Radioactive decay has been described as a random phenomenon which may
be characterized statistically. Is this phenomenon truly random
(outside the traditional laws of cause and effect) or is it simply
described as random for now because the precise causes are as yet
unknown? Is anything known to be truly random and without cause?
