Because Dr. Laughlin has quoted Pauli and said that people who abuse ToE are "Not even wrong."
I think you misunderstood Laughlin’s quote (which I posted earlier in this thread). He wrote:
“Evolution by natural selection, for instance, which Charles Darwin originally conceived as a great theory, has lately come to function more as an antitheory, called upon to cover up embarrassing experimental shortcomings and legitimize findings that are at best questionable and at worst not even wrong.”
He was referring to “experimental shortcomings” that “are at best questionable and at worst not even wrong.”
He was not saying that the ToE is “not even wrong.”
When he uses the expression “not even wrong,” he does not mean “right.” He means “worse than wrong,” i.e., “meaningless.”
