Convincing New Age Loons That There Is a Real World
A Photon in the Darkness and Scott Aaronson have discussions of the Nitwit Interpretation of quantum mechanics: the idea that our minds create reality. There is a simple way to convince the New Agers otherwise. Many of them are anti-nuclear. Since radioactive decay is a matter of quantum mechanics, just ask them if they can stop nuclear waste from being radioactive by turning the Geiger counter off.
