    This is not accurate.

    Quantum Theory was discovered by Max Planck in 1900. It consists of the single hypothesis that all energy consists of integer multiples of a very small amount, now known as Planck's Constant.

    Quantum Mechanics, a development of the the implications of the original theory, proceeded from initial breakthroughs by Werner Heisenberg in 1925 and Erwin Schrodinger in 1926, and contributed to by many others in work that continues today.

    We could use professional commentary at this point, but I believe it is not too far off to say that the most fundamental feature of QM is that the behavior of a particle in motion (its "mechanics") can only be described as probable rather than than definite.

    Quantum Theory and Quantum Mechanics are as fully confirmed by experiment as a scientific hypothesis has ever been. Any so-called final theory of everything will have to incorporate the insights they provide.

    Science isn't something that you believe in, it's something you accept because it's factually true. The evidence for quantum mechanics is overwhelming. If you don't accept it, you're an idiot.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The portion of Quantum Mechanics I am familiar with is Quantum Optics.
    Within the limits of our measurement instruments, it appears to be accurate.
    That does not exclude a better fitting model from showing up later.
    Dr. Randell Mills claims to get Hydrogen to drop to a new ground state,
    and there is some validation of his claim.
    If true, it could throw parts of Quantum Mechanics on it's ear.

    Re: quantum theory ,do you agree with it ?

    It's a scientific theory like any other. It might be right, or it might be wrong. As a layman, I'm frankly never going to be able to tell the difference either way.

    As such, I don't see much of a reason to get overly worked up about it. I'll accept it as being at least casually true until something better comes along.

    Mills is a quack.

    He may well be, but the UV light is coming from somewhere.
    I was using him as an example, He has his own theory of how all
    the pieces fit together.

    l agree with you ,science and religion are two different things

    but many atheists ignore it(quantum theory) because it hurts their atheistic tendencies

    l asked it in a way taht wont hurt them
