    OK so I am too stupid to be allowed to ask a question. You obviously have no answer to my question, " Why are extraordinary explanations necessary?" I think the idea of many worlds is very extraordinary, Anyway, you are obviously upset and making this personal. BYE

    For example, Suppose there is a dark room that I cannot see into. I send basketballs into it. They ricochet out of the room. I will not be able to tell both the position and momentum of the objects that they ricocheted off of. That seems analogous to me firing particles in the 2-slit experiment...

    OK I typed too fast. I should have said, " Will a simpler explanation suffice. "

    Anyway, you are making this discussion personal. You really should be less defensive. All I asked was why such extraordinary ( I find Many worlds extremely extraordinary. that there are many planets in other universes with duplicates of me. That doesn't sound extraordinary to you? , I am also...

    Because a simpler explanation will suffice. We cannot help but influence our experiments. We do not need many worlds etc. Its just that we influence the results of an experiment and cannot delete that influence. Why does " many worlds" seem extraordinary to me?

    Anyway, it is obvious that I am so stupid that I should not be allowed to ask that question. BYE

    I am asking why such extraordinary explanations of QM are needed. Asking that is politics and not allowed?

    I posed my question without clarity previously. I will try to be clearer; Yes, I am questioning QM. Is it bad to try to understand it? My basic question is, is QM actually almost classical except that our influence on the results of an experiment is unavoidable. Suppose there is a dark room...

    ???? I agree. QM is not politics. What is your point? How can I learn if asking questions is not allowed? I thought that was what this site is about.

    ??? I am asking questions. BTW if I have faith in QM or not has nothing to do with the validity of my questions. Where did I say that QM was wrong? I am sure that there is an explanation as to why physicists say that QM needs extraordinary explanations. I just want to hear them. BTW please lets...

    Of course some will say that I am ignorant and have no right to ask such questions. I disagree.

    Note that I am not saying that QM is classical and that the uncertainty principle is only because it is unavoidable to influence the experiment. I am asking a question.

    So no questions about QM allowed! WOW! All I asked was why such extraordinary explanations are needed.

    So we should ignore Hawking's books? Was he lying?
