Should we believe the Math?

 

THEORETICAL Quantum Physicist Dr. Amit Goswami admitted today that he, and his peers, have absolutely ‘no fucking idea’ what they’re doing

 

 

 

When asked how he got away with it for so long, he replied: “I found out a long time ago that everything can be proven with a mathematical equation. Now, I mean everything; from unicorns, fire-breathing dragons, God and even the G-spot. None of it is true. Me and the handful that know the truth have been riding the Quantum Physicist celebrity wave for quite some time now, but it must end – before someone gets hurt”.

The major disadvantage of falsifiability is that it is very strict in its definitions and does not take into account that many sciences are observational and descriptive.

Just goes to show why we have the fallacy of argument from authority - you can be a professor of quantum physics and still be a complete idiot.

A little learning is a dangerous thing; drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
there shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking largely sobers us again.

As a guiding principle the answer is 'yes'.

He is considered a quack. I would not take his word on this at face value. I would have to really understand the context of his words to make sense of this.

I saw no maths.

 

But I did see some poor quality English, US or British variety.

Sunshaker may have jumped the gun, but I came across this from a couple of different sources, which I cannot yet find, 

 

I have read some of his talks in the past, And believed this is something he would have come out with, And believe he would fit in well in our speculation forum.

Perhaps that's why they used him for their spoof.

To be fair, though the thought in the title (i.e. "I have no fucking clue what I am doing") occurs to me quite often. Punctuated by:"oh, why did that work. Can it do it again?"

    I believe that sentiment has become quite common among older gentlemen also,  .   .   .   .  since the advent of Viagra. ^_^
