quantum field theory (QFT) is a theoretical framework that combines classical field theory, special relativity and quantum mechanics,[1]:xi but not general relativity's description of gravity.

Quantum electrodynamics is a fully relativistic theory of quantum mechanics that was invented for electromagnetism and has been extended to the strong and weak forces as well.

But there is no complete quantum theory for gravity.

nope

at best QM can be applied to GR and SR - just as maths can be applied to them

QM is 100% about probability neither GR or SR are

(how the f//k can you apply SR to QM "dixon"?)

Yes. Applying Special relativity to QM is fairly routine and as I understand it applying General Relativity to QM can be done to a pretty good approximation until it gets to extreme situations, ie it eventually goes off the rails in black holes and the start of the universe.

Yes and no.

We still do not have an overarching unifying theory yet that would tie it all together.

It might require additional terms to be added to Einstein's theorums just like he added to Newtons.
