3 years ago when I lived in Jordan I met a Palestinian who believed that he had unified gravity with quantum mechanics. I knew enough about physics to know that that was a very hard thing to do but I didn't have the knowledge of course to tell if he was right. He certainly knew a lot about physics. I just looked up some experiments and some phenomena on wiki and asked him about them and he knew how all of the experiments were done and he had explanations for all of the bizarre phenomena that I had never heard of. I also knew another particle physicist from Saudi and I wanted the two to get together so that I could find out if the Palestinian was really on to something, I could never arrange that mostly because my desire to find out if he was as smart as he said he was, was not strong enough. Anyway, he wrote a 7 page paper about how he thought that this flight: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_France_Flight_447 had gone through a quantum tunnel. The wiki article cites the cause of the crash as follows: I of course didn't have the requisite knowledge to evaluate the paper but even with a common sense ability to understand argument I could tell that he didn't cite any facts about the airplane or the weather. It was pretty much just an assertion that the plane went through a quantum tunnel, then he listed an equation which I did not understand and that was it. I also remember that he thought particles going through a quantum tunnel could travel faster than the speed of light. My question here is do you think the guy was full of bs or not?
