The balloon analogy simply serves to dispel a particular misunderstanding. It shows how space can expand, causing increasing distance between them, while not causing the expansion of the things within it.

Yes exactly. When reading the wording of the OP and the direction this thread was going it seemed that people were pushing the anology too far.

The string theory isn't a scientific theory, right? As it's not falsisiable.

Yes string theory is a scientific theory.
