Is this normal?

I created this thread and got blocked:

https://www.physicsforums.com/threa...-hilbert-space-for-quantum-mechanics.1003389/

According to all the people who answered in that thread the Hilbert space is the only way to compute in quantum mechanics. It is like this Hilbert space is a religion.

Come on guys, I am sure you all know in Classical Mechanics you have Newton laws using forces and accelerations but you also have alternative formulations like the Euler Lagrange equations, or the Hamilton formulation.

Just in case you didn't know I copy and paste:

Hamiltonian mechanics is a mathematically sophisticated formulation of

**classical mechanics**. Historically, it contributed to the

**formulation**of statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics. Hamiltonian mechanics was first formulated by William Rowan Hamilton in 1833, starting from Lagrangian mechanics,

**a previous reformulation of classical mechanics introduced by Joseph Louis Lagrange in 1788. Like Lagrangian mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics is equivalent to Newton's laws of motion in the framework of classical mechanics.**

So it is possible to have several mathematical formulations of the very same discipline, that means my question was more than appropiate, or in other words, blocking that thread was innapropiate from my point of view.

Continue attacking people that makes proper questions and probably you will end up here alone.
