Greetings. I know absolutely nothing, beyond the basic generalities, regarding Quantum mechanics or theory, and truth be told my maths knowledge tapers off somewhere around functions and 3x3 systems of equations. I'm a student of Philosophy and the Humanities, and as such I too enjoy debating on Internet forums (most of them much like this one, except revolving around topics I admit to having a working knowledge of) And that concluding caveat brings me to my point. I've noticed that there seems to be a trend, pattern, on the Internet that everybody who wants to sound smart just starts talking out of their *** about Quantum theory, black holes, strings, or topics such as that. This happens quite often in discussions about metaphysics, especially when one party or another wants to circumvent the use of simple logic and reason in favor of the (what I call) "The universe isn't logical, so I don't have to be either" argument, which is itself fallacy, but I won't get into it here - mostly it just means the person in general watched "What the Bleep" and wants to sound like an authority on all things mysterious and ineffable. So, my question, to you all (whom I presume to actually know what you're talking about when it comes to these topics) have you noticed this trend, or is esoteric knowledge of Quantum Physics really that widespread and I'm the one behind the curve? Just curious.
