Sorry had too mmuch to drink and was annoyed by some teling me that qed is scientific fact andd not a useful mathemmatical tool to give useful answers fopr something you dont understand.

Drink and clear thinking don't mix. QED is scientific fact, maths has always been an integral part of science.

We might think we understand Newton's laws of motion just because we can draw pretty pictures of billiard balls, but without the maths we can't predict what will happen and when. It gets complex when there are lots of billiard balls in 3d and they don't behave as in classical dynamics.

probability is a mathematical workaound for something you dont understand,

That's not true. One of the biggest pitfalls in probability is not understanding the system you are trying to work with.

Probability is a very scientific and well proven tool. If we want to study the behaviour of traffic at a complex interchange, we could try to model the behaviour of individual cars, start time, acceleration, stopping for a newspaper, etc. However, if we make sufficient observations we can use probability to make very accurate predictions of traffic flow, but we don't need to know the colour, make and model of every individual car.

QM is very successful at predicting the behaviour of atoms and molecules. Currently, no one has come up with an alternative that gives the same degree of accuracy.

Some of what i note has recently be confirmed on some atom basher a recently. Ie photons can recombine producing higher energy atoms.

I think if you go to the original research you'll find it doesn't say what you think.

Under normal circumstances photons don't join together to form atoms.

The experiment you are thinking of was performed at close to 0 K and showed some interesting interactions between molecules and photons.

I'm quite sure that future experiments will teach us a great deal about the nature of particles. I'm particularly interested in what is being done with weak interactions, these experiments are beginning to show significant results, some early ones even confirm the wave nature of the photon's probability.
