String theory is definitely correct. It's not a "speculative" or "controversial" theory.
You cannot use popular level science to determine if someone understands science at an academic level. And you most certainly cannot check that someone knows more than you by first checking that they agree with your dumbed down and plain wrong understanding of the world. They don't!
You are aware that there are academics who don't even accept that there are infinitely many integers (look up ultrafinitists). Academics take all sorts of esoteric opinions on matters as an exercise in intellectual curiosity that they don't discuss in public, lest the public get the wrong idea.
I couldn't even begin to describe on this board the sorts of work I do some days in my job. I didn't do 12 years of school and 8 years of University just because I didn't have the Khan Institute on Youtube when I was a kid. I did that because it actually takes that long to get to the frontiers of science these days.
The poster said that they were PDEs. They don't seem to be PDEs to me. How are you supposed to "test" him if you don't know the material yourself?

Sorry, science has proven souls exist:
Can anyone answer my question in this thread a few pages back?
Since when is one Dr weighing a dying a patient proof?
Do you know how many changes a dying persons body goes through?
There are any number of reasons for a body losing weight at the time of death.

has anyone come up with anything truly ground breaking in therrectical physics or are you still trying to prove or disprove or add on to Einstein's orignal work. I am under the assumption that string therory is just an extension of Einstein's work

Welcome to the board, nerd.
You sir, for that comment, are crowned the genius of this thread !

Ouch! He even caught SkepticOverlord off guard.
He's a theoretical physicist. The theory is most definitely correct,
You see, this highlights the profundity of the problem here. He's toying with everyone and having a jolly good time. His answer to the question about the double slit experiment was also correct, but only in a way that would not be recognizable to people here.
He's demonstrated to my satisfaction that he has a knowledge of string theory equivalent to at least the level of a highly motivated undergraduate or graduate student. His evasive and cocky answers lead me to believe he is more than that. But the jury is still out on that one, so to speak.
He could be a scanner for sure. But he's not unintelligent and clearly suffers from colds quite often.
