If the microscopic world is not deterministic, then naturally the macroscopic world should also be not deterministic because it is based on the microscopic world. The problem is that the macroscopic world is deterministic; the evidence of this is that a lot of our technology and calculations assume that the world is deterministic. For example, the start and the end of the moon eclipse tonight is predicted very accurately. Such accuracy couldn't be obtained if the planets and the sun move in a non deterministic way.

I have thought about this issue and read some links from google and I came out with this conclusion:

The macroscopic world is indeed non deterministic and what we calculate is nothing more than the most probable value; however, for macroscopic objects the probability of the other outcomes is negligible.

Is this conclusion true?

Thanks for your replies
