disillusioned Posted May 17, 2019 Share Posted May 17, 2019 hyperholiday: You indicated in the other thread that you were interested in M-theory, and I promised to explain why I don't consider it to properly be science. I'm hoping this thread will examine that topic in some detail. Other participants are welcome, of course. The more perspectives the better. To get us started, I'd like to suggest that participants read the following article by Jim Holt. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2006/10/02/unstrung-2/amp There are a lot of salient points in the article, some of which are tangential to the topic at hand. But it does describe string theory and M-theory fairly well in layman's terms, which is why I suggest reading it first. I should say at the outset that I'm not an expert here. I know a thing or two about physics, but that's about it. I'm looking forward to this discussion. Hopefully we can all learn something. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
