It depends on the context - sometimes the more archaic version might be more appropriate, sometimes perhaps not.

comment What do you call an event that happens without a cause?
@Izkata I was thinking of the probabilistic nature of QM rather than virtual particles in particular. There's no dispute that the predictions of the theory agree with our observations, as you point out, but I think it's a bit of a jump from there to assert that the universe actually operates randomly.

comment What do you call an event that happens without a cause?
God has sometimes been equated with the idea of a 'first cause' - others deny that such a thing is possible. As for QM - surely that depends whether you view it as a literal description of physics, rather than a mathematical model?

comment Word to describe “when someone describes something in too much detail”
I did not equate the two - I merely expressed my preferences. Any comment on whether this actually answers the question?
