What every layperson should know about string theory

Let’s Get Real Regarding String Theory

The most important thing to know about String Theory is that even after about 40 years of hype it has not provided us with even ONE unique, testable and un-fudgeable scientific prediction.

If it cannot make unique scientific predictions, it is not testable. And if it is not testable, it is not science.

Sure, it is worth pursuing as speculation that might or might not lead anywhere. But please stop the hype!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
