Comment on The highest grade convictions throughout the centuries

Those things appear improbable, but considering that the information is transmitted (without us knowing how) thousands of miles, we should proceed with the strategy of Sherlock Holmes: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." There is no option to exclude all the improbable things this time.

A direct connection between the 2 things (as you speculated) is not impossible, but of all the improbable things remaining, its much more improbable than the butterfly effect. Add to your speculation the requirement of violating heisenberg uncertainty because its direct communication instead of statistical through the butterfly effect, and the possibilities are down to these 2: (1) Heisenberg Uncertainty is wrong, and/or (2)  has learned to use the butterfly effect.

Either way, quantum physics is being used on the scale of thousands of miles, and to answer the question of this thread, that is what about science has been proven but takes a long time for people to accept.
