I watched the latest episode of the Sopranos tonight, and in it, an old man described one of the primary foundations of quantum physics, that is, that we are all part of the same piece of matter. I have never heard quantum physics discussed so openly on such a popular tv show and for it to have such an impact on a series main character as it did for Tony.
I feel that quantum physics is very cutting edge and relate it somewhat to how we used to fervently believe that the world was flat. The break throughs that will be gained through this field are mind numbing to say the least, and are essential for our progress as a species.
On the other end of the spectrum, their was a preast in the same episode who preached about how evolution is a sin, and that the world was created just 6,000 years ago. Though this was somewhat of a caricature, it does seem to pervade the Christian mainstream and needs to stop.
It is retarding our country and pushing us in a direction that we can't afford to continue.
Quantum physics may be hypothetical, but the fact that evolution did not occur is simply false.
