the absolute biggest cope in science is
>scientists are smart and high iq
one or two scientists do something smart 100 years ago and every unproductive failure scientist on the planet, millions of them, all claim credit for the one smart guy's deed without even thinking about it
but when nasa loses a mars probe because they can't do a unit conversion then suddenly the scientists stop claiming credit for other scientists' work.
you don't see bicycle mechanics going around saying their brilliant geniuses because bicycle mechanics invented the airplane, you don't see portrait artists claiming intellectual superiority because one of their own invented the telegraph, neither of those groups have the psychological need to lie about how intelligent they are, but scientists do.

Everett, superdeterminism, RQM all reducd to Copenhagen anyways; since none of these effectively remove the measurement postulate from QM, all are equally pointless for describing observations made by measuring physical systems (which is, you know, the entire purpose of physics...no big deal!), thus shut up and calculate (i.e. Copenhagen).

Both determinism and indeterminism are falsifiable.
To falsify a non deterministic theory, you construct a deterministic mathematical model/theory that you can then use to predict with 100% accuracy what is going to happen to the particle (i.e. you can predict with 100% accuracy when a proton decays or which slit the particle goes through). This would falsify non determinism.
To falsify a deterministic model, you produce a counter example that can not be predicted using that model. This would falsify the deterministic model.

As it is now, there is no deterministic model to explain quantum mechanics, but it is in principle falsifiable. Thus the scientific position is that determinism is false and the universe is not deterministic.

Science is solar guided. Like a spider building it's web, humans conduct science. You don't have just one method, though experiment or elimination is common, doing an experiment is simple. You can do science on your own, you don't need to ledge anything or provide evidence to people like you're in court. What you're looking for is results via any method that discovers them.

We can observe that our universe behaves in a way that indicates there's more matter than what we can actually see. To explain that, two major theories have emerged to explain that phenomenon: dark matter (aka hard to detect matter) and MOND (aka gravity acts differently on large scales). MOND has so far failed to account for several real world examples of galaxies while dark matter has been consistent with all real world examples so far which indicates that there really is a form of matter that exists and is hard to detect, even harder that neutrinos.

> anyway, randomness does not seem to exist anymore than it seems not to exist.
That's your opinion but actual physics indicates it either exists or hidden variables are global (i.e. the universe conspires to trick us).
>because it's impossible to test for it.
It's reasonable enough to believe it does exist.
>no they haven't.
Locally they have been debunked.

>> No.15768025

>Determinism doesn't exist locally tho, that much is proven.
no it isn't, lol. nonlocality has NOT been proven, by any bell test, or any other kind of experiment.

"One merely has to note that measuring violations of Bell's inequality, no matter how entertaining the experimental setup, cannot tell us which of the assumptions to the theorem were violated."

Dark Matter/Dark Energy is a magic number that gets trotted out whenever some behavior of the universe does not fit general relativity. Because no one has come up with a better idea than general relativity, magical matter is still an object of earnest search.

As more observed phenomenon conflict even with dark matter/dark energy handwaving, it becomes increasingly likely that general relativity is just wrong, but no one's even close to presenting a superior broadly-applicable replacement. I assume for experts it's pretty frustrating to be stuck between searching for something that almost certainly doesn't exist and trying to replace a theory that seems largely irreplaceable.

Because it has never been directly observed despite the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars, tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of man-hours, decades of attempts, god knows how much energy, all while being (allegedly) the vast majority of matter in the universe, found everywhere.

Neutrinos have been directly observed. Even a black hole has been observed more directly than dark matter despite being, by definition, impossible to directly observed.
