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.
