i reject the copenhagen interpretion. it is given far more credence than is merited, being little more than a kludgy placeholder theory until we figure out what is actually happening.

I would agree that it doesn't "feel" like it can possibly be the right theory and yet the results of using it work so well. Its intepretation of the wave function provides very compelling predictions of measurements. Still some consequences that arise from the random aspects of the theory are unsettling, even though they are experimentally verifiable.
