'could' does not imply 'is'
It would do if I say: Let the f(could) = is

i know there are subtle differences. but you can find them in the same section in a thesaurus. they're synonyms
synonyms in everyday speech perhaps, but not when youre being technical

Id say it still is. It depends how you chose to interpretate his words. It also deals a lot with determenism. NO! Quantum mechanics has NOT showned that there is no determenism, with schrödingers interpretation of Quantum mechanics determenism still exist, although the defenition of a measurement is a bit troublesome...
its unnerving for physicists when we have to shun determinism

eg: the infinitely long solenoid, whats the point it can never exist :confused:
The need for the infinitely long solenoid was so we can understand that the the magnetic field would be completely confined to the interior of the solenoid so the particles would feel no force from the field. Experimentally we obviously can't make an infinitely long solenoid but we can make one that is long enough to understand the theory,

do you think that's what god wanted you to do and caused the synapses in your brain to converge to that train of thought?
