    Well, what survived throughout the history of QM is that we don't
    understand how certain probabilites and statistics come about. But
    this doesn't mean that they are a result of indeterministic or
    random processes.

    Nature seems to be hard to understand and hard to observe at
    small enough scales. QM gives the answer, like all religions, to the
    momentary unexplainable.
