  How can we prove that 1 electron was in 2 places at one time. Theoretically, how could we ever prove this? How would we distinguish between one electron being destoryed and 2 "partial" electrons being created with different properties than the first?

How can we ever prove such a case?

Closed as per community consensus as the post is meaningless and popular science, therefore off-topic for PO.

Voting to close as popular-science and meaningless.
