    Sting created the universe. Its less of a theory and more of a self delusion, but he has managed to convince others.

    Ok let me repeat the cliche " Is Mathematical beauty enough in the absence of testable predictions?"Your views?

    Thanks for posting this. I watched part of the Einstein video. Hope to finish it this weekend. The other day I picked up a special edition of Discover magazine that is all about Einstein. There's a fun section in the back called "20 things you didn't know about relativity."

    The first three:

    1 Who invented relativity? Bzzzt—wrong. Galileo hit on the idea in 1639, when he showed that a falling object behaves the same way on a moving ship as it does in a motionless building.

    2 And Einstein didn’t call it relativity. The word never appears in his original 1905 paper, “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies,” and he hated the term, preferring “invariance theory” (because the laws of physics look the same to all observers—nothing “relative” about it).

    3 Space-time continuum? Nope, that’s not Einstein either. The idea of time as the fourth dimension came from Hermann Minkowski, one of Einstein’s professors, who once called him a “lazy dog.”

    Is this the band “Sting”?
    I always thought they would do great things.

    I've just watched the documentary on Hawking and black holes with Kaku in it, I think String theory is dubious myself, but I would absolutely love to be wrong. I just don't think I am. :smile:

    I've seen most of this before though. It's a really good documentary for laymen and academics alike.

    I don't understand why theoretically physicists are trying to create a "theory of everything". Wouldn't that just put them out of a job? :wink:
