That's really all it comes down to. Until they get over that 10^500th solutions nonsense and give us something we can straight up test, yes or no, it's more metaphysics than physics.

I agree a lot of good physics is theoretical, but a LOT of bad physics is too.


What on Earth are you saying? Of course it makes testable predictions. I've already listed one.

Alright, what sort of energies will create string-balls? (Micro black holes can already be created and destroyed through simple relativistic acceleration).

Let me guess. The solution lies in a field given by the solution sets to certain mathematical functions related to D-Branes. Most solutions put it at above LHC energy, some below.
