Why the String Theory is pseudoscience
Throughout history the main block to scientific progress has always been atheists.
I don’t really understand how anyone can believe that the String Theory is science. Apparently the atheist animals that run science in modern times consider the String Theory science based off nothing more than authority, meaning they believe the String Theory is science because some authority figures have said so.
So what exactly is the String Theory? The String Theory is an attempt to reconcile Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity.
Right now you have to say that things behave a certain way in the quantum world and in another certain way in the macro-world. Meaning if you tried to apply Quantum Mechanics to the macro-world it wouldn’t work, and if you tried to apply General Relativity to the Quantum World it wouldn’t work. They each only work on their own scales. They do however make very accurate predictions on their own scale.
The String Theory is an attempt to reconcile QM and GR so you don’t have to say this works only in the Quantum World or only in the General Relativity world, you would just have one world where everything follows the same rules. In order to do this string theorists claim that matter is composed of 1-dimensional strings and that there exists many other unperceivable dimensions.
Here’s why the String Theory is pseudoscience:
The “String Theory” is pseudoscience by definition since it does not adhere to the scientific method, and cannot be reliably tested. The String Theory matches the exact precise definition of pseudoscience. The String theory is really just mathematical philosophy.
If someone claims that aliens in another un-observable dimension exist, and that they have the mathematics for it, but they cannot test out if their mathematics correlate to reality or if the un-observable dimension with unicorns actually exists, should we should consider such a hypothesis as scientific?
String theorists claim that matter is composed of very small 1-dimensional strings, that many other un-observable dimensions exist, and that they have the mathematics for it, but they cannot test out if their mathematics correlate to reality, or if the 1-dimensional strings actually exist, or if other un-observable dimensions exist, so should we consider such a hypothesis as science?
I don’t think the String theory is useless however since it is very useful for advancing mathematics so it belongs in mathematical journals. All those who do work on the “string theory” should be considered as mathematicians rather than as physicists. Even if the string theory is pseudo-scientific or even completely wrong it’s still useful for advancing mathematics. You can do lots of things in mathematics that have zero correlation to reality.
In conclusion the String Theory isn’t science or scientific regardless of what delusional atheists or string theorists tell you.
