No one questions the computational accuracy of quantum mechanics. What's at issue is whether it is the only model that can do that. There is evidence from fringe science that electromagnetism can influence gravity, yet mainstream theories seem unable to offer a clue why this happens. Although quantum mechanics does well what it does, it does not tell us how to develop the new technologies we need today such as anti-gravity and energy from the vacuum. Quantum theory is a great computational theory but it's explanatory power is weak. That's why we have things like the Copenhagen and many worlds interpretations of what it all means. People have built such philosophical frameworks around the theory to make it meaningful. No one framework is required by the theory, and this in itself is an indication that the theory is limited.
