) :thumbup: :lol: :lol:

This is the latest from them. I love the way they arbitrarily use the names of stars/galaxies etc from where their supposed alien entities originate, without the faintest knowledge of cosmology (I suppose they sound mysterious....wooo woooo wooooo)

But what really pisses me off is that when their prophecies/rapture/whatever doesn't eventuate, then they just change the date. I know I know I know, they all do it....

Welcome aboard.

I had to quote this bit:
"finally, a study that backs up everything I have always said about confirmation bias!"


I assume Neil DeGrasse and not Mike? :grin:
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

I know it shouldn't, but it still amazes me when I see someone has read something like that and not immediately recognized what mind-numbing bullshit it is! :crazy:

While reading it I quickly formed a dilemma; either this person is just fucking nuts, or we are going to get to the bit where they are going to ask the dupes reading this drivel for MONEY (not discounting the fact that the two possibilities aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.)

And there it was at the end: "To book a Healing or Pychic Session..." (ooh a psychic that can't spell "psychic") I wonder how much those cost. :roll:

Ah, whatever happened to the Age of Aquarius...?! 'Twas supposed to be the dawning of global peace and hippy love. It dawned during the Vietnam War... since which we've had the Falklands War, the Gulf War, 9/11, the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War, the Syrian civil war (ongoing), and countless other conflicts (past and ongoing) in central Africa, drug wars, wars on terror, etc, etc, etc....

<Sigh!>

Have to be careful with that, though. I nearly got in a fight with a guy in a pub over it one day.

I have a colleague who uses it a lot, I just tell her to replace the word "energy" with "potential work" and see if her sentence still makes sense. Dizzy twat :nono:
