    why we still belive in a god

    Very true.And parents are generally those people. To answer the OP: "why we still believe in a god?" => 'because we listen to our parents. '

    why we still belive in a god

    Most people probably believe in God because their parents/society....indoctrination. Sharing a believe system can increase groupccohesion so in many societies the believe in a God can be a/the norm to be part of or accepted in the group.
  3. This is wrong, you say many things like that. Physics implies what people say about Nature via exp. evidence. You should not make assumptions regarding a model showing a property of Nature. The observer effect is the theory that simply observing a situation or phenomenon necessarily changes that phenomenon. In many science fields people observe phenomena via measuring devices....so then it's rather a measurement effect.. you can discuss if a measurement is really an observer effect since you still have to observe/interpret the measurements. Those phenomna which are observed can be anything...including a donkey.

    Death is proof that God exists

    This is the best joke I've read in a while.
  5. That's true but people say things which are wrong, regarding the observer effect. So it's imo necessary to explain it. The observer effect affect the particles on the screen (it transforms energy). Do you deny this? Why do you think an entangled particle is measured? They measure superposition, not entanglement.

    What do you think about flatearthers?

    You have imo young earth creationists and bellow them, you have the flatearthers.(or the flearthers)
  7. I don't know if this is an environmental crisis. But the loss of vegetation/trees causes soil erosion which can cause Desertification.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historic_desertification

  9. The observer effect and HUP are basically 2 constrains on how we interpret/observe/study reality/nature. The measurement effect is only when you use measuring devices...the Observer effect in physics is mostly a measurement effect. You have several kinds of observer effects: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect The Hawthorne effect (also referred to as the observer effect) is a type of reactivity in which individuals (this can be any kind off lifeform) modify an aspect of their behavior in response to their awareness of being observed. This is for example why placebo controlled clinical trials are 'invented'. Or why people often have to hide themselves and use strong lenses when they film wildlife….it's to prevent wildlife from changing its behavior because it's observed. Another: In information technology, the observer effect is the impact on the behavior of a computer process caused by the act of observing the process while it is running. In physics, the observer effect is the theory that simply observing a situation or phenomenon necessarily changes that phenomenon. This is often the result of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner. In the double slit experiment, the detectors and the screen are the instruments that alter the state of what they measure in some manner. (like transforming energy and destroying wave behavior.

    Interesting article concerning this topic: http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20180403-why-do-people-become-trolls-online-and-in-social-media "New research is revealing that trolls live inside all of us – but that there are ways to defeat them and build more cooperative digital societies."

    Is Psychology not a real science?

    Psychology is the science of behavior and mind, including conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feeling and thought.
  12. The decline of nature (cutting of trees, extinction of animals) is related to global warming and I find the most urgent environmental crisis. According to some estimates, 100 million sharks may be killed annually, mostly to feed China's demand for shark fin soup. Most sharks are predatory fish. Killing so many sharks messes up the ecosystem. Predators have an important role. The killing of all wolves in greater Yellowstone changed the natural landscape....The absence of wolves enabled ungulates to increase in population and live semi-sedentair which enabled them to eat flora (mostly close to rivers) until it's all eaten. This caused local plants and trees to be extinct or reduce in population which caused for example the beaver to be locally extinct. The same happens in oceans due to killing of sharks and in many continental places due the killing of predators. I hope I made myself clear.
  13. I fail to see the causal connection between strange objects in the sky and extraterrestrial life.
