Over time, non-specialists are usually able to assimilate radically new scientific ideas, even though these ideas may seem strange when they are initially introduced. Such was the case with Newtonian physics; when Newton proposed his ideas regarding motion and gravitation in the seventeenth century, they were denounced as unreasonable even by other leading physicists. Eventually, however, Newton’s ideas were generally assimilated. Such will also prove to be the case with quantum mechanics, a twentieth-century science that deals with the behavior of matter and light on the subatomic scale. Eventually, the novelty of quantum mechanics will no longer act as a bar to the comprehension of this theory by the non-specialist.

This is not a blog for expressing world views. It is a homework help forum. If you have a specific question related to a skill you must develop in a science class, we may be able to help you.
Scientific theories are not validated through discussion or debate. Validation requires observations, measurements, and mathematical analysis of data leading to generalizations in the form of mathematical equations.
The ability to explain what has happened, and predict what will happen next based on these equations, is how laws are developed and theories validated.
