    what about strongly disagree... because i would have chosen that over the latter


    Only the mind can think twice simultaneously about a subject, but only one thing can inexorably come out of it. A choice.

    I see this argument as a typical pre-concept of people, which never showed a real interest to understand the bible, and the reason of certain things, why they happened. If i explain you, what Gods intent was, and the reason, these things happened, you will certainly come with the next argument, and then the next. And the final will be, no outcome, or change of opinion. I am quit sure, you have made up your mind already, don't you ?

    Would any or all of the "strongly disagree" voters please explain why they voted that way, and in some detail. Hint You will need some heavy duty math to make any sort of argument, but obviously, having given a strong opinion, you are all up for that.

    Right?

    i believe lol

    The word "believe" is quite useless in Science. Please refrain from ever using it again in any intellectual forum, especially ones that deals with empirical phenomena usually invisible to the naked eye.

    Your question is quite meaningless.

    There are not just a single string theory.

    Secondly string theory is not really a theory at all but rather a class of approaches to the development of a new theory of physics that would encompass both elementary particle physics (the current realm of the electroweak theory and quantum chromodynamics) and gravity. It is not fully developed, and hence there is not really anything to believe in at the moment.

    Finally this is physics not religion. It is not a matter of belief but a matter of whether a theory can be constructed the provides accurate predictions of real physical phenomena. Belief has nothing to do with the issue of validity of a physical theory, and only is guide during the research process.

    So, do I think string theory provides a valuable contribution to the overall research effort to find a unification of quantum mechanics with gravity ? Yes. Do I think it provides a definitive answer -- that question can be answered factually and definitively and the answer is NO.
