I don't know if you physicist out there knows it, but the statement that observing something changes its state is having a drastic impact on the less informed populace at wide. An example, one of the most popular Quantum Physics video on youtube <Link to video not acceptable under PF rules removed> While I am by no means expert in Quantum Physics, but I like to believe my ability at reasoning is still solid. So here is the question: Did the result in Double-Slit Experiment change because of a consciousness observing it? Or is it because the measuring device/method is messing with the result? Because reason dictates it is far more likely the 2nd explanation that's causing the changed results. If that's the case, then this whole experiment is a sham, no different from someone claiming the temperature of a bucket of water got colder because they "observed" it by sticking a cold thermometer into the bucket. And all the physicists out there riding this hype-train making Quantum Physics looking like a frontier science that's defying logic is highly irresponsible.
