Feynman's dead. Has been for 19 years.
Judging by the age of the biology research VM likes to cite, he's not that up to date on anything else. So I guess it's understandable he hasn't heard about Feynman's passing.
But Feynman's explanation of interfernce of single electron passing two slots is still valid explanation of the phenomenon as far as I know.
Moder quantum physics use very often "outdated" or "transcedent" ideas of Rennaisance scientists of "symetry" of the world. We observe "symetry" also in structure of living organisms. But biologists do not consider such "symetry" playing any role in evolution. You know darwinism is a naturalistic theory from 19 century which didn't consider such ideas as "symetry" as valid explanation of anything.
I was referring to your notion of Feynman having a discussion with someone:
|But you know, Feynmann is an expert on quantum mechanics and maybe he should more discuss his opinions with evolutionary biologists|
