# Evolution and Quantum Mechanics

Some people think that Quantum physics can explain evolution. The fact is that it cannot by definition. Click here to read more on Quantum Mechanics via Wikipedia.

**Quantum mechanics** differs significantly from classical mechanics. Quantum physics takes place when the scale of observations becomes comparable to the atomic and sub-atomic scale, the so-called quantum realm.

**Classic mechanics** takes place in the world and scale that we live.

Wikipeia explains: “Many macroscopic properties of systems can only be fully understood and explained with the use of quantum mechanics. Phenomena such as superconductivity, the properties of materials such as semiconductors and nuclear and chemical reaction mechanisms observed as macroscopic behavior, cannot be explained using classical mechanics.”

**Quantum mechanics**, also known as **quantum physics** or **quantum theory**, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interaction of matter and energy. Quantum mechanics describes the time evolution of physical systems via a mathematical structure called the wave function. The wave function encapsulates the probability that the system is to be found in a given state at a given time. Quantum mechanics also allows one to calculate the effect on the system of making measurements of properties of the system by defining the effect of those measurements on the wave function. This leads to the well-known uncertainty principle as well as the enduring debate over the role of the experimenter, epitomised in the Schrödinger’s Cat thought experiment.
