Which parts of them are nonsense (if any)? How easy or hard is the nonsense to detect? What misconceptions about quantum physics do you see being portrayed? Do they fall into the categories laid out in chapter 10 of “How to teach physics to your dog”? What “red flags” do you see that alert you to nonsense being detected, other than just things they get wrong about quantum physics. What do you look for to indicate an article is valid?
