So, I recently read 'The Quantum Universe: Everything that can happen does happen' by Professors Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw.

Truthfully, I took three things from this amazing explanation of Quantum Physics:

  1. My brain hurts.
  2. A vague understanding of how Quantum Physics works. I now feel more equipped than I was before to understand our universe and the wonders it contains.
  3. THIS QUOTE, which I honestly believe is as perfect a definition for scientific theory as opposed to religion/fantasy and creationist nonsense as one could ever imagine; I think it is a piece of utterly beautiful literature:

"Any theory that is not amenable to falsification is not a scientific theory - indeed one might go so far to say it has no reliable information content at all. The reliance on falsification is why scientific theories are different from matters of opinion."

Such eloquence of language is rare to find, and a joy when it is found.
