Re: III. What There Is - "Sense and Goodness Without God"
The measurement problem and misunderstanding of quantum uncertainty are the things that make Deepak famous, allowing him to dribble out pseudoscience with the same language you're using. There's nothing here ant. You can insult me for using google scholar to learn about these things, but that shows your own foolishness. Why don't you research them? Why take the false position? Why not educate yourself? Figure out the truth here. What is the measurement problem? How did it originate? Is there modern science that re-examines the problem? There are answers to all these questions, and you insult me for digging for the answers? What's really going on here is you want to be right without doing any homework.
Here's a start. Daisy chain by scanning down to the references and googling them. http://arxiv.org/ftp/quant-ph/papers/0509/0509042.pdfhttp://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Quantum_collapse
From rationalwiki: "New Agers usually believe this interpretation, and may not even be aware that it is not the scientific consensus. The idea that consciousness causes collapse is one basis for quantum woo and quantum healing, which may both be summarized as "the universe does that which conscious minds expect it to."
Ok Deepak. As conscious agents, our role in determining the future is massive. But not because of quantum woo. Quantum collapse as a photon hits the eye doesn't mean our consciousness induced the effect magically. Everywhere we've ever searched, we've found naturalistic answers, but you still fall back on the veiled argument from ignorance that supernaturalism hides behind the mystery of quantum collapse. Or is it consciousness? Or the combination of the two? Where are you hiding ant?
