Now a friend writes to say that she has made it to Slashdot, which is apparently a cachet:
What we have here in the foundation of physics is a plain failure of the scientific method. All these wrong predictions should have taught physicists that just because they can write down equations for something does not mean this math is a scientifically promising hypothesis. String theory, supersymmetry, multiverses. There’s math for it, alright. Pretty math, even. But that doesn’t mean this math describes reality. Physicists need new methods. Better methods. Methods that are appropriate to the present century.Sabine Hossenfelder, “Why the Foundations of Physics Have Not Progressed For 40 Years” at Slashdot
She favors resolving inconsistencies over developing new theories.
A recent swish of the broom: Sabine Hossenfelder: Physicists’ Theories Of How The Universe Began “Aren’t Any Better Than Traditional Tales Of Creation” The combox is hilarious; don’t miss it. Hossenfelder is not backing down (so far).
