new poll on quantum mechanics. Now there is Another Survey of Foundational Attitudes Towards Quantum Mechanics.
The physicists were surprisingly uncommitted. They would not say that either Bohr or Einstein was correct, and many refused to back a particular interpretation. There was a lot sympathy for goofy views like Bohm's and nonlocality. All this tells me that the physics community is really confused.

" [...] those who, for various reasons, doubt the legitimacy of the dictatorial scientific consensus."
The doubters not get that famous time-travelin' memo on proper methodology for goose-stepping?
