comment Why should any physicist know, to some degree, experimental physics?
As far as I know, it is controversial, in the best case, if the Michelson-Morley experiment influenced Einstein (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelson%E2%80%93Morley_experiment )

comment About Quantum Mechanics
@anna v: Well, "in my book" is about an opinion, not about a fact. On the other hand, the race to close the loopholes experimentally is feverish, the relevant articles are published in the best journals, so maybe this issue is not so clear-cut. My take is influenced by the results of my work, e.g., download.springer.com/static/pdf/480/… (published in Eur. Phys. J. C): spinor electrodynamics is local and Lorentz-invariant, but can be embedded into a quantum field theory.

comment About Quantum Mechanics
@anna v: May I note that my wording "have not been ruled out experimentally so far" seems at least somewhat different from yours "there is no experimental evidence". I stand by my wording.
