Quantum Mechanics - is it flawed proof

Theroies with problems By Kieth Mayes

The Big Bang, Quantum Mechanics, Relativity, Time, Light Speed, Gravity, Electromagnetism, all have their theories that attempt to explain why these things are the way they are. These theories form part of our understanding of the fundamental laws of the universe, but are of course unable to provide all the answers we seek.

All theories have problems in that they cannot be proven to be absolutely correct, they do not necessarily accurately describe the way things really are. They are constructed as a working model that is a useful aid to our understanding, of observed phenomenon and as a method of predicting future outcomes. When a theory is found to be wrong, it is either discarded, or as is more generally the case, modified, until it again appears to match the observations. A theory, no matter how well it appears to accurately describe any phenomenon, is provisional, it can never be proven to be completly correct, but it may be proven wrong. It will therefore always be impossible to claim a final theoretical solution to anything.

"As being is to becoming, so is truth to belief. If then, Socrates, amid the many opinions about the gods and the generation of the universe, we are not able to give notions which are altogether and in every respect exact and consistent with one another, do not be surprised. Enough if we deduce probabilities as likely as any others; for we must remember that I who am the speaker and you who are the judges are only mortal men". (Plato)

"Although the universe is under no obligation to make sense, students in pursuit of the Ph.D. are". (Robert P. Kirshner)

Many people today seem to believe that just about everything in physics and cosmology is pretty much wrapped up, with just a few loose ends to tidy up. Far from it, the deeper I delve into theories the more I discover how much is not understood, it has often surprised me.

We need to be very careful in drawing any conclusions from the results of these experiments. All we can say with any confidence is that if we set up the apparatus in a certain way it will produce a certain result. How we interpret those results, the meanings that we attach to them, is nothing more than our way of attempting to make sense of them, and need have no relationship at all to the actual reality of the situation. To imagine that a probability wave passes through both slits in the double slit experiment helps us to understand what may be happening, but it is in fact nothing more than proposing an idea that meets the criteria of what has been observed; there may be no such thing as a probability wave. It may be the case that we are completely missing some fundamental property of particles, a property that as yet remains undetected by our equipment and experiments. There may be things going on that we are completely unaware of.

What quantum mechanics tell us is that nothing is real and that we cannot say anything about what things are doing when we are not looking at them. In the world of quantum mechanics, the laws of physics that are familiar from the everyday world no longer work. Instead, events are governed by probabilities. Einstein was so disgusted by the whole notion that he made his famous remark, "Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory produces a good deal but hardly brings us closer to the secrets of the Old One. I am at all events convinced that He does not play dice".

This stuff is beyond my knowledge base but as I understand the question is 'can mathematics or equations prove anything beyond a shadow of a doubt or is it also just a theory'. Is it man's imput gets answer man wants?

I have to comment here!

I am a mother of 5 and a grandmother of 5, I have raised one grand daughter all her life and she is in the 6th grade near Atlanta GA. I don’t blame the teachers although a lot of them don’t seem to mind blaming us!
For the past year or so I have been trying to figure out what in the world was going wrong with my grand daughter and school. She has been a gifted student since 1st grade. The teachers are not the only ones who are “robots,” but the children….. all of these children. It’s not just Georgia either it’s our entire nation of children and educators. School Reform was deliberately designed to set them up for the workforce and nothing else! People either know, don’t know, or don’t want to know what this is all about.
Judy B. Codding, President and Chief Executive Officer of “America's Choice,” along with Dr. D.L. Cuddy, Mark Tucker, Michael Lerner, Hillary Clinton, Hilda Taba, Scot Nearing, Judge John Hylan, Ralph Tyler, The Carnegie Corporation, “ Rockefeller,” Dr. Abraham Flexner, Marx, Stalin, H. Rowan Gaither, Norman Dodd, oh and we don't want to forget John Dewey. I imagine most of you have heard or studied something about his Cosmopolitanism ways but did you know he was founder of the University of Chicago Laboratory School? They still praises him today! Isn’t that the school our President and First Lady sent their children too? If you put all these names plus many more in a pot and stir them up you get what we have today, the much awaited school reform that has been planned for our nation for many years.
The more I researched the more things fell into place. A lot of people knew, Hillary Clinton knew! Yes , that’s right, she knew! Our President and our first Lady and “their” staff has and still has close ties as well. Not everyone realized it since it has been so subtly brought upon us. That's how the strategy works, slow and subtle. The No Child Left Behind Act fit right in. The United Nations Convention on The Rights of The Child Treaty or UNCRC has not even been ratified yet but it’s expected too and the President and staff are working their way toward just that. Every country but Somalia and the US have Ratified and he publicly announced that America was an embarrassment for not ratifying yet. Have any of you read the UN Treaty? Have you read the CRC? I hope you read it carefully if you did. After 20 years of being in place it is proving not to be all that it claimed it would for what sounded like the “good” for the child in the UK that’s for sure. Officers of the Courts in our Judicial System have been quoting International citations for quite sometime in court and due process of law? Our Constitution is still in place! The STW program plan is not how it seems. Our children are being used and are being led to believe that they can reach their goals if they try hard enough. Eventually they won't get anywhere! Teachers are being taught to teach these children the wrong way and that is what is happening in our schools and to our children and grandchildren. No, I don’t blame the teachers or the parents but I place a lot of blame on our Government Officials who are suppose to be looking out for “Everyone’s” best interest. Perhaps they are being used as well?

Oh it’s going to take a “Village ,” alright, it’s going to take much more than a village to straighten out the damage that’s already been done.

Dear Anonymous, have you read the Jan. 14, 2010 entry about education in America? You have to scroll down to the second part, titled: THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF PUBLIC EDUCATION
