Unfortunately I had not read previous debates here on quantum mechanics ontology, related metaphysics and so on.
Or else I would have directly referred you to those debates and avoid repeating here what has largely been said before.
Suffice it to say that ontological and epistemological interpretations of the different quantum mechanics theories are well there and are not disproved by "rational hard-fact" science. At that level there is hardly any "hard fact" and the notion of rational depends on your chosen interpretation. That's what I also meant with my example, which I gave with no intention to provoke such a debate, but just to show that science is far from being a hard-fact field.
That said, it's your right to think you can leave metaphysics and the spiritual out of science, or classify them as irrational, and my right to call that positivism and blind materialism.
Others also did this before, and subsequent debates were far from solved.
Other diaries will probably deal with the issue, and this is definitely not the place.
I can hardly find a post in this diary, so it's become unmanageable and that's a pity, it was originally about improving ET's presentation and clarifying agenda issues.
