Quantum theory tells us, contrary to Einsteins's false beliefs, that
unmeasurable events do not exist. The electron or photon does not
simultaneously have fixed position and momentum (that would contradict
some results of interference experiments).

Mathematics, contrary to Einstein's false beliefs, is nothing but a

Nobody can hinder you to believe in things that nobody can say, think,
identify, measure. But that is not science. It is theology or
superstition, or, in the worst case, matheology. I say "worst case"
because many naive people believe that matheology is a science run by
intelligent proponents.
