what do you guys know about the string theory? don't go on wikipedia to look it up.

well if you don't know what is it then go head. i didn't want people copy and pasted stuff from that site on here to make them look smart.
Originally posted by ZahlanziI'm not so sure about that. It is not true that string theory cannot ever be tested. It can. When the new accellerator at CERN comes into action, then some corners of string theory will be testable.
string theory is just that, a theory. so far it cannot be proven and nothing it said can be experimented. it is just a pretty thing that mathematicians put in their equations to make them taste better

Originally posted by FabianFnaswell first they will have to choose from 10,11 and 26 dimensions.
My personal view is like this:
We have areas where quantum theory and relativity theory is not consistent with each other (*). I think, hope, or foresee, that string theory or quantum gravitation theory (according to Smolin) is going to explain these things (*).
Is the extra dimensions real? Are they truly spatial? Or are they needed just to make the ...[text shortened]... oreticians when they say that their theory is good enough to build knledge of the universe upon.
