Did you read my post about the gallon of gas?<quoted text>
No, quantum mechanics is a physical theory that uses math as its language. It hypothesizes about the processes and describes those processes mathematically. Furthermore, the use of mathematics means that the predictions can be tested and, if need be, the theory modified if it doesn't agree with reality. And *that* is how science is and should be done.
The math helps to understand the process. But, of course, you need to understand the math (and the physics) in order for it to be helpful.
No, quantum mechanics did not create the universe, but the universe *is* described by quantum mechanics, and the processes of the early universe require the mathematics to fully understand them. Without the precision of the math, the understanding is lessened, not increased.
Why would you not make it to the station?
That is the difference between your empirical math formulas and reality. You are applying values to the overall universe you have no way of knowing the value of, and doing your calculations based upon those erroneous values. Then you work other formulas in to account for the mistakes, then more to correct those, and on and on. The next thing is you are in an infinite loop of incorrect logic.
