wait.. that was a bit intolerant wasn't it? laughing smiley

No... I didn't say Black Holes weren't proven. I'm well aware that they have been... and have been for some time.

Entanglement - yes.. BUT... I think you may misrepresent what is 'proven'. I would ask for the same leeway you asked of me in that I may not be following you accurately.

You can say 'proven', and do so accurately but only in the sense that it's been 'measured'. But the process of 'how' is very much up in the air... as is what exactly is happening. That is: correlation is proven... not much beyond that. - JamesJM

Okay yeah they don't know what entanglement is or how it works but they can and do regularly produce and measure it in laboratory conditions.

From an article:


. [www.astronomy.com]

As far-out as the idea seems, quantum entanglement has been proven time and time again over the years. (Link: "Bell Prize goes to scientists who proved 'spooky' quantum entanglement is real" [phys.org] ) When researchers create two entangled particles and independently measure their properties, they find that the outcome of one measurement influences the observed properties of the other particle.

The photosynthesis thing I mentioned...from another article:


. [phys.org]

The future of clean green solar power may well hinge on scientists being able to unravel the mysteries of photosynthesis, the process by which green plants convert sunlight into electrochemical energy. To this end, researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC), Berkeley have recorded the first observation and characterization of a critical physical phenomenon behind photosynthesis known as quantum entanglement.

Previous experiments led by Graham Fleming, a physical chemist holding joint appointments with Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley, pointed to quantum mechanical effects as the key to the ability of green plants, through photosynthesis, to almost instantaneously transfer solar energy from molecules in light harvesting complexes to molecules in electrochemical reaction centers.

  All the Black Hole talk takes me back to that 1979 Disney flick.
