It would be pointless as you have clearly not understood them.
I certainly do not understand most details - I lack the raw intelligence and mathematical proficiency - but I certainly understand the watered-down versions in the books you mention which I have both read.
For example, Woit’s Not Even Wrong is not arguing against string theory per se but at it’s undeserved dominance in modern physics research,
he is very well arguing aginst SS theory - not just its dominance - read it again!
while Smolin’s The Trouble With Physics is more critical of string theory, but then it is written by the principle advocate of the competing theory of loop quantum gravity, so this is only to be expected.
what a great argument - because I have a competing theory I can not criticise SS? well, that would certainly put all other critics of SS out of your loop too. all critics worth the name have a competing theory!
Nor is it correct that string theory makes no predictions,
I stand corrected - BUT what a great result for all the man-years and $$$ invested - in 2008 we will know and I would bet against SS at this time.
String theory itself is an offshoot of the ‘standard model’ of quantum mechanics,
what standard model would that be? not the one I know.
acknowledged by both Smolin and Woit as one of the most successful scientific theories ever.
you cant be serious - except you define “success” in purely financial (pocket filler for professors) or mathematical terms. NOTHING OF ANY VALUE in practical terms has come of it - ever!
Red shift has not been proved wrong, it is an observed fact.
An attempt was made to prove the Big Bang by searching for the “Cosmic Background Radiation”, the presumed energy echo from the primordial explosion. and indeed a radio noise signal was picked up. The discoverers of the Cosmic Background Radiation assumed the signal meant what they thought it did and could have no alternative explanation. The discovery of the Cosmic Background Radiation was then heralded as final proof of the Big Bang theory, and those institutions invested in that theory celebrated.
But just as the theory of epicycles did not accurately predict the observed motion of the planets, the Big Bang Theory turned out to be less than accurate about the radiation signal detected in space. When the satellite COBE was sent up to analyze the Cosmic Background Radiation, it discovered instead of the smooth featureless glow predicted by the cosmologists a highly complex and detailed structure. Yet again, rather than question the prime assumption that the signal being analyzed was actually from a supposed “Big Bang”, research was encouraged to find a way to fit the data into the existing theory, again on the assumption that the signal detected could not be from any other source.
there is more - just google >“Red shift” invalidated<
Wrong again. OGOP means that a gene codes for at most one polypeptide
I know all about it - in fact genetic was my stronghold. I still read a lot about it and just finished the Handbook of the Biology of Aging, Sixth Edition. it is all in there.
the PERCENTAGE OF Junk DNA does invalidate the theory that all polypeptid based structures are coded in core DNA. where is the information needed to build a human? not in the DNA sequence.
Darwin was a thief btw - he was NOT the inventor of his theory but a unknown scientist who sent him his manuscript (I forgot the name but google would probably come up with it)
the theory was quite remarkable in its time but today archeology does not confirm most data darwinistic biology would predict.
if you have read up on biology you must know this to be a fact - it isnt even skeptcism - its plain ol’ science.
I will outline the simple example of the development of the bird’s wing.
how do you suggest that this complex biological structure developed by darwinistic means (survival of the fittest)? it is coded by a plethora of genes. any one of them faulty or not-yet-existing makes a proto-bird easy prey. half a wing is not good enough to fly and not good for anything else either. how long does it take for accidental mutation to hit the right cord to make the wing work in all its aspects?
