The probability (in my Bayesian estimation) that the LHC will discover BSM physics has gone from fairly likely (as witnessed by my previous willingness to take even-odds) to rather unlikely. N.B.: that’s not quite the same thing as saying that there’s no BSM physics at these energies; rather that, if it’s there, the LHC won’t be able to see it (at least, not without accumulating many years worth of data).http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=6069
I thought there was something new in this field, until Greene started to talked about the LHC which wasn't yet in operation. That video was posted on youtube in 2008. That's fucking old news. Six years after, the LHC hasn't confirmed ST, and isn't likely to do so in the near future. Here's a more sober and updated view (from 2013):
What happens when all this searching finds out how God's mind works---and there is nothing there? Solitary
It's okay, Casparov has admitted defeat.See: http://atheistforums.com/index.php?topic=4770.msg1017170#msg1017170
It's a slow day... well, not exactly. I'm working on my next blog - Effective Field Theory - heavy stuff, and I need some break time... and Casparov is perfect a scapegoat to poke fun at... I'm sadistic by nature...
