Conclusion Hypothesis = String theory makes sense.
Trying to verify it through observation = Large Hadron Collider.


ETA: I'm not disagreeing with you here, just trying to apply it to another scenario.

Small correction there ;)

So? Theoretical physicists can't draw conclusions from a hypothesis?

M-theory based on its mathmatical coherence and accuracy makes sense to them, no?

It's a matter of chronology.

Hypothesis --> Test ---> validation ----> conclusion.
