OK, let's try to narrow it down.


Which scientific principle, specifically, are you referring to? (Schrodinger's Cat isn't a scientific principle).


If you could identify which scientific principle it is that you disagree with, at least we're all on the same page. And perhaps we can discuss the evidence for that principle, or illustrate how it is successfully used in technology, or how it is used to successfully make predictions.
