Is quantum mechanics pointless?

Abstract:
There exist well-known conundrums, such as measure theoretic paradoxes and problems of contact, which, within the context of classical physics, can be used to argue against the existence of points in space and space-time. I examine whether quantum mechanics provides additional reasons for supposing that there are no points in space and space-time.
