In Einstein's 1935 EPR paper he thought he had found a consequence of
quantum mechanics that was a Reductio Ad Absurdum proof that it couldn't be
true. But he forgot that for such a proved to be valid you need to do more
than prove that something is ridiculous, you need to prove that it's
logically contradictory, because in the 1980s it was shown experimentally
that such ridiculous things actually happen. Quantum mechanics is
ridiculous but not logically contradictory.
