Regardless my point is that there are those that suggest that because observation changes the observed that there are things that are ultimately unknowable. I reject this concept and it related philosophies.
Quantum mechanics just says that what is knowable, is probabilities; and that certainty (or near certainty) in one atomic/quantum (small) observation makes for much uncertainty in another.
Many of the issues that people have with quantum mechanics have their roots in the thought experiment explanations. Action on a small scale defies being described in terms that reflect our ability to intuit. "Wave / Particle duality" being one such thought experiment, Schroedinger's cat being another.
