    String Theory or Loop Quantum Gravity?

    Which of these two theories do you believe best unify General Relativity with Quantum Mechanics?

    I believe in the Universe was created in 7 Days.

    EDIT: EINSTEIN FTW!!!

    "EINSTEIN FTW!!!": I regret to inform you that even Einstein was wrong about things, one the most famous of his screw up's was his Cosmological Constant

    "Einstein first proposed the cosmological constant (not to be confused with the Hubble Constant) usually symbolized by the greek letter "lambda" (Λ), as a mathematical fix to the theory of general relativity. In its simplest form, general relativity predicted that the universe must either expand or contract. Einstein thought the universe was static, so he added this new term to stop the expansion. Friedmann, a Russian mathematician, realized that this was an unstable fix, like balancing a pencil on its point, and proposed an expanding universe model, now called the Big Bang theory. When Hubble's study of nearby galaxies showed that the universe was in fact expanding, Einstein regretted modifying his elegant theory and viewed the cosmological constant term as his "greatest mistake"."

    LQG.


    1) It is widely believed that any theory of quantum gravity would require extremely high energies to probe directly, higher by orders of magnitude than those that current experiments such as the Large Hadron Collider can reach.

    2) String theory as it is currently understood has a huge number of equally possible solutions, called string vacua and these vacua might be sufficiently diverse to explain almost any phenomena we might observe at lower energies.

    Nuff said.

    Can you link your source?

    Google the text.
    I think its obvious.
    I did some research on this.. and that basically sums up my personal conclusion.
