Jordan Peterson Doesn't Understand Physics


I discuss Jordan Peterson's use of bad physics to shore up his bad ideas. I call this popular tactic argumentum ad quantum, the argument that one's irrational ideas just might be right because reality is contradictory at the subatomic level.

Jordan Peterson is cashing in on the irrationality of modern physics to legitimize religion, including Eastern mysticism, so here I am to break down his attempt from the perspective of Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism.
