Dr. Brian Greene is an American professor of physics at Colombia University and one of the top minds in super string theory.
Despite Greene's Doctorate in theoretical physics, Stephen will not trust subatomic particles until they appear on The Report to engage in our national debate. If they don't, they're cowards.
In The NestEdit
String theory can be easily explained after first gaining a deep understanding of quantum mechanics which requires detailed knowledge of the Theory of Relativity. It's just that simple. Critics of string theory say that it is meaningless because its predictions can't be observed with fancy science machines. Stephen says it's meaningless because its predictions can't be observed with your gut.
The Arrogance Of The EggheadsEdit
Greene represents a community of scientistas who believe that a unified theory of physics can describe the entire universe. But the 'strings' they so desperately cling to are "too small to be seen." They can just say things and not have to prove them, unlike religion. Still, Greene claims these strings look and vibrate like strings on a tiny violin.
The theory is so elaborate and hard to grasp that Stephen called on Occam's Razor to prove that Intelligent Design is a much better explanation for the Universe. Greene tried to explain that string theory relies on cold, hard facts, but facts are for people who think too much with their heads and not enough with their guts.
The Bottom LineEdit
Greene is basically saying we descended from monkeys. That's ridiculous; the only thing that comes close to proving that heretical theory is the existence of Alan Colmes, and there is no conclusive evidence that he is human.
