String Theory Is Not Science


The articles on string theory should really belong in the Philosophy category - because that's what they are.

The entities postulated to exist (so-called tiny 'strings' vibrating at different frequencies and of different shape) are so small as for it to never be able to see them.

Therefore the existence of strings, if not scientifically verifiable - which seems to be the case - reduces down to a matter of faith / belief, not empirically verifiable science.

Hence, string theory is really philosophy masquerading as science is not really science at all in the standard sense; after all if it cannot be straightforwardly disproved then it is not clearly something from the realm of science to discuss and get involved with!
