    After reading about the concepts of String Theory, I was wondering if there could ever be a 'smallest particle' the 'uncuttable' as if strings are the last stage, what is a string made of?

    It makes me think of 'Who made God?'


    Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.

    No one made god, because god does not exist.

    I do not like string theory...to me its pointless to even think about it. I see too many contradictions and guesses that are not based on empirical evidence.

    A string is actually a one dimensional band of energy, different vibrations frequencies and amplitudes allow for different elementary particles to be observed such as the various quarks and electrons etc. If you consider all matter to be created from these vibrating bands of energy then it is easier to explain several phenomena including one of the most widely controversial, wave/particle duality.

    I think physicists became too anxious and forced themselves to come up with string theory so that they would have something to think about.

    Indeed that is the general consensus but hopefully the LHC will clear up a few problems in that area.

    Possibly, he must need a very resilient nervous system considering the kind of people that worship him

    i thought quarkes were the ultimate particles and nothing exists then.
