If I came up with a theory that had predictions 100 times larger or smaller than experimental observation my theory would labelled rubbish by scientists.The quantum mechanical calcualtion of vacuum energy is 120 zeros at odds with experimental observation ( casimir effect).Why aren't people labelling quantum mechanics as rubbish?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
