You know, the letter M is where they are now regarding that theory. Funny, that theory, with its 11 dimensions, is not falsifyable; dimension 8 or so simply is not available to be falsified.
... but it is still treated as a theory, and scientific.
Dgray ... I'm sorry to hear you so tired of statements. But, hey, look at the bright side. You woke up on the right side of the turf today, and can actually feel tired!!
Possible Darwin Central ping.
String theory _is_ falsifiable. It makes certain statements about the Universe which are disprovable -- in particular about Calabi-Yau shapes. There's a great account in Brian Greene's book on string theory about one such early test.
Saying it's not falsifiable means that either:
a) You don't know what you're talking about, in which case you shouldn't be blathering about this, or
b) You're deliberately lying to us, in which case God will boil you in magma for a billion years.
