Suckjoon Jun,

I am not sure what you are "in reply" to when you mention "Erwin Schrodinger."

I do not quote him in my comment or links in my comment.

Were you referring to my comment which has a link to "The Uncertain Gene?"

That link quotes a couple of physicists (Löwdin, Wolfe) who discuss DNA mutation via quantum tunneling.

You can look it up in Wikipedia "Quantum tunneling", which also discusses the issue I raised (I add that since you mentioned Wikipedia).

Quantum tunneling is very much a reality in quantum physics and quite valid to this very day.
