    Has any evidence been uncovered which might lend support to loop quantum gravity? I know that string theory is all the rage but the mathematical complexity and prediction of additional exotic particles and forces give me doubts. Does anyone personally have a preference between the two theories?

    Even the biggest guns of string theory say
    the mathematics of the theory will not be
    figured out for another 50 years.

    I would much prefer to see a dramatic, and
    shorter-term advance, the kind of which has
    not been seen, as far as I know, since the
    Electroweak breakthrough of the 1970s- over
    30 years ago.

    If loop theory can do it sooner than string
    theory, that would suit me fine.

    Given the set-up, you knocked it down. Would rep, but need to spread it around.

    And BTW... I'm on to your question asking, I know where you're pulling these from ;)
